New Wave: The Next Billion Dollar Startup Is In Mobile-Social-Video (Part 3)
This is a follow up to parts 1 and part 2 on the next set of billion dollar startups in the world of mobile social video. Below is another business that will surface/scale significantly over the next few years (5-10 yrs).
Programmatic Television and Cross-Channel Marketing Platforms: The one thing marketers care about more than anything else is to be able to reach a specific set of audiences (target buyer segment and their influencers) to connect with them in a meaningful way across all their media touchpoints: Television, Offline (Newspapers/Magazines), Social, Digital and Mobile.
There's one problem - They can't.
There is no simple way for marketers to reach their audiences across all their media touch-points in a meaningful, measurable way. Sure they do television, social, and mobile advertising, but largely with no sense of whether the same user is reached across media in a meaningful way.
The answer? Programmatic Television and Cross-Channel Marketing.
Or in short, when in doubt - Trust the Robots to get it done.
There's a billion dollar business in building a platform that:
- Links a user across their Television (Smart TVs woohoo), Mobile Device, Browser and Social Accounts
- Creates targetable segments, so a marketer can reach each user across TV, Social, Mobile - based on their broad segment, say, "moms".
- Allows for programmatic buying across all platforms, with a clear measurement on returns from each medium, and switching spends between TV, social and mobile depending on each user's response.
