As an advertising firm, we are incredibly excited to be a part of the industry during its growth and expansion. The digital advertising technology is truly booming. Not only is digital advertising taking over a bigger piece of overall advertising spend, but the new technologies within digital advertising are also growing in popularity, as demonstrated by increases in native, video and programmatic spend. Next on the horizon? The continued growth of Audio and Connected TV (CTV) advertising opportunities as the numbers grow for users on at least one CTV platform, such as Roku, Google Chromecast and Amazon FireTV, and Audio platforms, including Spotify and AdsWizz. Of course, this won't overshadow the increase in targeting for the on-the-go shopper with a boost in mobile advertising compared to display.

The numbers do truly speak for themselves and, based on trends predicted, will only increase the power of digital advertising and the various channel opportunities for advertisers. If you are a numbers person, this is the proof you've probably been looking for if you've been hesitant to jump on the digital advertising train. We promise you jumping on the train will lead to a great ride and the views will be filled with new, interested shoppers.
