  • Transparent, measurable audience insights: Understand advertising impact with in-depth insights and measurement that prove success, including foot traffic impact studies.

“This is an exciting opportunity for brands to effectively engage with target audiences, but not all CTV is created equal,” said Jay Webster, executive senior vice president, product & engineering, Valassis. “Valassis is bringing its deep understanding of the consumer to CTV with a new level of transparency that this segment has not yet seen. With Valassis CTV, we are leveling the playing field with traditional TV in terms of measurement and unique insights to inform future campaigns.”

Traditional TV ad spending is declining, and advertisers are vying to capture a shifting population

With 70% of consumers using at least one streaming TV service, advertising on CTV presents a big opportunity for brands. Additionally, recent Valassis research, found that almost half (49%) of consumers perceive ads on streaming TV as more relevant than traditional TV. As time spent with CTV and over-the-top devices rapidly grows, the opportunity for personalized, measurable advertising follows.
