VIZIO Case Study: Driving Incremental Reach With CTV Ads

Automaker Sees ROAS of $31+ Through Precision Outreach

Advertisers hoping to reach as many potential customers as possible in the age of connected TV have to take a multi-format approach to both identifying audiences and delivering their message to them.

While many viewers still watch linear TV, an increasing number of them have turned to streaming, while others take a hybrid approach and use both. Targeting ads to these disparate audiences requires precision targeting not only by format, but also by intent. That can be a challenge, but highly rewarding when done right.

VIZIO recently conducted a case study examining how an automotive brand accomplished exactly that. Using Inscape Automatic Content Recognition (ACR) data, the company was able to identify distinct audiences across different TV formats and deliver ads individually to CTV audiences.

What’s more, the carmaker was able to specifically reach audiences most likely to be considering a new car purchase, further refining the outreach. According to our data, VIZIO viewers are 31% more likely to be classified as an “auto-intender” than the average U.S. household.

Over a three-month period, the company ran seven campaigns, promoting six different models, each with a different audience demo that needed to be reached. As a result, over 2,600 car sales were attributed to the campaign, with an average Return On Ad Spend of $31.91.

The case study demonstrate how advertisers can conduct niche campaigns at scale to drive impactful incremental reach using CTV-specific campaigns.
