Posted in Campaigns, Consumers, Google, Research with tags , , , , , on October 2, 2018 by gadler

Marketing has always been about driving growth. And the formula for how to drive growth in today’s market has changed.

As marketers, we were taught to master the funnel — a linear customer journey from awareness to consideration to purchase. And using mass media, the key levers to drive growth were reach and frequency. We used demographics to approximate user intent and inform our targeting and creative.

But this model no longer applies to today’s customer journeys. In the last six months, Google looked at thousands of users’ clickstream data from a third-party opt-in panel.

How to drive business outcomes by anticipating consumer intent

Posted in advertising, Campaigns, Google, interactive advertising with tags , , , , , , , on September 2, 2018 by gadler

Segmentation will never be perfect. But when a competitor understands segments by value, they’ll spend to reach — and win — the best customers.

That’s why it’s important to understand a customer’s overall value. Doing so can help inform bidding and build audiences.

What Is GDPR?

GDPR is the General Data Protection Regulation, which is coming from the EU and associated countries. Its purpose is to finally make good on a legal question from several years ago about how data is used and whether individuals own the data that they create by interacting with websites online.

The courts ruled that individuals are the owners of their data, not the corporations (or websites) that collect the data. Therefore, it must be deleted on a regular basis so that customers don’t have to constantly contact websites they may have visited and ask them to delete their data.

Who should delete that customer data? Good question.

Find out who should delete the customer data, and more info, at this Search Engine Journal article.

Can Augmented Reality Breathe New Life Into Banner Ads?

The very first banner ad on the Internet—for AT&T on Wired in 1994—had a click-through rate (CTR) of 44 percent. Now that the novelty has worn off, that rate is more like 0.05 percent.

Digital advertising viewability – a lot of gray area

“Perfect viewability should be your goal, right? Not necessarily, according to new research that highlights the fact that viewability isn’t quite that simple.

According to new research by programmatic company Goodway Group, seeing ads that are measured as viewable results in people converting at an 8 to 9 percent more. That sounds fairly obvious; of course people are more impacted by ads they can actually see. But the real finding of the Applying Viewability Intelligently for Measurably Improved Performance study, which was released this morning, is that viewability isn’t that black and white.”
