    • Media Measurement TodayDigital is hard to characterize Awareness 
 q  Strategic + Tactical (Display, Email, Social, q  Branding + Performance Mobile, Fat Tail Search)! Consideration
Digital touches customers throughout! (Display, Mid-Tail the funnel Search, Social)! q  Can t win by simply harvesting demand Preference
