Clickety boom: why online brands love TV

Watch ‘Clickety boom: why online brands love TV’ on demand

Online is not just a brilliant way to watch TV and a multi-faceted complement to TV, it is also a major investor in TV advertising. Online brands are now the 2nd largest TV advertising category in the UK.

This is love on many levels and not just because TV drives the best response. For brands that have little or no physical presence, the ability to create an emotional connection with consumers at scale is crucial. It’s TV’s ability to build brands, drive sales, grow customer bases, decrease price sensitivity and increase trust which has got the internet so into TV.

This event focussed on the power of TV advertising for this sector and was packed full of inspiration and learnings.
