Streaming is the mainstream: what that means for UK advertisers

Article | August 10, 2021

In the last year, streaming adoption has grown throughout the UK. We spent more time at home, and many of us turned to new, digital forms of entertainment. But even now with the UK open, many consumers continue to appreciate some of the habits they adopted over the last 16 months, including streaming. Through a recent Kantar study, we learned that 84% of Amazon customers surveyed in the UK are either cord-stackers (viewers who watch both streaming and broadcast or satellite content), or cord-cutters (viewers who only stream content). This sends a clear message. It’s not just early adopters streaming content. It’s the majority. Furthermore, video gaming and e-sports are also on the rise—consumers in 600,000 households started playing console games on their TV in 2020 in the UK, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain, according to Kantar’s Worldpanel ComTech data. In the UK, e-sports is increasingly popular with nearly 1 in 4 TV viewers streaming e-sports. And where are many gamers watching other gamers? On Twitch. There are now 30 million average daily users on Twitch from 230 countries. Consumers in the UK are also streaming more podcasts, music, and other audio content, year over year.

How coronavirus is affecting advertising and marketing industry

Article | August 10, 2021

The fast spreading coronavirus is taking a toll on economic activities around the world as the entire supply chain continues to be affected and major global events are either being cancelled or postponed. If the spread of the disease isn’t contained soon, it could even affect the advertising and marketing spends of brands. Mark Read, CEO, WPP, said, “In terms of our business, it is too early to say how it is going to impact. If it affects the global economy, then WPP and other companies will be impacted.” “Global growth will de-grow one-and-a-half per cent to one per cent in 2020 and we have to see whether that turns out to be pessimistic or optimistic as an estimate,” he adds.

Why Using Conversions Imported From Analytics to Google Ads Does Not Actually Make Sense

Article | August 10, 2021

As an alternative to setting up Google Ads conversion tracking, you can import conversions from Google Analytics, such as goals or transactions, and then use it for optimization of your Google Ads campaigns. It is not a new feature, and its use by advertisers is a common practice. It became even more popular recently, as the Smart Shopping campaigns require conversion tracking with transaction-specific values. The import of Google Analytics transactions is probably the easiest way to comply with this requirement if there is no Google Ads conversion value tracking in place.
