Before beginning their relationship with Basis in June 2022, the international award-winning Nue Vodka brand owned and distilled by Southwest Spirits was positioning itself to become one of the most well-known vodka brands in the Dallas Fort Worth area. After establishing themselves as a premium, yet affordable vodka in DFW, this client's subsequent goal was to gain market share in the vodka category in markets where there was a greater need for brand awareness.

Basis’ Managed Services team first conducted thorough market and consumer research to validate assumptions about spirits sales, consumption frequency among U.S. adults, and ad spend patterns among alcohol brands. Basis then provided Nue Vodka with an awareness strategy designed to help the brand reach its growth goals and paired it with an analysis comparing its sales in different markets. Ultimately, Basis’ digital media execution correlated with 27% higher average daily sales. In response to the positive business results, the vodka brand doubled its ad spend.

In a new study we commissioned, we asked Forrester Consulting to independently quantify the Total Economic Impact (TEI) of in-housing with Basis to help enterprises decide if our technology is right for them.

Based on customer interviews, independent analyses, and financial modeling, Forrester estimates that a composite company using Basis could generate benefits that amount to a net present value of $5.4 million USD over 3 years, representing an estimated 48% ROI. The study is packed with insights on the value that enterprises are realizing with Basis. These benefits include:

One Digital Marketing Director in the Electronics field had this to say to Forrester about Basis:

“Our total advertising budget has increased because our executives have more faith in Centro. Access to Basis provides a lot more transparency to be able to judge whether our spending is cost-effective. We took a gamble by increasing our spend with them because we knew we’d be able to see those results. I’d probably say our investment has been twice as effective.”

Hut-hut-HIKE! Super Bowl LIV is going live on February 2nd, 2020. It's the ultimate face-off between two of the best professional football teams of the season, and the ultimate opportunity for brands to reach millions of viewers.

The Super Bowl is more than just a football game held on the first Sunday in February each year—it’s a cultural event with a live audience unmatched by any other TV program. Millions look forward to the festivities with family and friends, a halftime performance with some of the biggest names in music, and of course, the high-profile commercial ads, commonly known as Super Bowl ads. According to Statista's Super Bowl Survey, these ads are viewers’ second favorite thing about the Super Bowl experience. But the cost of that viewership isn’t cheap: This year, the going rate for a prime, in-game 30-second ad costs between $5-5.6 million and $2-3 million for an ad run during pre- and post-game coverage.

Several brand newbies will be making their Super Bowl debut this year, including Facebook, Sabra, and Kellogg's Pop-Tarts. They’ll be joining regulars like Anheuser-Busch InBev, Avocados from Mexico, Coca-Cola Co., and Audi, to name a few. The game will also get political, with President Donald Trump and Michael Bloomberg's presidential campaigns both buying 60 seconds of ad time.

For brands with widespread name recognition and huge advertising budgets, the decision to advertise at this particular event can be a no-brainer. Brands promote their products during the game to take advantage of the massive viewership that allows them to market to millions of viewers at one time. It's an opportunity to flex their muscles and boost brand awareness, image, and consideration with a one-of-a-kind story that will undoubtedly be talked about for days or weeks past the big game.

However, there are not many companies and advertising agencies that can afford such a large expenditure. After all, $5 million is just the starting point for an ad during Super Bowl. Outside of the price to reserve ad space with the network, the cost for creative development, production, talent, teaser trailer, and more, can make the price of a Super Bowl ad skyrocket. While Linear TV has been critical to the success of the Super Bowl's growing popularity since it first televised in 1967, Advanced TV has recently emerged as a disruptive force.

Forward-thinking marketers and media professionals are now exploring Advanced TV and its benefits as an alternative to Linear. Here are 4 leading benefits:

Advanced TV gives viewers the experience they want: convenience, affordability, premium content, and improved customer support. Viewers watch what they want, when they want, across multiple platforms and devices. In 2019, eMarketer stated that by 2023, 56.1 million U.S. households will no longer have Linear TV and access video entertainment via a digital package. In comparison, 72.7 million households will have Linear TV.

Advanced TV is currently one of the fastest-growing channels in advertising, however, it’s not without growing pains. Advanced TV campaigns require a high level of digital intelligence and adaptability to execute. Luckily, Centro's Basis helps both marketers and media professionals plan, buy, analyze and streamline digital advertising, in order to execute the best-performing TV campaigns.
