  4. 4. 1 Networked Advertising Introduction The advertising business has changed forever. Historical boundaries found in traditional print and broadcast advertising no longer apply online. In turn, broadcast television, cable television, print, and outdoor advertising are now challenged to adopt new paradigms. The industry is still very strong, but many leaders now insist that advertising as we know it will have to adopt completely new digital business models to survive and thrive going forward. Those new business models and new ways of understanding audiences will, in part, shape the future of the industry. What has caused such a dramatic and For this white paper, KPMG went to important change?

  9. 9. Networked Advertising 6 More Complicated Than Ever The Industry Perspective Greg Stuart has insights that stem from a diverse advertising career that includes five years as CEO of the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB)—an industry group of more than 400 leading media and technology companies that sell nearly 90 percent of online advertising in the United States—and coauthoring the book What Sticks (Kaplan Business Books, 2006) a research-based look at what makes advertising effective. “As the digital advertising ecosystem Online, a marketer’s dollar dwindles evolves at a furious pace, its myriad to nickels and pennies en route to a technical complications, options, publisher (or whoever touches the and opportunities seem almost consumer last), Stuart explains, because overwhelming, Greg Stuart says. ” of all the pieces needed to make a buy “The relationships between agencies, today.
