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.

Macro factors

Are companies burying their heads in the sand about digital?

Our Modern Marketing Manifesto makes the bold declaration that social media are changing business culture with the onus now on marketers to help create businesses that ‘have social in their DNA’.  

For many organisations, attitudes within the boardroom towards social are a microcosm for ‘digital’ more broadly. An appetite for embracing social is often indicative of a C-suite understanding that changing consumer behaviour necessitates a focus on digital. 

As Econsultancy CEO Ashley Friedlein explains in this post, digital stands for a focus on the customer experience, irrespective of channel, and a move towards a digital culture.

The agile innovation imperative: agile grows up

Just about every marketer in every company wants to be more agile and more innovative.

The accelerated rate of change in markets, technology development and associated consumer behaviours is challenging every business to reinvent how they originate, commercialise and scale ideas.

In reaction to the growing demand for insight into how organisations are responding to this challenge, Econsultancy has conducted research into how companies are deploying agile thinking, processes and techniques in the service of continuous innovation and the rapid development of new products and services.

The result, our new Digital Transformation: Agility and Innovation Best Practice Guide, sheds new light on what is perhaps nothing less than a watershed moment.  

It looks at how companies are beginning to more broadly adopt agile principles beyond real-time marketing and agile development processes within technology teams, and starting to transform the fundamental way in which they work.

How Channel 4's remit for innovation impacts its risk-taking ad campaigns

'Punch' is the part of the Festival of Marketing that celebrates creativity, and few organisations can be said to be as creative as Channel 4.

In fact it’s within the broadcaster’s official remit to be innovative and distinctive while also developing new talent.

C4 is state owned, but it doesn’t receive any taxpayer’s money and remains a not-for-profit organisation. Therefore all of its revenue is ploughed back into making new programmes.

And at Punch this afternoon C4’s chief marketing and communications officer Dan Brooke gave a peak under the hood of some of its recent marketing campaigns, which are also geared towards fulfilling its innovative and risk-taking mantra.

Digital transformation: why losing control is the future

Last week I was lucky enough to attend our Digital Transformation: Innovation and Agility Breakfast Briefing, chewing the fat (and some very tasty sausages) with various digital leaders about the actual business implications of digital transformation

The conversation threw a fascinating light on the organisational challenges businesses are facing. While familiar concerns about technology were mentioned, the group was far more focussed on the day-to-day reality of implementation, looking at people and processes.

Here I’ve collated some of the major points.

Last month we hosted our Future of Digital Marketing (FODM) conference in London, and had a chance to ask some of our speakers which obstacles businesses faced, and how they might overcome them.

Harnessing disruptive innovation

How to harness disruptive innovation as a modern marketer

The Modern Marketing Manifesto challenges marketers to be creative and innovative. But how do we as marketers do this.

David Sealey who is completing his MBA disertation on Disruptive Innovation in Retail Markets discusses how marketers can innovate.

The Modern Marketing Manifesto is absolutely spot on. One of the challenges it sets for marketers is to design services and products with innovation and creativity.

I believe that all of us have the imagination to be both creative and innovative within out industry. You don't need to be able to draw to be creative, and you don't need to have the word innovation in your job title to be an innovator.
