CTV Media Buying

A Comprehensive CTV Media Buying Platform

Getting your ads in front of an engaged audience is challenging, especially with traditional ad platforms providing diminishing returns. Enter connected TV (CTV), which combines the precise targeting & performance of mobile and social ads with the advertising impact of the best screen in the house: the television.

The experts at tvScientific have built the first supply path-optimized CTV media buying platform in the industry. We connect performance marketers with cost-effective, high-quality inventory running on television screens in a number of engaging formats.

What is CTV Media Buying?

Traditionally, ad buying has worked one of two ways: direct deals or self-serve. Direct deals have long been used to place ads in legacy formats like newspapers, magazines, and linear television. Social media and mobile marketing brought with them the use of the self-serve platform, which makes advertising easier — but smartphone users are easily distracted and tend to tune out mobile ads.

CTV media buying aims to make placing ads as easy on the television screen as it is on mobile and social. By providing direct access to premium CTV inventory straight from the source, advertisers can use high-quality creative assets that pop on the TV screen — while taking advantage of mobile-like targeting.

How CTV Buying Works

Step 1. Choose Your Platform

Whether you want the freedom to entirely self-manage your campaigns or not, your ideal CTV platform should be intuitive, transparent, and connected to myriad streaming apps to make direct deals simple.

Step 2. Chose Your Format

Your CTV ad partner should have a variety of ad formats available. For example, tvScientific offers video ads available in 6, 10, 15, and 30 second lengths, while providing access to high-def, full-screen visuals.

Step 3. Choose Your Target Audience

Unlike traditional TV commercials, CTV media buying allows you to target specific audiences and personas. tvScientific has a number of targeting options ranging from online & offline behavior to geographical location and even custom segments using first-party and third-party data.

Step 4. Analyze the Results

Your CTV media buying platform should be able to provide all the data you need to analyze the success of any campaign. For example, tvScientific’s platform is built on radical data transparency, with 1:1 ID matching providing accurate, trustworthy results.
