“Digital video has been chasing TV, and these latest numbers show that we’re starting to pull ad dollars from TV from CPG marketers – some of the most sophisticated advertisers with the largest campaign effectiveness research budgets.”
Indeed, numbers by the IAB and PwC show that mobile video noted some tremendous growth of 178% over the last six month.
The Q3 results do portray summer patterns within the beverages sub-categories, according to Positive Mobile. These were up from 37% in the second quarter to 54%. The snacks category grew to 9.1% in Q3 2016, whilst food subcategory dropped slightly from 15.1% in Q2 to 11.3% in Q3.
