The outcome&nbsp;has been a steady growth in our circulation. Press In India Report 2016-17 released by&nbsp;Registrar of Newspapers of India (RNI) has maintained Dainik Bhaskar newspaper to be the largest&nbsp;circulated multi-edition daily. Our focus is towards achieving stronger ad sales and with the team\\u2019s&nbsp;unwavering efforts we are confident of reporting stronger performance. Our internal measures adopted to&nbsp;support the editorial and sales team through initiatives like the DB Knowledge App and more impactful&nbsp;leadership-to-unit connect, are strengthening our internal efficiencies, our agility in decision making and&nbsp;quick turnaround. Through several key new leadership responsibilities, we have also ensured that the<br>best talent resources are available for business growth as well as building internal leadership strengths.&nbsp;DBCL\\u2019s mission is also to engender socio-economic change across India. Aligned to this, on the 73rd birth&nbsp;anniversary of our Chairman Late. Shri Ramesh Chandra Agarwal, which we will commemorate as&nbsp;Prerna Diwas, this quarter, we initiated the establishment of the Ramesh &amp; Sharda Agarwal Foundation.&nbsp;This will contribute to some core areas of socio-economic welfare including education of girl child,&nbsp;adoption of old age homes, mentoring talented small scale businesses and building a convention center&nbsp;of international standards in Bhopal. At a broader level, several core efforts have already been&nbsp;implemented by the government and signs of market revival are visible. The optimism demonstrated by&nbsp;the World Bank advising on India\\u2019s ability to achieve higher economic growth of 7.3% in 2018, also&nbsp;signals a stronger year ahead.\\u201d","social_title":"DB Corp Ad Revenues dip at Rs. 426 cr in Q3\'18 as against Rs. 453 cr same period last fiscal","social_image":"","magazine_id":0,"event_id":0,"campaign_id":0,"canonical_options":0,"canonical_url":"","bitly_url":"","video_type":"","news_type":1,"photo_id":70379,"phototitle":"","photopath":"1516279265_6pxSNf_dbbig.jpg","imagefullPath":"","source_url":"","source":"","photo_by":"","article_author_id":62979,"author_id":49,"photo":"","authorname":"exchange4media News Service","name":"Media \\u2013 Print"},{"article_id":88035,"title":"ESPN Announces New Roles for Senior Leaders","summary":"Mike Morrison to serve as VP, ESPN Business Development, Tim Bunnell to add oversight of China and North Asia businesses, Charly Classen adding South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and India to responsibilities\\r\\n","for_homepage":1,"important":0,"publish_date":"2018-01-18","publish_time":"15:09:43","url":"","meta_title":"ESPN Announces New Roles for Senior Leaders","meta_desc":"Mike Morrison to serve as VP, ESPN Business Development, Tim Bunnell to add oversight of China and North Asia businesses, Charly Classen adding South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and India to responsibilities\\r\\n","social_summary":"Mike Morrison to serve as VP, ESPN Business Development, Tim Bunnell to add oversight of China and North Asia businesses, Charly Classen adding South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and India to responsibilities\\r\\n","web_exclusive":0,"author_type":2,"description":"ESPN today announced new roles for its senior leaders as it builds on the expansion and success of its domestic and global business.<br><br>Mike Morrison, whose time with ESPN began with the EMEA business in 2007, has led ESPN\\u2019s businesses in Asia Pacific (APAC) since 2008.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore.

With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach.

The outcome&nbsp;has been a steady growth in our circulation. Press In India Report 2016-17 released by&nbsp;Registrar of Newspapers of India (RNI) has maintained Dainik Bhaskar newspaper to be the largest&nbsp;circulated multi-edition daily. Our focus is towards achieving stronger ad sales and with the team\\u2019s&nbsp;unwavering efforts we are confident of reporting stronger performance. Our internal measures adopted to&nbsp;support the editorial and sales team through initiatives like the DB Knowledge App and more impactful&nbsp;leadership-to-unit connect, are strengthening our internal efficiencies, our agility in decision making and&nbsp;quick turnaround. Through several key new leadership responsibilities, we have also ensured that the<br>best talent resources are available for business growth as well as building internal leadership strengths.&nbsp;DBCL\\u2019s mission is also to engender socio-economic change across India. Aligned to this, on the 73rd birth&nbsp;anniversary of our Chairman Late. Shri Ramesh Chandra Agarwal, which we will commemorate as&nbsp;Prerna Diwas, this quarter, we initiated the establishment of the Ramesh &amp; Sharda Agarwal Foundation.&nbsp;This will contribute to some core areas of socio-economic welfare including education of girl child,&nbsp;adoption of old age homes, mentoring talented small scale businesses and building a convention center&nbsp;of international standards in Bhopal. At a broader level, several core efforts have already been&nbsp;implemented by the government and signs of market revival are visible. The optimism demonstrated by&nbsp;the World Bank advising on India\\u2019s ability to achieve higher economic growth of 7.3% in 2018, also&nbsp;signals a stronger year ahead.\\u201d","social_title":"DB Corp Ad Revenues dip at Rs. 426 cr in Q3\'18 as against Rs. 453 cr same period last fiscal","social_image":"","magazine_id":0,"event_id":0,"campaign_id":0,"canonical_options":0,"canonical_url":"","bitly_url":"","video_type":"","news_type":1,"photo_id":70379,"phototitle":"","photopath":"1516279265_6pxSNf_dbbig.jpg","imagefullPath":"","source_url":"","source":"","photo_by":"","article_author_id":62979,"author_id":49,"photo":"","authorname":"exchange4media News Service","name":"Media \\u2013 Print"},{"article_id":88035,"title":"ESPN Announces New Roles for Senior Leaders","summary":"Mike Morrison to serve as VP, ESPN Business Development, Tim Bunnell to add oversight of China and North Asia businesses, Charly Classen adding South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and India to responsibilities\\r\\n","for_homepage":1,"important":0,"publish_date":"2018-01-18","publish_time":"15:09:43","url":"","meta_title":"ESPN Announces New Roles for Senior Leaders","meta_desc":"Mike Morrison to serve as VP, ESPN Business Development, Tim Bunnell to add oversight of China and North Asia businesses, Charly Classen adding South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and India to responsibilities\\r\\n","social_summary":"Mike Morrison to serve as VP, ESPN Business Development, Tim Bunnell to add oversight of China and North Asia businesses, Charly Classen adding South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and India to responsibilities\\r\\n","web_exclusive":0,"author_type":2,"description":"ESPN today announced new roles for its senior leaders as it builds on the expansion and success of its domestic and global business.<br><br>Mike Morrison, whose time with ESPN began with the EMEA business in 2007, has led ESPN\\u2019s businesses in Asia Pacific (APAC) since 2008.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore.

The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach.

The outcome&nbsp;has been a steady growth in our circulation. Press In India Report 2016-17 released by&nbsp;Registrar of Newspapers of India (RNI) has maintained Dainik Bhaskar newspaper to be the largest&nbsp;circulated multi-edition daily. Our focus is towards achieving stronger ad sales and with the team\\u2019s&nbsp;unwavering efforts we are confident of reporting stronger performance. Our internal measures adopted to&nbsp;support the editorial and sales team through initiatives like the DB Knowledge App and more impactful&nbsp;leadership-to-unit connect, are strengthening our internal efficiencies, our agility in decision making and&nbsp;quick turnaround. Through several key new leadership responsibilities, we have also ensured that the<br>best talent resources are available for business growth as well as building internal leadership strengths.&nbsp;DBCL\\u2019s mission is also to engender socio-economic change across India. Aligned to this, on the 73rd birth&nbsp;anniversary of our Chairman Late. Shri Ramesh Chandra Agarwal, which we will commemorate as&nbsp;Prerna Diwas, this quarter, we initiated the establishment of the Ramesh &amp; Sharda Agarwal Foundation.&nbsp;This will contribute to some core areas of socio-economic welfare including education of girl child,&nbsp;adoption of old age homes, mentoring talented small scale businesses and building a convention center&nbsp;of international standards in Bhopal. At a broader level, several core efforts have already been&nbsp;implemented by the government and signs of market revival are visible. The optimism demonstrated by&nbsp;the World Bank advising on India\\u2019s ability to achieve higher economic growth of 7.3% in 2018, also&nbsp;signals a stronger year ahead.\\u201d","social_title":"DB Corp Ad Revenues dip at Rs. 426 cr in Q3\'18 as against Rs. 453 cr same period last fiscal","social_image":"","magazine_id":0,"event_id":0,"campaign_id":0,"canonical_options":0,"canonical_url":"","bitly_url":"","video_type":"","news_type":1,"photo_id":70379,"phototitle":"","photopath":"1516279265_6pxSNf_dbbig.jpg","imagefullPath":"","source_url":"","source":"","photo_by":"","article_author_id":62979,"author_id":49,"photo":"","authorname":"exchange4media News Service","name":"Media \\u2013 Print"},{"article_id":88035,"title":"ESPN Announces New Roles for Senior Leaders","summary":"Mike Morrison to serve as VP, ESPN Business Development, Tim Bunnell to add oversight of China and North Asia businesses, Charly Classen adding South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and India to responsibilities\\r\\n","for_homepage":1,"important":0,"publish_date":"2018-01-18","publish_time":"15:09:43","url":"","meta_title":"ESPN Announces New Roles for Senior Leaders","meta_desc":"Mike Morrison to serve as VP, ESPN Business Development, Tim Bunnell to add oversight of China and North Asia businesses, Charly Classen adding South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and India to responsibilities\\r\\n","social_summary":"Mike Morrison to serve as VP, ESPN Business Development, Tim Bunnell to add oversight of China and North Asia businesses, Charly Classen adding South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and India to responsibilities\\r\\n","web_exclusive":0,"author_type":2,"description":"ESPN today announced new roles for its senior leaders as it builds on the expansion and success of its domestic and global business.<br><br>Mike Morrison, whose time with ESPN began with the EMEA business in 2007, has led ESPN\\u2019s businesses in Asia Pacific (APAC) since 2008.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation.

With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach. With the launch of our new digital campaign, we aim to market Vivo V7 in a non-intrusive way to our consumers.\\u201d<div><br>Speaking on the campaign, Rajiv Dingra, founder and CEO, WATConsult, said, \\u201cThe digital marketing world is evolving with newer advertising concepts being introduced every day.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase.

The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter.

With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach. With the launch of our new digital campaign, we aim to market Vivo V7 in a non-intrusive way to our consumers.\\u201d<div><br>Speaking on the campaign, Rajiv Dingra, founder and CEO, WATConsult, said, \\u201cThe digital marketing world is evolving with newer advertising concepts being introduced every day. Today, consumers prefer relevant content which delivers the intended message quickly and with some quirk. The ViewTube campaign has rightfully delivered on the requirement of Vivo\\u2019s new age consumers.\\u201d&nbsp;<\\/div><div><br><\\/div><div><img src=\\"http:\\/\\/e4mcms.exchange4media.com\\/files\\/1516190845_Au9sr8_vivo1.jpeg\\"><br><\\/div><div><br><\\/div><div><img src=\\"http:\\/\\/e4mcms.exchange4media.com\\/files\\/1516190848_N04qVU_vivo2.jpeg\\"><br><\\/div><div><br><\\/div><div><img src=\\"http:\\/\\/e4mcms.exchange4media.com\\/files\\/1516190852_9uxhWL_vivo3.jpeg\\"><br><\\/div><div><br><\\/div><div><img src=\\"http:\\/\\/e4mcms.exchange4media.com\\/files\\/1516190856_CZelzD_vivo4.jpeg\\"><br><\\/div><div><br>*Vogon is a tool to create dynamic videos that allow brands to dynamically embed text, audio or images within their videos to generate unlimited video variations \\u2013 cutting down on efforts, costs, time, and planning.

Our internal measures adopted to&nbsp;support the editorial and sales team through initiatives like the DB Knowledge App and more impactful&nbsp;leadership-to-unit connect, are strengthening our internal efficiencies, our agility in decision making and&nbsp;quick turnaround. Through several key new leadership responsibilities, we have also ensured that the<br>best talent resources are available for business growth as well as building internal leadership strengths.&nbsp;DBCL\\u2019s mission is also to engender socio-economic change across India. Aligned to this, on the 73rd birth&nbsp;anniversary of our Chairman Late. Shri Ramesh Chandra Agarwal, which we will commemorate as&nbsp;Prerna Diwas, this quarter, we initiated the establishment of the Ramesh &amp; Sharda Agarwal Foundation.&nbsp;This will contribute to some core areas of socio-economic welfare including education of girl child,&nbsp;adoption of old age homes, mentoring talented small scale businesses and building a convention center&nbsp;of international standards in Bhopal. At a broader level, several core efforts have already been&nbsp;implemented by the government and signs of market revival are visible.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation.

The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase.

The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore.

The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach. With the launch of our new digital campaign, we aim to market Vivo V7 in a non-intrusive way to our consumers.\\u201d<div><br>Speaking on the campaign, Rajiv Dingra, founder and CEO, WATConsult, said, \\u201cThe digital marketing world is evolving with newer advertising concepts being introduced every day. Today, consumers prefer relevant content which delivers the intended message quickly and with some quirk.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore. On a comparable basis, the advertising and subscription revenues were lower by 0.8 per cent and 3.4 per cent, respectively.<br><br>During the quarter, two HD channels, Zee Telugu HD and Zee Cinemalu HD, were launched taking the count of HD channels to 13.","social_title":"ZEEL Q3\\u2019s advertising revenue jumps 25.7 per cent to Rs 1137.3 crore ","social_image":"","magazine_id":0,"event_id":0,"campaign_id":0,"canonical_options":0,"canonical_url":"","bitly_url":"","video_type":"","news_type":1,"photo_id":70361,"phototitle":"","photopath":"1516191181_Vw7dya_big.jpg","imagefullPath":"","source_url":"","source":"","photo_by":"","article_author_id":62965,"author_id":49,"photo":"","authorname":"exchange4media News Service","name":"Media - TV"},{"article_id":88020,"title":"Vivo Launched ViewTube Campaign- A New Wave for YouTube\'s Pre Roll ads","summary":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","for_homepage":1,"important":0,"publish_date":"2018-01-17","publish_time":"13:42:25","url":"","meta_title":"Vivo Launched ViewTube Campaign- A New Wave for YouTube\'s Pre Roll ads","meta_desc":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","social_summary":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","web_exclusive":0,"author_type":2,"description":"Vivo, the global premium smartphone brand, has rolled out a digital campaign ViewTube giving a new wave to YouTube\\u2019s ongoing TrueView Ads. With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach. With the launch of our new digital campaign, we aim to market Vivo V7 in a non-intrusive way to our consumers.\\u201d<div><br>Speaking on the campaign, Rajiv Dingra, founder and CEO, WATConsult, said, \\u201cThe digital marketing world is evolving with newer advertising concepts being introduced every day.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore. On a comparable basis, the advertising and subscription revenues were lower by 0.8 per cent and 3.4 per cent, respectively.<br><br>During the quarter, two HD channels, Zee Telugu HD and Zee Cinemalu HD, were launched taking the count of HD channels to 13.","social_title":"ZEEL Q3\\u2019s advertising revenue jumps 25.7 per cent to Rs 1137.3 crore ","social_image":"","magazine_id":0,"event_id":0,"campaign_id":0,"canonical_options":0,"canonical_url":"","bitly_url":"","video_type":"","news_type":1,"photo_id":70361,"phototitle":"","photopath":"1516191181_Vw7dya_big.jpg","imagefullPath":"","source_url":"","source":"","photo_by":"","article_author_id":62965,"author_id":49,"photo":"","authorname":"exchange4media News Service","name":"Media - TV"},{"article_id":88020,"title":"Vivo Launched ViewTube Campaign- A New Wave for YouTube\'s Pre Roll ads","summary":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","for_homepage":1,"important":0,"publish_date":"2018-01-17","publish_time":"13:42:25","url":"","meta_title":"Vivo Launched ViewTube Campaign- A New Wave for YouTube\'s Pre Roll ads","meta_desc":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","social_summary":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","web_exclusive":0,"author_type":2,"description":"Vivo, the global premium smartphone brand, has rolled out a digital campaign ViewTube giving a new wave to YouTube\\u2019s ongoing TrueView Ads. With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach. With the launch of our new digital campaign, we aim to market Vivo V7 in a non-intrusive way to our consumers.\\u201d<div><br>Speaking on the campaign, Rajiv Dingra, founder and CEO, WATConsult, said, \\u201cThe digital marketing world is evolving with newer advertising concepts being introduced every day. Today, consumers prefer relevant content which delivers the intended message quickly and with some quirk.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore. On a comparable basis, the advertising and subscription revenues were lower by 0.8 per cent and 3.4 per cent, respectively.<br><br>During the quarter, two HD channels, Zee Telugu HD and Zee Cinemalu HD, were launched taking the count of HD channels to 13.","social_title":"ZEEL Q3\\u2019s advertising revenue jumps 25.7 per cent to Rs 1137.3 crore ","social_image":"","magazine_id":0,"event_id":0,"campaign_id":0,"canonical_options":0,"canonical_url":"","bitly_url":"","video_type":"","news_type":1,"photo_id":70361,"phototitle":"","photopath":"1516191181_Vw7dya_big.jpg","imagefullPath":"","source_url":"","source":"","photo_by":"","article_author_id":62965,"author_id":49,"photo":"","authorname":"exchange4media News Service","name":"Media - TV"},{"article_id":88020,"title":"Vivo Launched ViewTube Campaign- A New Wave for YouTube\'s Pre Roll ads","summary":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","for_homepage":1,"important":0,"publish_date":"2018-01-17","publish_time":"13:42:25","url":"","meta_title":"Vivo Launched ViewTube Campaign- A New Wave for YouTube\'s Pre Roll ads","meta_desc":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","social_summary":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","web_exclusive":0,"author_type":2,"description":"Vivo, the global premium smartphone brand, has rolled out a digital campaign ViewTube giving a new wave to YouTube\\u2019s ongoing TrueView Ads. With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach. With the launch of our new digital campaign, we aim to market Vivo V7 in a non-intrusive way to our consumers.\\u201d<div><br>Speaking on the campaign, Rajiv Dingra, founder and CEO, WATConsult, said, \\u201cThe digital marketing world is evolving with newer advertising concepts being introduced every day.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore. On a comparable basis, the advertising and subscription revenues were lower by 0.8 per cent and 3.4 per cent, respectively.<br><br>During the quarter, two HD channels, Zee Telugu HD and Zee Cinemalu HD, were launched taking the count of HD channels to 13.","social_title":"ZEEL Q3\\u2019s advertising revenue jumps 25.7 per cent to Rs 1137.3 crore ","social_image":"","magazine_id":0,"event_id":0,"campaign_id":0,"canonical_options":0,"canonical_url":"","bitly_url":"","video_type":"","news_type":1,"photo_id":70361,"phototitle":"","photopath":"1516191181_Vw7dya_big.jpg","imagefullPath":"","source_url":"","source":"","photo_by":"","article_author_id":62965,"author_id":49,"photo":"","authorname":"exchange4media News Service","name":"Media - TV"},{"article_id":88020,"title":"Vivo Launched ViewTube Campaign- A New Wave for YouTube\'s Pre Roll ads","summary":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","for_homepage":1,"important":0,"publish_date":"2018-01-17","publish_time":"13:42:25","url":"","meta_title":"Vivo Launched ViewTube Campaign- A New Wave for YouTube\'s Pre Roll ads","meta_desc":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","social_summary":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","web_exclusive":0,"author_type":2,"description":"Vivo, the global premium smartphone brand, has rolled out a digital campaign ViewTube giving a new wave to YouTube\\u2019s ongoing TrueView Ads. With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach. With the launch of our new digital campaign, we aim to market Vivo V7 in a non-intrusive way to our consumers.\\u201d<div><br>Speaking on the campaign, Rajiv Dingra, founder and CEO, WATConsult, said, \\u201cThe digital marketing world is evolving with newer advertising concepts being introduced every day. Today, consumers prefer relevant content which delivers the intended message quickly and with some quirk.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore. On a comparable basis, the advertising and subscription revenues were lower by 0.8 per cent and 3.4 per cent, respectively.<br><br>During the quarter, two HD channels, Zee Telugu HD and Zee Cinemalu HD, were launched taking the count of HD channels to 13.","social_title":"ZEEL Q3\\u2019s advertising revenue jumps 25.7 per cent to Rs 1137.3 crore ","social_image":"","magazine_id":0,"event_id":0,"campaign_id":0,"canonical_options":0,"canonical_url":"","bitly_url":"","video_type":"","news_type":1,"photo_id":70361,"phototitle":"","photopath":"1516191181_Vw7dya_big.jpg","imagefullPath":"","source_url":"","source":"","photo_by":"","article_author_id":62965,"author_id":49,"photo":"","authorname":"exchange4media News Service","name":"Media - TV"},{"article_id":88020,"title":"Vivo Launched ViewTube Campaign- A New Wave for YouTube\'s Pre Roll ads","summary":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","for_homepage":1,"important":0,"publish_date":"2018-01-17","publish_time":"13:42:25","url":"","meta_title":"Vivo Launched ViewTube Campaign- A New Wave for YouTube\'s Pre Roll ads","meta_desc":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","social_summary":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","web_exclusive":0,"author_type":2,"description":"Vivo, the global premium smartphone brand, has rolled out a digital campaign ViewTube giving a new wave to YouTube\\u2019s ongoing TrueView Ads. With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach. With the launch of our new digital campaign, we aim to market Vivo V7 in a non-intrusive way to our consumers.\\u201d<div><br>Speaking on the campaign, Rajiv Dingra, founder and CEO, WATConsult, said, \\u201cThe digital marketing world is evolving with newer advertising concepts being introduced every day.

PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore. On a comparable basis, the advertising and subscription revenues were lower by 0.8 per cent and 3.4 per cent, respectively.<br><br>During the quarter, two HD channels, Zee Telugu HD and Zee Cinemalu HD, were launched taking the count of HD channels to 13.","social_title":"ZEEL Q3\\u2019s advertising revenue jumps 25.7 per cent to Rs 1137.3 crore ","social_image":"","magazine_id":0,"event_id":0,"campaign_id":0,"canonical_options":0,"canonical_url":"","bitly_url":"","video_type":"","news_type":1,"photo_id":70361,"phototitle":"","photopath":"1516191181_Vw7dya_big.jpg","imagefullPath":"","source_url":"","source":"","photo_by":"","article_author_id":62965,"author_id":49,"photo":"","authorname":"exchange4media News Service","name":"Media - TV"},{"article_id":88020,"title":"Vivo Launched ViewTube Campaign- A New Wave for YouTube\'s Pre Roll ads","summary":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","for_homepage":1,"important":0,"publish_date":"2018-01-17","publish_time":"13:42:25","url":"","meta_title":"Vivo Launched ViewTube Campaign- A New Wave for YouTube\'s Pre Roll ads","meta_desc":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","social_summary":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","web_exclusive":0,"author_type":2,"description":"Vivo, the global premium smartphone brand, has rolled out a digital campaign ViewTube giving a new wave to YouTube\\u2019s ongoing TrueView Ads. With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach. With the launch of our new digital campaign, we aim to market Vivo V7 in a non-intrusive way to our consumers.\\u201d<div><br>Speaking on the campaign, Rajiv Dingra, founder and CEO, WATConsult, said, \\u201cThe digital marketing world is evolving with newer advertising concepts being introduced every day.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore.

With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore.

With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach. With the launch of our new digital campaign, we aim to market Vivo V7 in a non-intrusive way to our consumers.\\u201d<div><br>Speaking on the campaign, Rajiv Dingra, founder and CEO, WATConsult, said, \\u201cThe digital marketing world is evolving with newer advertising concepts being introduced every day.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore.

With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore.

With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach. With the launch of our new digital campaign, we aim to market Vivo V7 in a non-intrusive way to our consumers.\\u201d<div><br>Speaking on the campaign, Rajiv Dingra, founder and CEO, WATConsult, said, \\u201cThe digital marketing world is evolving with newer advertising concepts being introduced every day.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore.

With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore.

With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach. With the launch of our new digital campaign, we aim to market Vivo V7 in a non-intrusive way to our consumers.\\u201d<div><br>Speaking on the campaign, Rajiv Dingra, founder and CEO, WATConsult, said, \\u201cThe digital marketing world is evolving with newer advertising concepts being introduced every day.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore.

With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach.

The company registered consolidated revenue of Rs. 1838.1 crore. Earnings Before Interest, Tax, Depreciation and Amortization (EBITDA) was Rs. 594.4 crore. PAT for the quarter was Rs 322.2 crore, a 28.5 per cent YOY increase. EBITDA margin for the quarter was at 32.3 per cent. <br>Advertising revenue for the quarter was Rs. 1202 crore recording a growth of 25.8 per cent.&nbsp;<br>Dr. Subhash Chandra, Chairman, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cIt is very heartening to see the rebound in the economy after four quarters. The initiatives taken by the government had some short-term impact on the growth but these measures will strengthen the economy in the long run. Indian M&amp;E sector will be a beneficiary of this growth story as people spend more time and money on consuming entertainment content. ZEEL, with its strong portfolio of entertainment offerings, is well positioned to capitalize on this opportunity.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>Punit Goenka, Managing Director &amp; Chief Executive Officer, ZEEL, commented, \\u201cWe are delighted to deliver a strong operating performance during the quarter. The slower growth in the last four quarters was due to specific events which required advertisers to recalibrate spends. As the impact of these factors is now behind us, ad spends have bounced back strongly and the outlook remains encouraging. The recent cut in GST rates across a wide category of products should aid the growth.\\u201d&nbsp;<br>He added, \\u201cOur domestic ad revenue growth of 26 per cent is a testimony to the fact that television continues to remain the most effective medium for brand building. With a dominant time share along with an increasing reach, television will remain an important medium for advertisers in the foreseeable future. On top of this, digital platforms are driving incremental video consumption which represents another growth opportunity for content monetization. Our new digital platform, Zee5, scheduled to be launched in February, will enable us to capture this growth.\\u201d<br>Subscription revenue for the quarter was Rs. 501.7 crore. Adjusted for the sale of sports business, domestic subscription revenue grew by 7.5 per cent to Rs. 403.6 crore. International subscription revenue stood at Rs 98.1 crore.<br>Goenka pointed out that the domestic subscription growth rate has been lower than last year. He explained, \\u201cThe growth so far has been lower than what we had last year as the content deals with our distribution partners are taking slightly longer to conclude due to litigations regarding the TRAI tariff regulation. Last year we had closed majority of these deals in the second and third quarter. However, this does not have any significant impact on our full year outlook for subscription growth.\\u201d<br>During the quarter, ZEEL\\u2019s International business revenue was Rs. 187.8 crore. On a comparable basis, the advertising and subscription revenues were lower by 0.8 per cent and 3.4 per cent, respectively.<br><br>During the quarter, two HD channels, Zee Telugu HD and Zee Cinemalu HD, were launched taking the count of HD channels to 13.","social_title":"ZEEL Q3\\u2019s advertising revenue jumps 25.7 per cent to Rs 1137.3 crore ","social_image":"","magazine_id":0,"event_id":0,"campaign_id":0,"canonical_options":0,"canonical_url":"","bitly_url":"","video_type":"","news_type":1,"photo_id":70361,"phototitle":"","photopath":"1516191181_Vw7dya_big.jpg","imagefullPath":"","source_url":"","source":"","photo_by":"","article_author_id":62965,"author_id":49,"photo":"","authorname":"exchange4media News Service","name":"Media - TV"},{"article_id":88020,"title":"Vivo Launched ViewTube Campaign- A New Wave for YouTube\'s Pre Roll ads","summary":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","for_homepage":1,"important":0,"publish_date":"2018-01-17","publish_time":"13:42:25","url":"","meta_title":"Vivo Launched ViewTube Campaign- A New Wave for YouTube\'s Pre Roll ads","meta_desc":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","social_summary":"With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh","web_exclusive":0,"author_type":2,"description":"Vivo, the global premium smartphone brand, has rolled out a digital campaign ViewTube giving a new wave to YouTube\\u2019s ongoing TrueView Ads. With the launch of their V7 model, Vivo leveraged Google\\u2019s Director Mix tool to launch a campaign that offers a unique creative solution to gauge higher viewer attention on YouTube. <br><br>With Vogon* - the latest innovation on YouTube, Vivo overcame the challenge of playing relevant ads to viewers based on their content preference and history. The campaign was successfully amplified between December 23-31, and garnered more than 60 million views, 80% completion rate, 7.2% lift in Consideration, 8.5% lift in Purchase Intent, 11.6% lift in Brand Interest and 24.1% lift in Product Interest. <br><br>Vivo executed this campaign by monitoring trends and the most popular categories and channels on YouTube for over 30 days. With Google\\u2019s new Director Mix Tool, Vivo created over 550 individual ads featuring Ranveer Singh. These ads were dynamically curated based on identified keywords. For instance, a user searching for any movie trailer was served an ad showing Ranveer Singh in a casual atmosphere with a tub of popcorn in hand, talking about how the trailer needs to be watched on a V7 Full View Display. If a user searched for a song, they were served with an ad that suggested that the song was best heard on V7 Hi-Fi music. This contextual streaming of ads brought in high amount of relevance that ensured viewers did not skip these ads \\u2013 giving relevant visibility to Vivo Movies Speaking on the campaign, Kenny Zeng, CMO, Vivo India, said, \\u201cVivo has always strived for innovation in all its aspects \\u2013 right from products to our marketing approach.
