Harvesting the power from raw TV advertising data exports

Many brands use raw advertising data to perform deep analysis and ultimately help them optimize multi-channel advertising strategies.

Recently we began offering Tatari clients raw data from streaming and linear TV via Amazon S3, a secure cloud file sharing service. Through S3 buckets, clients can automate ingestion into their internal tools or third party software as well as download the CSV files.

Today we offer a few types of data. 

From streaming TV, brands get user-level attribution data—which shows them who took an action on their website or Android or iOS application as a result of seeing a TV ad—and spend and impressions data, which shows them how much the ad cost and how many times it was displayed to viewers. 

From linear TV, brands can get spend and impressions data at the spot (or commercial) level, which shows them how many viewers saw the ad, how much it cost, and how it performed on other networks or across other creatives. They also get the lift associated with all their conversion metrics (visitors, installs, signups, leads, subscriptions, purchases, add to cart, etc.), so they can precisely understand the impact of their TV spend.

There are a few ways you can use raw TV data to optimize advertising strategies.  

1. Multi-channel attribution analysis  

Ingest raw data into your multi-touch attribution software to analyze performance across all digital and offline channels and see the full customer buying journey. 

At Tatari, we completed a deep integration with Rockerbox—a marketing attribution platform—to automatically send website user attribution data from streaming TV so you can see more accurate and higher quality results from TV within their analysis. 

Many clients also send this raw data to other providers, like our partners at AppsFlyer, to conduct similar analyses. 

2. Return on ad spend (ROAS) calculations or lifetime value (LTV) 

Pull data into your internal data analytics tools to perform ROAS and LTV calculations, which helps you estimate the average revenue that a customer will generate throughout their lifespan as a customer. 

3. Tracking spend and impressions over time

Not only can you monitor TV spend and impressions in your Tatari dashboard but with the raw data, you can track this data over time and easily compare it to your other advertising channels. 

Raw data ingestion has been very popular, in fact, almost half of Tatari clients are using S3 buckets today.  Expect much more to come here.

Why Facebook Boycott Dollars Should Head To CTV

As brands reallocate their dollars from Facebook to other channels, they're likely to learn that connected TV (CTV) and over-the-top (OTT) TV has as much, if not more, to offer than Facebook.

Streaming TV Has Dayparts and Rotations, Too

In linear broadcasting, there is a significant difference in response rates at different dayparts. That difference derives from human behavior and states of mind; the on-demand nature of streaming does not erase those habits altogether.

In this article, we put Tatari’s incrementality approach for incrementality in linear TV (dynamic baselining) to the test by comparing it with a pure test-control experiment.
