Kicking off the first quarter of 2018, the Financial Services category continued to dominate by relative frequency of impressions across display, mobile, and video digital advertising channels. You probably came across an ad for LendingTree, Geico, TurboTax, and H&R Block on sites like AOL, YouTube, and MSN.
The Financial Services category spent over $582.7M across platforms for the quarter, with the Retail category following at $485M across platforms. Retail looked to desktop display and video as the biggest parts of their advertising campaigns while Financial Services advertisers focused on display.
