Yes Virginia, Mobile Banner Ads Really Can Drive Bricks and Mortar Sales
The purported ineffectiveness of mobile banner ads has become such an article of faith among many marketers and agency execs, its offhanded mention barely gets contested anymore.

These ads even seem able to influence consumers' retail decisions. Go figure.
