As the world is becoming increasingly more connected, marketers have the opportunity to engage their audiences through more touchpoints, delivering an increased number of services and fulfilling more of people’s needs.
For years 'finding the right channel' has led to a focus on reach, and the movement of media time from 'traditional' to 'digital'. Connected Life shows online is playing an increasing complementary role, with mobile allowing people access to content whenever and wherever.
