“CMOs, advertisers, agencies, and business owners are constantly looking forward, making decisions for weeks and months in advance,” said C. Lee Smith, president and CEO of Ad-ology Research. “That’s why this app and the Web site are focused on where the market is going to be rather than where it was yesterday,” Smith said.
