  •   As we close in on Q4, we begin to see an uptick in both spending and purchasing across the retail and CPG verticals within digital advertising. From Thanksgiving to Black Friday into Cyber Monday, consumers are converting online and spending at a higher rate.During this webinar I will review some key research findings from 2012’s holiday season that will shed some light on what to expect this year. We will also be reviewing our Q4 holiday benchmarks to help our clients gauge their performance as we close out the year

  • Some additional points to be aware of/look out forBe prepared that the following might make you uncomfortable.
  • As we saw in the previous stat’s consumers are using mobileUsing to shop, compare, search, and socializeIssues are within the technologyOne ad can be running on 2 different operating systems, 3 different browsers with varying browser version all with different specificationsNot to mention which device they are viewing it on which also have unique and complicated requirements. All of these different variables can require different modification, planning, and development to run correctly which all require time and money.
  • Thecost to build in each platform is very expensive. HTML5 resources typically cost upwards of 20% more than Flash.Social has strict limitations and requires complex development especially within rich media and Facebook. In-Stream video is powerful, but complicated. Timing is often the greater concern due to video production/rendering times and multitude of publisher specs.
