Using a series of UK case studies, we’ve look at the return on investment (ROI) across the media mix, from Youtube and search, to TV and outdoor. Working with big name brands, such as: Cadbury, Coke and Flora, we have been able to pull out a number of key findings, including:
- The effectiveness of online marketing at reaching a target audience

And if online advertising can deliver greater efficiency than offline media.

- Considerable evidence to suggest that online advertising drives incremental offline sales
- ROPO clearly impacts purchase behaviour
