Monarch DR, a direct response media buying agency, announces that its short-form direct response campaign Ultimate Detangling Brush by Michel Mercer ranked No. 3 for the week ending June 14, as reported by the Infomercial Monitoring Service (IMS). Monarch purchased media for and managed the media strategy for the campaign.

Beginning in July, the IMS Report will include both Spanish and English-speaking ad spaces. While the Spanish channels will initially be reported separately, the company envisions an eventually consolidated report.

Media giant Gannett is planning to expand by creating its own TV programs that "will likely incorporate aspects of social media in their mix," writes Michael Malone.

Google will end 2013 with 56 percent – about $8.85 billion – of worldwide investments in mobile advertising, eMarketer reports. The research firm estimates Google earned $4.61 billion in mobile Internet ad revenue last year, more than triple its earnings in 2011. It also netted $32.7 billion in digital ad revenue in 2012, nearly 31.5 percent of total worldwide digital ad budgets.

Mobile ad firm Mojiva will open its Mocean mobile ad-serving platform to advertisers and agencies in addition to existing products for publishers, ad networks and app stores.

Dispop, an online ad design firm, unveils an ad design platform marketers can use to tap into a network of designers. Dispop promises quality designs and allows for testing of multiple banner variations.

It’s really impossible to guess which ads do best without the tests.”

Apple's newest version of its operating system for mobile devices, unveiled last week, has new features that could make it harder for ad networks to track consumers.

Mobile rewards network Kiip adds a self-serve option for advertisers aimed at attracting more small- and medium-sized businesses to the rewards-based platform.
