Various studies say targeted ads can lead to negative consumer feelings. One such study highlighted that 38% of adults find targeted ads creepy, and 49% of consumers said they have been incorrectly targeted by the ads.

This can cause major problems, like unsubscribing the brand’s content or blocking ads, for advertisers. While targeted advertising is a powerful tool, marketers need to be careful about how they execute them to resonate and instill trust in consumers. Advertisers need to re-evaluate their ad patterns, re-target users who interact with CTV advertising. This ensures CTV brand ads are seen by the target audience at the right time.
