  • Mobile Video: Understanding the On-the-Go Viewer [VIDEO]

    Advertising in mobile video is an important revenue stream for many content providers, so understanding how to optimize the viewer experience is essential.

    At the 9th annual Video Advertising Summit on May 29th, mobile video advertising was the subject of a panel including Henry Embelton (Head of Ad Products and Revenue, Ellation), Dan Hurwitz (Chief Revenue Officer, Penthera), Bobby LaCivita (VP of Research and Measurement, Group Nine Media), and Colin Dixon (Founder and Principal Analyst, nScreenMedia) moderating.
     
    Among the topics discussed were mobile video distribution in social vs. owned and operated properties, which video ad units work best in mobile video, how offline ad-supported mobile video experiences are being enabled, how mobile drives video consumption for younger audiences and key challenges in mobile video given the fragmentation across many different apps/services.

  • How Premium Video Providers are Successfully Transitioning to the OTT Era [VIDEO]

    The OTT era is challenging established premium video providers to adapt their businesses to a totally new set of ground rules. At our 9th annual Video Advertising Summit on May 29th, our opening panel shared their insights on the adaptation process and also what advertisers are looking for in where they allocate budgets in the OTT era.

    The discussion included Rob Aitken (Managing Director, Deloitte Consulting), Danielle DeLauro (EVP, Video Advertising Bureau), Domenic DiMeglio (SVP, Distribution and Operations, CBS Interactive) and James Shears (VP, Advanced Advertising, Extreme Reach) with moderator Mike Shields (Shields Strategic Consulting).

    A few key takeaways: premium video providers may be known for one particular business model today but eventually they're likely to utilize a variety of business models, live retains significant consumption and is a a critical part of the viewing mix even for OTT services, advertisers recognize live and on-demand are synergistic in terms of extending reach and attribution is an essential KPI for direct-to-consumer companies using TV advertising that traditional advertisers are emphasizing as well.

  • Interview with Hulu’s SVP and Head of Advertising Sales Peter Naylor [VIDEO]

    Hulu is on the forefront of virtually every major streaming video trend, so the company’s success is a model for others to watch closely. At the 9th annual VideoNuze Video Advertising Summit on May 29th, we were privileged to have Hulu’s SVP and Head of Advertising Sales Peter Naylor as our keynote guest, who I interviewed.

    Peter said that having a “viewer first” approach has been critical for Hulu. That means being respectful of the viewer experience, providing choice and control and capping ad pods at 90 seconds, among other things. Of Hulu’s 82 million monthly viewers, 58 million of them subscribe to a tier that includes ads.

    Peter talks at length about his experience with advertisers and agencies and where they are on the learning curve of moving traditional TV budgets into streaming. He also cites direct-to-consumer, digital-native brands as leaders in being data and attribution focused, aligning them well with Hulu. We cover lots of other topics as well.

    For anyone interested in learning how Hulu is driving change across the video landscape and what’s ahead, the interview is must-see.

  • VideoNuze Podcast #469: Initial Takeaways from Video Ad Summit

    I’m pleased to present the 469th edition of the VideoNuze podcast, with my weekly partner Colin Dixon of nScreenMedia.

    This past Wednesday was VideoNuze’s 9th annual Video Advertising Summit in NYC, and on today’s podcast Colin and I share a few of our initial takeaways (all the session videos will be posted over the next couple of weeks).

    A highlight of the day was the keynote interview I did with Hulu’s SVP and Head of Ad Sales Peter Naylor, who started by noting the incredible evolution Hulu has experienced in 11 short years: from 100% free to 100% paid, from 100% desktop viewing to over 80% connected TV viewing. Peter said the majority of Hulu’s 83 million monthly viewers are in an ad-supported service. Focusing on being “viewer-first” has been critical: capping ad pods at 90 seconds, minimizing intrusiveness, introducing new formats have all played a role. (More on this session when I post the video)

    Overall, Colin and I observed lots of enthusiasm for ad-supported OTT, with many speakers sharing that ad buyers and agencies are recognizing that especially to reach 18-34 year-olds, it’s essential to shift some spending to streaming. Mark Zagorski, CEO of Telaria, framed things well in his presentation: each of us will have a “portfolio of viewing” - paying for a handful of services, but  accessing many more which are free and ad-supported.

    While brand safety, measurement and other considerations are still restraining some buyers, others, especially direct-to-consumer brands (e.g. Peloton, Caspar, etc.) are embracing streaming for its targeting and advanced attribution.

    Lots more to come as I post the individual session videos.

  • Publicis and Mindshare Executives to Share Insights on Intersection of Video/Digital Ad Buying at Video Ad Summit

    I’m pleased to share that we’ll have a featured fireside discussion at the 9th annual Video Advertising Summit with agency executives Jeremy Crandall (SVP, Advanced Video Solutions, Publicis Media) and Christine Peterson (Managing Director, Digital Investment Lead, Mindshare, part of GroupM). Matt Prohaska (CEO and Principal. Prohaska Consulting) will be the interviewer in this featured fireside chat.

    Advertisers and their agencies are demanding that premium video providers enable more of digital’s capabilities: better targeting, measurement, interactivity, cross-screen delivery and attribution. As we all know, there are significant industry-level and company-specific initiatives underway to marry the best of digital with the best of premium video/TV’s traditional brand-building strengths. Connected TVs, which hold strong potential to re-energize the entire TV ad business, are a focal point.

    In this fireside, Christine and Jeremy will take us behind the scenes of where and how digital and premium video/TV are intersecting today, and what the key challenges are ahead. Both have long track records with video, digital and cross-screen ad buying, working for scores of top brands.

    What are these brands demanding of their agencies, what are their most critical KPIs and how are cross-screen campaigns being successfully created? How well-positioned are video providers, TV networks and industry infrastructure to meet buyers’ demands? How are respect for viewers, data, brand safety and programmatic being balanced? Last but not least, what are they critical changes in viewers’ behaviors that inform all video ad buying currently and going forward? These are among the questions Christine and Jeremy will discuss with Matt.

    For anyone in the video industry who is directly or ultimately affected by the decisions video and digital ad buyers are making, this fireside chat will be a must-attend session. It is also a perfect complement to the keynote interview I’ll be doing with Hulu’s SVP/Head of Advertising Peter Naylor.

  • Keynote With Hulu’s SVP/Head of Ad Sales Peter Naylor at May 29th Video Ad Summit

    I’m excited to share that Hulu’s SVP and Head of Advertising Sales Peter Naylor will be our keynote guest at the 9th annual VideoNuze Video Ad Summit on Wednesday, May 29th in NYC. I will be interviewing Peter in a session titled, “Hulu Finds the Winning Formula by Putting Viewers First.”

    Hulu has become an industry leader in connected TV and video advertising, SVOD, virtual pay-TV, original programming, digital distribution and cross-platform user experiences. Hulu now reaches over 50 million viewers with its ad-supported service, making it the largest addressable marketplace for brands in the industry.

    In this keynote interview Peter will share insights about all of these topics and in particular, how Hulu’s dramatic innovation of TV’s advertising experience is driving change across the medium.

    Hulu is playing a key role in every one of the top trends in the industry. It is also entering an even more consequential next chapter - becoming majority owned by Disney and a key part of Disney’s OTT strategy, moving to the front of the pack in the virtual pay-TV industry and aggressively promoting its ad-supported SVOD service by recently reducing its monthly price and also offering it at no extra charge for Spotify Premium members (moves which will contribute to Hulu generating $2.7 billion in ad revenue by 2021, according to eMarketer's latest forecast).

    I’ve known Peter for many years and I’m confident his perspectives will be incredibly valuable for anyone who is trying to learn from Hulu’s industry leadership.
