Instagram just took advantage of Amazon’s biggest weakness

Posted in Apps, Consumers, interactive advertising, internet, online marketing, Retail, social media, Uncategorized, world wide web with tags , , , , on March 20, 2019 by gadler

Instagram took a big step on Tuesday in its evolution into an online shopping destination, and for once, Amazon finds itself looking up from a position of weakness.

Instagram announced that users of the photo-sharing app will for the first time be able to start making purchases of some products directly within the app, capping off the social network’s multi-year flirtation with becoming a real player in online shopping. Big-name retailers like Nike and Zara, as well as younger brands like Outdoor Voices and Warby Parker, are among the 20-plus companies participating in the initial rollout.

Instagram has already proven to be a platform — thanks in large part to its visual nature — where the best consumer brands can do what they do best: get new people to discover their products and inspire shoppers to covet their wares.

Supreme Court ruling opens up legal sports betting | CMO Strategy – Ad Age

Posted in baseball, football, golf, internet, NCAA, sports, world wide web, www with tags , , , , , , , on May 15, 2018 by gadler

The U.S. Supreme Court struck down the federal law that bars gambling on individual sporting events in most of the country, in a ruling likely to unleash a race among the states to attract billions of dollars in legal wagers.

Ruling in a New Jersey case, the court said the 1992 law unconstitutionally forced states to maintain laws that ban gambling. Nevada is the only state where single-game wagering is now legal.

Sports gambling could begin in a matter of weeks in casinos and racetracks in New Jersey, which instigated the legal fight by repealing its gambling prohibition. Mississippi, Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware and West Virginia could follow soon, and the number of states might reach double digits by the end of the year.
