The Game of Politics

2020 POLITICAL AD SPEND
Ready, set, go! Digital advertising is now the largest media expenditure for every major campaign on both political sides, according to AdExchanger. Out with the old (namely TV ads and polling) and in with the new (a mixture of TV, digital and social content distributed via in-house ad buying)! According to Elizabeth Warren and her campaign team, they see the standard campaign as another symbol of Washington corruption and is seeking digital ad spend as an opportunity to do things differently.

Winter is Coming

PEACE, JOY AND DIGITAL
Before you know it the holiday season will be in full swing. Pumpkin spice lattes will be spilt across fall sweaters, Halloween candy will be devoured by eager children, turkeys will be stuffed and Santa will be coming down the chimney. Plan ahead by doubling down on 100% viewable inventory, last year we saw a 21% increase in revenue from June to December. With buyers gearing up their Q4 media budgets, don't get left in the dust, tis' the season for budget dumps.
