DISH Media Sales Puts Volvo Cars Behind the Wheel of First Cross-Platform Addressable Ad Campaign

  • Volvo Cars partners with Mindshare North America to unite DISH and
    Sling TV audiences
  • DISH enables Volvo Cars to target two distinct audiences through a
    single buying process

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DISH
Media Sales
today announced its first cross-platform addressable ad
campaign, which enabled Volvo Cars to target TV viewers across DISH and
Sling TV with a single buy. The milestone campaign, executed through
global media agency Mindshare
NA
, allowed Volvo Cars to reach four segments of luxury car
enthusiasts across both platforms.


Volvo Cars’ nine-week campaign deployed four ad creatives designed to
capture market share within the luxury car category, as well as
influence those looking to upgrade.

“As the definition of TV changes, we’re focused on smarter targeting
that drives Volvo Cars’ message directly to our audience anywhere on any
device,” said Kevin Corcoran, marketing communications manager for Volvo
Cars. “Uniting DISH and Sling TV’s unique audiences allows us to zero in
on our 'in-market' customer regardless of network, device and even
platform.”

Cross-platform campaigns reach DISH and Sling TV viewers in a premium,
brand-safe environment. Using anonymized data, ads are delivered with
pinpoint accuracy across any device while the viewer watches TV. Brands
can track campaign performance across DISH and Sling TV, determining
their return on investment by tying it directly back to aggregated and
anonymized key performance indicators, including sales match.

“We’ve joined two distinct TV footprints and consolidated the buying,
targeting and measurement process for advertisers looking to capture
that premium TV viewer anytime, anywhere,” said Brian Norris, vice
president of DISH Media Sales. “Today, consumers watch live TV wherever
they are, whether it’s from their living room couch or their morning
commute.”

DISH Media Sales and GroupM,
parent company of Mindshare NA, are pioneers in the addressable
advertising space. The two companies continue to push the industry
forward since their groundbreaking partnership that made DISH
the first TV provider to deliver household-addressable ads to a national
footprint
