State-of-the-Art Geo-Targeting Technology that Increases a Brand’s Impact

Utilize this advanced targeting technology to simultaneously broadcast different commercials to different audiences—even within the same market--all with one buy. Read more about Geographic Targeting featuring Adtag™ & Adcopy™

Comcast Spotlight advertisers can utilize two advanced targeted TV applications, Adtag and Adcopy, to simultaneously broadcast different commercials to different market segments — all with one buy!

How do Adtag and Adcopy work?

  • Adtag – allows advertisers to finish commercials with customized 5-second “tags” that are specific to a geographic location. For example, tag #1 could say “Visit our new showroom on Main Street!” and tag #2 could be “Visit our showroom on Route 78 today!”
  • Adcopy – enables advertisers to simultaneously run completely different commercials to different audiences within the same market. For example, two households are watching the same program, yet one sees an ad for a new minivan, while in another part of town, the other sees a commercial for the latest hybrid car.

Now advertisers can tailor the mix of commercials without sacrificing the opportunity to build a brand across an entire region. That’s efficiency. That’s effectiveness.

Different products? Different messages? One brand? No problem!

Tap Into the Power of Cable TV to Reach Millions of Voters

Audience fragmentation for advertisers has become more of a challenge than ever before but fortunately Comcast Spotlight is uniquely positioned to help advertisers reach and assemble fragmented audiences: across multiple networks and screens. And with more elections decided by smaller margins, reaching every prospective voter is crucial.

It's All About Video

Well over half of all television impressions take place on advertising-supported cable networks. That means the voters who can make the difference in an election aren’t just watching the news: they’re spending their Sunday nights with Mad Men and The Walking Dead; their evenings with the NFL, the NBA and the NHL; and their late nights with Conan and Colbert—all on cable.

What’s more, they’re multitasking more than ever before. While they’re watching one show on a TV, they’re watching video clips, checking their email and surfing the web on their phones, tablets and laptops.

If advertisers are not reaching voters on both TV and online through integrated multi-screen marketing plans, they’re missing impressions that can make the difference in a political race.

The Right Message for the Right Audience

Which issues are most important to the voters you’re trying to reach? That may be different based on where they live and what they watch. With the ability to segment your advertising demographically and geographically, Comcast Spotlight can ensure an advertiser’s message resonates with the desired audience.
