Man "Scans to Win" New Hyundai
New Port Richey, Fla. – James Morocco of Holiday recently won a Hyundai Sonata, courtesy of Hyundai of New Port Richey, and paid for by Odds On Promotions. Morocco won the brand new 4-door sedan after receiving a promotional mailer advertising the dealership's "Road Trip Ready" special offers.
The mailer featured a scratch-off area, which revealed the addressee was a "WINNER" and directed them to visit a personalized URL (PURL) to select their grand prize of choice, either $20,000 or a brand new car. Morocco selected a brand new car, where the site then instructed him to visit the dealership to present the mailer to the sales team to see exactly what he had won—the grand prize he had selected, or one of six other guaranteed high-value prizes. Once at the dealership, the sales team scanned a barcode embedded in the mailer, revealing that Morocco had won the new car!

Where's the Mobile Ad Money Coming From Next Year?
Oct 30, 2014 Smartphones beat tablets for delivering ad results; tablets win for engagement Advertisers are shifting ad dollars to mobile and away from other formats in order to drive customer engagement, reach consumers across platforms, build brand awareness and drive retail or online sales, according to a July 2014 study by Advertiser Perceptions. But where will those dollars come from over the next year? Print, television and digital display are the chosen ones.
More than 40% of US advertising decision-makers who planned to increase mobile ad spending over the next 12 months said they were taking money out of their print advertising budget to do so, while 34% said the same about TV ads. Even digital ads aren’t safe. Nearly one-third of respondents said they would lower investments in digital display advertising in order to spend more on mobile. A lucky 38% of respondents planned to fund higher mobile spending thanks to an overall expansion of their budgets.
Mobile will likely continue to grab ad dollars away from these formats—and possibly others—as it continues its rapid expansion over the coming years. This year, eMarketer estimates that US advertisers will increase spending on mobile ads by 78.0%, pushing the total to nearly $19 billion, and next year, growth will come in at 50.0% for mobile ad spending of $28.48 billion. Even in 2018, expenditure on mobile advertising in the US will expand by nearly 20% to raise the total to $58.78 billion.
Whether advertisers put their mobile dollars toward smartphone or tablet ads depends on what they’re trying to achieve. Advertiser Perceptions found that smartphones were better than tablets for delivering ad results such as impressions, awareness and return on investment, and they also beat the bigger screen for audience and targeting. Meanwhile, tablets won for engagement and user experience.
