Nationwide Home Furnishings brand sitting comfortably with 140% lift in viewer attention for ads enhanced by Origin Slingshot.

As the adage goes - 'What's the point in advertising, if people aren't paying attention?'

Ok, it's not really so much a adage as it is simple common sense. The fact is that CTV advertising is both vital and expensive. And as such, the adoption of mechanisms such as Slingshot which help elevate the odds that someone is even looking at your ad when it runs has been exponential.

Take the example above - a nationwide home furnishings brand had two ways they could have run their regular 30 second ad:

  • In the traditional way, sandwiched between other ads.

  • Stitched and delivered in an immersive and engaging Slingshot environment.

By adopting the second of these options, the ad garnered 140% MORE PHYSICAL ATTENTION than the same ad that ran in a traditional manner.

So what is Slingshot?

Slingshot serves immersive and engaging 15 second Native CTV video content directly adjacent to brand ad creatives inside standard CTV ad breaks. Every time your ad serves, a different version of the Native CTV video content serves every time your ad does.

Where does this 15 second Native CTV video content come from?

Every video your ad gets stitched and served with is made in-house by Origin's team of writers and designers who have 5 years of experience in learning what it takes to bring attention back to the tv screen.

This experience includes a six month study in the renowned MAGNA Media Lab - download report here.

Do I choose the native content my ad serves against?

That's up to you! You can either choose a series from Origin's Slingshot Native CTV content library, or if you would prefer we will study the ad and select a complete series for you.
