Article | July 19, 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.

Mobile media usage in the US will reach 4 hours 29 minutes per day in 2022, according to Statista. In a mobile-first world, advertisers are understanding and adapting to the changing habits of your target demographic. They are switching to using 6-second video ads to address the decreasing individual ad session times.

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

Measured Launches In UK With New Tools That Enable Retailers to Maximise Advertising ROI

Measured | October 04, 2022

Measured has launched new tools and features to help marketers maximise advertising ROI and find new ways to grow. The latest product launch also marks Measured’s official arrival in the UK market to revolutionise how British retailers measure – and spend - their media budgets. Measured is the only media optimisation platform that reveals the true incremental contribution of advertising spend to business results. “Marketers are under constant pressure to not only prove the business impact of every dollar they spend, but also predict the impact of every dollar they plan to spend,” said Trevor Testwuide, co-founder and CEO at Measured. “Marketers are under constant pressure to not only prove the business impact of every dollar they spend, but also predict the impact of every dollar they plan to spend,” said Trevor Testwuide, co-founder and CEO at Measured. “That pressure is even more intense when there is uncertainty about the future, like the threat of a recession. By unlocking the power of the industry’s largest collection of media incrementality intelligence, Measured tools enable customers to continuously adapt and optimise media for their business-critical metrics.” Measured customers take scalpel to waste in marketing spend With the current recession in the UK, businesses are looking for ways to save money. Measuring the incremental contribution media investments make to business results can identify where to eliminate waste and determine the right channels, campaigns, and tactics to focus on to remain profitable. “By automatically calculating the estimated outcomes of proposed changes to our media mix, Media Plan Optimiser enables us to make confident decisions about spend allocation,” said Eli Esagoff, Growth Marketer at True Classic. “The ability to choose from different levels of intensity, based on budget flexibility and appetite for change, means it’s great for any type of advertiser. The tool has saved our team a lot of time deliberating over marketing mix decisions.” In the last year, Measured has been used by brands to optimise more than £3.65 billion in global advertising spend. Marketers at leading UK consumer brands, including MADE, Dermalogica UK, AB InBev UK and Stance, trust Measured to connect advertising spend to business results and answer the toughest marketing questions being asked by executives and stakeholders. New tools give marketers true visibility over how spend drives results Measured’s Media Plan Optimiser and a new benchmark comparison tool provide marketers with instant insights and recommendations to drive media efficiency and maximise the impact of their media spend. The Media Plan Optimiser saves time and reduces guesswork with accurate, automated spend recommendations for every channel and tactic. Using incrementality-driven allocation technology, integrated with company performance data, it shows how to generate the best results on every channel, while taking into account the diminishing returns of increasing spend. With customisable budgets, objectives, and optimisation strengths, advertisers can run and compare multiple scenarios in minutes to uncover opportunities to increase efficiency, scale, and diversify spend. With the new benchmarks' comparison feature, brands can also compare their critical media allocation, performance, and growth metrics against other brands in the Measured portfolio. By tracking costs, spend allocation, and results of similar brands, advertisers can identify market trends and reveal new channels or tactics worth exploring. Continuously updated with cross-portfolio data and insights from ongoing incrementality testing, marketers can use comparison data to answers questions like: Do I allocate more or less of my budget than my peers to certain channels or tactics? Are my conversion rates similar to other brands? Am I paying more than other brands for the same media? Is my media driving more incremental sales than other brands in my category? What other channels and tactics are working for my peer group that I should consider adding to my mix? Incrementality measurement for media attribution gains momentum As outdated models like multi-touch attribution break down due to increasing restrictions on how companies collect data and track users, incrementality-based attribution is on the rise as a reliable - and privacy compliant - method for measuring ad performance. Test and control experiments used to measure incrementality do not require tracking at the user level and can be used to determine which media channels or tactics contribute to business metrics - and by how much. The Measured platform is anchored on results and data from thousands of incrementality experiments that were run by all types of businesses and measured against actual conversion data from the brands. This collection of incrementality intelligence, only accessible to Measured customers, continuously grows more powerful as it is updated with results from hundreds of ongoing in-market tests.

Moloco | October 03, 2022

Moloco, a machine learning company, today announced that advertising and search product executive Bill Michels has been appointed General Manager of Moloco’s Retail Media business unit. Prior to joining Moloco, Bill Michels was the Executive Vice President of Product at The Trade Desk. Michels brings more than two decades of successful leadership across product management, engineering, data strategy, and business development for some of the definitive companies in advertising and search. He was previously Chief Data Officer at Foursquare after spending 10 years at Factual, most notably as Chief Operating Officer responsible for product, engineering, and data partnerships before its merger with Foursquare.

In this newly created role, he will oversee product and business development for Moloco’s continued innovation in the retail media category. Notably, Michels’ search experience will be invaluable to further capitalize on Moloco’s use of first-party intent signals from shopper’s search, browse, and purchase history to show relevant, highly performant ads right at the point of purchase. “Bill Michels has been at the forefront of adtech as a product and business leader. His track record of bringing breakthrough technologies to scale speaks for itself. Bill’s vision has helped define the products and businesses that make up the sponsored search and demand-side advertising ecosystems today,” said Ikkjin Ahn, CEO and Co-founder, Moloco. “Bill Michels has been at the forefront of adtech as a product and business leader. His track record of bringing breakthrough technologies to scale speaks for itself. Bill’s vision has helped define the products and businesses that make up the sponsored search and demand-side advertising ecosystems today,” said Ikkjin Ahn, CEO and Co-founder, Moloco. “Our team is looking forward to his leadership and collaboration as we make progress toward our goal of creating a more equitable and profitable digital economy for companies of all sizes.” Retail media is estimated to reach $100 billion1 over the next five years and is one of the fastest-growing segments of the digital marketing industry. While large online retailers such as Amazon have demonstrated that retail media drives profitability, sales acceleration, merchant revenue, and customer satisfaction, most companies don’t have the resources, time, or expertise to develop an in-house performant sponsored search solution that scales. Moloco’s Retail Media Platform uses advanced machine learning to securely unlock the value of an e-commerce marketplace’s own first-party user data and automate highly relevant sponsored ads throughout the buyer journey. With Moloco, marketplaces enhance, rather than disrupt, the shopping experience and drive demand for their merchants when and where it matters most. “Building upon the world-class machine learning infrastructure that Moloco has created for its Moloco Cloud DSP product, we are able to provide marketplaces and their merchants with a powerful platform to grow their business, while providing consumers with highly personalized experiences,” said Bill Michels, GM Retail Media Platform, Moloco. “It’s an exciting opportunity to build a product that leverages rich first-party signals to optimize for the multiple constituents in Retail Media - retailers or marketplaces, merchants, and consumers. Moloco’s Retail Media Platform touches on several components throughout my career and I am looking forward to leveraging them to build something special with the amazing team here.” Michels holds an MBA from Columbia Business School where he was a Beta Gamma Sigma Scholar. He earned his BA from Colby College. Michels lives in Southern California and will work closely with Moloco’s Retail Media business and product teams around the globe.

While large online retailers such as Amazon have demonstrated that retail media drives profitability, sales acceleration, merchant revenue, and customer satisfaction, most companies don’t have the resources, time, or expertise to develop an in-house performant sponsored search solution that scales. Moloco’s Retail Media Platform uses advanced machine learning to securely unlock the value of an e-commerce marketplace’s own first-party user data and automate highly relevant sponsored ads throughout the buyer journey. With Moloco, marketplaces enhance, rather than disrupt, the shopping experience and drive demand for their merchants when and where it matters most. “Building upon the world-class machine learning infrastructure that Moloco has created for its Moloco Cloud DSP product, we are able to provide marketplaces and their merchants with a powerful platform to grow their business, while providing consumers with highly personalized experiences,” said Bill Michels, GM Retail Media Platform, Moloco. “It’s an exciting opportunity to build a product that leverages rich first-party signals to optimize for the multiple constituents in Retail Media - retailers or marketplaces, merchants, and consumers. Moloco’s Retail Media Platform touches on several components throughout my career and I am looking forward to leveraging them to build something special with the amazing team here.” Michels holds an MBA from Columbia Business School where he was a Beta Gamma Sigma Scholar. He earned his BA from Colby College. Michels lives in Southern California and will work closely with Moloco’s Retail Media business and product teams around the globe.
