Regarding the addressable experience, Sheila previously told MARKETING Magazine, “Advertisers are always excited to explore new avenues. Although it will always start with test, and learn at the beginning, eventually it will pick up. So, the formatted way of media planning and buying will be changing, and for that to happen we will need mindset shift – agencies putting forward the recommendation, and clients being receptive to set a side budget for the exploratory work.”
