November 14: Last Chance of 2012
IAB Digital Media Sales Certification

Are you an expert in digital media sales? What about your team? Prove it—to your clients, to your employer, and to yourself. Success with the IAB Digital Media Sales Certification confirms that you have a solid foundation in the field, understanding the core concepts, guidelines, and best practices in interactive advertising, and it positions you for success. The last testing window of 2012 begins October 1 and ends November 14.

IAB member organizations—including Collective—understand what earning the certification signifies. What are you waiting for? Collective recently required its entire sales team to participate. “The interactive landscape is too competitive—and too complex—not to make sure that your executives are fully equipped with the intricate knowledge base and skill sets they need in order to thrive,” said Jed Savage, EVP, Media Sales and Strategy, Collective.

Take the test. And, make sure your team does too. Learn more and apply.

“I think it’s really important to be able to say I am an expert in the field of digital advertising and this certification proves that.”
– Alison O’Brien, Digital Product Manager, DMSC, The Roanoke Times

“Taking this exam is an experience that has meaning and value.”
– Kristine Bonds, Regional Director, Sales, DMSC, Collective

Consumer Travel & The Media”—a recently released IAB study—revealed that travel is the #1 major purchase planned among U.S. consumers in next six months, with digital media providing vital access to travel intenders. Nearly a quarter (23%) of Americans are planning vacation travel in the next six months. Falling directly behind travel in spending intentions are computers (16%), furniture (14%), and a new car (11%). The findings also show that these soon-to-be travelers are heavier media users than the general population, pointing to advertising opportunities—particularly within digital—for airline, hotel, and cruise marketers.

Spotlighting a sector of the digital advertising economy that offers great financial opportunity, but has yet to be fully embraced, the IAB and the Local Search Association released an in-depth whitepaper entitled “Co-Op Advertising: Digital’s Lost Opportunity?” The report looks at digital entryways for the traditional advertising practice of splitting costs between manufacturers and retailers when an advertisement benefits both parties. Outlining co-op advertising’s potential rewards for the interactive ecosystem, the paper also highlights challenges that would need to be overcome in order to take advantage of its merits.
