Marketers Are Failing to Connect TV Ads With Web Homepages

Only 20% of US television advertisers clearly showcase on their websites the products they promote on-air, according to a recent report from wywy.

Some 40% of advertisers in the US do not display the products showcased on-air at all on their desktop-accessible homepages; 15% show the products with compromised visibility; and 25% include the products as part of a rotating slideshow, the analysis found.

Advertisers in the UK and Germany, the other two markets examined in the report, are doing slightly better, with 22% and 25%, respectively, clearly showcasing products online.

Below, additional key findings from the report, which was based on data from 100 advertisers across a wide range of industries in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany that advertised on television in September and October, 2014.

Mobile Homepages

Advertisers are doing an even worse job showcasing their on-air promoted products on their mobile Web homepages:

  • 55% of US marketers do not display products showcased on TV on their mobile homepages at all.
  • Just 17% clearly display the on-air promoted products on their mobile Web homepages.
