  • The Tool
  • Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, theegg of the phoenix. -Christina BaldwinWhenever you find yourself on the side of themajority, it is time to pause and reflect. -Mark Twain
  • Traditional Media PlatformsEmerging Media Platforms 23
  • Background • CBS Interactive partnered with Insight Express to better understand the flow emerging between the “three screens” – TV, Internet and mobile – utilizing a cross-platform survey • The goals of this study were to delve into initial questions: – Do consumers have specific content they consume on each screen? How does content flow from one screen to another? – How can advertisers follow users across the different screens they use? • Special attention within the survey and in this analysis was given to the emerging screen of mobile24
  • The Need to be Connected is Pervasive• Over one quarter (76%) of people reach for one of the 3 screens as first choice each morning• Mobile recruited users were over 3x more likely to say check mobile device than total respondents• Dominance exhibited in mobile is not seen by dotcom or TV panel consumers to their relative platforms First Thing Consumers Do In Morning 17% 54% of mobile recruited consumers 24% Check mobile device Check computer Turn on TV None of these 27% 32% 34% of TV Panel recruited consumers 36% of dotcom recruited consumers 25
  • Mobile Affinity is Coming on Strong ONCE YOU GO MOBILE, YOU DON’T GO BACK • 80% of Mobile recruited say they’re increasingly using their mobile device for things they used to do on their computer – 11% of TV and 22% of Dotcom recruited say they are • Nearly two thirds (61%) of Mobile recruited are replacing dotcom behavior by going to the same sites on their mobile devices as on their computer – The app market will drive usage/experiences different from dotcom26
  • Consumers Expect to be Messaged to Differently on the Different Screens Top answer to “Has TV Panel CBS CBS advertising that…” Dotcom Mobile • TV = Impact and entertaining Internet on • INTERNET = Specific andKeeps you up to date TV (62%) TV (39%) computer (48%) informativeYou notice TV (59%) TV (52%) TV (49%) • MOBILE = Specific and useful TV (43%) & Internet onIs useful to you Internet on computer (51%) Mobile (34%) Computer (41%)Is entertaining TV (67%) TV (57%) TV (52%) Internet onYou are likely to act on TV (45%) computer (41%) TV (34%) Internet onIs targeted to my interests TV (41%) computer (51%) Mobile (29%) 27
  • 3 Screen Learnings • Screen preferences by content exist • Mobile users aren’t simply a subset of online consumers • TV and mobile play well together • To date, consumers see distinct benefits of advertising messaging by screen • Need for fully integrated 3-screen communication plan to completely reach audiences28
