Using Customer Feedback To Improve OTT Advertising

In today's Over-the-Top (OTT) media services, advertising strategies are evolving rapidly. With consumers switching from traditional television to OTT platforms, advertisers need to modify their approaches to capture and retain viewer attention. Understanding and implementing customer feedback has never been more crucial in refining OTT advertising methods and ensuring that content resonates with audiences. Here's how to go about it.

Customer Feedback and Better OTT Advertising

Audience Insights

Customer feedback comes in various forms, such as surveys, reviews, and direct customer interactions, offering raw insights into viewer preferences and behaviors. By analyzing this data, advertisers can ascertain which content formats, advertising styles, and messaging strategies are most effective, allowing for the creation of tailored content that speaks directly to the viewers' interests and needs.

Enhanced Targeting

OTT platforms enable the collection of real-time feedback, and this immediate insight into viewer sentiment helps refine targeting strategies. For instance, if feedback indicates a preference for shorter ads, advertisers can create more concise, engaging content to maintain viewer interest. Similarly, understanding viewers' sentiments towards specific product types or genres can influence ad placements, ensuring they align with the content being consumed, thereby reducing ad-skipping behaviors.

Advanced Analytic Tools

Harnessing customer feedback requires more than just collecting data; you need advanced analytics to transform raw data into actionable strategies. Employing AI-driven tools can help you parse through vast amounts of feedback quickly, identifying trends and highlighting areas needing improvement. These tools can evaluate campaign performance indicators in relation to customer feedback, allowing for real-time refinements to ad content, duration, and format.

Precision Advertising

Feedback-driven advertising is not just about enhancing viewer experience: it also leads to optimized revenue streams. By creating advertisements that viewers find engaging and relevant, platforms can reduce ad fatigue, thereby decreasing the likelihood of subscription downgrades to ad-free models. Moreover, precise targeting based on customer feedback maximizes the ROI of ad campaigns, as content is more likely to prompt viewer action, be it through direct purchases, brand interactions, or sustained content consumption.

Respectful Engagement

Engaging with viewers through their feedback demonstrates a brand's commitment to its audience's needs and comfort. This respectful engagement strategy, facilitated by the appropriate use of data, builds brand loyalty. Viewers are more likely to engage with a platform and its advertisements when they feel their voices are heard and reflected in the content presented to them.
