TV has more to offer advertisers than ever before. In a cluttered media world, with new voices clamouring for advertisers’ attention, TV continues to stand out as proven, trusted and – most importantly – pre-eminently effective.
TV shapes popular culture. The investment our broadcasters make in premium quality TV shows catering to every taste – and available on any screen you wish – creates an advertising environment that is second to none.
From ensuring that the facts about TV are known (and myths challenged) to understanding how and why TV advertising works, explaining how TV is changing, showcasing innovative and affordable solutions and constantly providing the rigorous proof of effectiveness that advertisers need, Thinkbox is here to help businesses meet their marketing objectives.
In recent years, Thinkbox has won a number of industry awards for its research and marketing initiatives. Thinkbox was named Media360’s Industry Body of the Decade and its TV advertising, particularly that featuring ‘Harvey’ the dog, has won several awards. Thinkbox’s most recent TV ad – ‘The Broadcast’ – can be seen on screens currently and was awarded at the British Arrows in 2017.
