Digital Ad Revenue Increases by 16% in 2014

MediaDailyNews reports on an IAB Internet Advertising Revenue Report showing that U.S digital advertising revenue rose 16% to $49.5 billion in 2014 compared with 2013.

This report, which was prepared by PricewaterhouseCoopers, also shows that social media advertising revenue was $7 billion.  This increase reflects a 57% increase in 2014.

David Silverman, a PricewaterhouseCoopers partner who participated in the IAB conference call, believes that brands have developed strategies to monetize their investments in social media. As a result, there has been an increase in the cost per click for ads running on networks, such as Facebook.

Mobile advertising increased by 76% to $12.5 billion.  Search, digital video, and non-mobile display-related advertising also showed revenue increases.
