TV Content Providers
605 works with content providers to understand which target audiences, program attributes, program messages, or creative execution performs best – in order to:
- Find and reach the right viewing audience
- Test which messages resonate with the target audience
- Optimize linear campaigns
- Offer insights and intelligence around best performing creative
- Measure results and apply lessons to achieve maximum efficiencies
605 provides intelligence and insights for content providers seeking improved tune-in to their content and ways to optimize their marketing spend:
- Audience Analytics
- Campaign Planning & Optimization
- Measurement & Attribution
Our data analytics team will also deliver campaign insights and attribution that includes:
- Post campaign measurement, including exposed HHs with conversion data, e.g., viewership data
- Conversion analytics and ROI
- Reporting on efficiencies by network, daypart, or day of week
In order for content providers to maximize results for their tune-in campaign, 605 helps them understand and validate who and where to target their promotional messages. To do so, 605 looks at demographic, psychographic, behavioral attributes, as well as viewership habits to identify the right target audience for your message.
Next, 605 tests the effectiveness of your tune-in campaign. We separate established target audiences into test and control groups. Different audience groups will be exposed to different test messages. After the campaign runs, individuals can be matched back to viewership data to understand how exposure to tested TV spots impacted tune-in, and which creative executions worked best.
605 will create an optimized TV media schedule that includes specific networks, programs, day parts, as well as best day of the week to advertise. We also include detailed media plans to optimize reach, frequency and cost per impressions for target audiences. Because we neither buy or sell media, we serve as an independent, unbiased resource for our clients.
Our knowledge of the MVPD space, combined with our expertise in data analytics allows us to offer unprecedented guidance to content distributors. 605 can partner with MVPDs and other providers to organize and utilize viewership data to support the decision-making process across the corporate, marketing, programming, operations, and local & regional ad sales units within the organization.

605’s Managed Services include:
- Inventory optimization
- Media planning tools and applications for local ad sales planning & reporting
- Audience analytics, campaign optimization and measurement to improve tune-in and drive viewership
A data and analytics company today, 605’s initial expertise grew out of the telecommunications industry. We understand that content distributors have historically relied less on a scientific data and analytic approach to marketing, and instead have focused on a more broad-based approach to promoting core services. For many distributors, the majority of ad budgets are spent on acquisition and upgrade marketing that focuses on competitive offers for its Triple Play, Double Play or singular products. Many also believe that the greatest impact is driven by cross channel TV spots that promote these services.
Only recently have content distributors entered the addressable TV space to test and learn how to stimulate customer behavior and response. 605’s expertise in the efficient measurement of TV advertising on consumer behavior can also help content develop audience intelligence capabilities, campaign optimization initiatives, and comprehensive measurement and attribution insights.
We help content distributors create optimized TV schedules and media recommendations to reach audiences most receptive to messages about their products and offers – and ultimately achieve better response and ROI for the spend. With 605, distributors can:
- Improve and optimize campaign activity
- Understand and reach best audience targets
- Better manage inventory to more effectively promote core services
- Re-allocate excess inventory back to ad sales – to increase revenue
- Better utilize and evaluate long-tail networks through sophisticated targeting and impression-based scheduling
Media Planning Tools for Ad Sales
605 also knows better than any other data company the need that content distributors have for generating ad sales revenue. We understand how they utilize cross-channel inventory to both sell local advertising and maximize viewership and tune-in. We are also acutely aware that quantifying viewership and impressions increases the value of ad inventory which consequently can be sold at a higher rate to drive revenue.
605 has developed a local ad planning tool specifically designed for content distributors’ sales teams. The tool creates audience-based media plans and proposals for clients. Local cable sales representatives can now combine set-top-box viewership data, rate cards, inventory, and demographic attributes at a local ad zone level to create optimized schedules for local ad sales clientele - in seconds. 605’s local ad sales tool includes data that is fully privacy-compliant, then encrypted, processed, stored and updated daily in an effort to provide one of the most comprehensive and sophisticated applications available today.
Audience Analytics, Campaign Optimization & TV Measurement for Content Providers
Historically, content providers may not have had a direct relationship with their viewers because the distributor sits between the programmer and the end user. Although this dynamic has seen some shift with content delivered via connected devices, these companies have traditionally had limited information on the profile of their viewers – or potential viewers – and no optimal way to reach and motivate these audiences with their tune-in or brand messages.
Today we can support these content providers through our tune-in verification efforts. This allows programmers to utilize a test and learn environment to optimize messaging and schedules in an effort to encourage customer response and higher viewership. We can set up a test and control of TV spots, and then validate the desired outcome. This is accomplished by taking a list of households exposed to a given TV spot and then matching it against the household behavior that was promoted via the TV commercial – in a privacy compliant manner.
The tune-in verification process allows programmers to:
- Access 605 expertise to transform raw data for programmers
- Better understand your audience composition for viewers and potential viewers
- Collect insights into creative execution elements that drive viewership and tune-in to shows
- Find, validate, and refine audience targets most receptive to messages about programs, thus achieving better tune-in response and ROI
- Understand which audiences are most responsive to TV advertising
- Eliminate ad spend waste and achieve campaign efficiencies, especially relevant for linear tune-in optimization
- Distinguish between segmentation of avid viewers vs. casual viewers

DRIVE TUNE-IN TO TV
We identified the top lead-in and tune away programming for our client’s network. Then we pinpointed the most desirable audience segments to drive tune-in, and worked with our client to develop specific programming options which attracted more viewers to the show and the network.
MORE REVENUE FOR RETAIL
We identified and targeted the forty million Americans most likely to respond to a national marketing campaign. Then we ran a pilot campaign against our audience that generated significant sales and brand lift. Afterwards, we improved our target universe based on ad responsiveness, then rolled out a national campaign based on custom ratings for those targets.
MAKE HOSPITALITY HAPPY
We found the forty-three million Americans most likely to travel for business and delivered a media plan based on custom TV ratings for our target audience. Our recommendation drove 15% more business travel conversions than the client’s traditional demographic plan.
MEASURE SUCCESS FOR FILM
We conducted message testing for an Academy Award-winning film and helped guide the campaign in advance of its wide theatrical release. The film grossed over $50 million domestically on a production budget of $20 million.
INCREASE EVENT TURNOUT
We used a venue’s historical ticketing data to predict propensity to attend the next season’s events. We employed these propensities to identify the 300K optimal households for direct-mail marketing. The targeted group bought tickets at a significantly higher rate (+63%) than the general audience, and overall ticket sales were 25% higher than the previous year’s.
A KEY TO CAMPAIGNING
We’ve given politicians and advocates a competitive advantage during campaigns by accurately predicting ‘support voters’ and voter turn-out.Our television optimization engine has helped candidates win elections through its unique ability to enhance television media buys.
