Can you put a price on persuasion? As we all know, there is both an art and a science to telling persuasive stories, particularly when it comes to advertising. Good marketing requires balancing investments between cutting edge creative, finding and speaking to the right audience, and identifying the best environment for delivering your message. The proliferation of content, drive for automated buying and selling, and continued growth in digital media have made the management of ad placements exponentially more important and, correspondingly, much more complicated.


At this year’s Ad Revenue conference, held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City, over 200 digital marketing leaders responsible for driving innovation and shaping the future of our industry came together to tackle the challenges of cutting through the noise to delivering effective advertising—the price of persuasion.
