CTV viewers are digital natives, making them an ideal audience for marketers

It’s no secret that Connected TV viewers spend a lot of their time online. For brands looking to reach their audience across the entire sales funnel, this represents a great opportunity. Because CTV viewers are digital natives, brands can reach them through multiple coordinated ads on all their devices to keep them engaged from the first point of contact, all the way to conversion.

In a January 2018 report, AdReaction found that 47% of those surveyed said ads now fit together better across different formats. What can brands do to capitalize on this? By serving Connected TV ads, and then utilizing CTV’s tracking capabilities, brands can continue to reach their target audience with display and mobile campaigns, driving site traffic and keeping their message top-of-mind.
