The face of marketing has changed significantly in the past few decades and even more so in the past few years. People are more informed when making purchases, thanks to the overwhelming availability of information online for virtually all products, companies, and people. Now, followers are your potential customers. As a result, digital marketing has become the preferred marketing strategy for many companies that exist today. Even so, not all companies have a solid marketing strategy from which they work. While many companies are successfully trucking along without any clear digital marketing strategy, they are not necessarily harnessing the full power of this online trend. If you are serious about making gains with your company or brand, then you must create a clear, actionable digital marketing strategy.

Google purges 600 Android apps for “disruptive” pop-up ads

Article | February 24, 2020

You know those ads that obscure your whole screen when you’re trying to make a phone call, unlock your device or use your phone’s GPS? Technically, they’re called disruptive or out-of-app ads, and they maddeningly pop up outside of the app that hosts them, sometimes causing users to mistakenly click them, thereby frustrating users and wasting advertisers’ money. On Thursday, Google kicked nearly 600 of the offending apps off its Play store and banned them from its ad monetization platforms, Google AdMob and Google Ad Manager, for violating its disruptive ads policy and disallowed interstitial policy. Disruptive ads are those that come at you in unexpected ways, including by getting in the way of a device’s functions. While they do occur in-app, Google has recently seen a rise in what it calls “out-of-context ads” – those created by malicious developers who program them to pop up when the user isn’t actually active in their app.

Can publishers alliances be the future for digital advertising?

But this doesn’t appear to have hindered the big three, Facebook, Amazon and Google, which are expected to account for 70% of digital advertising spend in the US in 2020. For media owners, competing with the mega-platforms has always been a challenge. Many elected to work with the big players; and now find themselves dealing with tighter and tighter browser restrictions.
