TV: Where Disruptors Go To Grow Big
In this report, The Market-Changer’s Playbook: Why TV Is Where Disruptors Go To Grow Big, we examine the TV spend of 35 category disruptors – brands like Uber, Airbnb, Dyson, Wayfair and Zillow – in relation to available brand metrics such as website traffic, online interactions and revenue / sales or valuations for private companies to determine what, if any, correlations exist.
Some key findings of the report include:
- The 35 brand disruptors collectively spent over $2.6 billion on TV in 2016, a 23% increase YOY
- The “brand building” disruptors segment saw an 184% YOY increase on total digital actions – including increased search queries, social media actions, and total online views – with an increased investment on TV.
- For “brand expanding” companies, revenues spiked after they launched a TV campaign or sharply increased TV spending. For instance, Dollar Shave Club and Care.com saw over a 100% increase in revenue upon launching a TV campaign or heavying-up on TV, respectively.
- In 2016, the five major “established” digital disruptors (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Google, aka “FAANG”), spent almost $1.4 billion on TV, up from $550 million in 2011.
