report looks at the top trends of the year in marketing, predicts the future
trends to watch, and provides compelling strategies, tactics, and
recommendations for digital advertisers. In addition to laying out the outline for the book and
painting the larger vision for its contents, Terri authored the Top Trends to
Watch, which covered trends in social marketing, ad exchanges, mobile, and video. Terri also
had the foresight to predict that “TV will go social in 2009” as it faces
unprecedented fragmentation and revenue challenges. In addition to her article
called “The Digitalization of TV,” she aggregates points of view from experts like

Mom” study, which examines the role of digital technologies and social networks

significant shifts in moms’ media consumption patterns in the last two years, how
they are using different media channels including social media, mobile, gaming,
and video, and which channels are the most important at different stages across
12 vertical categories.
The Razorfish Digital Mom Report was covered widely in the press and has been
referred to as the seminal, go-to report for understanding how moms interact in the
digital space. It was the first report of its kind and was also inspiration for
a two-day series on NBC’s Today show in March 2009, in which Terri was featured.
Walter is also chair of the Digital Media Council at the Advertising Research
Foundation, where she is moving the needle on educating marketers and
researchers on the topics around the measurement of emerging media like mobile,
video and digital out of home. She has also just assumed the position of Chair of
the Mobile Marketing Committee at the Association of American Advertising
Agencies (AAAAs), which is a tribute to her active speaking, writing and educating
on best practices in mobile marketing.
In her role at Razorfish, Walter is constantly moving the company into new
directions. She is the right hand to the Chief Strategy Officer and has made
significant impact in helping Razorfish grow its position as one of the most
innovative advertising agencies in the digital space.
