Scale isn't the only thing that makes TV attractive to big brands. It's also the fully-baked measurement tools and ad models. GroupM's Michael Bologna tells us what's changing.
Digital holds numerous opportunities for brands, including the ability to hyper-target ads to reach predisposed audiences and increased efficiency in not having to create campaigns that work for any and every demographic.
Big brands have been dipping their toes in the digital waters for a long time. But is digital ready for the giants to jump in and bring their agencies, internal structures, and measurement models with them? Ask people in 10 different roles, and you'll get 10 different answers. Here's the agency view from the well-spoken Michael Bologna, Director of Emerging Communications for GroupM, as he talks with Jordan Berg, Questus Co-Founder and Partner.
"Once we get to a point where we can can accurately account for an impression across the various screens, using the same metric, guaranteeing the demography, at a similar CPM, then I think we have a truly screen-agnostic video distribution plan. And I think that's what a lot of the leading advertisers like Procter & Gamble are going to be heading towards."
