Ah, fall—otherwise known as the smooth and leafy transition into the holiday season. The fact that it overlaps with the holidays is plenty more reasons for advertisers not to turn a blind eye. Think fall conscious consumers who are looking to update their wardrobes, early-bird shoppers swooping in for holiday deals, and more. If you need more reason to switch on those fall campaigns, take a look at these stats for size: global ecommerce sales will hit $5.5 trillion this year, more than three-quarters (76%) of American adults shop online and 85% of consumers go online at least once a day. Let’s take a look at some of the audience segments you can apply to your CTV advertising campaigns this season.
