Five things H&M learned from advertising during the SuperBowl

On the second day of the Shop.org annual conference, Steve Lubomski, of H&M, presented two key case studies of their marketing efforts in the first half of 2012. The biggest was, of course, their SuperBowl campaign with David Beckham at the helm.

As half of the SuperBowl audience is women and not a lot of people cater to them, they took a chance with their first SuperBowl ad that lead them to garner almost 2 billion impressions in a month.

Google shutters TV Ads platform but makes inroads against traditional ads

Google may be online advertising's 800 pound gorilla, but using its digital dominance to push into traditional advertising markets has proven to be a real challenge.

In 2006, for instance, Google began trials of a platform designed to help advertisers more efficiently purchase ad inventory in newspapers.

In 2009, the search giant killed the offering. Ditto for a similar platform created to move radio ad inventory.

So perhaps it won't come as a surprise that Google has decided to throw in the towel on Google TV Ads, an extension to AdWords that made it possible for advertisers to "bring digital buying and measurement technologies to traditional TV advertising."

UK TV viewers will watch more than 1trn ads in 2012

Just 6% of UK consumers own a TV with built-in Wi-Fi despite the fact that in the past three years more TVs have been sold in the UK than there are households.

The findings come from a Deloitte survey of 4,000 UK consumers which also found that TV viewers will watch one trillion ads in 2012.

It adds to a growing body of evidence which suggests that connected TV is failing to catch on with consumers.

Up to 70% of homes have at least one way of connecting their TVs to the internet either through an integrated connection or through a games console, yet just 16% of respondents use their TV to watch catch up TV on a regular basis.

Almost half of respondents had never used their TV to watch video-on-demand. Furthermore, just 5% of respondents said they use connected TV apps ‘frequently’.

Although much of the RTB action has been in the display market thus far, the amount of RTB video inventory available is growing too and is expected to account for nearly a quarter (22%) of online video spend in 2013.
