Multiscreen advertising done right: How businesses can profit from media consumption trends

Over the past 10 years, the number of screens in the average consumer’s life has increased from a single electronic device to multiple interconnected devices. Today’s consumers have the option to communicate with businesses using numerous forms of technology, including their computer, mobile phone, tablet, television, and even their watch.

As a result of this shift in consumer habits, multiscreen advertising campaigns have become much more prominent and have encouraged businesses to accommodate their campaigns for multiple screens and modes of media consumption.

Targeting potential clients on various devices can be tricky and requires careful research to identify the right audience, message, and device to make the advertisement most effective. However, multiscreen advertising also provides businesses with the unique opportunity to create and repurpose content for countless gadgets and online platforms.
