10 Killer facts - DIMENSION

  1. 1. DIMENSION 10 KILLER FACTS April 2017
  2. 2. Today online and more established media forms co-exist, but how do consumers feel about the increasingly sophisticated methods brands use to reach and influence them? And what are the key challenges facing the industry today?
  3. 3. DIMENSION by Kantar Media combines the views of 5,000 ‘connected adults’* across the UK, US, France, Brazil and China and 40 leaders* from all sides of the industry. This deck highlights the top 10 killer facts Methodology: * Connected consumer = 5,213 adults (aged over 18 years old) across five of the world’s largest advertising markets: Brazil (1,097), China (1,067), France (1,000), UK (1,035) and the US (1,014 interviews). Interviews were conducted by Lightspeed between 19th Oct - 14th Dec 2016. Consumers must have had access to the internet via both a PC/laptop (at home or work) and a personally owned mobile device be that a smartphone or a tablet. * Leaders = depth interviews with 40 industry leaders based in Brazil (12), France (9), UK (12) and the US (7). 14 came from agencies (media & PR), 10 from advertisers, 9 from media owners, 7 from ad tech organisations and trade bodies CONSUMER SAMPLE 5,213 connected adults 18+ years old 55% live in an urban setting 5 major ad markets LEADER SAMPLE 14 agencies 10 from advertisers 9 media owners 7 adtech organisations / trade bodies

  7. 7. Consumers are aware of, and even welcome, specificity in targeting and relevance in content 2
  8. 8. 8Base: 5,213 connected adults. say they sometimes or often see ads aimed at them (89% of HEAVY) agree they prefer ads that are relevant to them say such ads are more interesting to them say more ads should be specifically targeted to them
  9. 9. Multi-media campaigns are being noticed and becoming an expectation of successful brands 3
  10. 10. 10Base: 5,213 connected adults. 85% claimed they notice multi-media campaigns • 43% more likely to go online to learn more about the brand • 46% likely look for the brand in store 51% think this is a good way of communicating with them • 29% say they’re more likely to notice • A higher proportion of HEAVY users (39% vs 22% of total sample) think this approach helps them to understand what the brand offers
  11. 11. Personalisation is noticed and welcomed… 4
  12. 12. 12 55% of respondents agree that ads that are specifically shown or tailored to them are more interesting than other ads Base: 5,213 connected adults.
  13. 13. …but the industry can improve what we reach consumers with online 5
  14. 14. 14Base: 5,213 connected adults. We have become so bombarded by advertising I don’t take any notice of it anymore. Respondent, UK agree/strongly agree that some ads are shown too often (66% of HEAVY) agree/strongly agree they often see ads for something they’ve already bought
  15. 15. We are at risk of feeding ad blocking 6
  16. 16. 16Base: 5,213 connected adults. 20% say they always use adblocker software (a further 34% say they ‘sometimes’ use a blocker) Amongst those with adblockers, 47% claim to like or tolerate advertising, suggesting that their concern is with aspects of online advertising as opposed to with advertising as a whole
  18. 18. Data – a challenge and opportunity 7
  19. 19. 19 Leaders were united in their views that the breadth and depth of the data now available and accessible from multiple sources is of a scale we haven’t seen before. This brings both opportunities… We’re getting to a stage of development where technology can not only help the advertiser gain greater efficiency in connecting with a precise audience target, but also do so in a manner that enables delivery of a more relevant commercial message – and then allow for optimization of those efforts in near real time. Jane Clarke, CIMM, US What tells me whether what I buy has good data quality? I repeat: third-party tools. Erik-Marie Bion, AOL Advertising, France ...and challenges… Just because something is quantified does not necessarily mean that it is either accurate or objective. The phrase ‘not all data is equal’ was used by many. CONSUMERS VIEW I ‘often’ or ‘sometimes’ see ads that I consider to be specifically shown to, or tailored for me. Often + sometimes Base: 5,213 connected adults.
  20. 20. Perfect data storm – just because we can doesn’t mean we should… 8
  21. 21. 21 The sheer quantity and short-term nature of what’s out there inevitably leads to a degree of automation in how ad dollars are spent. No bad thing, but … Many felt the industry is in danger of becoming a slave to data rather than mastering it. We have the enabling technologies and we know how to use the data better, we have to ensure that we avoid over-targeting and that we never forget the top of the purchase funnel [the bit that builds the brand]. Simon Daglish, ITV, UK CONSUMERS VIEW I would like to have more control over the types of advertising that I see online. Agree + strongly agree
  22. 22. The importance of context 9
  23. 23. 23 CONSUMERS VIEW I’m aware of ads being a good fit with the context in which they appear. Consumer usage of mobile (has) exploded. I think (we) really underestimated in terms of how quickly consumers have adopted it. How do we engage with our audiences on mobile devices? How do we become useful for them in their daily lives on mobile devices? It’s a very, very different mind-set than we had to deal with before when it was very much a push world. And now obviously with the mobile device, (everything) is much more personalised. Penry Price, LinkedIn, US
  24. 24. From multiple to cross media – an inclusive cross-channel measurement system is desirable 10
  25. 25. 25 Most leaders recognised the debate was moving away from simply looking at multiple channels, and measuring each within its own silo, towards the need for more consumer-centric planning. I think we have got to find metrics that are more holistic but also simpler. The best businesses are able to organize and rally a team around delivering a simple goal. Paul Frampton, Havas Media, UK If such a measurement approach were to be adopted it would help advertisers go some way towards reducing the negatives we heard from consumers around excessive repetition.
