Today In Communications History

On this date in 1952, Jackie Robinson, the legendary Brooklyn Dodger and American icon, was named Director of Communication for NBC. He was the first black executive of a major radio-TV network.

NOTE: We have entered a new era in screen ratings. Nielsen is expanding its sample of TV viewers to include new homes with meters that record the channel being watched — but not the demographics of the people watching. That will be estimated using data modeling and an algorithm Nielsen has developed, and added to the current sample that does include people meters that measure demos. The Panel Expansion (NPX), in which 12,900 households have been added to the national sample, is at the center of this change. The household ratings in these homes are measured by meters on each television in the home, while the demographic ratings in these homes will be assigned by Nielsen using a statistical algorithm. This is the first time since 1987 that homes in the national sample are not equipped with PeopleMeters, which measure both the program viewed and the people watching it.

Television News
‘CBS Morning News’ Only Morning Show To Gain Viewers
The only morning show adding viewers, CBS This Morning, just had its biggest week in 22 years. The longtime No. 3 breakfast show topped the 4 million viewer average, which hasn’t happened since the week of Feb. 28, 1994. With only three hosts and a commitment to hard news rather than fluffy, pop news, ‘CBCMN’ while still in third place has rocketed upward while the other two have continued to loose viewership. The averages for the week of Jan. 25: Total Viewers:
ABC: 5.043 million viewers
NBC: 4.877 million viewers
CBS: 4.018 million viewers.

TV-Viewing Habits Continue To Change. Cord Cutting Up. Digital/Mobile Screen Viewing Up.
More people are opting out of traditional pay-TV services, with 11% of consumers cutting ties within the last year and 21% living without cable, satellite or other pay-TV service for more than a year, per a CTA report. Second-screen behavior is also on the rise, with 88% of millennials reporting they use a second device while they watch TV.

A total of 88% of millennials (ages 18 to 34) engage in second-screen behaviors when watching TV, CTA found. Seventy-one percent engage with social media while watching video content. That’s 40 percentage points higher than adults 35 and older. Also, 70 percent of millennials watch content on another device during TV commercials, a rate that is 32 percentage points higher than adults 35 and older.

All told, half of online Americans use devices such as phones and tablets to augment first-screen content to access information about the content they’re viewing. Forty-eight percent use a second screen to watch content on other devices during commercials, and 43% follow social media discussions either related or unrelated to the programming.
Streamed content: The survey also found that while TVs remains the most-preferred device for viewing most video content, screens on computers, tablets and smartphones are preferred collectively for watching streamed content by 57% of consumers, or 13 percentage points higher than for TVs. For most types of video content, millennials are more likely to watch from non-traditional devices (42%) compared with adults 35 and older (22 percent).

Mobile News
Marketers in Canada Devote More Money to Mobile
Two in five marketers in Canada will increase mobile budget this year. Mobile is the most likely digital channel to see an increase in budget among marketers in Canada, according to research from December 2015. Ad Hoc polled marketing professionals in Canada for AdGear about their marketing allocations for 2016. On average, respondents said they planned to devote 44.8% of their 2016 marketing budget to digital, up from 40.0% in 2015.
About two in five of those respondents said they would be increasing the amount of money they put toward mobile specifically. That was more than said they would increase digital marketing budgets for programmatic or for video and addressable TV. Hardly any respondents planned to decrease spending on any of those channels, though a narrow plurality planned to hold spending on programmatic and video/addressable TV steady for the coming year. Mobile was also expected to enjoy the largest spending increases: Respondents said they would jack up mobile budgets by an average of 31.3% in 2016, compared to a 29.4% average planned increase in programmatic spend and 24.3% for video.

eMarketer estimates that mobile ad spending in Canada will reach C$2.31 billion ($2.09) this year, up 55.0% over 2015. Mobile will represent 48.1% of all digital ad spending this year, and 17.4% of total media ad spending.

Mobile’s Influence On Offline Sales Continues To Grow
In an article in Mobile Commerce Daily by Chantel Tode (020216), more than $1 trillion of total retail sales in 2015 were influenced by mobile phones, with most of this coming from in-store transactions and further growth expected, according to a new report from Forrester Research.

In the latest update to Forrester’s Web-Influence Retail Forecast, the research firm points to several key trends that are laying the groundwork for mobile to play an even bigger role in influencing in-store sales. These trends include bigger phones and third-party services that meet mobile shoppers’ needs. “As phones are getting larger and wireless networks are improving, more web traffic is flowing through mobile networks,” said Sucharita Mulpuru, an analyst at Forrester Research and author of the report. “Shopping is a beneficiary of that trend.”

Web-impacted Sales
While ecommerce sales continue to grow, consumers still complete most of their purchases in stores. Per Forrester, ecommerce sales totaled $334 billion in 2015 while offline sales totaled $2.9 trillion. However, shoppers are increasingly engaging with digital touch points – often their smartphone – to research a purchase. In 2016, Forrester expects Web-influenced sales to total $1.3 trillion and, by 2020, to reach $1.6 trillion. As a result of this growth, Web-impacted retail sales will account for 55 percent of total sales by 2020, up from 49 percent in 2016.

Several factors will support the growth of Web-influenced offline sales. Forrester expects the total number of online buyers and browsers to increase rapidly as smartphone penetration continues to grow. Between 2015 and 20, Forrester expects the online population of shoppers to grow by 26 million. At the same time, the preference for in-store shopping remains strong.

Omnichannel Experiences
Given the growth in mobile and the preference for in-store shopping, retailers are investing in more and better omnichannel experiences. The move toward omnichannel experiences supports retailers’ belief that seamless views of inventory allow shoppers to buy what they want when they want and receive product more quickly and inexpensively than before.

Another factor influencing Web-impacted sales is the fact that smartphones are getting bigger while wireless networks are faster. As consumers get used to being able to use their phones anywhere, shopping is one of the activities they are engaging in more frequently. Additionally, search engines are making it easier for mobile users to quickly access the kind of information these users are typically looking for, from store locations and coupons to comparing prices and looking up product information.

Retailers also continue to invest where it matters most to shoppers, such as improvements in browsing products and placing orders on mobile sites. Speculative investments such as geofencing and beacons are lower on their list. “We expect more than $1 trillion of total retail sales to be influenced by mobile phones in 2015, and the lion’s share of that will be transactions in stores,” Ms. Mulpuru said.

Italian fashion house Valentino and Vogue magazine agree: male model Derek Zoolander is so hot right now.

Who and What Do Consumers Feel Define A Company’s Core Values?
Consumers believe employees have the biggest role in defining a company’s core values, per results from a Havas Worldwide survey of more than 10,000 adults worldwide. Notably, respondents believe that marketing and advertising (31%) has a significant role to play, being about as influential as brand champions (32%) and slightly more so than the CEO (29%).

Social Media
Nearly Two-thirds of Consumers Use Facebook as Social Login
Facebook accounts for 62% of social logins made by consumers to sign into the apps and websites of publishers and brands, Gigya reports. Nearly a quarter of consumers use Google logins, 7% use Twitter details and 4% use Yahoo. Google and Facebook are offered as options almost all of the time, whereas Twitter is only presented as a choice 72% of the time, and Yahoo just 35% of the time.
