About

Since its launch in 2006, Beet.TV has been considered an essential media chronicle of the digital video revolution. In recent years, it has deeply reported on ad-tech innovation and the transformation of television.

Unlike a traditional publisher, Beet.TV uses video to serve as a “virtual meeting place” where the industry “meets” to learn and share with colleagues through a form factor of short, direct videos.

It also creates unique, high level industry events. However, due to the pandemic, it is not creating events or covering physical events in 2020.

Beet.TV tells its stories with short, well-edited and informational videos. The videos break news, report on industry developments and spot the trends. Up close and personal, the videos provide unique insight into the passion and point of view of industry influencers.

An influential, global audience views 1000 video views per day on the site and many more via social and syndication.

Videos are produced at the Beet.TV studio in Manhattan, at industry events such as CES, DMEXCO, Cannes Lions, and Advertising Week. Many videos are produced at Beet.TV’s signature “leadership” events.

During the pandemic, all videos are produced remotely using Zoom and WebEx.

Email Subscriptions Driving Results for Partners

As the publication chronicles a transformative industry, reports on news, and profiles the key players, it provides unique value to its marketing partners or Sponsors. This is why so many partners come back and why business is growing.

Partnerships with Beet are unique, creative, and bespoke. They are constructed to achieve key business objectives. Beet.TV provides valuable branding to its marketing partners by associating videos with the Sponsor in the form of pre-roll and post roll ads, video segments, banners, association via social media, and retargeting.

These videos drive awareness of company innovation, and institutional culture. This branding drives business, investment, recruiting, and overall enhanced perception.

In addition to the branding aspect is the face-to-face settings where relationships are built and business is made. These take place at Beet’s custom events and executive retreats.
