Start-ups or large groups, which one of us?
We won't lie to each other, television has long attracted large groups, and seemed to be the prerogative of communication mammoths, often focusing only on their brand image, without leaving much room for small actors. 80% of the TV budget is monopolized by branding advertisers.
Indeed, start-ups and pure players were often frightened by the vertiginous blow that investing into television represented and too many complications, time and money. However, things have changed, and television is no longer just the preserve of large groups.
Smaller structures are increasingly investing in television, aware that this medium remains the most powerful of the world. For many people, television remains a unique way to make oneself known to as many people as possible in a relatively short period of time. Start-ups and pure players increasingly see television as a particularly effective acquisition lever. For example, there is an increase in natural traffic on an advertiser's website during its TV wave by +55%. When you dissect, you can see that among pure players this increase reaches 66%, unlike 43% among multi-channel players (source: Realytics - Campaigns tracked between July 2016 and June 2017 eligible for analysis).
In addition, all actors realize that viewers have changed the way they consume television. Indeed, more and more people are watching it with a second screen in their hands: 2/3 of French viewers use another screen in front of the television, and 1/3 look for information about the brand after broadcasting a spot (Screen 360 study - Médiamétrie).
Closer and closer to digital, television no longer frightens start-ups, who are familiar with the way digital works and seem to be more comfortable with ultra-powerful media. It is an ideal, fast and efficient way to set up your brand. And, in addition, it is now possible to monitor and measure the performance of your TV spots in digital, just as it is possible to do in digital, thanks in particular to TV analytics tools.
