From connected TV to multi-channel networks, the lines are blurring between traditional television and content delivered online. As the digital video landscape matures, the linear TV platform is evolving in lockstep, adopting new data and targeting vehicles, with addressable television advertising becoming more prevalent, and programmatic TV on the horizon.

Television is still the most powerful and effective form of media and advertising ever created. So, rather than running away from it, how can brands embrace and benefit from the evolution of television? Where should they be investing in video? Stay tuned; and get ready for the golden age of of television, all over again, albeit in the digital age.

The Future of Media: Social, Mobile, & Emerging Platforms

If 2016 was a watershed year for the marketing and media industries, 2017 is where everything has been turned upside down. Digital media and emerging technologies continue to drive every aspect of brand marketing and the marketing funnel in general, yet the tactics and channels that once worked, are losing traction, while emerging media and technologies that were recently untested and gimmicky, are now proven vehicles for reaching consumers in new and exciting ways.

Mobile has become the platform of choice for consuming media and entertainment; brands are publishing more original content than ever; digital video continues to challenge television. But the strategies, digital toolsets, and media, behind these efforts continue to evolve.

Lean in and learn how today’s foremost brand marketers are using new technologies and embracing emerging platforms like Virtual Reality, Snapchat, and Live Video, and Messengers.
