Dave Marsey Weighs in On DigiDay's Q of the Week

Brian Morrissey at DigiDay asked an interesting question this week regarding Twitter's Ad Potential.

"Can Twitter build a large-scale ad platform?" 

Dave Marsey, SVP/Group Media Director, weighs in with his expert opinion...

"Not until they increase their appeal to a broader set of consumers. Too many still “don’t get” Twitter. More will come if there’s something of value like exclusive access to content or deals. Dusting off Early Bird and making the offers more targeted and relevant would be a start. Also, providing a more curated experience around individual passion points so consumers don’t miss tweets that truly matter. Finally, add engagement beyond just the retweet."
