  • TV/Search synchronization: how to generate more conversions

Thanks to TV, you can capture the attention of millions of people in front of their screens. 43.3 million every day, to be precise, according to the French statistics agency Médiamétrie. And when we talk about attention, we mean captivated people. We are talking about people sitting comfortably at home in front of a big screen, in 4K no less.  

Once you have captured their attention and raised their curiosity with your advertising spot, viewers will want to find out more about what you have to offer, by going online. The most dedicated will have memorized your website address, but most will have the reflex of typing your brand name or sector of activity into a search engine, most often Google (93.1%).  

TV/search: increasing website traffic

Synchronizing TV and search increases traffic to the advertiser's website. According to the 2MV study, "TV-Search synchronization: the advertising ping-pong begins", TV advertising leads to an average +60% increase in search engine queries.  

To achieve this, it is possible to increase bids on branded and/or non-branded searches at the time of TV appearances. This allows you to appear higher in the search results and increases the chances of attracting TV engagement to your site. 

Example: a cosmetics brand can increase the bids on the search keywords "lipstick" and "mascara" when its TV commercial airs. This will attract even more new visitors to its website who are interested in its products. 

TV/seach: gaining visibility

To guarantee brand visibility on search engines, bids for brand queries can be increased during broadcasts. This also prevents click "cannibalization" and maintains the brand's position in search results. 

Example: A clothing brand can increase bids on the search keywords "clothing brand" during the broadcast of its TV ad. This will enable it to maintain its position in search results and avoid being cannibalized by its competitors. 

TV/search: guerrilla marketing

You can also turn your competitors' strength against them, like a marketing judoka. How can you do this? By capturing part of the drive-to-web impact of a competitor's campaign.  

You can do this by creating content or marketing actions targeted at the viewers of a competitor's campaign. This allows you to reach a new audience and increase brand awareness. 

Example: A video game brand might create a comedy video parodying a competitor's TV ad. This video will be broadcast on social networks at the same time as the competitor's TV ad. This will enable the brand to reach a new audience and create buzz.
