Last year, Facebook launched TRP buying to boost TV campaigns for broadcasters. Now marketers can buy video ads on Facebook and Instagram based on things like television viewership and publisher data. In its latest deal with programmatic ad platform TubeMogul, Facebook extends the TV audience onto digital.
Social is not about to kill TV… yet. For now, there can be a symbiotic relationship that suits everyone involved. If marketers miss audiences with their TV ads, they can still reach them on social. Well, on Facebook. This is exactly what TubeMogul allows them to do – target people on Facebook or Instagram who they’ve missed on TV. By using data from Nielsen, and integrating with Facebook’s API, TubeMogul can effectively gain KPI metrics like comments, likes, shares, video completion rates, as well as purchase intent and sentiment. As TubeMogul CEO Brett Wilson explains
Facebook is usually seen as a lower funnel, direct response driver. With this approach, this idea is being turned on its head. In tests, Expedia has been using Facebook to expand reach and frequency. After running a TV ad, the company used the data to target Facebook users and therefore fill in the gaps. The campaign has made Expedia think again about how much to invest in digital. Vic Walia, Expedia’s senior director of brand marketing, explained
