Mediacorp Enables Advertisers
to Optimise Budget Spends
Mediacorp, Singapore's media company with a range of media platforms, has introduced a new way
of optimising video buys based on blended cost-per-viewer (CPV) across screens...

T

he blended CPV model provides optimal
reach at the most cost-effective rate
across Mediacorp's TV channels and overthe-top platform, Toggle. The solution was
developed in close partnership with Mindshare
and Unilever.
With audiences consuming more content
across multiple screens, advertisers often
struggle to achieve efficient buys across
screens due to different measurement
methodologies across digital and TV.
Mediacorp has taken a huge step towards
unifying linear and non-linear media buying by
leveraging its wealth of media data points.
By owning all free-to-air TV channels and
video-on-demand platform, Toggle, media
budgets can be better deployed across video
screens with the goal of improving reach
at a better CPV. Campaign results using the
blended CPV model have therefore exceeded

expectations with key clients,
notably Unilever's first campaign
in the FMCG sector.
Melissa Tang, Managing Director
of Mindshare Singapore, says:
"Consumers are multi-screening,
so the industry needs to adapt its
approach to TV and digital video
planning. Mindshare is delighted
to be the first to collaborate
with Mediacorp in developing
a new model that is reflective
of how people in Singapore are
experiencing media today."
Jennifer Chase, Vice President, Digital
Sales of Mediacorp, says: "The key benefit of
blended CPV is that we can offer advertisers
a screen-agnostic media buying solution that
will reach audiences in a premium long-form
environment regardless of the device they

partners in improving the
efficiency and effectiveness
in reaching more consumers.
While TV remains a credible
source of advertising, we
need to adapt our multi-video
solution to meet the changing
consumer
habits.
With
Singapore being a multi-screen
market, we believe multi-video
solution will help us in creating
a meaningful relationship with
Mediacorp's over-the-top platform, Toggle our consumers."
