Overview

Most Internet advertising campaigns are based on hunches and guesswork, because there has not been a standard resource that marketers could turn to for research-backed, trustworthy advice. The Advertising Research Foundation's Online Advertising Playbook is the new benchmark for best practices. It relies on data, not guesswork, to explain what's working and not working on the Internet, and answers all the most vital questions advertisers have about online marketing.

This comprehensive guide will serve as a go-to resource for marketers and brand managers with industry standards for:

  • Reaching your customers with relevant advertising
  • Design principles for effective online ads
  • Budgeting online advertising, and the risks of under-allocating
  • Integrating online advertising with the "traditional" parts of the campaign
  • Achieving marketing objectives—from lead generation to retention and loyalty
  • Measuring the effectiveness of Internet ads and campaigns
  • And much more

Written by experts from The Advertising Research Foundation, The Online Advertising Playbook synthesizes research and learning from over 1,200 research documents on Internet advertising. Marketers, brand managers, and agency professionals who need actionable, scientifically solid principles for successful advertising in this new medium will find it in the Playbook.
