Digital video, per eMarketer, will account for 31% of retail display ad spent this year – increasing by 25% from 2016.

Mobile advertising is the clear focus for retail, accounting for 70% of digital ad spend in 2017.

When it comes to other media, retailers are still spending big on Television, dwarfing all other categories combined.  Digital companies are using television, too.  Did you notice who was the presenting sponsor for the World Series on broadcast TV this year?  Google.
