Display Advertising

Display Advertising

From impressions to dynamic retargeting. Online banners were once all about generating impressions to leverage brand awareness. If in some cases we can question the quality of these impressions and oppose the rise of ad-blockers, a real display strategy can actually be a performance driver. That is maybe one of the reasons why display ads still represent 20% of digital marketing spend.
