Fall in ITV Advertising further underlines demise of traditional ad formats

Ad IdentsadvertisingAdvertising FormatsAdvertorialNative AdvertisingOnnline AdsProduct PlacementTV Ads+-

Consumer behaviour has been changing for a while now - most of us contemporary beings watch very little scheduled TV anymore. It’s really only my parents’ generation who watch TV to a schedule; everyone I know in my generation watches catch-up or on-demand - Netflix, Amazon, NowTV etc. My younger nephews and nieces are almost entirely tablet or laptop based now and spend most of their time on Apps or YouTube.

The age of intrusive advertising is being overtaken by smart brand advocacy

The last vestiges of more traditional advertising - pre-roll video ads, native advertising and TV sponsorship idents etc. are all coming under threat of extinction. Anything which is deemed intrusive or interruptive will no longer be tolerated by target audiences.
