Sky Italia moves targeted advertising to Turn

November 10, 2014

Sky Italia has selected Turn as its data management platform (DMP) to deliver more personalised advertising experiences to customers and meet a range of digital marketing needs including real-time bidding.

The partnership with Turn is part of a wider move towards programmatic advertising for Sky; 70 per cent of the company’s brand advertising now runs programmatically through the Turn platform. Turn has developed 22 consumer audience profiles for the broadcaster, which can be leveraged to deliver personalised content and experiences. The partnership is facilitated by Simple Agency (AMNET), Sky Italia’s agency of record.

The Turn platform allows Sky Italia to build its own architecture for targeting customer audience segments, enabling the broadcaster to serve different creative content to meet the individual needs and preferences of its broad customer base.

Aldo Agostinelli, Sky Italia Digital Marketing and Sales Director said, “The plethora of data available to the broadcast industry has made digital marketing increasingly complex. Our customers are demanding personalised viewing experiences – and this extends to all of the ways we engage with them through marketing. We needed a way to match data with storytelling and creativity to deliver against the premier viewing experiences for which Sky is known. We’re already seeing greats results from this approach; click-through-rates on ads have doubled, and bounce rates from our website have decreased by 40 per cent.”
