I made an intentional decision to start a CTV | Streaming | OTT company in January 2018 after 17 years of being a Broadcast Sales Manager. Cratering ratings would not be the only reason to leave broadcast but it is a good start. Why target A 1 rating when you can target the 1 person most likely to buy from you. Ratings had to fall. I am not kicking network TV while it is down. When shows delivered ratings above the mid 20's there simply was not great competition for viewers.
It is what viewers want. 49% choose Ad-Supported options over ad-free. Only 22% go for the higher-priced ad-free versions. It is all about subscribers and if you don't offer what they want they will move to the next provider. Ad-Supported streaming is here to stay. #CTV #Streaming #OTT always getting better for viewers and advertisers.

The other day a friend told me about a show called Finding My Roots on PBS. It is a show where Dr. Henry Gates, a renowned scholar, invites well-known guests on and digs deep into their family roots. Actually, he has a highly skilled team that looks into everything from DNA two birth records in other countries. They go back generations. While this may seem boring, even if you're not into genealogy it is entertaining. After my friend's recommendation, I thought I would give i
We have all seen entertaining, clever, commercials. Some are produced on small budget others are like Hollywood productions featuring famous actors or athletes. I think the most important part of a great commercial is recall. Remembering the advertiser, the product, the feature, and the benefit. This has proven to be a challenge in our over messaged society. Have you ever seen a great ad but forgot the advertiser? chances are you have. Adding a QR code to your local #CTV #OT
