Women in Digital Member +1 Meetup

Detroit Women in Digital November Meetup - Members +1

This month we are diving into mobile!

This month's theme: Optimize for Mobile Eyes

With ad budgets shifting to mobile, marketers are looking for unique ways to break through to consumers. But what types of ads are best suited for the mobile screen?

Kargo partnered with MediaScience to evaluate the effectiveness of nine different mobile ad formats within the mobile web environment, including industry standard banner units, animated display ads, and short-form video units of various sizes. Join Jessica Phan as she uncovers which formats excel on mobile devices and how marketers can take advantage of understanding how consumers respond to a wide variety of ad unit formats.

The objective of the study was to identify which mobile ad formats produce the strongest brand impact via survey metrics such as awareness and likeability, along with an understanding of how consumers implicitly react to ads by measuring eye tracking and biometrics. The study was conducted with participants in MediaScience’s media labs across New York, Chicago, and Austin. A mixed experimental design was set up so that each participant was randomly exposed to five different brands and ad formats within the predetermined editorial content.

"I recently attended my first Women in Digital meet up and it was unlike any other 'networking' event. While every person in the room was there in a professional capacity, there was an undercurrent of shared values, shared struggles and shared desire for change.

It was a powerful experience to see women band together to raise each other up in a way that only women can. I can't recommend joining Women in Digital enough. This is a professional community that feels like the home we never knew we needed but have always been seeking." - Alaura Weaver, Copywriter + Content Strategist
