IAB Canada recently recognized the DMSC established by IAB in the US as not only valid but quite relevant and necessary to the Canadian market place. This is a thorough and rigorous examination that covers the breadth of knowledge and skills digital media salespeople should possess.
IAB Canada has put together a preparatory three-hour course for Canadian digital media sellers who would like to obtain their certification. We can either arrange for a webinar or an in-person session with your team internally, or you can take this course individually through an online course which will be available shortly.
IAB Canada fully recognizes IAB’s (US) Digital Media Sales Certification (DMSC) for Canadian digital media sellers, and announces the launch of a preparatory course for Canadians. After having thoroughly reviewed the American certification process, topics covered and undergone the examination process, we conclude it matches almost identically the Canadian digital media sales process (read on for details).

Last February I attended IAB’s Annual Leadership Meeting in Miami. One of the speakers that held my attention the most was Dr.Magid Abraham, President, CEO and co-founder of comScore. His presentation focused on the how CPMs have never gone up since online advertising began and that with our current model (note the recent talk by many on the death of the page view: AdAge, Mitch Joel and Doug Weaver to name but 3) it is impossible to increase the value of the ad impression as we know it.
