ANA has just released the results of our 2013-14 National Television Upfront Survey.  The objective is to better understand this year’s National Television Upfront marketplace from the client-side marketer perspective.   This survey was fielded to a select group of ANA Committee Members and those who have direct oversight of media negotiations were encouraged to complete this survey.

Key highlights:

  • The majority of respondents project an increase in overall media spending for 2013 (41%) and plan to participate in the 2013 National Television Upfront (65%).
    • 26% of total respondents plan to increase overall media spend by +5%
  • Survey results indicate a significant shift of total media dollars from Network TV to other media when compared to last year.
    • The majority of respondents projected Network TV to decrease vs. last year (45%) with other Television (Syndication, Spot TV, DRTV) and traditional media (Print, Radio, etc.) at flat spend.
    • Results reveal significant projected spend increases in online video (+91%), digital/online display (+61%), search (+65%), social (+76%), mobile (+82%) and programmatic buying (+49).
