Determining Consumer Intent for Automotive Dealership Visits
Placed |2018
In the automotive industry, it is often difficult for companies who pay for advertising to get lower funnel metrics based on consumer behavior in the physical world. As a result, automotive advertisers may be blocked from planning and optimizing campaigns for the shopping behavior they want to drive. By using offline attribution, this hurdle is overcome by advertisers who now leverage offline visitation as a lower-funnel performance metric for analyzing and optimizing automotive campaigns.

The Case for Ad Clouds in Video Advertising
Ad-ID | 2018
Video is rapidly becoming a ubiquitous medium. Once the stronghold of television sets and prime-time viewing, video content has escaped the confines of the living room television and may now be found on devices – and surfaces – of all sizes and forms. Make no mistake, video is still in the living room and a renaissance of high quality content is driving viewership to new levels. However, video is also in hands, on the road, at the checkout counter, at the gas pump, even on the sides of buildings – the list goes on. With this comes the opportunity for advertisers to engage audiences in new ways, reaching them with never-before-possible levels of precision and targeting and presenting them with compelling brand stories that resonate.

SpotX | 2018
Disruption in media has reached a point of normalcy. It’s impossible to read through the trade publications without coming across at least one feature on media companies investing in tech platforms, big-tech firms making plays for content, or whispers of studios eyeing the acquisition of distribution platforms. If you’re a seller or a buyer on the front lines of the TV or digital video business, it’s enough to make your head spin. Disrupting disruption would be the only thing truly disruptive to an industry whose longterm viability lies in simultaneously executing strategies of expansion and consolidation.

Action-Hero Data Research
ExtremeReach | Q1, 2017
We live in a technology powered world. We hear “digital” and we think instant, real-time, automated and seamless.

We gave front line respondents* these word pairings and asked them to pick a point on the scale that most closely reflects how they see digital video activation.

Broadcasters are embracing a new reality as we charge into 2017.

Video Ad Streaming
ExtremeReach | January 2017

Online Video Advertising Effectives
Nielsen Media Lab Study Commissioned by HIRO | August 2016
How do you measure the effect of an online video ad? Engagement metrics (i.e. clicks, VTR and viewability) are easy to monitor and accurate, but the challenge with these digital KPI’s is that they are virtual in their very nature. You will know how many people saw your video ad but you cannot deduct from that how many people actually remembered the ad, liked the brand, and had an intention to buy. In other words, viewability and VTR are KPI’s and not an ROI. In this new Nielsen Media Lab Study that was commissioned by HIRO Media, we try to identify what predicts the effect of the ad and analyze new factors that prove to be more influential then the traditional engagement KPI’s.

Exploring New Video Ad Lengths
YuMe | May 2016

These parameters mean the bad guys will self-select out — because they would never provide full disclosure of their data.
