What Is OTT Advertising?

OTT television is more commonly known as streaming television, and it has become increasingly popular in the United States, with more than 78% of consumers using these platforms in 2021. OTT TV includes popular platforms such as YouTube, Netflix, and Roku. 

The advent of ad-free streaming television content has changed how people consume TV, video content, and ad content. OTT advertising is a rapidly growing industry that allows you to tap into this segment of the population and advertise on streaming platforms. Learn more about how this type of advertising works. 

Why Your Business NeedsOTT Advertising

OTT TV is rapidly taking over the market. Currently, streaming services account for about 20% of TV and video consumption, according to the New York Times. That number is projected to grow to 33% by 2021. Due to the popularity of this medium, OTT advertising will play an increasingly more important role in marketing and advertising strategies in the future.  

A Growing Trend:  OTT Advertising Statistics

OTT advertising has grown exponentially over the last few years.

According to Allied Market Research, the international OTT advertising industry is worth $121.61 billion. By 2027, it is projected to reach $1,039.03 billion. With more than 75% of consumers in the United States using streaming services, this represents a massive opportunity for advertisers.

Consumers spent approximately 239 billion hours using streaming services in the fourth quarter of 2020 alone, according to Unscreen. Mobile represents one of the largest growth areas as internet users spend almost 38 hours a month using their mobile devices for screening TV, according to Brid. TV

OTT Advertising Is Trackable

If you have used television ads in the past, you know how challenging it can be to determine who is watching your ads or if anyone is even paying attention. With OTT ads, you can target your advertising to your ideal audience and determine how they interact with your content. 

OTT Advertising Is Affordable

OTT advertising is highly scalable. It also allows you to target your audience with precision and generate an excellent return on investment when combined with the right strategy. This significantly reduces your ad spending, allows smaller businesses to remain competitive, and can boost your bottom line. 

OTT Advertising Allows You to Reach Audiences Who Have Gotten Rid of Cable and Satellite

With more and more people cutting the cord, it can be next to impossible to get your content in front of these consumers. OTT advertising allows you to reach those people and gives you an advantage over competitors that have not made the leap to OTT advertising. 

OTT Advertising Offers a Better Experience for the Consumer

While ads offer consumers valuable information about products, they can be frustrating when they interrupt content. Because of OTT advertising’s targeting capabilities, you can be sure that you are showing consumers products they are interested in.

Additionally, OTT ads are shorter and less intrusive than blocks of TV commercials and allow the consumer to skip them after a few seconds.

Why OTT Advertising Is  Essential for Your Business

If you run a business that relies on advertising to generate new leads, you need to be where your target audience is. As OTT TV grows in popularity, more and more companies will rely on OTT advertising to speak to their target audience.

There is a real opportunity cost to not adding this type of advertising to your overall marketing strategy. However, this type of advertising offers more than just a way to stay ahead of the competition. Here are some great reasons to consider OTT advertising for your business:
