Aussie-first Study To Change How Advertisers Think About Video

The impact that viewability on all screens has on sales will be revealed in a unique study with leading academic Dr Karen Nelson-Field at the ReThinkTV marketing forum next month in Sydney.

The study, known as The Benchmark Series, will examine topics such as the impact of viewability, sponsorship, premium content and viewing device to interrogate the effectiveness of video advertising across devices and across platforms.

This instalment of The Benchmark Series tackles the topic of viewability.

The findings on viewability will show that TV delivers more sales impact and attention than advertising in any online environment.

The study is one of a number of reports from the newly-created ThinkTV Smart Lab, an independent laboratory established to carry out cutting-edge research into the performance of TV advertising and led by Dr Karen Nelson-Field (pictured above), Professor of Media Innovation at the University of Adelaide.

The laboratory’s two-year research program will help advertisers and media agencies get the best out of TV by providing robust evidence and greater clarity about how multi-platform TV advertising delivers business results.

Dr Nelson-Field said the viewability results from The Benchmark Series will fundamentally change how advertisers think about video advertising.

“Among other findings, we found that 100 per cent viewable inventory provides twice the ROI than the current online video standard, regardless of time spent viewing,” she said.

“Non-premium digital environments that trade on less than 100 per cent viewability have limited return on advertising spend.”

ThinkTV CEO Kim Portrate said: “We are committed to proving the efficacy and return on investment of TV advertising, and The Benchmark Series will complement our $1 million Payback Australia study to debunk the myth that TV advertising is less effective than other channels.

“The viewability findings remove any doubt that advertisers should demand video platforms that provide 100 per cent viewability because the more viewable the ad, the higher the sales impact, irrespective of time spent viewing,” she said.

“This information is absolutely critical for marketers looking to improve campaign effectiveness.”

Dr Nelson-Field will present the full findings of the viewability component of The Benchmark Series at ReThinkTV, along with Richard Basil-Jones from Ebiquity, who will present the full industry report of the Payback Australia study, showing the average return that Australian advertisers are getting from their media investments.

ReThinkTV 2017 will be held on Thursday 14 September at Luna Park in Sydney.
