The craziest annual college basketball tournament has commenced! College basketball’s premier tournament is exciting because of its unpredictability; with 68 teams competing in a single-elimination battle for glory, anything can happen. Behind the scenes, everything needs to run like clockwork in order to keep audiences on the edge of their seats – especially when it comes to delivering the ads that keep the action coming.
For advertisers, the unique nature of this annual sports phenomenon represents a huge opportunity to capitalize on a diverse, expansive, and short-term audience. Average game viewership is in the 10+ millions, and the championship typically receives 20+ million viewers, putting ad buys at a premium.
And those ad buys can really pay off: companies who can take advantage of the opportunity see some great results from multi-platform TV advertising campaigns like those delivered during the tourney. A recent report from Accenture shows that multi-platform TV advertising can have a significant halo effect on other components of an integrated campaign such as search, display, and short-form video advertising.
