What Ad Sellers Really Think

Digiday partnered with SellerCrowd to find out what ad sellers really think about their jobs. SellerCrowd, a community of 6,600 sellers of digital advertising, sent out the survey to its users. The data below is based on responses from 262 respondents: 31 percent of respondents are in their 20s, 44 percent in their 30s, 17 percent in their 40s and 8 percent over 40. According to the survey, it looks like ad sellers wish they had more creative jobs, tend to keep the same drinking pace as clients and are frustrated with agencies. See our hand-drawn graphic illustrating the findings.
