The report showcases how brand advertisers are increasingly centering all of their other forms of advertising around tablets, thus increasing metrics related to consumer engagement, click-through rates, video plays, social influence and mobile commerce.

The study, which was conducted by InSites Consulting, surveyed more than 3,600 owners of digital devices in Australia, Singapore, India, UAE, South Africa, Poland, Germany, France and the US in order to determine the growing impact of TV, smartphones, tablets and laptops on people’s news consumption habits. Survey participants were top income earners and owners of at least three devices amongst television, tablet, smartphone and laptop/desktop.

Telling folks heavily invested in the status quo that their world has changed overnight in surprising ways -- and that they need to change with it -- is no easy task.

It’s tougher yet when those folks pay you a lot of money to represent their interests, including predicting future market conditions, and the changes that occurred surprised nearly everyone, happening faster and differently than you had told them they would. Sound familiar? Welcome to the world that many media agencies live in today.
