London Native advertising

Why London is poised to lead the way with native advertising

With native advertising the buzz phrase among marketers for 2014, London is poised to lead the way in innovation in what is one of the most creative digital ad formats to emerge in recent years. 

In November AirBnB co-founder Nathan Blecharczyk claimed that London was ‘stuck in a Silicon Valley Roundabout’ and held back by its failure to produce a ‘billion dollar’ online business. 

Many in London found the comments annoying. Phil Cooper, a digital veteran who launched the UK’s first video ad network and was until last year European MD of Brightroll, was one of them. 

Cooper, who launched his latest digital venture six months ago, London based accommodation platform Kippsy.com, a competitor of AirBnB in the London market, believes that what London does best is innovation; taking an established model, technology or platform and turning it on its head.

Scaling Native Advertising - 2014

How do you scale native advertising?

Native advertising is set to grow phenomenally in 2014. 

The New York Times among many others has now embraced native ad formats. This has led an even bigger clamour among media analysts to predict big things for native this year. 

J.P. Morgan stated last week in its ‘Nothing But Net’ report that “We believe native ads are quickly becoming the de facto ad format on mobile and increasingly moving into desktop”. 

There is still a lot of confusion among marketers and publishers about what native actually is.  Many people have tried to define it and enlighten us all on what native advertising is.

Penguin 2.0: How to become an online authority

The SEO world is abuzz following the release of Penguin 2.0, though there have been several updates to the algorithm since it launched in April 2012.

The release took place on 22 May, 2013 with additional changes and tweaks likely to take place over the summer months. You can watch the video for yourself below, but, as well as investing in quality content, one of the key phrases that was of considerable interest was this from Matt Cutts: 

We are trying to detect when someone is an authority in a specific space and trying to make those authorities rank higher.

So the question that marketers need to ask themselves is ‘How do you create an Authority brand online?’ It’s time online marketers replaced this question over their traditional ‘how do I get to the top of Google?’

Create an authority website, full of interesting content that your target customers want to read and share and you will be rewarded by Google. But not just by Google, but by your customers too.
