Direct to Consumer Launch

Born Online: how Direct to Consumer brands are reshaping retail

Over the last decade, the UK retail industry has seen the rise of new, innovative brands that aren’t afraid to disrupt the status quo and do things differently. These brands – like eve, Thread and Bloom & Wild – are born online, build direct relationships with their loyal customer bases and put data and personalisation at the heart of what they do. They are Direct to Consumer (DTC) brands.

In a new study, the IAB has identified the 50 leading DTC brands in the UK, explored their stories, spoken to their founders and surveyed the people that buy from them. Join us as we look behind the scenes of this new breed of companies and find out how they are using digital to reshape the consumer retail landscape.

Mobile Trends

2018 was the year that mobile took the majority of online ad spend – 51% of a £13.44 billion market (IAB UK & PwC Digital Adspend Study). This is in no small part down to the shift in consumers now spending 64% of their online time on a smartphone (UKOM).

In this seminar, the speakers will aim to bring you latest insights, future trends and top tips within mobile marketing. You’ll learn how to effectively create, plan, and execute your campaigns and come away feeling confident about how to make mobile work for your business.
