Today In Communication History
On this date in 1981, the first episode of ‘The Greatest American Hero’ aired on ABC.
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.
Quote of the Day
‘You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.’
Did You Know?
⦿ 25% of adults in urban areas use Twitter.
⦿ Brands such as Burberry and Louis Vuitton are trying their hand at Snapchat marketing, but basic, tried-and-tested approaches such as YouTube videos can help them make a bigger splash, experts say. “The coolest tool for millennials is YouTube,” says Gregory Pouy, CEO of LaMercatique.
⦿ Over 93% of social content posted by brands last year was one-on-one messaging, Spredfast reports. The data show that marketers should rethink their content focus if they send mostly one-to-many posts and that social teams should have resources to respond to consumer posts.
⦿ 64% of smartphone shoppers would welcome the opportunity to view products using virtual reality technology, according to an eMarketer poll.
⦿ Mobile ad spending is still growing rapidly in Canada, eMarketer estimates, and will account for more than 48% of digital ad spending in the country this year.
⦿ Twitter is expected to post an 8% gain in US users in 2016 and maintain a growth rate greater than that for other social networks through 2018.

Little Screen To Equal Big Screen In Ad Spend Soon
eMarketer forecasts mobile alone will rival TV in ad spend in 2020. While forecasts going out several years can sometimes be revised quite significantly, the projections speaks to the impressive growth of mobile advertising, which in 2014 occupied only an estimated 10.9% share of US media ad spending. That has already more than doubled to an estimated 22.7% share this year, and is now forecast to grow to 32.9% in 2020. The almost one-third of all media ad budgets would equal the 32.9% forecast for TV. (TV advertising is expected to be slightly higher in terms of absolute dollars – the equal percentage share is due to rounding.)
Another way of looking at mobile’s growth: this year mobile’s 22.7% expected share of media ad budgets is greater than print (13.9%) and radio (7.4%) combined. By 2020, mobile is predicted to capture a considerably greater share of US media ad budgets than print, radio, out-of-home and directories, combined.
Last year, meanwhile, mobile captured the majority of digital ad budgets for the first time, per eMarketer’s estimates. By 2020, it is projected to occupy almost three-quarters of digital ad budgets. To paraphrase Marc Andreessen’s popular quip, it looks like mobile is eating the digital ad world. (It’s already there when it comes to Facebook ad spending.)
Here is the above chart again, but this time without breaking out mobile and non-mobile digital media, in order to show digital media’s ascent over TV next year:
It’s worth noting, though, that ad spending might be following consumer media consumption shifts more so than advertising influence. TV ads influence far more consumers to make a purchase than video or display ads, though social media ads (primarily consumed today on mobile devices) are second to TV among Millennials. That’s according to MarketingCharts’ ongoing research into the forms of advertising that US consumers believe most influence their purchases. The results could be a reflection of a greater exposure to TV ads than video ads, rather than a greater degree of efficacy, though, as research presents conflicting views on the relative efficacy of these media.
Returning to the eMarketer forecast, some other points of note include:
▶︎ Magazines overtaking newspapers in ad spending in 2019, primarily on the basis of a slower decline in ad spend;
Spending on non-mobile digital advertising overtaking print in 2019; and
▶︎ Out-of-home’s share of media advertising spending declining at a slower rate than most traditional media (save for TV), as a result of continued volume growth. It’s important to note that while traditional media formats are expected to decline in share of total ad spend, that doesn’t mean that spending dollars will decline. That’s due to continued growth in overall media ad spending, which eMarketer predicts will increase from $192 billion this year to $234.3 billion in 2020. So while TV’s share of total ad spend will decline during that time frame, the amount of dollar spending on TV is expected to grow from $70.6 billion to $77.2 billion.
Finally, despite long-running reports of TV ad budgets moving to digital video, TV ad spending in 2020 will still vastly outweigh digital video ad spending ($77.2 billion and $16.7 billion, respectively), per eMarketer’s forecast. And within digital, the shift to mobile will not be quite as rapid with video, as desktop/laptop video ad spending will still slightly top mobile video ad spending at the end of the forecast period.
Desktops & Laptops Decline To A Minority of Premium Digital Video Ad Views
Desktops and laptops accounted for just 40% share of premium video ad views in Q4 2015, down from 52% a quarter earlier and falling below a majority share for the first time, reports FreeWheel. OTT devices continue to grow quickly, comprising 22% share of all video ad views, overtaking smartphones (19%). Among OTT devices, Apple TV led with 44% share of ad views, followed by Roku (34% share).
In other study results,
▶︎ Authenticated viewing accounted for 65% of long-form and live monetization for programmers (MVPDs) in Q4, up from 56% in the year-earlier period;
▶︎ OTT devices, at 31% share, continue to represent the second-largest share of authenticated ad views, not far behind desktops and laptops (37% share);
▶︎ Overall video views grew by 32% year-over-year and video ad views by 30%, driven by live and long-form viewing (+129%);
The entertainment category (32%) represented the largest share of ad views by content segment, followed by sports (20%) and music (12%);
▶︎ Tablets, desktops/laptops and OTT devices continue to be used primarily for long-form (20+ minutes) and live viewing, with the opposite true for smartphones;
▶︎ The average ad break length was 130 seconds (6.2 ad units) for live viewing in Q4;
▶︎ Ads served during live and long-form video skewed towards 30-second units over 15-second units, while a majority (55%) of ads served during shorter-form content were 15 seconds in length; and
▶︎ The retail vertical comprised the largest share (25%) of ad views by vertical, followed by CPG (18%) and financial services (12%).
About the Data: The dataset used for the FreeWheel reports concern the usage and monetization of professional, rights managed video content, and are comprised of over 160 billion video views in 2015. The report is released quarterly and highlights the changing dynamics of how enterprise-class content owners and distributors are monetizing professional digital video content.
Digital TV viewing is projected to exceed half of the internet-using population this year for the first time, forecasts eMarketer. Some 164.5 million Americans are expected to watch TV shows online via any device at least once a month, representing 50.8% of the population. That figure is forecast to climb to 183.6 million in 2020, or 54.9% of the population.
However, traditional TV still boasts higher numbers, per eMarketer, which notes that 205.7 million adults will watch traditional TV this year as opposed to 129.7 million watching digital TV. That gap will narrow over time as these media audiences move in opposite directions, with 202.1 million adults expected to watch traditional TV by 2018 versus 138.8 million watching streaming TV.
US Paid Search ROI Seen Increasing On Smartphones
Smartphones’ share of US paid search spending rose to 20% in Q4 2015, per Adobe. With an almost 50% year-over-year increase in revenue-per-click in Q4, smartphones also turned in a strong quarter in terms of ROI, with the 31% year-over-year increase in contrast to a relatively flat ROI performance for computers and tablets. Adobe notes that the increase in smartphone transactions led to more competitive bidding from advertisers, with smartphone costs-per-click up 9% year-over-year in Q4. The increase in paid search engagement on smartphones comes at the same time as another report showing that email response rates are also growing on mobile devices.
