Silverbullet empowers Channel 4 to unlock the full potential of its data-driven future



Channel 4 were looking to unveil a pioneering collection of data-driven, digital advertising products on All 4, offering their advertisers a unique targeting capability in a post-GDPR, cookieless environment. Enter SilverBullet.

What was the role of digital within the media mix?

Their new Advanced Data Suite consisted of three key products:

  • Brandm4tch (allowing clients to ‘Bring their own data’

  • Approved (offering targeting solutions for advertisers to build pre-existing or bespoke segments)

  • Bespoke (offering the ability to ‘Build their own audience’)

The broadcaster needed an expert data and tech partner to support them throughout their entire data life-cycle and identify the correct technology platforms in order to succeed. 

The four key objectives were:

  • Generate new revenue through the use of customer data

  • Design a new adtech ecosystem to execute media buying

  • Create a data-centric culture throughout the business

  • Explore intelligence-driven marketing and activation methods

Silverbullet supported Channel 4 in the analysis and understanding of their data, the implementation and integration of core technology platforms, and the roll out of their Advanced Data Suite offering.

  • 83% overall brand uplift using Brandm4tch

  • +180% uplift in monthly orders from Brandm4tch segments of lapsed customers
