Powering Up: Helping UK SMEs unlock the value of digital advertising

Drawing on evidence from nearly 1,200 UK SMEs, ’Powering Up’ explores how small businesses are using digital advertising, where they feel it excels and where more support is needed from the digital industry to help the market’s recovery in the wake of COVID-19. 

The study, which has been conducted with MTM, shows that while SMEs’ uptake of digital is high and perceptions positive, there are also opportunities for digital advertisers to provide more accessible guidance for SMEs, to encourage greater use of online channels and maximise the value they deliver.

Mobile, in the Year of Mobile

It's official. After a decade of being talked up, shouted down and arguably over-egged, the much heralded 'Year of Mobile' finally arrived in 2018. UK advertisers are now investing more in mobile than any other media - so should we be basking in the glory of mobile's ascendancy? Or does it once and for all confirm that mobile no longer requires a 'year of'?
