And while growth wasn’t as high as originally forecast, a +5.7% growth in digital ad sales is still expected. Overall ad spend in all mediums will be buoyed by the presidential election in the US, but digital’s resilience is due to four factors:
- Huge rise in consumption
- Acceleration of e-commerce
- Marketers choosing lower-funnel tactics (direct response)
- Uptick in Small Business spending
