Go Beyond Mobile and Add Display Advertising on Desktop to your Marketing Strategy

What is Display Advertising?

Display Advertising (also called Display Marketing) refers to the method of advertising a product or service to a website’s audience on a specific network, through the use of images or videos. Display ads can also be text-based, and encourage the user to click through to a landing page. Display Marketing can be used to increase brand awareness, increase online sales, and drive in-store foot traffic.

Desktop Advertising

While Mobile ads lead and drive foot traffic, desktop ads deliver online sales. Desktop continues to be the platform of choice when making purchasing decisions for products such as personal insurance, travel bookings, or high-value items.
