"We had to maintain a significant TV presence. New news campaigns boost TV ROI– we needed to focus on using TV to tell the big news for launch, not get bogged down in the detail of product offers. An increase in the weight of VOD increases the impact of TV spend – we un-weighted significantly for our launch campaign, and incorporated bespoke executions to optimise view-through rates." (2016 Virgin Media launch)

TV was dedicated 70% share of the budget because mums with young babies consume a much higher proportion of their media within the home, and this medium is still the best channel for building fame and emotion. The biggest increases in share for Ireland corresponds directly with our TV ad being on air" (2016 WaterWipes)

"TV was selected as the lead medium due to its proven efficiency on FMCG return on investment. We extended TV reach, particularly for our younger target, by utilising online video through TV players (RTÉ, 4OD etc.) and YouTube – working our TV assets hard. Our campaign managed to revitalise and reframe this much-loved product but largely invisible brand into a modern Irish brand using largely a single execution which was broadcast on TV and VOD, with very limited price promotion. It clearly demonstrates the power of advertising in building both a brand and sales." (2016 McDonnells Curry Sauce)

"Our client shared an unexpected impact of the campaign with us earlier this year: “We received a super compliment for our “Not just any bank” campaign from a mum of a 7 year old yesterday: “My 7 yr old daughter was doing her homework and had to put “any” into a sentence. She wrote “don’t choose any bank, choose the saving specialists”. I just laughed. She had seen no TV all day. So it’s safe to say how advertising works.” (2016 RaboDirect)
