What do we cover?
We're spotlighting different areas of digital each week - including gaming, audio, VOD and in-app - providing advertisers and agencies with valuable insights into their audiences so they can make informed media decisions in these unprecedented times.
Podcast breaks, motivational morning playlists, smart speaker use - what effect has COVID-19 had on our daily audio habits? Many brands are looking for answers to this as we adapt to the COVID-19 outbreak, so we’ve pulled together reports on listening habits from the IAB UK Audio Advisory Group, to help advertisers and agencies better understand and connect with their locked-down audiences.
