20% of marketers have created an actionable 'single customer view'

The single customer view (SCV) is one of marketing's hot potatoes.

Is it really feasible? Well, according to our latest Quarterly Intelligence Briefing: The Pursuit of Data-Driven Maturity (in association with Adobe), 20% of marketers have in fact achieved an actionable SCV.

The survey has thrown up plenty of fascinating data - let's take a look at a little bit of it.

Two-thirds of Australian marketers say current display ads model is broken

We often discuss the state of display ads on this blog, sadly it is not always in the most positive light, and it seems the majority of marketers agree with us. But there is hope for a better approach.

Sixty-six percent of brand marketers and media buyers in Australia surveyed in our recent People-Based Advertising report either agree or strongly agree that the current model for display advertising is broken, and only 12% disagree that it is.

What are first-, second- and third-party data?

I’m not trying to teach anyone how to suck eggs here. Perish the thought.

But let’s face it: some of you probably just smile and nod when somebody starts going on about the merits of ‘second-party data’. 

Sure, everyone knows what these terms mean in principle, but in this post I’m going to break down three key types of data – first-party, second-party and third-party – and explain what they all mean, where the different data sets come from and the pros and cons of each.

In a recent Econsultancy report, survey respondents revealed that the CMO is spending more than the CIO in almost a third (32%) of companies in Australia and New Zealand.

Why marketers must move from data to insight to action

More data is not necessarily a good thing.

It needs to be actionable, providing marketers with insight. If it's not, then perhaps now is the time to invest in new technology.

Video ads: if you’re demanding attention you’re doing it wrong

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.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): what we know & what's coming next

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.

The five-point plan for data privacy & business

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.

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.

14 reasons you really shouldn't ignore DuckDuckGo

Another startup with a silly name? Sounds like something I’d like to get my teeth into. 

For the uninitiated among you (where have you been?), DuckDuckGo (DDG) is a private search engine that has seen exponential growth since its inception a few years ago. 

So why should you care?

Data visualization: 14 jaw-dropping examples

Sounds like a buzzword, but actually makes a lot of sense. Data visualization is the art of presenting often complex datasets in a visually engaging way. 


The hope is that presenting data in this way will make it more engaging and easier to understand, so it’s particularly helpful in terms of speaking to clients or internal stakeholders.  

With this in mind, I’ve brought together 14 of my favourite data visualization examples from across the web.

Start Me Up! People.io allows people to monetize their personal data

Despite consumers becoming more comfortable inputting data online over the past decade, 2015 saw mounting pressure on crappy ad formats, data resellers and unsolicited communication.

It's in this context that people.io launches today, a platform that allows consumers to benefit from giving away their personal data.

We caught up with the team...
