Now, What’s My ROAS Across Media Platforms?,” conducted in conjunction with The Advertising Research Foundation, CBS, Meredith Corp. and Sequent Partners, among others, are:
*  Linear TV advertising drives the highest incremental sales per exposed household at 33 cents. This is followed by magazine, digital video and mobile, which are separated by only three cents.
*  Mobile drives the highest incremental sales per thousand impressions, at $26.52. Digital video follows at $23.48 and linear TV at $20.56.
*  Category matters. Expensive, frequently purchased items, such as baby and pet products, have a higher ROAS than items from less expensive categories like food and beverage.
