Addressable TV Growth Spurt

Programmatic TV will draw $10 billion in spend by 2019, according to data from IPG Mediabrands’ Magna Global.

Mobile marketing costs keep growing, according to Fiksu’s data. The app marketing platform says its cost per loyal user hit $2.74 in April, an 80% jump YoY. “While April represented another expensive month for mobile, it’s also an example of the heightened focus on strategic mobile spending by leading brands,” said Fiksu CEO Micah Adler.
