Google skips past general mobile ads, goes directly to smartphones

If there were any doubts about the growing potential of the smartphone ad market, Google would like to put them to rest. The search giant announced plans this week to start serving richer media ads to smartphones.

By focusing on more more real estate grabbing ads for HTML-enabled phones instead of creating mobiles ads that will be uniform across mobile platforms, Google is betting on the future of smartphones and trying to establish its dominance over the mobile ad market. For a company trying to make a play for the display ad market, this could help it along the way.

Autorader.co.uk is the most popular motoring website in the UK, claiming 10m unique visitors per month. It also has a mobile version, which it relaunched last year.

Yesterday our CEO Ashley Friedlein finally did the honourable thing and bought an iPhone. Already his world has measurably improved.

We asked our Twitter followers to suggest the apps that he should download. In particular we wanted ideas on apps relating to productivity, workflow, as well as the internet industry more broadly. Some are more boss-like than others, but they're all great apps.

Here’s what you (and I) came up with. Images link to the iTunes Store, should you wish to download them. 


iPhone app review: Edinburgh Festivals Guide

Create and use your personal QR code in five minutes

QR codes are smart barcodes that have a lot of potential to bridge the gap between online and offline marketing.

In a nut, here’s how it works:

  1. You create a code (an image).
  2. Someone takes a picture of it on a smartphone. 
  3. The code is deciphered via a QR reader. 
  4. It becomes a link to provide the viewer with information. 

In a moment I’ll show you how to set one up...

However, when faced with this kind of negative environment, thinking up imaginative ways to engage with users through existing channels can sometimes become a bit stale. 

Here, I’ve compiled a few different examples of relatively recent online campaigns that caught my attention through their resourcefulness and that follow six identifiable 'I's'.
