In this study, the authors investigate how weather influences the effectiveness of different advertising channels. Specifically, they use field data from an online streaming provider to capture advertising-spending, -reach, as well as subscriptions. Furthermore, weather data from different weather stations across Germany are matched with customer data. The authors analyze five different advertising channels: television, e-mail, affiliate, online display and search engine. By applying a count regression, preliminary empirical evidence suggests that weather-induced changes in media consumption might leverage advertising effectiveness.
