  • 6. Not your Father’s primetime… Broadcasters know that their audience has shifted: • Live / broadcast TV • DVR • Internet (video, Twitter) Dealers know the same about their customers: • Traditional media • Digital advertising • Social media • Multi-screens Thursday, May 22, 14
  • 7. Nielsen is responding To give networks and advertisers a better picture, Nielsen is now counting DVR (Live+3, Live+7), Twitter, mobile devices, web-linked TVs, and more Thursday, May 22, 14

  • 11. Who’s your demographic? Thursday, May 22, 14
  • 12. Why demographics matter For a TV network, it’s all about selling advertising to generate revenue • To sell advertising, networks need viewers • Getting viewers requires programming that speaks to an audience • Speaking to an audience requires knowing your audience Thursday, May 22, 14
  • 13. Targeting messaging Networks often try to target a specific demographic with programming tailored to them. Targeting shows help sell targeted advertising Ever watched a show and thought, “Man, this is awful”? (It could just be a crappy show) But you could also not be in the target demographic… Thursday, May 22, 14
  • 14. However, sometimes networks will hit the jackpot by appealing to the masses Knowing the formula NCIS #2Show on TV 35 millionWeekly viewers (Live+7) 200+Territories licensed around the world Thursday, May 22, 14
  • 15. NCIS: What’s the formula? • Boy-ishly appealing star • Short dialog; crimes on the lighter side • Lots of “safe” humor • Self-contained episodes (good for syndication) Knowing the formula Thursday, May 22, 14
  • 16. Dealers don’t need to appeal to the masses The good news: You don’t need to appeal to everyone • Data exists today to pinpoint who your customers are in your DMA / PMA, ZIP by ZIP, and household by household • Boston DMA example of new BMW owners: ZIP: 01776 ZIP: 02062 Average income $184,000 $175,000 Channel Email (3:1 vs. Direct Mail) Email (3:1 vs. All others) Advertising receptivity Newspaper (Over others) Traditional + digital Targeting Brand strength, service, relationships Incentives, endorsements Thursday, May 22, 14

  • 23. Back to quality As dealers, we always have numbers thrown at us • Think PPC, with impressions and click-throughs being popular metrics • Or VDPs as a measure of website effectiveness • These can be good indicators of exposure, but it’s important to dig deeper: • Bounce rate • On-site engagement • Conversion rate Thursday, May 22, 14
