BIA estimates ad spending in local TV and location-targeted mobile will nearly reach $43 billion in 2018. Advertisers will spend $20.8 billion in local television and $22.1 billion in location-targeted mobile to target audiences in 2018.
The report Local TV and Location: How Targeted Mobile Intelligence Creates High Impact Campaigns examines the growth for each media and how marketers are integrating the channels to unify their ability to effectively reach, target and engage consumers in a multi-platform environment.
“Today’s marketers increasingly rely on data-infused audience targeting to deliver relevant cross-platform messaging throughout the consumer’s journey to purchase. TV and mobile are two of the most powerful platforms that audiences are using daily in a unified, not fragmented, experience. Advertisers who integrate audience targeting on TV with location targeting on mobile can achieve an incredibly powerful one-two marketing punch.” Rick Ducey, report author and managing director, BIA Advisory Services
