Netflix and PPC
After a disappointing Q2 for one of the biggest streaming platforms, Netflix has reported in July that it was planning on rolling out ad-supported streaming after years of resistance.
The aim of this is to encourage more users onto the platform made possible by the reduced monthly fees which advertising will enable them to do.
Netflix has decided to partner with Microsoft to support these ads.
The reason for this is that Google already has a plethora of subsidies including YouTube which could present a conflict of interest
The benefits? You will therefore be able to benefit from additional ad placements within the biggest streaming platform in the world.
You will also be able to take advantage of the tagretting measures that bing has as standard allowing you to pinpoint your target audience and deliver your ads accordingly.
As well as Netflix “endorsing Microsoft’s approach to privacy, which is built on protecting customers’ information.”
Recently, Disney has also stated that they would be supporting cheaper plans with a new ad-supported service.
It is also important to note that Worldwide, Netflix viewership continues to grow.
This year, they expect there will be 617.4 million Netflix viewers worldwide, making up a whopping 7.9% of the population.
Making this a really exciting opportunity for businesses to have a piece of the new Netflix and Microsoft venture with the projections of even further growth.
