Measuring what matters: Unlocking incrementality for business outcomes
Measurement experts from TikTok, Spotify, Affinity Solutions, and the VAB joined Samba TV on stage for an insightful discussion on how to measure key business outcomes across verticals, including how to drive incremental results. Samba TV VP and Head of Agency and Publisher Solutions Kris Magel shared how Samba TV is collaborating with major players in the ecosystem to provide marketers with more robust measurement solutions for understanding tune-in, reach and frequency, digital conversion, retail visitation, box office, and others.
“We worked with the Samba team to expand the measurement capability to include podcasts… and because our podcast universe is such an incremental reach play, we were able to drive in our latest case study 53% tune-ins across just those podcasts.” - Spotify’s Amy Dalsan
Winning the tune-in game: How to drive viewership and audience retention
Samba TV brought together top entertainment marketers from NBA, Reddit, Meta and Mediahub to share strategies for driving viewership across today’s fragmented platforms. Yasmin Mitchell from the NBA emphasized the importance of understanding your different audience segments - from core fans to casual viewers to curious or light viewers - and tailoring campaigns to reach and engage these groups effectively. The in-depth discussion moderated by Samba TV's Head of Industry Christina Park also delved into the impacts of ad-supported models on viewership and how to engage audiences with more interactive ad experiences like QR codes.
The Future of Measurement Executive Interview with Samba TV
Advertising Week Global President Ruth Mortimer sat down with Samba TV CEO Ashwin Navin to talk about the importance of transparency across the ecosystem and how AI is shaping the next evolution of measurement.
“This is a moment when we shouldnt be comfortable with data that is siloed. We shouldn’t be comfortable with a single dataset from one device or one publisher as a source of truth. It’s time to bring a leveled playing field to understand media holistically. Demand it from every one of your media vendors and make sure you are getting the confidence, clarity and transparency that you deserve.” - Samba TV’s Ashwin Navin
