2 minute read

As consumers ourselves, we are well aware of the major shifts in how we have consumed media over the past few years.

From linear TV viewing shifting to VOD and Netflix to audio listening shifting from radio to podcasts and streaming music, we’ve seen over the last decade, these shifts happening slowly, but greatly accelerated during the pandemic. CMOs have to react fast while facing shrinking budgets and yet, higher expectations to deliver measurable results.

In this AMA in the Afternoon session, Gilad de Vries, SVP of Strategy at Outbrain, will offer key insights about the shifts in consumers’ media consumption and the impact on evolving marketing strategies during the pandemic. You’ll hear what these shifts mean for advertisers and why it’s so hard for most advertisers to adapt and succeed in this new world. Additionally, we’ll discuss how branding and performance can actually work together to deliver great return on ad spend (ROAS).

Key Takeaways:

  • Uncover the tipping point. Discover how drastic are the shifts in media consumption and why they’re setting a new norm
  • Learn why these shifts in media consumption shake the very foundation of mass media marketing strategy as we knew it in the last 100 years
  • How can marketers better prepare for the new norm? How can a small change in perspective lead to an overhaul in strategy and execution
