Gamut Expands Use of iSpot with New Foot-Traffic Attribution Capability

Streaming TV ads offer advertisers an effective, efficient way to reach and convert new customers. However, streaming advertising is still relatively nascent compared to linear, and full of challenges when it comes to measurement and optimization. In fact, a recent Advertiser Perceptions study found that respectively, a lack of standard measurement, audience deduplication and ad frequency capping are the top hurdles advertisers face when expanding from linear TV advertising into streaming. 

These challenges are exacerbated further when it comes to local OTT advertising, since every local campaign is nuanced with many targeting and measurement variables. So how can advertisers get more out of their local OTT ads? In an effort to offer brands better measurement of local OTT campaigns, iSpot and Gamut have now expanded their partnership to include foot-traffic attribution as part of the joint solution powered by iSpot unified cross-platform TV ad measurement.

Read the full press release below, or watch a recent webinar to learn how the two companies are trailblazing a path for the often under-served area of local OTT advertising, which is rife for utilization by a broad spectrum of advertisers. During the presentation, VP of Analytics at Gamut, Traci Will, and SVP of Media Partnerships at iSpot.tv, Stu Schwartzapfel, share how they are measuring OTT campaigns in a cutting-edge way, with compelling stats and research around the efficacy of local OTT in driving foot traffic.


Gamut Expands Use of iSpot to Deliver Next Generation Outcome-Based Measurement with Launch of New Foot-Traffic Measurement Capability

Gamut’s Market-Leading Location Visitation Measurement Sets New Standard for the Local OTT Advertising Industry

Gamut, the Leader in Local OTT, today announced an expansion of its measurement capabilities via a partnership with iSpot, the leading real-time TV ad measurement and attribution company. Gamut, which recently integrated iSpot’s unified, cross-platform measurement featuring location data from PlaceIQ, can now measure the ability of local OTT and linear TV campaigns to drive visits to retail locations. 

The company will now provide its advertisers with the ability to measure the effectiveness of their OTT campaigns at driving business outcomes ranging from digital touchpoints to consumers entering physical retail locations. Delivered in Gamut’s best-in-class, real-time dashboard, Gamut TOTAL CONNECT, advertisers will have the capacity to measure the optimal frequency needed to drive the highest OTT conversion rates and compare them to their linear TV media campaigns.

“Showing advertisers the unique reach and additional exposures we provide, coupled with actual data showing how often these ad exposures resulted in foot traffic, enables our clients to invest confidently in locally targeted OTT,” said Soo Jin Oh, President at Gamut. “We now have the technology to run hyper-local targeting and personalized messaging at massive scale.  This can create a more authentic connection with consumers and a greater likelihood of desired outcomes.”

Using iSpot’s Unified Measurement Platform, Gamut has already provided thousands of customers with the power to measure the true incremental reach of their OTT campaigns, a highly important KPI when determining the media mix of OTT and linear TV. Gamut’s new integration of foot traffic measurement now takes business-outcome measurement one important step further and enables clients to directly connect their local OTT advertising campaigns to sales activities.

“Businesses want the ability to see how many people their ads reach, how often their messages are seen and the net impact that has on their opportunities to speak to customers,” says Stu Schwartzapfel, SVP of Media Partnerships at iSpot. “Gamut is leaning into that ability to give customers what they want, and in doing so is lowering the barriers to entry for local and regional businesses and brands that want to optimize their spend using Gamut’s products.”

Gamut’s attribution offering leverages a massive database of verified TV ad airings provided by iSpot’s real-time catalogue which is correlated with PlaceIQ’s location information generated from millions of opted-in devices and venues throughout the U.S. 

“Today, TV advertisers need the same kind of performance indicators available in other channels, so we’re especially excited to be working with Gamut and iSpot to help them meet the growing needs of their local OTT advertising clients,” said Brian Bradtke, VP of Partner Development at PlaceIQ. “Where and how consumers shop continues to change, making location data and insights a crucial part of any optimized OTT campaign.”

As local OTT media consumption grows rapidly in the U.S., Gamut, with its award-winning local OTT product, Gamut TOTAL®, continues to invest in and build industry-leading product innovations that allow it to meet client needs and win in the marketplace. Through Gamut’s proprietary attribution and measurement tools, advertisers can now achieve a richer understanding of consumers, intelligently target the right audiences, and drive their return on ad spend.
