If Adverts Told the Truth, What Would They Look Like?

Posted by Adam Parikh on Apr 24, 2018 9:03:00 AM

We all say that "honesty is the best policy" - but even that's a little white lie. Human beings can only handle the truth in small doses. In other words, we like honesty when it makes us feel good. Did that dress really make her look fat? Did he really do a good job with that DIY (do it yourself) project?

If we were totally honest with ourselves, we'd admit that we love a lie from time to time - particularly those lies that give us an excuse to do what we want to do, say what we want to say, and wear what we want to wear. Of course, when it comes to lying - marketers and advertising experts are some of the biggest fibbers of them all.

Marketing blurs the lines between honesty and truth in a truly artistic way. The best marketers know that if they want to get the sale, they need to give their prospects a hint of truth, sweetened by an entire butt-load of delicious, sugary lies.

Benefits Of Display Advertising

Display advertisingis another one of the most common forms of online marketing. This is also referred to sometimes as pay-per-impression advertising. This type of marketing utilizes banner ads that are generated on specific websites to drive traffic to your website. Unlike search engine marketing, you'll usually see display advertising on specific sites--not necessarily search engine results.

Cost: The cost of display advertising often depends on the website where you'd like to advertise. Sometimes publications broker these deals, and sometimes third-party affiliate networks can broker them. The higher the readership, the higher the cost.

How To Create Effective Programmatic Audio Advertising For Your Campaigns

Posted by Tim Nichols on Apr 4, 2018 9:03:00 AM

It doesn't matter what kind of customers you're trying to speak to, what culture they come from, or how old they are, audio will always demand attention. Whether it's music on the radio or the sound of a television playing in the distance, you'd be surprised just how much information comes from the things you hear.

Audio advertisements can potentially rival the television ad in terms of reach and engagement according to research conducted by RAJAR. In fact, around 3.7 million adults currently listen to podcasts on a regular basis - which is almost 7% of the adult population of the world. What's more, in the United States, radio is currently ahead of all other platforms in terms of weekly reach - with 93% of the population between the ages of 12 and 54 tuning in.

While video and text-based content will always be important for the marketing world, it's worth thinking about how you can get involved with the potential of programmatic audio advertising.

What Is Programmatic Audio Advertising?

Posted by Tim Nichols on Jul 20, 2017 9:03:00 AM

Before we get into the details of programmatic audio advertising, what exactly isprogrammatic advertising itself? Put simply, programmatic advertising isa way of buying digital ad space via software - as opposed to the traditional process ofhuman negotiation.

Using machines to buy ads is actually a really efficient way of buying advertising space, because both buyers and salespeople can be expensive and unreliable in the real world. With the use of machines the whole process is slicker and smoother than buying through RFP (Request for Proposal).

The benefits of programmatic advertising areincreasingly relevant in today’s content-saturated digital world. Marketers need their adsto be targeted, personalized and engaging whenever and however they’re reaching out to consumers; and although a great deal of this targeting takes place via the online tools we have at our fingertips, programmatic advertising takes it to another level.

Is Programmatic Native Advertising The Answer?

Posted by Tim Nichols on Jan 3, 2017 9:46:42 AM

There are already a range of companies such as the New York Times, and Grupo expansion who are unlocking new mobile experiences to help advertisers offer better user experiences to their customers across different screens.
