Will Facebook's new Comment ad be the ad that keeps giving?

With 750m users and growing, Facebook is one of the most attractive platforms for brand advertisers to reach consumers.

But there's a problem: while it may be capturing more and more dollars from major brand advertisers, the efficacy of advertising on Facebook is still questionable.

If Facebook isn't able to change that, it will obviously face challenges long-term.

Digital agencies winning more retainers: report

When it comes to how agencies are compensated, digital shops haven't always been treated like traditional shops. Retainers and performance incentives? Maybe, but project fees have been far more common.

That may be changing according to a study conducted by the Association of National Advertisers (ANA), which found that the number of digital agencies being compensated with a combination of  project fees and retainers jumped to two-thirds last year, up from just 37% in 2009.

Also on the increase: performance bonuses. Nearly quarter of those surveyed changed these last year, and nearly 30% plan to do this year.

Ignore social media, acquire more clients?

Is social media important? Even though there are still some who believe it isn't, today few dispute that it has at least some value.

Instead, the debate has largely shifted to another question: how is social media best applied to deliver meaningful results for businesses?

When it comes to that question, there is no shortage of consultants and firms offering to help companies find the answer.

Companies increase outsourcing for SEO, PPC and social media: survey

SEO, paid search and social media: for obvious reasons, it's difficult, if not downright impossible, for companies to thrive online without them.

Given their importance, one might expect that a growing number of companies would be eager to bring their SEO, PPC and social media activities in house, but according to SEMPO and Econsultancy's State of Search Marketing Report 2011, just the opposite is happening.

Groupon: when in doubt, blame your agency!

Groupon may be one of the fastest-growing consumer internet companies ever, but when it came to introducing itself to consumers on television, it learned a harsh lesson: developing a successful television ad campaign can sometimes be more difficult than building a wildly-successful business.

After its Crispin Porter + Bogusky Super Bowl ads flopped, Groupon faced a consumer backlash and industry criticism from those who wondered how a company that is doing so well could go so wrong on the biggest advertising stage in the universe.

Mandatory licensing for ad professionals: worst idea ever?

Why your social media strategy shouldn’t be owned by a PR or ad agency

There is some talk over at NMA about the battle for control of social media. In one corner we have the PR agencies, and in the other there are ad agencies.

Personally I can’t see any value in allowing either of these types of agencies to develop and manage your social media strategy. Or any other agencies for that matter, even those dedicated to social media.

Controversial? I should hope not…

Economy boosts television, hurts digital: report

Television has been called many things, and in the past several years, one of those things is 'dead'. But when it comes to advertising, television is still alive and kicking, and according to a new survey from media management software vendor STRATA, it's television advertising, not digital advertising, that will benefit most from economic recovery.

Of the major advertising firms polled as part of STRATA's 4th Quarter Agency Survey, the greatest percentage (44%) said that their clients were focused most on television, a 24% rise over the previous quarter. Digital trailed significantly, with 21.1% reporting the internet to be their clients' medium of choice.
