  • We are so disrespecting people’s time that they are spending more and more time in advertising-free environments (e.g. Netflix). Consequently, we expect less advertising, perhaps 20-30%, within three to five years.
  • About “walled gardens” (e.g. Google and Facebook) – remember that it is advertisers who control their revenue.
  • The more data you have the stronger you can be, but what questions are you trying to answer with your data?
  • Data Analysts/Scientists + Storytelling capabilities = Future Leaders.
  • In this ecosystem you can no longer separate media from creative.

Is the TV Industry Ready for Ad Ratings (Artie Bulgrin, EVP, Media Science) for CIMM
The MRC has introduced a framework for a video ad measurement standard that could unify linear TV and digital video platforms by measuring individual viewable ad units across platforms using a duration-weighted impression. This standard would also include the capability to measure net reach and duplication of audiences across platforms. The results of this study (among 27 influential leaders) indicate that the industry – across all constituencies – is ready to strongly consider such an approach for a number of reasons.
