Attention spans are evolving, and by that I mean they’re shrinking.
Halfway through writing that sentence my phone dinged and I saw a tweet pop up that looked quite interesting.
15 minutes of internet rabbit hole-diving later and I remembered I was supposed to be writing a sentence.
I’m not alone in this, and one of the talks at our Creative Programmatic event last week that particularly interested me was from Innovid’s Tal Chalozin, who was there to discuss how video advertisers can cater for the modern-day online attention span.
It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday, when we celebrate and show our appreciation for the women who brought us kicking and screaming into this world.
I’m in a sharing mood, so I’m going to open up to you and tell you the single most powerful piece of advice my mother ever gave me. I remember it word for word.
She said: “Son, whatever you do in life, wherever you go, don’t ever let anyone stop you reading the weekly Econsultancy digital marketing stats round-up.”
Some people seem slightly alarmed by the rise of automation in marketing.
Is it the first step towards all of us being replaced by robots that will eventually enslave humankind and force us to oil their joints until the end of time?
While that might have been a lame attempt at a joke, it is actually very relevant to the Creative Programmatic event I attended yesterday, which was all about how this largely automated channel needn’t spell the end of human creativity in marketing.
It was February last month, which meant Valentine’s Day and Super Bowl campaigns were high on the agenda for brands.
I’ll be covering both those topics in this month’s social round-up, along with plenty of exciting news from the likes of Facebook and Twitter, and House of Fraser’s odd decision to go completely off-brand and talk only in emojis.
Another month has passed, and brands are just about starting to panic about those Q1 results.
But fear not, for today I bring you the best of Instagram video – some light-hearted digital marketing fun to take your mind off the daily grind.
Some of the ads on this list might surprise you. What won’t surprise you is the British public’s unwavering ability to be offended by the innocuous, but let’s not get into all that.
The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) recently released its list of the 10 most complained-about ad campaigns in 2015, and while I find some of the inclusions quite surprising, I thought marketers could perhaps learn a thing or two from this list.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – an EU-wide overhaul of consumer data laws aimed at strengthening the protection of people’s data privacy – was announced at the tail end of 2015.
The new laws won’t be finalised until later this year, and won’t take effect for another two years after that.
But in a talk I attended at Data Protection 2016 on Friday, two leading government figures did their best to tell the audience what to expect and explain why the reform is happening.
On Friday I attended a talk at Data Protection 2016 that was all about – you guessed it – data, but specifically how businesses can continue to thrive in the ever-evolving data economy.
The talk from Ctrl-Shift CEO Liz Brandt covered five key action points that business and government need to tackle together in order to avert a future crisis.
I’m going to cover them in detail in this post.
Programmatic advertising goes far beyond data and automation.
Our Creative Programmatic event is coming up on 2 March and we caught up with two of the speakers at the event, O2’s Head of Digital Excellence, Nick Adams, and TUI’s Head of Media, Sammy Austin.
Between them they discussed some of the biggest emerging trends and challenges in programmatic, and offered their opinions and advice on where creativity fits within this channel.
Aristotle Onassis once said, ‘It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the weekly Econsultancy digital marketing stats round-up.’
So turn up that screen brightness, put your glasses back on and let’s do this thing.
Just when you think things can’t get any worse for the publishing industry, somebody goes and hammers another nail in its coffin.
Well, it’s not quite as dramatic as that. But recent news from mobile network provider Three certainly got the ad industry talking over the weekend.
The network has announced that it will roll out ad blocking technology on its network after initially trialling it in Italy.
If you’re not already aware of the Shield 5 series on Instagram, go and watch it now.
To me it is a perfect example of just how ridiculously far we’ve come with social media since MySpace first became the next big thing all those years ago.
Not only that, but if people react positively to it I think we could see much more of this type of content on Instagram, and no doubt brands will want to get involved with their own series.
