New Edition of Michael Collette's INdustry Column Profiles Interactive TV Advertising Agency, BrightLine

--BrightLine Has Conducted Over 280 Interactive Ad Campaigns

[itvt] is pleased to present the latest edition of INdustry, our new column by interactive TV industry veteran, Michael Collette, managing director of MediaTech Strategies.

This edition of the column sees Collette profiling interactive/advanced TV advertising agency, BrightLine: "The key to BrightLine's success is their ability to intelligently map the capabilities of each system to the advertiser's objective," Collette writes. "They've managed to wiggle their way into a position where they have an opportunity to review the strategy brief for a given campaign. They then run this through a system they've built where they input the strategy and the audience target, and the system kicks out a list of tactics for each platform. Importantly, they're not bound to technology...With over 280 campaigns under their belt, and a growing list of customers, they know what is doable, what it will cost, what the range of responses is likely to be, and, all importantly, how it will be measured."
