Get with the programmatic: why brands need to understand the new advertising landscape

Econsultancy and Marketing Week have launched a conference all about programmatic advertising.

NB: The next installment of ‘Get with the programmatic’ will take place on 29 September in London.

Let’s set the tone by discussing why brands must understand this technology (obvious spoiler alert: to be successful when purchasing ad inventory).

But let’s also have a look at some of the terminology and the dynamics between publishers, advertisers, ad networks, tech platforms and agencies.

Facebook Atlas: what you need to know

Here's a brief introduction to Atlas by Facebook, the social network's new ad network of sorts.

Facebook was already selling ads in other apps via its Audience Network, which has been in beta since April 2014.

This Audience Network allows advertisers to promote their apps in other apps using banner, interstitial or native units and all the targeting data Facebook can stump up.

But now, with Atlas, Facebook is extending this to websites, too. All that Facebook data will be used to sell ads outside of the network and these will be seen by Facebook users. The idea is that this data will increase the effectiveness of ads by allowing greater tracking of users.

Why does everyone have a beef with Facebook?

Sorry for using the word beef. 

Lots of people had a beef with Google for years and many still do. The company continued to make money for its advertisers. SEOs had a begrudging respect for the platform that was their entire world. It was sort of a joke to anyone looking in from outside. 

Although it doesn’t provide advertisers such a neat way to capitalise on intent, I get the feeling that Facebook is incredibly good value for reaching audiences.

That’s not based on fact, merely because I know nothing guarantees a backlash like wild success. QED.

The Sun on customer service and life behind the paywall

The Sun ducked behind a paywall in August 2013, so now feels like a good time to find out how it's all been going at Sun+

Beverley Mcintyre is Director of Member Services and Support at News UK. I was glad to catch up with her about customer service behind the paywall, as well as some other interesting aspects of the business, namely advertising and changes to the organisation as a whole.

For more on publishing, check out the Econsultancy Native Advertising report or these posts on publishing.

What do search volumes reveal about trends in marketing and ecommerce?

At the beginning of 2014, Ashley Friedlein rounded up some trends and predictions for the year in digital marketing and ecommerce.

I thought I’d dip back in and take a look at some of the most incipient trends with some simple Google searches.

Do click through to the searches and see what else you can dig up.

The native advertising chart of relevancy and transparency

Think of a pair of axes, one showing relevance and the other transparency.

Where would various publishers’ content be plotted on this chart?

Part of the fascination with native advertising comes from the interplay of these two factors.

How big ticket B2B companies use search marketing

Despite all the research and writing on the B2B buyer’s journey, quite a lot of B2B marketers still believe that “my buyers aren’t looking for us in search.”

Their assumption is that the customer in a position to buy a six- or seven-figure (or larger) piece of equipment or service is going to be deeply experienced and already know who the main providers are, and that’s who they're going to request bids from. The evidence suggests otherwise.

How do we use the internet and mobile devices in 2014?

Ofcom today published The Communications Market Report 2014 in the UK.

There are lots of interesting stats within, across telecoms, audio-visual industries, post and of course the internet.

No doubt we'll be covering the report fairly heavily, but I thought I'd start by rounding up the bits that caught my eye.

How is device use changing? How are people accessing media? How much are advertisers spending and on what?

The beginner's glossary of programmatic advertising

Programmatic advertising is complicated. There's no doubt about that.

This complexity explains why there is quite a lot of terminology involved, but it can seem quite opaque to the newbie.

Luckily, Econsultancy has a wonderful and thorough discussion and explanation of programmatic - Programmatic Marketing: Beyond RTB.

As a taster, I thought I'd throw some important terms into a glossary. It's just the basics, but I hope it helps.
