About this report
The Multi-Screen Marketer addresses rapidly shifting consumer media consumption behavior. As devices get smaller and more powerful, our culture is shifting toward instant communication, immediate information gratification and multi-tasking. Consumers are viewing multiple streams of content simultaneously, across a plethora of devices, and brands are learning to chase them across the gaps.
Brand planning and narratives that span tablets, smartphones, laptops, and televisions can create tremendous potential for engagement and sales; failure to adequately anticipate the ways people are interacting with the technology around them can lead to marketing and messaging that is ignored, or worse, out of touch.
This 30-page report, conducted in association with the IAB, examines a number of questions that are central to how advertisers and publishers answer this new evolution in media consumption.
