For TV networks, these developments present both opportunities and challenges. Technology provides numerous channels that networks can leverage to expand their viewership, and build stronger bonds with their consumers. But stiff competition for the consumer’s attention has forced the networks to radically change the way they market their programming. Gone are the days when networks could rely on brand marketing techniques for their tune-in campaigns. The fragmented TV market requires direct-response tactics.

Why video streaming needs to stop fighting the last consumer war

Article | May 28, 2021

Video streaming services have achieved mainstream engagement, with binge viewing now eclipsing linear TV viewing as the leading form of TV show consumption. While the digital disruptors may revel in their newfound status as the masters of TV consumption, and the TV and film industry are forced to adapt to this new reality, a subtler shift in mindset needs to occur. Streaming services, led by subscription video on demand (SVOD) hegemon Netflix, still operate in the mindset of having a digital native consumer base. For these streaming incumbents, the success of SVOD still rests upon their ability to appeal to younger consumer bases who have a) grown up in a digital environment, and b) are by definition young and eager for new and constantly evolving consumer experiences. Add to this the post-second world war presumption that popular entertainment should always be youth-centric focused, and streaming is still de-facto a youth-orientated proposition.

Watch out Warzone and Fortnite: Ubisoft is coming after free-to-play

Article | May 17, 2021

Ubisoft announced last week that it is adding specific focus on free-to-play, alongside its AAA catalogue. In doing so, it is following a route that has been very successful for Activision with its Warzone strategy. Free-to-play games which draw audiences via big franchise names and monetise via in-game spending are going to be increasingly common among AAA publishers. The focus on in-game spending and particularly on the cosmetic, rather than the progress-related, parts will be the key revenue component. As games become less finite and more perpetual (consumer goal is less about ‘finishing them’ and more and ‘playing/spending time in them’), the opportunity to monetise needs that stem from this perpetual engagement (e.g. socialising or expression) starts to outweigh the mere monetisation of access to a packaged product. Simultaneously, free-to-play games also act as a powerful marketing driver for AAA releases as they come out, as well as streamability and word of mouth for the franchise.

Why VR and AR Should Be Part of Your Audience Building Campaign

Article | April 6, 2020

Marketing is a high-priority concern for businesses of all shapes, sizes, and varieties. To get noticed, they need to optimize everything from the content they produce to the brand images they present — but they also need to target the right audiences (and know them completely). Because this can’t be achieved immediately, it must be worked on over time. You send out some types of content and see how they perform. How do the recipients react? How much interest do they show?
