Building on a multi-year partnership, Amobee worked with a major CPG brand, their agency, Horizon Media, and IRI to close the gap between TV and digital audiences with Amobee’s TV Amplifier (TVA) solution, which resulted in decreased waste, increased reach, and a greater volume of product moving off shelves.  

The previous year, the CPG brand and Horizon had increased TV ad spend by 38% and reshuffled their network mix to expand across eight new networks. But this resulted in only a 7% increase in GRPs. 

By switching campaign objectives from awareness to ad delivery volume, Horizon, IRI, and Amobee partnered closely on creating a TV-aware digital strategy to identify underexposed or unexposed linear viewers. With insight into the CPG client’s existing TV schedules, Amobee was able to create the optimal TVA reach by layering on additional third-party data to precisely target strategic and demographic audiences.

This resulted in a 65%+ reach unique to digital* across the CPG’s digital investments measured by Nielsen Total Ad Ratings, and Amobee’s custom curated TVA audiences resulted in the highest overall ROI and volume among all the CPG’s digital tactics.
