Then this October, we learned the app would be officially shut down by Twitter. Even before then, attention had already shifted to newer, more flexible video formats like the new giant on the block, Facebook Live.This constant social media turnover is all-too-familiar and, oftentimes, all-too-costly. Companies invest in new tools and strategies, develop marketing plans, and race to bring employees up to speed… only to see the proverbial rug pulled out overnight.

How Online Tracking and Bloated Ad Tech Impact the Customer Experience

Article | March 2, 2020

The retail landscape is more crowded than ever. Nearly every day, a new brand pops up seeking consumer attention and buy-in across the globe, and this intense competition has fostered some questionable practices in the world of digital advertising. Hungry for impressions, retailers and online brands have invested billions into powerful advertising technology with the ability to collect very personal information on each customer in order to deliver them extremely, almost dangerously, targeted ads. As the retail experience shifts away from brick-and-mortar stores and hones in on e-commerce, retailers of all sizes will continue to spend egregious amounts to capture consumer sentiment.

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.

The Cybertruck Shows How Tesla Could Dominate the Auto Industry

Article | February 19, 2020

With a collective gasp and puzzled looks, the world was recently introduced to Tesla’s newest vehicle. The so-called Cybertruck is an angular, stainless steel, all-electric pickup truck that quickly became polarizing. The launch didn’t go very smoothly. The truck’s windows shattered when its lead designer smashed them with a metal ball, causing Tesla founder Elon Musk to curse under his breath. Regardless, pre-orders for the Cybertruck approached 250,000 within a week. Such an explosion of interest with no advertising, and an arguably disastrous grand opening event, is probably unprecedented. On a global scale, it’s clear that electric vehicles — known colloquially as EVs —have reached a new level of public acceptance. As of 2018, more than five million EVs were sold around the world. Canadians have been somewhat slower at adopting this technology, with all-electric vehicles representing 1.2 per cent of sales in 2018, or approximately 46,000 units. That said, Canadian sales of EVs grew 165 per cent year-over-year in 2018.

Article | May 20, 2021

When it comes to PPC advertising, it’s not uncommon to think: Bing Ads vs. Google Ads. On top of that: Which platform has more reach? Is Bing less expensive? Which has more targeting capabilities? Which will produce more conversions and revenue? While many PPC advertisers view the two platforms as competitors, they actually work best hand-in-hand. Google undoubtedly has the majority of the search market, but Bing advertising certainly shouldn’t be forgotten. Rather than Google Ads vs. Bing Ads, marketers should be thinking Google Ads plus Bing Ads.
