In the past year, broadcasters and producers have had to use their imaginations to complete their schedules or film despite the pandemic in order to deliver rich and entertaining programming. If some projects are put on ice, the upcoming school year promises to be a regular one and will welcome its share of novelties. Premium programs that are really attractive to advertisers.

Our television cannot survive without advertisers. On the contrary, appearing on a popular show can go a long way in the field of brand promotion.

“The broadcasters have coped very well last year with high-quality productions,” says Marie-Christine Simard, vice president of events at Cosette Media. If advertisers were a bit more at the last minute due to the instability of the pandemic, the good news now is that they are there. There is hardly any stock. “

Thus, each program finds its partners.

We also note that TVA is trying to revamp its goal with concepts like love islandAnd masked singers And Chaos. »

Is it seducing an audience not in front of traditional channels?

“Télé-Québec offers a strong and stable network, and a desirable environment for advertisers whose profiles differ from that of other publics,” notes Marie-Christine Simard. Featured And my twenties Awarded 3 and a half and 3 stars respectively. “

Fairy tales are very popular among the public and advertisers. Rebecca Rodriguez notes that “the acquisition of Noovo by Bell has allowed the channel to have productions appearing in the top 20 channels as well as access to a larger catalog in French and English.”

And what about the headlines in an era of search for new faces and diversity?

Marie-Christine Simard stresses, “One or two big names can attract attention, so give value to a project. Diversity is more important and we encourage it. Broadcasters play their part and advertisers too.”

Thus, to motivate advertisers and determine the value of their placements, agencies rely on the history and performance of the program according to the target audience if it is not new, the type of environment, its summary and star system.

“Contrary to what we see in the rest of Canada, Quebec’s audience is very attached to its stars,” confirms Rebecca Rodriguez. See that’s an incentive for people to watch. Emissions are also evaluated based on station estimates. We evaluate what the program will play against, if the competition will affect the audience. “

In addition, for an advertiser to be associated with a program, it must demonstrate that it is reaching the target audience, that this connection is natural and coherent, and that there are opportunities for integration thanks to digital extensions.

« From It works very well at this level,” asserts Ms. Simard. In short, television is no longer just television. It is 360 degrees, providing more opportunities for advertisers who want to display there.
