Google to allow some coronavirus ads after broad ban

Article | April 2, 2020

Google will lift a broad ban on coronavirus advertisements, phasing in some advertisers with a priority on those working directly on the pandemic. The company started blocking coronavirus-related ads in January, placing them under its "sensitive events policy," which blocks ads that exploit people during events such as natural disasters, public health emergencies or tragedies by advertising fake or hoarded products. Axios first reported that Google's head of industry, Mark Beatty, sent a memo to clients that it will start to run some coronavirus ads. Advertisements to run this week will include public service announcements from "government entities, hospitals, medical providers, and NGOs who want to get relevant information out to the public," according to the memo.

As more mundane tasks get automated, quintessential human skills such as creativity, innovative thinking, logical reasoning, communication, and personal rapport building are becoming increasingly important. Amazon will spend $700 million to re-skill around 100,000 workers in the US by 2025. Why? Because technologies such as Artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and automation continue to take over boring, repetitive tasks. For enterprises to survive and excel in such a rapidly-evolving business ecosystem, they need skilled professionals. In the business context, ‘skills’ are not limited to technical acumen alone.

Digital Billboard Brand Marketing Budget & Strategy

Article | April 6, 2020

Starting first with the budget: What do you want to invest on a daily basis in your brand? My recommendation here in a local area is going to be $20 per day per brand channel. So what that means is, if you want to be on a digital billboard on a highway, that’s $20. If you want to be on Facebook for the day, that’s $20. On Instagram is $20. If you want to be on YouTube, that’s another $20. And so you can quickly get to where your budget is roughly anywhere from $60 to $100 a day, whether you’re on anywhere three to five different channels. I definitely recommend multi-channel, that’s going to build trust. Because if somebody sees you in all these different places, every time they see you, it’s just another element of trust (which would avoid questions like: “Is dropshipping legal?” or “Is dropshipping dead?”). You’re covering all areas. Digital billboards on the highway are extremely powerful because it makes you instantly think, like this business is on a little bit higher level than the other businesses.

How to Reinvent Digital Advertising After the Death of the Cookie

Article | February 12, 2020

Proving that its privacy mission isn’t just talk, Google has taken its first major step towards blocking third-party cookies. In its latest policy update, Chrome 80 will stop supporting cross-site sharing, unless cookies are flagged in line with the SameSite internet standard. On the surface, this move is about online security and clarity. As long as technology vendors and publishers label cookies accurately, tracking and targeted ads can keep running. But with semi-restricted cookie sharing now the default for those who fail to flag, it seems like this will be a sizeable nail in the cookie coffin.
