4. YouTube driving attention to CTV inventory


As Connected TV (CTV) becomes a more popular way to consume YouTube content, "In the first half of 2021, YouTube expects to deliver more insights to advertisers regarding what ad creative works best on CTV by compiling takeaways aggregated from the CTV-specific brand lift surveys it started conducting with individual advertisers this year," reported Digiday, citing Debbie Weinstein, VP of Global Solutions at YouTube.
