Efforts for inter-measurable Total Video eco-system in Romania

Advertising, Business, Marketing, OOH / DOOH

Info-Sanatate, GBD Research and Romanian Association for Indoor Advertising have made the first steps towards an inter-measurable Total Video eco-system in Romania, by introducing a Marketing ROI Multiscreen modeling for evaluating the effectiveness of the multiscreen campaigns, using both classical TV stations and indoor TV platforms (digital place-based).

Due to increased needs for transparency regarding the total video campaigns and also the industry requests for multiscreen video campaigns, Info-Sanatate, GBD Research and the Romanian Association for Indoor Advertising organized a think-thank that aimed to create a Marketing ROI Modeling for the multiscreen campaigns in Romania. The discussions took place between March-May 2017 and they were focused on analyzing the complementary value of the two video media types with comparable audience indicators: TV stations and indoor video platforms.

The Marketing ROI Multiscreen model includes audience data and campaign effectiveness indicators which are relevant for analyzing the multiscreen ROI; the model includes the specifics of each video media type in attaining various communication goals (e.g. Quality Builder vs. Reach Builder). The analysis is comprised of five modules: Audience, Campaign Reach, Campaign Effectiveness, Multiscreen Campaign Impact and Post-campaign Incremental Sales.

The analytical initiative was above all a process of integration of a wide range of perspectives and know-how, which guided us towards modeling a ROI analysis on several levels, having at the same time a practical purpose for campaigns evaluation. The Marketing ROI model combines audience research data with estimations and parameters specific to each campaign, offering pre and post campaigns overviews to the advertising clients and facilitating the most appropriate decision

 We wish to emphasize the complementarity of the Indoor TV platforms and the classical TV stations. For Info-Sanatate, the audience it is mainly composed of Light TV Viewers, which are expensive to reach with a 3+/4+ frequency through a standard TV campaign in Romania. During the discussions, we concluded that the specific added value for Info-Sanatate in a multiscreen campaign comes with the possibility to deliver “quality” messages, based on the product characteristics, in a non-aggressive, educational context

The Marketing ROI Multiscreen Model offers the advertising clients and the media agencies a new tool for media evaluation, based on two main criteria:

– The effectiveness of video advertising investment in a media type with no clutter, in an educational context, with editorial topics regarding well being, emotional intelligence, parenting and many positive messages.

– the effectiveness of a media campaign is analyzed using the same media parameters, such as reach, frequency, GRPs, TRPs, sales, providing conclusions which can support the client towards a more effective investment decision

We have designed a very effective communication channel, by limiting the number of Ads to a maximum of 30% of the video playlist. The Ads are automatically inserted between educational and informative video news, there are no “ad breaks” or “ad clutter”. As a support for our advertising clients, Info-Sanatate video administration software allows for the distribution of different messages for each insertion per hour, e.g. if the campaign has four insertions per hour, each insertion can deliver complementary key-messages
