TV advertising delivers transformative effects for smaller advertisers.  It rapidly drives sales, dramatically grows the customer base, increases trust, and creates fame. It turns products and services into brands. But, for first-time TV advertisers looking to accelerate their business growth, it can also be daunting to know how and where to start.

We heard from advertisers and agencies about how they approached their first TV campaigns, and how they secured boardroom backing to step up to TV.

We also showcased new research building on 2018’s award-winning ‘Profit Ability’ report. This new study provides a practical framework for smaller advertisers looking to use TV for the first time, or to extend their use of it. In addition to arming you with the evidence of the powerful business effects TV advertising can drive for smaller businesses, it has been designed to help you find the most effective starting strategy for your brand, and to answer questions around optimal TV implementation and how to measure performance.
