Article | August 12, 2022

On July 13, Netflix’s COO, Greg Peters, officially named Microsoft as Netflix’s “global advertising technology and sales partner”. This partnership will help Netflix kick-start its advertising business. Industry watchers were waiting to see who Netflix would choose as its advertising platform to build its ad-supported tier of service after the streaming giant’s April announcement to bring ads to the platform. In April, we announced that we would introduce a new lower priced ad-supported subscription plan for consumers, in addition to our existing ad-free basic, standard, and premium plans. Today we are pleased to announce that we have selected Microsoft as our global advertising technology and sales partner. “Microsoft has the proven ability to support all our advertising needs as we together build a new ad-supported offering, More importantly, Microsoft offered the flexibility to innovate over time on both the technology and sales side, as well as strong privacy protections for our members.” -Greg Peters,COONetflix. It’s very early days and we have much to work through. But our long-term goal is clear: More choice for consumers and a premium, better-than-linear TV brand experience for advertisers. We’re excited to work with Microsoft as we bring this new service to life. Microsoft recently acquired Xandr, an ad marketplace that ties into connected TV. It has been developing its ad platform while endorsing its approach to protecting customers’ information. Marketers looking to Microsoft for their advertising needs will have access to the Netflix audience and premium connected TV inventory, said Mikhail Parakhin, Microsoft’s president of web experiences. While assisting Netflix in delivering more choices to its customers, Microsoft will offer new premium value to its ecosystem of marketers and partners.

Creating Great Ads: CX Should Surpass Technology in Priority

Article | July 6, 2022

Everyone can be a creator, critic, performer and an audience member— all at the same time — thanks to the internet. However, when it comes to advertising and the internet, the biggest opportunity that you have is customer experience (CX). And yet, new technologies and the desire to decrease ad spend put customer experience on the back-burner. Why CX Should be a Priority While Making Ads? Customer experience takes a nosedive when you automate marketing decisions, drive down advertising costs, extract data, and increase intrusiveness to reach more customers. These factors negatively impact your brand’s reputation and cause customers to leave your side. As a result, your revenue might take a hit by implementing modern technology. Customer experience should always be at the top of your priority list if you want to retain your customers and give them exactly what they want. Here are some things you should remember while creating ads: Context is Key Your messaging and creatives should align with the context of your ad placement. Native ads and contextual targeting can help you safely place your ads without disrupting your UX. Value Addition Works Your consumers want to see something that is unique and adds value to their lives. Use creative, relatable, and authentic messaging to appeal to your audience. Use Technology Wisely If you don’t leverage ad tech as a part of a sound strategy and intelligent design, you might lose out on effectively representing your brand in front of your target audience. Rules to Remember While Making Ad Creatives Do not treat your audience as a set of data points Platforms are dynamic so you need to adapt to the changes in time Use technology to meet the expectations of your audience but don’t abuse it
