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.
Ad fraud is a topic that cannot be ignored.
At Econsultancy conferences, any discussion of programmatic media comes with the obligatory debate about building transparency into an ecosystem where the advertiser so often lacks control.
I thought I'd write a short post simply stating the scale of the problem with three facts.
The ad blocking debate continues to rage on, showing no signs of slowing. A tsunami of mixed opinions and bad misunderstandings.
The latest high-profile figure to publicly grab the wrong end of the stick entirely is culture secretary John Whittingdale, who last week referred to ad blocking as “a modern day protection racket” in which publishers have to pay to appear on a whitelist.
The Independent recently announced that it will be closing its print newspaper titles and putting all efforts into digital.
It spun the move as a positive, proudly declaring that it is the first newspaper to go digital-only, but anyone who has followed Mark Ritson’s posts about this publication will know the move was likely an unavoidable decision.
I applaud The Independent’s bravery in publicly admitting defeat in the print market, but if it thinks it’s going to succeed with its site in its current state it’s dreaming. Drastic changes are needed.
‘Every accomplishment starts with the decision to read the weekly Econsultancy digital marketing stats round-up,’ is probably my favourite quote of all time.
It should be yours, too, if you want to be the next Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg.
This week we’ve got some delightful digital marketing stats for you, from content marketing salaries to the rise of video, to poor ad viewability, shunned smartwatches, Six Nations rugby and much more.
But in order to add some depth to our coverage of how display is changing and what you need to do to use it more effectively, it's helpful to look at some recent case studies.
The great Charles Dickens once said, “I will honour the Econsultancy weekly digital marketing stats round-up in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”
In all fairness, he may or may not have been talking about Christmas. But I’m no historian, just a bringer of brilliant stats.
Black Friday is less than half a week away, which means it’s almost time to forget about the woes of the world for one day and get lost in some good-old-fashioned consumerist escapism.
In light of this being the UK’s biggest 24 hours for ecommerce and what with us being a digital marketing blog, we thought we’d better bring you some of the best Black Friday stats we’ve seen so far.
The Economist’s Iain Noakes, whose job title – Global Digital Acquisition Journey and Performance Director – clearly wouldn’t fit on a conventional business card, discussed how he helped inject tech into a 172-year-old magazine.
It’s the second day of our Festival of Marketing event, and after nursing our hangovers this morning we’re all set to see what’s on offer.
The first talk I attended today, on the Social stage, was from Kenyatte Nelson, Group Marketing Director at Shop Direct, in which he discussed how social media ads can have a huge business impact.
Oh publishers, when will you learn?
Of course you need revenue (after all you wouldn’t exist without it). But if you don’t start getting the balance right between ad revenue and user experience you’re going to die a slow and painful death.
Twitter, LinkedIn and Yelp saw shares of their stock take big tumbles last week.
The week prior, Facebook reported earnings that fell short of analyst expectations for revenue.
Is social media hitting a speed bump, and if so, should marketers be alarmed?
