Efficiency is paramount in today’s fast-paced world. Those who cannot be both efficient and flexible will rarely build a long-term business. But there is a medium for achieving long-term and short-term goals that exceeds expectations even in terms of efficiency: TV.

TV AS A SALES DRIVER

No other medium delivers ROI in the same proportion and offers such high profits as television. In a analysis of nearly 2,000 campaigns from major brands from 2009 to 2016, Thinkbox’s Profit Ability study found that TV delivers a 71 percent ROI on advertising investment, even though TV ad investment represents only 54 percent of total spend. This study compared TV to radio, print media, outdoor media, online display and online video. Not only that. TV also brings many other undeniable benefits and it is no longer true that TV advertising is outdated, expensive or does not appeal to younger target groups.
