Across all charter campaigns measured, 69 percent of the ad impressions were classified as being ‘in-view.’* The remaining 31 percent were delivered but never seen by a consumer, a likely result of a consumer scrolling past the ad before it loaded or a consumer never scrolling the ad into view. In-view percentages varied by site and ranged from 7 percent to 100 percent.An average of 4 percent of ad impressions were delivered outside the desired geography, but individual campaigns ran as high as 15 percent. In many cases, ads were served in markets where the advertised product is not sold, meaning wasted ad spend and sub-optimal effectiveness results.

Solution: Get out of the sidebar, and into the content Quit trying to be a distraction Get into the conversation Banner ads on a social site is not social advertising Simple test: “Is my message in the widest column on the page?”
Facebook likes aren’t the silver bullet• Facebook Fan/Like Reach Rates (Brand Pages) – 2009: 48% – 2010: 35% – 2011: 24% – 2012: 16% <- but you can PAY for more ―We must acknowledge that our customer relationships [on Facebook] are not owned — they’re rented‖ – Ben Winkler, Chief Digital Officer OMD Facebook: little branding and hard to truly engage a consumer
