Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

Digital/Mobile News
Retailers’ Most Influential Promotional Vehicles, According to Online Shoppers
Emails offering free shipping (54%) or a discount (53%) are the forms of retailer advertising most likely to prompt online shoppers to shop with a retailer, per recently released results from a UPS and comScore study. A recent MarketingCharts study found that consumers are most likely to open emails from brands because the subject line promotes a discount or offer that interests them. Retailers have clearly caught onto this trend, per L2 research, which found last year that some 55% of emails sent during Q1 2014 by the 100 omnichannel retail brands tracked in its study advertised discounts, up from 49% the previous year.

Television News

‘Mr. Robot’ One Of The Top Television Programs Of The Year

Very different. Very unusual. Mezzmerizing. Perhaps Annalee Newitz said it best, while writing about the show in Gizmodo, ‘If you like intense Techno-Thrillers, you need to be watching ‘Mr. Robot’. Imagine a show that combines the anti-corporate craziness of ‘Fight Club’ with the subversive hacker heroism of ‘The Matrix’. Add some great acting, and a fascinating conspiracy that’s unfolding in the hazy realm between our dystopian nightmares and hard reality. That’s ‘Mr. Robot’.’

The star of this show is Rami Malek and to put it mildly, you have never seen anything like his performance before. It is brilliant. While Christian Slater has specialized in being in poor programs which fail, this is not going to be one of them. He is exceptional in his role in this entire matter. If you never loved Coney Island, this program will give you a reason to change your attitude.

But the entire context of the program is presented in such an unusual and interesting fashion by creator Sam Esmail and Director, Niels Arden Oplev. He directed ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ starring Daniel Craig.

In an unusual move, the pilot of ‘Mr. Robot’ titled ‘Hello Friend’ was released by the USA Network early online, and has generated nearly 3 million views across multiple non-linear platforms in the last four weeks. But it paid off. The pilot proved so popular that the network has already picked up the series for a second season. It’s on USA Network on Wednesday evening. Do yourself a favor and catch this one this summer. It is worth your time.
