Toronto, ON – August 7, 2019 – The fact that consumers live in a multiscreen world is not a new phenomenon. Consumers have increased control over how and when they consumer content. In this latest report, iProspect and the Dentsu Aegis Network are shedding light on the correlation between television and the various screens people access. Future success and growth lies in the ability to effectively capture consumer attention and engagement across multiple screens.

“The customer journey is by no means a linear one. In fact, it is almost entirely informed by the customer and their content consumption habits which are more diverse than ever before,” says Dan Kalinski, President, iProspect Canada. “Multi-screen viewing is on the rise and the future belongs to those brands who adapt and embrace to this consumer behaviour by creating content and telling their story in a more interactive way across multiple device touchpoints.”

Not unlike the US market, Canadians are taking engaging with brands via search and social platforms to learn more about products and services seen on television.
