Shared Lessons for Linear TV and AVOD
With PMG since 2012, David Gong leads marketing initiatives at PMG, drawing on his past experience at agencies, publishers, and industry.
As TV networks jump feet-first into ad-supported streaming services, there are lessons that its sellers could learn from AVOD players, and vice versa. That’s the premise of a recent AdExchanger article, which featured commentary from PMG’s Natalee Geldert.
The story listed out three main lessons:
Bring AVOD’s lighter ad loads to linear
Niche audiences can still bring branding opportunities
Cross-channel measurement is valuable, but remember relationships matter
Investing in relationships are key, according to Geldert, who said, “Audience buying and platforms can only get you so far.” The article also included Geldert’s suggestion that networks should “program for binge viewing as they move into ad-supported streaming – and experiment with how to bring that experience back to linear TV.”
