Some things never change. For all of the efficiency and interactivity the digital revolution has brought to the marketing world, the basics of advertising continue to hold true. Great brands want to align themselves with great content, build rich experiences that leverage a medium’s creative palette, and maintain control over where and how their messages reach consumers. The online marketplace of search and nano-targeting banner technologies have been a boon to direct marketers large and small. And yet, big brands still crave the three perennial Cs: Control over placement, Contexts that resonate with customers, and Creativity that brings real impact to a message. A large share of digital ad dollars continues to flow to the clean, well-lit places because that is where branding still happens best.

Even “creativity” isn’t quite what it used to be. With torrents of data parsing every aspect of customer behavior and attitudes, the data and analytics that always drove performance media may be taking the wheel of premium display as well. We ask both the creative and media teams how big ideas now get born, parsed and planned in a fragmented landscape. And those bigger concepts have to reach consumers across multiple channels. So how are agencies and publishers working together to craft, scale and measure the integrated campaigns that promise to capture fragmented audiences? And then we turn to the emerging channels to find the best practices that are defining “premium” in so many ways in the social feed, on custom video platforms and of course of the most challenging screen of all – mobile. 

From generating that big idea to all the many ways high impact messaging courses through an always-there, multi-screen media economy, premium display advertising is not immune to the omni-channel planning and attention fragmentation that affects all media now. OMMA Premium Display at Advertising Week tries to put together the pieces for a more actionable view of high impact brand messaging of the future.
