Connected TV Advertising vs OTT Advertising

Connected TV Advertising vs OTT Advertising

What’s the difference? There isn’t one — they are just different names for the same thing. Whether you’re looking for a Connected TV advertising platform to launch CTV ads, or an OTT advertising platform to access OTT inventory, SteelHouse has got you covered.

Is Connected TV Considered Addressable TV Advertising?

Addressable TV generally refers to the ability to show different ads to different viewers during a broadcast on traditional TV. Connected TV advertising leverages detailed targeting capabilities to allow advertisers to serve different ads to viewers streaming the same show on Connected TV. They’re similar, but advertising on Connected TV is more effective.

Good question, there are several differences between SteelHouse Performance TV and paid search advertising. Let us break it down for you.

Targeting
SteelHouse Performance TV advertising works by allowing you to select your target audience with either 1st or 3rd party audience data while paid search primarily works by selecting keywords that your target audience may be searching for on search engines. Because it may be difficult to select the right keywords that may convert, selecting an audience using buyer intent signals and previous behavior patterns using SteelHouse Performance TV advertising may help compliment your media mix.

Cost
Traditionally, paid search visit costs are calculated using a cost per click metric, while a visit from a viewer who saw your SteelHouse Performance TV ad then visits your website is called a “site visit.” Terminology aside, these two metrics are most comparable to each other and SteelHouse Performance TV has been able to deliver a cost per site visit comparable to that of non-branded paid search, roughly within the range of $2 – $12.

Media and Delivery
Paid search is typically displayed as a plain text ad to users who searched using a search term that you are bidding on. The text ad is then served on search engine results above and below other paid and organic listings.

On the other hand, SteelHouse Performance TV advertising brings your messaging to life through the use of your own video creatives. Your TV commercial is unskippable and streamed on premium networks and devices while users are engaged in viewing their favorite shows and movies.

Reporting
With SteelHouse Performance TV, you are able to report on your advertising similar to paid search reporting. You can see metrics such as impressions, site visit rate, cost, revenue, and ROAS on the network and audience level. All of this data is available in both Google Analytics and on the SteelHouse Advertising Suite. The ability to track the effect and performance of TV commercials is now available with SteelHouse Performance TV.
