A key industry issue raised at last year’s IAB summit session on Cross-Platform Planning was the fundamental lack of digital video knowledge among cross-media planners, buyers, and creative teams. A limited understanding means planners and buyers are not fully equipped to take advantage of the dynamic capabilities of digital video. With 56% of U.S. Adults now owning a Streaming Enabled TV (a 56% rise from 2015)*, this skill set is more crucial than ever.
To address this knowledge gap, IAB developed a curriculum to help TV planners, highlighting the unique factors and considerations involved in cross-platform planning and buying. The IAB’s new Cross-Platform Video Training was developed in partnership with a core working group of planners and buyers from across leading agencies such as: Initiative, Mediabrands North America, Carat, ZenithOptimedia Group and BPN Worldwide.
The curriculum focuses specifically on digital video and advanced TV ecosystems; audience-based planning strategies (including addressability and audience data sources); programmatic video buying; digital video creative considerations; video ad serving and trafficking best practices; as well as managing and reporting on video ad campaign success and optimization considerations.
The curriculum has been specifically designed for professionals with at least 1 – 2 years of traditional TV planning/buying experience. Both planners and buyers can benefit from attending this class and actively engaging in the complete process of designing campaigns and achieving video advertising success.
