Mediaocean CRO, Ramsey McGrory, outlines a Media Hierarchy of Needs that explains the transformational change happening in each critical layer from hardware & software to regulation, data, process, people & org.
TV viewers today are increasingly fragmented, using multiple devices, services, and subscriptions. Despite the challenges for marketers, this is actually an opportunity to reach audiences who are consuming more TV in deeper, more meaningful ways. Preferring the approach that better meets their needs, rather than perpetuating decades of TV imposing its own demands on them.
Mediaocean, the leading software provider for the advertising world, and 4C Insights (4C), a data science and media technology company, today announced a new partnership to integrate planning, buying, and measurement across social media and linear television for greater insights and return on ad spend (ROAS).
VideoAmp, the integrated TV operating system for advertising, today announced it has raised $21.4 million in a Series B funding round led by Mediaocean, with additional investment from German media giant RTL Group, GoAhead Ventures, StartUp Capital Ventures, Anthem Venture Partners, Wavemaker Partners & Simon Equity Partners. This round brings the total funds raised by the company to $36.6 million.
Marketers frequently reference the John Wannamaker quote, “Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is, I don't know which half” when talking about their struggle with advertising spend, especially for cross-channel campaigns. But to overcome this, marketers can apply four principles of direct-response to improve their understanding of return on ad spend.
