In 2015, many marketers have been thinking about how display advertising now fits into the marketing mix.
With so many other options available and with how confusing the display landscape has become with programmatic ad buying, it's not surprising that many people are now wondering just what their display strategy should be.
Programmatic advertising continued to creep into the generalist marketer's consciousness in 2015.
If you're interested, we recently wrote up a handy digest of some of 2015's programmatic trends.
But enough of looking backwards, let's look in the crystal ball and ask 'What's in store for 2016?'
Boy oh boy, 2015 was a big year for advertising debate.
To try and bring some closure to a year of fervid discussion on the Econsultancy blog, we asked two experts on performance marketing to give us their view on programmatic in 2015.
I’ve just realised there will only be two or three more of these digital marketing stats round-ups before Christmas.
No doubt your office is already filled to the brim with forced enjoyment and every last ounce of festive fun has been beaten out of your heart before the first week of December has finished.
I was reading an excellent article about the slow uptake of iBeacons when I became almost lucid, and started to see digital as the CFO sees it.
The power of digital technology can blind marketers to the simple question of 'will the customer use it?'
Too often, marketing technology is interruptive, based on providing value for the business but wish-washy engagement for the customer.
The debate around display advertising is currently rather polarised.
As some eschew standard display and forge ahead selling super-expensive native advertising, others continue at scale through programmatic, hoping the slide in CPM will cease.
But can publishers realistically make it to a middle ground, one of powerful display advertising based on greater relevance and intent?
On 30th November 2015 The Sun paywall will come crumbling down.
It's fairly obvious why Rebekah Brooks made the decision; publishers are nothing without the reach of social media and this U-turn perhaps proves that subscription models need to be flexible, balanced carefully with (increasingly native) advertising revenue.
Pageviews are the oxygen that keeps every revenue flame burning. But rather than me harping on about advertising and social media, I thought I'd tell the story of The Sun paywall in statistics alone. Here we go...
First-party data could prove to be the future of online display advertising, according to our new report Digital Publishing: Increasing Advertiser Value Through Data and Identity.
Published in partnership with Signal, the report reveals the opportunities for publishers in the troubled digital advertising world.
The display advertising economy is in trouble, and digital publishers are feeling it. Whether it’s the rise of ad blockers, emerging news-delivery platforms, commoditized ad inventory or diminishing CPMs, there are plenty of challenges facing the industry.
Our new report, Digital Publishing: Increasing Advertiser Value Through Data and Identity, found that display ad revenue is either stagnant or shrinking for 40% of digital publishers.
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.
As we all know by now, retargeting has given itself a bit of a reputation, and not the good kind.
However that doesn't mean it shouldn't be used. I wanted to use this post to try and find out the right way to go about retargeting customers through online display ads, based largely on my own experience as a consumer.
Despite the significant innovations that have taken place in online ads in the past several years, advertisers still largely rely on metrics like CPM and CPC to quantify their digital ad spend.
To a large extent, the use of these metrics makes sense. They are simple and for many channels, are reasonably meaningful. But that doesn't mean that there's no room for innovation.
