  2. 2. The Turn Digital Audience Report | July to September 2013 The Rise of the Cross-Channel Brand Global marketers now have an unprecedented opportunity to reach across channels to engage in meaningful conversations with consumers moving from device to device, shifting formats and media. A recent Forrester study reveals that 90% of adults use three different device combinations to complete one simple task, such as booking a restaurant table or buying a pair of pants. And the increased time consumers spend watching videos and spending time on social networks is being noticed by marketers and matched with ad spending from New York to London, from Sao Paulo to Tokyo. In 2013, we see brands ramping up quickly to keep pace with ever-moving consumers, following them across mobile, video, display, and social media. That’s why the “rise of the cross-channel brand” is the perfect theme for our latest report.* Earlier this year, we introduced the Digital Elite, a high-income group of consumers that represent the top 2% of the online audience and attract more advertising spending than any other group. That audience exhibits the most cross-channel behavior of any segment worldwide. Now we’re flipping the script and taking the marketer’s perspective to look into how quickly brands are launching cross-channel strategies, what types of advertisers are seeing the greatest ROI from going cross-channel, and the real impact these campaigns have on consumer engagement. Key insights for the quarter include: • There’s been a 137% increase in brands going multichannel in 2013. • Advertisers who move from a single channel to two or more channels see an average 3x improvement in ROI. • Display ad eCPM grew 5% during the quarter, while mobile and online video eCPM were essentially unchanged. What these best-in-breed global advertisers all have in common is an “audience first” marketing strategy. They use data and analytics from a technology platform such as Turn’s to find their most valuable audience and target them on the right device and the right channel, at the right time, with the right message.

They use data and analytics from a technology platform such as Turn’s to find their most valuable audience and target them on the right device and the right channel, at the right time, with the right message. The key questions for marketers: What combination of insights and technology can you use to get the right message to a media-agnostic consumer? What can you learn from best practices gleaned by analyzing the rise of cross-channel brands? This report showcases insights we’ve gained from the most recent quarter, July to September 2013. We dive deep into the data pertaining to the rise of the cross-channel brands to provide actionable data. Our goal is to help advertisers follow their example and lead data-driven, audience-first strategies across every media channel, format, and device. We also include core global trends in eCPM pricing and formats to provide a snapshot of market forces and the media spending landscape. *Download last quarter’s Global Digital Audience Report at www.turn.com/proof/#digitalaudiencereport Global Digital Audience Report 2
