$200,000,000 was spent on online advertising in New Zealand in 2008. But what percentage of those thousands of ads were effective? How many were ignored, or, worse still, annoyed the very consumers they were supposed to persuade?

In our first breakfast briefing of 2009, Optimal Usability invites you to join us, together with Mike Pethig from Ad Protocol, to learn how to balance of the needs of your website visitor while maximizing advertising revenue.

We will share with you the results of reviewing nearly 50 academic papers and research reports, and provide recommendations from real-world experience of online advertising in New Zealand.
