When people want to watch premium content online, most have two choices: either watch the ad or pay for the content. Most choose to watch the ad—but prefer to get something of value in exchange for doing so. Data from Nielsen Media Labs, commissioned by Jun Group, is based on three waves of research conducted during Summer 2016. An online panel of 1,200 US internet users were shown ad content with either native ad formats, pre-roll formats or a value exchange—such as an opt-in or rewarded video—and were then surveyed to assess engagement and effectiveness.

How advertisers can be more innovative during trying times

Article | April 15, 2020

The impact of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, is being felt by millions of people across the globe. While nobody knows how long this period will last, I believe it's important for companies to try to find some semblance of normalcy. To do so, companies should consider all the ways they can continue to move forward with an eye toward empathy. This mindset comes with its own unique restrictions and challenges as human behaviors evolve. With the rise of social distancing and limits around public gatherings, people are moving away from live entertainment, such as movie theaters, plays, sporting events and concerts. Instead, they are spending more time streaming their favorite movies and shows, browsing social media, and playing video games from the comfort of their homes. In lieu of socializing at restaurants and bars, people are connecting with colleagues, friends and loved ones digitally, and many are doing their shopping via e-commerce.

How coronavirus is affecting advertising and marketing industry

Article | March 4, 2020

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.

Be brave with your advertising – in difficult times, your consumers need you

Article | March 26, 2020

Brands that continue to advertise through the coronavirus crisis will enjoy increased salience as consumers use media to occupy their time – and if you don’t, your competitor will. The most common question I’ve been asked by brands in the past two weeks is: “Should we continue to invest in advertising during the coronavirus outbreak, when so many people are isolated?” Marketing Week’s own figures show that many marketers are delaying their campaigns during this time. The truth is, none of us really knows the answer, but I can’t help but feel that for consumer brands this is the time to show that your brand matters. During times of uncertainty and hardship, we look for support, reassurance and even entertainment from brands we trust. It’s in uncertain times when we’ll need and remember you the most.
