What is “Cutting the Cord” and Why Should I Switch to Streaming Ads?

Every streaming service has hundreds of thousands of streaming titles, inspiring people to “cut the cord” and switch over their viewing preference to streaming services entirely. This means that if your advertising model is centered around running ads on cable television, your success is going to decline and fast. The general population is no longer interested in having cable in their home, which means the viewership of your ads is plummeting.

If you’re like most businesses, streaming advertising is not even on your radar, but it should be. You need to make the switch now because streaming is only going to become more popular. If you want to remain competitive in any market, streaming ads are essential for every industry.
With running ads on cable networks, you’re limited to targeting those who watch a specific show and reside within a particular zip code. Now, if you watch any TV yourself, you know that a singular audience who watches a show can be wildly different. Streaming services have identified this pitfall and designed a platform that allows you to select more specific targeting like genders, ages, interests, zip codes, travel preferences, and more. Your ad will be shown to a more intentional audience and will be far more successful as a result.

We’re currently seeing a trend in streaming services like Netflix and Hulu producing their own content. This means that streaming audiences are opting to watching shows like Stranger Things and The Handmaid’s Tale instead of watching them on traditional TV. The content that Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Video produces is helping to build niche groups of people. With their advanced targeting software, you’re getting access to a more refined target audience.
Here at The AD Leaf, we have access to unique resources that allow us to show your ad on various platforms outside of the big names like Hulu and Amazon Video. As streaming becomes more popular, we’re seeing increases in other entertainment companies building their own streaming services like Peacock, IMDBtv, Sling, Roku, and more. The demand for streaming is only going to increase, and with that, its audience size.
To stay ahead of the curve, you need to get in on this at the ground level. Chances are your competitors are already looking into it if they haven’t already taken the leap of faith. You don’t want to be playing catch up, do you?

Depending on your business goals, we can work with you to design a high-quality, eye-catching, and effective campaign. Your advertising dollars are essential, and we know you don’t have time to waste money on ineffective marketing. The benefit of working with an agency is that we have a well-versed team and can provide all of these services in-house. Our Creative Media team has produced a multitude of dynamic commercials and videography services that will bring your branding to the next level. We all know it’s tempting to use your neighbor’s brother’s cousin because they promised to give you a great deal, but let’s be honest, you deserve a commercial that represents you and your business in a professional light. We’re here to make your life easier, so we’ll take care of you from start to finish, providing updates and opportunities for feedback along the way so you can be in the know every step of the way.
