“As the digital ad sector in Brazil grows and becomes more sophisticated, we are seeing an influx of large brand advertisers increasing their marketing allocation to this medium,” said Mr. Banks, comScore managing director for Brazil. “While it’s only natural that marketing dollars follow eyeballs, it’s also true that the improving quality of digital creative, the ability to efficiently target the right audiences, and measurability of campaign performance has helped develop digital into a medium where smart marketers can derive a lot of value and marketing return-on-investment.”
Retailers Drive Display Ad Market in Brazil
comScore introduced its Ad Metrix service in Brazil earlier this year providing insight into where display ad impressions appear online, the demographic composition of the audiences reached, along with traditional advertising metrics such as reach/frequency and GRPs.
