AdExchanger: News and Views on Data-Driven Digital Advertising

It’s been nearly a year since ad sales workflow systems provider Mediaocean was given the regulatory green lightto form the merger of Mediabank and Donovan Data Systems. While Mediaocean picked up the mantle of both entities’ attempts to bring online media buying methods to traditional TV, Mediaocean CEO Bill Wise tellsAdExchanger that the company is preparing to fully rollout its rebuilt system, starting with a display ad sales tool dubbed Prisma and then circling back around to include all media buying.

AdExchanger: How has Mediaocean’s strategy evolved since the merger?

BILL WISE: When we first announced the merger back in September of 2011, we were very grand about discussing our strategy – we wanted to be “the app store for advertising,” taking on Google, and as the only alternative in terms of ad tech plumbing.

Then, what you saw was us being quiet for the last eight or nine months. That’s been on purpose, because we had a lot of integration work to do. We completely reorganized the business, completely realigned our resources, created three separate divisions within the company, and we internally rebranded all of our products.

In the next couple of weeks we’re going to actually launch the new brands externally. We had five different digital technologies between DDS and Mediabank. We’re completing the entire rewrite and integration of all of those five products into one new digital product, starting with display advertising, called Prisma.

Love at first click | ioninteractive.com


First impressions matter.

For a large number of prospects in the digital world, their first impression of you is what happens when they click on one of your ads. Maybe it was a display ad that caught their eye. Maybe it was a search ad that appeared on a Google results page for a topic they were researching. Maybe it was a sponsored link in Twitter that aligned with their social interests.

For a brief, magical moment in a ridiculously noisy and crowded marketplace, you’ve caught their interest.

That’s a heroic accomplishment, and one that you no doubt paid handsomely to achieve. A recent IDC report on high-tech marketing budgets shows marketers allocating 23.6% of their digital spend on display ads and 15.9% on search ads. That’s a lot of money being spent to win that moment of attention.

But if someone clicks on your ad — another brief but crucial victory! — how do you capitalize on that moment that you’ve invested so much to win?

The baseline is giving them what you promised in that ad. It’s a complete fail if you don’t.

(Surprisingly, there are still a large number of companies advertising on the web that don’t cross that very low bar. Don’t take my word for it. Do a Google search on something of commercial intent, read the ads, and click through to their destinations. How many fulfill their promise? How many fail? For most categories, it’s a sorry ratio of broken promises.)

[G] What does the future of display advertising look like?

What does the future of display advertising look like?

This afternoon, we gave a keynote address at the Interactive Advertising Bureau’s MIXX Conference in New York, entitled “Display 2015: Smart and Sexy.”

As you know by now, we’re investing significantly to make display advertising better for users, advertisers and publishers. Display advertising really is at the heart of what we’re doing at Google these days. 99 percent of our top 1,000 clients are now running campaigns on the Google Display Network. And last year, they increased their spending on display advertising by over 75 percent.

Today, we explained why we think display advertising is about to go through the biggest and most important revolution in its history. We made seven predictions about where display advertising will be in 2015:

* 50 percent of ad campaigns will include video ads bought on a cost-per-view basis (that means that the user will choose whether to watch the ad or not, and the advertiser will only pay if the user watches). That’s up from very little today.
* Today, advertisers are starting to deliver ads that are tailored to particular audiences. Many are using real-time bidding technology, so that they can bid on the ad space that they think is most valuable. In 2015, 50 percent of these ads will be bought using this real-time technology.
* With smartphone growth skyrocketing, mobile is going be the number one screen through which users engage with advertisers’ digital brands.
* Today, the “click” is the most important way that advertisers measure their display ad campaigns, but it’s not always the best measure—especially if an ad campaign is designed to boost things like brand awareness or recall. With new measurement technologies emerging, in five years, there will be five metrics that advertisers commonly regard as more important than the click.
* Just like most news articles on the web today can be commented on, shared, discussed, subscribed to and recommended, in 2015, 75 percent of ads on the web will be “social” in nature—across dozens of formats, sites and social communities.
* Rich media formats work. They enable great creativity and interaction between users and advertisers, but today they only represent about 6 percent of total display ad impressions. That will increase to 50 percent, for brand-building ad campaigns.
* All the investments that are making display advertising smarter and sexier will help publishers increase their revenues. Display advertising is going to grow to a $50 billion industry in five years.

Dynamic Ads Need Dynamic Landing Pages

By Brian Massey, ClickZ, Mar 3, 2010

You stand on a small platform called a “board,” high above the big top floor. A swinging bar – a trapeze – swings in front of you, away and then toward you. Your task is to dive into open space, grab the bar, and swing out away from your little perch.

At the apex of your swing, you are going to let go. Leer más “Dynamic Ads Need Dynamic Landing Pages”
