COVID-19 is uncharted territory for all of us. Not only are we dealing with it as professionals, but we're also navigating it as parents, partners, caretakers, you name it. This is not a topic to take lightly, but it is the world we live in and we need to work together to guarantee that businesses survive and thrive in this “new normal."

As the global leader in TV attribution, TVSquared has a unique perspective on how the coronavirus is impacting advertising throughout the world. Each day, we are in touch with thousands of agencies, brands, publishers and media owners in 70+ countries to thoroughly understand this impact—and we will be continuously sharing the latest TV ad insights.

While we're learning new information every day, here is what we know now. First, attribution has become more important than ever. During this time of fast-changing viewership trends, every ad dollar must work, so advertisers need attribution (always-on measurement and optimization) to identify evolving response patterns and then capitalize on them to drive business goals.

Second, while some advertisers are considering going dark for the next few months, this is a mistake. Pausing a campaign will damage the brand effect an advertiser has been building. Don’t forget that, in addition to immediate performance, TV is also valuable for longer-term impact.

Third, it's imperative that advertisers stay on top of viewing trends. TV watching is rising significantly, but with so many options across platforms it’s also essential that brands implement test-and-learn strategies in order to keep track of exactly how audiences are watching content, including specific publishers and programs. Advertisers may discover new buy elements that now drive performance in a way that they didn’t just a few weeks ago.

Read TVSquared’s full March 2020 insights, including data on how COVID-19 has impacted ad spend and performance by vertical so far here, and learn more about why you should advertise on TV during this crucial time.
