New survey suggests that TV Viewers are not skipping Ads.

The idea that technological advances in TV are enabling a wholesale skipping of TV ads is simply not true says a survey conducted by dynamic ad insertion specialist Yospace.

Yospace Consumer Research 29 July 2016
The survey — conducted in conjunction with Censuswide and measuring the appetite and attitudes of over 2,000 consumers towards advertising in the digital world — found that 88% of viewers across the UK do watch the adverts on live TV and just over three-quarters would be more likely to take notice of adverts during live television if they were personally targeted.

Viewers in general showed a keen interest in ads that were relevant to their geographical location, age and interests; a fifth stated that they want adverts that are relevant to where they live and the same percentage indicated that they would be more interested if the ad was relevant to their age group.

Furthermore, 55% of consumers said they would either be likely or very likely to look online for the product if an ad was targeted towards them personally, more than three-quarters (78%) said they would be likely to some degree to look in store for the product, or ask friends (64%) about the product advertised. Moreover, the majority of consumers (62%) said they had already taken follow up action after seeing an advert while watching live TV and more than one third had done so on several occasions

Not surprisingly, those in the 16-24 age range are most likely to take notice of personalised ads, with almost three quarters saying that they were likely, to some degree, to click on an advert they like online.

The research also highlights that viewers have a low patience threshold for poorly operating advertising. For instance, a quarter would consider switching channel if there were technical problems with adverts on live TV and nearly a fifth said they would think less of the broadcaster.

“Opinions were very strong in the survey, particularly among the younger audiences who will have a significant influence on advertising trends in the future,” remarked Yospace’s Tim Sewell. “Live advertising needs to be fast forwarded into the future generation – the interest in watching ads is evident. However, replacement advertisements need to be selected according to the demographic of the viewer, in real-time and delivered seamlessly to make today’s audiences sit up and take notice.”
