The IAB report is out.  In 2016 for the full year, the total digital ad spend was $72.5 billion.  Growth in digital ad spending is still strong with an increase over 21% from 2015 to 2016. Randall Rothenberg, the CEO of IAB said the following about mobile’s role in this growth and overall ad spend: “Mobile fueled the internet economy in 2016, with advertisers showing their confidence in digital to achieve their marketing goals. This increasing commitment is a reflection of brands’ ongoing marketing shift from ‘mobilefirst’ to ‘mobile-only’ in order to keep pace with today’s on-the-go consumers.” Screenshot 2017-05-03 at 11.15.11 PM We aren’t just talking about banner or text advertising.  In 2016, we saw the first time audio actually had its own category in digital ad spend.  Audio units saw over $1 billion.
