In early 2018 at the IAB Annual Leadership Meeting, IAB announced a paradigm-shifting thesis to capture, explain and understand an “enduring shift in the way the consumer economy operates”, a shift from a century old “indirect brand economy” to a “direct brand economy” characterized by data-driven, digitally native, and customer experience-obsessed upstart brands with direct connections to consumers. They are disrupting the legacy business model of marketing and driving the growth of a new consumer economy.

Google play movies may offer hundreds of free movies with ads

Article | March 26, 2020

Google also offers the ability to buy or rent movies and TV shows from the Play Store. Since 2012, this section is available in several countries. The pricing strategy has not changed, so many still consider it a relatively costly service. But, in some countries, discounts are quite often offered. Now there should be a new feature that will offer watching movies and other content for free. We could say that this service is facing difficulties because of the competition with Netlfix, HBO Go, and the others, where a relatively reasonable monthly payment with full content availability is set up. Now, Google platform will receive a new feature, which we will not find even with the above mentioned Netflix service. This is a free watching option with ads. The current version of Google Play Movies 4.18.37 includes several lines of code to indicate that we will see something like this soon.

Google to allow some coronavirus ads after broad ban

Article | March 26, 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.

Alex Webb: More kids with smartphones spells advertising bonanza

Article | March 26, 2020

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.
