Content targeting company Zefr released the results of a study conducted by IPG Mediabrands resource Magna and IPG Media Lab, which looked at whether brands can effectively reach consumers on YouTube without relying on audience data. (Hint: They can.)
The study tested how different targeting methods performed across campaigns from Hulu, Jeep and an undisclosed CPG brand. The targeting included: Content targeting, which is when a video advertisement is aligned with content at the video level; demo targeting, which is when a video advertisement uses demographic signals to reach desired audiences; and channel targeting, which is when a video advertisement is run on popular YouTube channels.
