Rakhee Jogia, Director of Display, Rakuten Marketing comments on the findings:

“Spend across digital channels is increasing as marketers seek more accountable marketing methods and people turn to connected devices. In order to engage with consumers today, brands need to provide an experience with their advertising, offering something truly beneficial to customers.

It’s absolutely critical to create a functionality for consumers so that they can take action from your ad. You can immediately add more value to your campaign when your banners become interactive or when your product image or information is dynamic. Brands need to work with a new mantra for these formats: ‘dynamic, targeted and actionable’ – this is the only way to drive sales in today’s connected world.”
