​Think mobile

Mobile display ad

When planning your programmatic media budgets, have you given a thought to mobile? Mobile has been growing as an inventory source year on year and it’s becoming now, more than ever before, an integral part of advertisers’ media plans.

The statistics speak for themselves; advertisers in the UK spent 43% of their digital display budget on mobile in 2015 – up from just 34% in 2014. People now spend on average 1 hour and 45 minutes a day on their devices and portable devices are the primary access point for using the Internet. Finally, in 2016 the average UK household owns 8.3 connected devices. So if you’re not yet running on mobile and want to dive into a mobile display strategy, we can help you get started.
