About Sky AdSmart

Sky AdSmart works by over-laying national scheduled advertising with your advert, direct to households that have an audience within your target area or demographic. Through GForces’ exclusive partnership with Sky, we are bringing pin-point targeted TV advertising to the automotive retail sector.

You can select households based on information derived from Sky’s customer data and consumer profiling from Experian. Advertisers are only charged if a viewer watches over 75% of an advert at normal speed, and it’s possible to cap the number of times an advertisement is shown. In addition, GForces’ Media Services and Marketing expertise enable us to create and run a Sky AdSmart campaign from start to finish.

In Q1 2014, GForces Media Services team devised and filmed a Sky AdSmart advert for Subaru as a key component for launching the new Forester and XV.


“The concept developed by GForces to support our Subarural life campaign hit the brief perfectly, and we are incredibly pleased with the outcome. The location, casting, music and final edit appeal very effectively to our target demographic, and through the use of Sky AdSmart, is far more likely to reach them. The design of both the Forester and XV for those with a Subarural lifestyle was also expertly conveyed. In addition, the content-rich landing page marries with the television advertising, strengthening the message and driving up engagement.”
