We welcome case studies from anyone in the online advertising supply chain – including advertisers and agencies – who have campaign examples of online advertising proving effective for driving brand building, awareness, sales, footfall, web traffic or consideration.

The IAB have built a searchable database of case studies that can be used to prove digital’s effectiveness and to demonstrate the case for increased and sustainable investment in online advertising. If you would like to add to this database, we ask that the case studies be provided in a particular format:
