  41. 41. We should be everywhere. 41
  42. 42. Our Advertising Clients Should Be Too (We’ll Help) THE PROBLEM: Creative agencies continue to build in Flash, a format that doesn’t translate to mobile. Static images typically used to back up Flash are boring. THE SOLUTION: Business Insider offers Flash to HTML5 conversion, allowing creative to flourish on all screens. 42
  43. 43. In-stream “Native” Mobile Placements (Sponsor Content) 43 Sponsor content in-stream on smartphones  Major uptick in engagement.
  44. 44. So what’s next? 44
  45. 45. Cross-Device Targeting With Big Data With device fragmentation (and lack of cookies), it’s difficult to reach the same readers as they move between devices. Using our own and third-party data, we’ll soon be able to do so. Cross-Device Targeting Same Reader 45
