AI-Powered Creative
Creating ad campaigns is a gamble. As advertisers, you are never sure if it was optimized enough, have no idea which micro-targets it resonates with the most, and it could take up to a year to determine the campaign’s sales impact. Market trends change by then. However, AI-powered ad creative can turn things around for you. You will know exactly what aspects of the ad resonate with your target demographic.

“It’s a welcome change for creatives, who find it empowering because they can think more broadly, experiment more, and learn faster,” says David Olesnevich, Head of Product at IBM Watson Advertising

“It’s a welcome change for creatives, who find it empowering because they can think more broadly, experiment more, and learn faster,” says David Olesnevich, Head of Product at IBM Watson Advertising

Let us take a look at what an AI-powered creative can do for your ad campaign:
  • Instant Optimization
AI-powered creative can be optimized instantly, not just for display ads but also for OTT video ads. You don’t need to spend extra time or resources to scale your optimization efforts.

  • Multiple Variations
Elements in AI creative can be varied and combined with music tracks, sound effects, voice-overs, scripts, video clips and sequences, hero shots, text overlays, end cards, and calls-to-action.

  • Easy Scaling
AI-powered creative ad campaigns are easy to scale across sectors for micro-targets defined by demographics, psychographics, life stage, customer journey stage, purchase behavior, and other KPIs like video completion, app installs, site visits, form-filling, purchases/conversions.

  • Enhanced Targeting
This technology can target your desired demographic based on message resonance. Consumer characteristics that respond to different message element combinations can help create persona profiles.

Brand advertisers like you need to prepare themselves for a cookie-less future with Google phasing out third-party cookies by 2023. Additionally, you need to also take into account Apple ending the IDFA (ID for Advertising). Figuring out micro-targets will get tougher because of these factors. You will have to harness solutions that respect consumer privacy without depending on the traditional advertising identifiers that will no longer remain.

Creative Professionals Can Better Maximize Client ROI

AI-powered creative is a modular and smarter way to develop ads. It takes the guesswork out of advertising with more actionable information to enhance brand campaigns and how they deliver a higher ROI.

Google’s and Facebook’s Grip on Digital Advertising Markets

Article | June 20, 2021

Since July 2019, the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority has been conducting an extensive investigation of the digital advertising market. In its preliminary report on the investigation, the CMA expresses concerns that Google and Facebook have grown so “large and have such extensive access to data that potential rivals can no longer compete on equal terms.” 2019 marked the year in which digital advertising finally took the crown from TV and other legacy media both in the US and worldwide. Estimates point out that digital ads now account for 51 percent of the almost $600 billion spent globally on advertising, a percentage that should only rise with time.

Alex Webb: More kids with smartphones spells advertising bonanza

Article | September 21, 2021

The revelation that, by the age of seven, 53% of British kids will own a mobile phone, will come as good news to one group in particular: advertisers. By the time U.K. youngsters are 11, the ownership ratio reaches a whopping 90%, according to a report published last week by the research consultancy Childwise. And as the penetration of smartphone usage rises, it creates more opportunity for advertisers to get in front of young eyeballs. Parents need to get clued up if they want to stop that from happening. For now, advertising targeted at children has been slower to migrate online than in the broader industry. Whereas more than half of the world's $614 billion of ad spending is now online, less than a third of the outlay for ads targeting children is digital, according to a 2019 study by PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Quotient’s Retail Ad Network Launches to Simplify and Consolidate Off-Site Retail Media Campaigns Through One Holistic Platform

Quotient | December 21, 2022

Quotient, a leading digital media and promotions technology company, today announced the launch of its Retail Ad Network that aggregates individual retail media networks to enable advertisers to target, manage, execute and measure off-site campaigns across multiple retailers through one central, transparent platform.

MAGNA and Roku Find Creative Streaming TV Ads 2X Better Than Traditional TV Ads

MAGNA | January 23, 2023

MAGNA Media Trials, the industry-leading proprietary research offering of MAGNA, and Roku have just announced a new study in cooperation with the Roku Brand Studio, which reveals that new video ad formats in streaming TV are twice as appealing to consumers as traditional TV advertising. Currently, marketers strive to stand out in the transition to streaming. However, traditional TV ads alone miss an opportunity to surprise and excite viewers throughout streamers' journey outside the traditional ad break. Beyond the: 30 on streaming TV investigates how marketers can create more engaging and powerful ad experiences on the platform. There were tests of three new "Beyond the: 30" video ad formats: Roku Original Vignette: A 30-second ad in which a brand references the Roku Original program being streamed. Thematic Tagged Vignette: A 30-second animated commercial in which a brand celebrates streaming. Watch Alongs: During commercial breaks, the brand sponsors discuss the television show or movie being streamed. All three "Beyond the: 30" ads outperformed traditional TV ads in terms of top-of-mind brand recall (+57% "Beyond the: 30" vs. +43%), brand favorability (+8% vs. +3%), and intent to search (+16% vs. +9%). These findings demonstrate the great potential of "Beyond the: 30" advertisements, which include increasing brand awareness and boosting sales. Multiple brands from many verticals participated in the study, including T-Mobile and Subaru. A home-based panel of 1,316 viewers was randomly split between exposed and control groups, who saw their preferred content intermingled with streaming-specific and traditional ads. Following the content viewing experience, viewers were questioned to evaluate the effect on brand key performance indicators (KPIs) and to get a deeper understanding of consumers' perspectives. About MAGNA MAGNA is the worldwide leader in media investment and intelligence. Its reliable data, innovative trial offerings, industry-leading negotiation skills, and exceptional consultancy solutions provide clients and subscribers with a compelling market edge.
