Article | March 22, 2020

Oftentimes, our social media video marketing efforts are weighed down by our own customers for the lack of thoughtful stories that can touch upon them. These are like run-of-the-mill, telling everything that the target viewers are least interested in knowing. And the heavy budgets we utilize to create a ‘so called’ powerful video is usually downcast as a no-brainer. There does exist a gap between what we do and what is expected of us. Whether it is B2B video marketing or B2C video marketing, the underlying objective of filling the gap remains the same.

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.

Google purges 600 Android apps for “disruptive” pop-up ads

Article | February 24, 2020

You know those ads that obscure your whole screen when you’re trying to make a phone call, unlock your device or use your phone’s GPS? Technically, they’re called disruptive or out-of-app ads, and they maddeningly pop up outside of the app that hosts them, sometimes causing users to mistakenly click them, thereby frustrating users and wasting advertisers’ money. On Thursday, Google kicked nearly 600 of the offending apps off its Play store and banned them from its ad monetization platforms, Google AdMob and Google Ad Manager, for violating its disruptive ads policy and disallowed interstitial policy. Disruptive ads are those that come at you in unexpected ways, including by getting in the way of a device’s functions. While they do occur in-app, Google has recently seen a rise in what it calls “out-of-context ads” – those created by malicious developers who program them to pop up when the user isn’t actually active in their app.

Article | March 25, 2020

Two days ago, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics were postponed. The decision surprised no one given the coronavirus, even if the numbers in cases in Japan have slowed down recently. With all the travel and tourism involved, it would’ve led to another serious outbreak of the virus. As a result, the Olympics will move to 2021. A new date hasn’t been announced yet. Tourism, hotels, and airlines will take a hit from the reasonable decision. As for advertisers, $1.2 billion in ad sales is now in question. $1.25 Billion in Ad Sales According to Deadline, Comcast’s NBCUniversal is now communicating with advertisers on the $1.25 billion in ad sales already sold. It’s a new record for the Olympics. It’s unclear whether Comcast will pay back the advertisers or play their ads next year. In total, $6 billion is usually generated in sponsorship from the Olympics. Now, a large chunk of that sum is at stake. Fun fact: that $6 billion doubles the previous summer games in sponsorship revenue.
