IAB Europe’s White Paper on Online brand advertising


Publisher: IAB Europe Brand Advertising Committee
Publication: June 2010


This White Paper is the first project of the IAB Europe Brand Advertising Committee and aims to prove and promote the web as a vehicle for branding, as well as to educate readers about the power and value of digital for brand advertisers.

Based on the huge demand from the advertising industry for more detailed information, research and case studies that prove the strength of digital for online branding it provides an holistic view of measurement, formats, targeting and cross-media as well as useful evidence of how digital campaigns can support brands. The findings are based on insights, analysis and experience from the most respected market players, advertisers, research companies and service providers in the industry.

While acknowledging the industry’s rapidly growing success, the report’s author, Eric Urdahl, Chairman of IAB Europe’s Brand Advertising Steering Committee and Head of International Business at United Internet Media AG Germany, challenges complacency among advertisers who are reluctant to invest effective budgets in digital advertising. He points out that there is still a yawning gap between ad spend online and offline in spite of the proven edge that online has in delivering impressive results for brand advertising.
