WeChat Links E-commerce Capability with Moment Ads

On August 4, WeChat quietly added one more function allowing brands to connect Moment Ads with e-commerce function, according to Chinese tech media Ebrun. This is significant because, in the past, luxury brands have been using WeChat Moments (similar to Facebook’s newsfeed) Ads for event registration and more. Now they can try to invest in e-commerce ads for a better return. The ads are similar to an Instagram “click to buy” ads used to attract stronger purchase intention. WeChat encourages merchants to create e-commerce shops with the B2B template tool Youzan, the one-stop-shop for merchants to set up the visual, merchandise, shipping, and even coupons on the WeChat store. To do this, companies would need to fill out a registration information online to verify their organization is located in China. And for those who already have their e-commerce shop, they can simply link it to their WeChat Moments Ads.

How Campaign Health Metrics Can Help You Streamline Ad Campaigns

Article | July 20, 2022

Advertising metrics provide clear information on the success and failures of an ad campaign. They are a practical tool to track all aspects of your marketing activities as well as how your campaign compares to designated metrics. Take a look at your campaign health metrics to understand your campaign’s performance. These metrics aren’t exactly KPIs (key performance indicators) because they are not tightly connected to your marketing goals. However, they do support the important ad metrics. They can give you insights into how to improve an ad campaign on your level. Check out this list of valuable metrics to add to your armory if you really want to find the value of your content, the value of your audience, and the success of the advertising you're hosting. Cost Efficiency Metrics (CPCs, CPMs, CPVs) Understand what your initial interaction with your audience is costing you. Metrics like cost per click, cost per mille and cost per view are foundational to determining where you need to focus to optimize your campaign while ensuring you have an eye on the changing trends. Click-Through Rate To understand how relevant your ads are to your audience, you need to look at your click-through rate. A low click-through rate means your ads have a huge scope of improvement and that you might not be targeting the right audience to meet your marketing goals. To avoid losing your ad spend, quickly identify drops in performance and alter your ads to make them relevant to your target audience. Conversion Rate The conversion rate of your ad indicates the relevance of your landing pages and how well they are optimized for conversion. If the conversion rate is low, it means that your site’s content is not resonating with your audience or that the audience you are targeting isn’t right for your product or service. It could also mean that your audience isn’t at the right stage of the funnel to take an action. You can make changes based on how this metric looks. Impression Share This metric helps you understand how much you can scale your campaign through aggressive bidding. It can also highlight underperforming keywords and how you can enhance your campaign by adjusting the budget. Adjusting geo-targeting settings and improving ad quality are some of the ways to increase the impression share. On-Site Engagement To gauge the interest of the audience in your ad campaign, keep an eye on on-site engagement metrics like bounce rate, average number of pages visited, and average session duration. These are the real measures of the interest your prospects show in your ads. Quality Score A quality score helps you identify ways to improve your campaign. This score gives you a comprehensive look at all the individual scores that affect your campaign. The historical data that evaluates the changes in your campaign over time is visible here. You can pinpoint which changes led to a positive impact and which didn’t. Bottomline Campaign health metrics are your answer to improving your ad campaigns. Taking note of what is working and what isn’t is the right way to constantly enhance the performanc

As a B2B Marketer, Is Out-of-home Advertising (OOH) Part of Your Mix?

Article | October 20, 2022

Many marketers today don’t know what OOH stands for, though it’s been a highly used marketing medium for decades. Out-of-home advertising consists of anything from billboards, blimps, and bus signage, to street furniture, event advertising, and connected TV, and can be as small as a window poster or the back of a street bench or larger than life, covering a wall or wrapping an entire building. OOH is now being seen as an emerging technology channel, but why? For starters, during the surge of online advertising over the last 15 years, Facebook and Google ads have seemingly gotten all the attention. Today, many marketing teams have been so focused on online marketing they no longer have much time to spend thinking out-of-the-box. But OOH is upping its game with a technology lift that is allowing marketers to highly target their audiences as well as improve the impact of their online advertising campaigns. And we’re not just talking about Pepsi and McDonalds. OOH advertising has long been effective for countless brands, known and unknown, and the possibilities are endless. We are seeing everything from wrapping an ice cream truck with your message and parking across the street from an event to highly targeted ads on TV screens in bars, restaurants, banks, and hotels. People take action after seeing OOH advertisements, doing online searches and visiting websites. In fact, Nielsen’s Out-of-Home Advertising Study 2019 edition reported that 66% of smartphone users took some type of action after seeing a OOH advertisement in the past year, and over four in 10 used online search to look up information. OOH drives more social and digital interactions than any other medium. If you aren’t in the OOH game, here’s why B2B marketers should be considering it as part of their marketing mix: 1. Build brand trust According to a survey conducted by Freeman, CMOs, brand managers, and event planners are putting more stake in in-person brand experiences. Billboards and OOH real world advertising are not only for the big brand names. If someone doesn’t know you, you can add significant trust and credibility to your brand as well as add more impact to your online Facebook and Google ads. And, OOH advertising is always there for audiences to see. It’s not invasive, block-able or frustrating as digital ads can be. 2. Hyper-target your audience Tech advances are allowing marketers to hyper-target out in the real-world. For startups, challenger brands, and anyone looking to target a specific group of people, it’s possible to zero in on the roads people drive on every day for work or the bars and restaurants they go to afterward. Mobile devices pinged at various locations are looked at like inbound links, as if coming from your website. If you want to reach people who work at a certain place, in a certain location, you can identify who’s driving by your billboard. 3. Generate leads You can then get that feedback, like who’s driving by, of those driving by, who went to your website? What are they searching on? Who converted to a lead? 4. Endless use cases With technology advancements, the possibilities in OOH are endless – mobile billboards on LED trucks, wall murals, TVs in countless public facilities and arenas, and billboards of all kinds that can be enhanced digitally. 5. OOH advertising is always “on.” Your OOH advertisement is there 24/7, delivering your message to every passerby during peak target times and all other times, broadening your reach without additional cost. And unlike digital advertising, OOH does not appear and then quickly disappear. It has staying power, displaying your message constantly and consistently around the clock. 6. Stand out at events: Though in-person conferences and events are coming back to life, the days of “host an event and they will come” are long gone. There is fierce competition for the hearts and minds of attendees. To dominate the competition, OOH is a great way to give you visibility, driving traffic to your event, to your booth, to your website – to network, make real-life connections, and generate leads. While online advertising has its place, we have taken a break from being creative. OOH allows an opportunity to get back into exercising your creative muscles. The challenge for marketers is to take their years of internet marketing experience and figure out how to create interesting brand experiences offline. From a tracking standpoint, OOH advertising today is looking more like online advertising. However, instead of tracking people, we are watching places as groups of people move through and pass by billboards or other signage. It’s a powerful “old” tool that marketers can combine with new tools to generate brand awareness and drive inbound interest from highly targeted specs. During the online advertising surge, while we have been wrapped up in tracking and measuring performance clicks, many companies have under invested in their brand. Plus, when integrated with digital marketing, OOH extends both reach and frequency, allowing you to leverage other marketing, online and offline, for maximum results and ROI. Marketers should now be thinking of OOH as one of their viable performance channels.

Ghost Ads and Bidding to Measure Incrementality

Article | August 12, 2022

Marketers and agencies must investigate the relevant counterfactual to advertising exposure to assess advertising effectiveness. Ghost ads can compare exposed and non-exposed consumers to measure ad-related behavior changes. What are Ghost Ads? Ghost ads are a great way to measure ad effectiveness or incrementality (the lift or increase in desired outcome through marketing) because they allow brands to see how their ad is received by two distinct consumer groups: those targeted and those who would have seen it organically. Leveraging Ghost Ads for Causal Ad Measurement: Here is why leveraging ghost ads to measure ad-related behavioral changes is a great idea: You don’t need to invest additional funds to create a control group You can have extensive reach within the DSP (demand-side platform) You can measure behavior for all formats such as mobile, audio and CTV Ghost Bidding: Mapping Consumer Behavior: In ghost bidding, a DSP platform accepts auctions for ad placements on publisher websites/apps/connected devices and bids on them. It records whether the auction was won (and the ad displayed). Before bidding, the platform assigns the user ID to a control or exposed group. For control group users, the bid is withdrawn so that no ad was shown during the study. This creates two identical groups, one that saw the ad and one that didn’t. You can then compare the test and control groups' website purchases, landing page visits, etc. Over a period of time, it is possible to record large effect sizes across several behaviors. A Large U.S-based Apparel Company Measured Their Ad Incrementality Using Ghost Ads: Using ghost ads and ghost bidding, a U.S based apparel company measured its ad incrementality. Over 21 million unique individuals saw the company’s ads over a 15 month period, for an average of around 35.4 ads per individual. The exposed group had a 1.42% greater chance of visiting the site, for a topline lift of 54.9%, compared to the ghost ad viewers. With this information, the company was able to optimize its advertising campaigns on the flu to have a bigger impact on its audience. Last Word: Cost-per-click, cost-per-site-visit, and other metrics used by marketers don't show any change in advertising behavior. Ghost Ads are the most cost-effective way to analyze digital marketing campaigns' causality.

IAS Launches New Made for Advertising (MFA) AI-Driven Site Detection and Avoidance Technology

Integral Ad Science | October 19, 2023

Integral Ad Science (Nasdaq: IAS), a leading global media measurement and optimization platform, today announced a new Made for Advertising (MFA) AI-driven site detection and avoidance product. The company's MFA site technology aims to improve transparency into advertiser campaign quality, identify where spend is being allocated, and inform optimizations to minimize waste on MFA sites. MFA sites are web pages featuring low quality content (e.g. spam sites, or ad farms) created solely to serve ads, and are optimized to perform well against traditional verification metrics, such as viewability. However, advertising spend on these sites does not drive meaningful outcomes, such as conversions or brand lift. IAS's new product leverages AI to uncover MFA sites at scale, allowing advertisers to take back control of their media quality and cut down on wasted spend. During Alpha testing, IAS delivered comprehensive campaign analysis demonstrating superior MFA site identification for some of the world's largest advertisers and agencies. IAS's product supports the Association of National Advertisers' (ANA) recent definition of MFA sites and incorporates characteristics such as ad-to-content ratio, ad refresh rate, and the source of the traffic coming to the site to classify a site as MFA. According to the ANA's Programmatic Media Supply Chain Transparency Study, 21% of all advertisement impressions measured were served on MFA sites. Our MFA product was built to deliver unprecedented transparency to advertisers and provide them with the ability to both detect and avoid MFA sites in order to redirect their ad spend to publishers that drive a return, said Yannis Dosios, Chief Commercial Officer, Integral Ad Science. The industry faces a significant challenge in combating MFA sites. By leveraging AI, we have developed a scalable way to identify these low quality sources of inventory and improve overall campaign performance. Advertisers and their agencies need confidence that the industry is converging on agreement about the specific websites that compose the MFA category. By training its model against Jounce Media's widely adopted list of MFA domains and incorporating signals from Sincera, IAS has developed the industry's first pressure tested solution for detecting and blocking MFA at scale. "Advertisers should recognize that MFA websites can account for a significant portion of their overall campaign and should determine, independently, if MFA sites fit with their brand suitability standards for content and user experience. We applaud IAS for taking action after we released the findings from our programmatic transparency report and for supporting our definition of MFA," said Bill Duggan, ANA group executive vice president. "We have found that awareness of MFA sites among the ANA community of media professionals to be limited – which is surprising. We look forward to further developments from IAS around MFA site identification and ad spend optimization to help better educate and inform buyers." The IAS MFA product completed alpha testing in early October 2023, and is available now as a beta measurement offering for select customers. General availability is expected to expand to all customers in early 2024.

ExchangeWire | October 17, 2023

Today, VIOOH, the leading premium global digital out-of-home (DOOH) supply-side platform in partnership with Yahoo Advertising has released a whitepaper examining the potential outcomes of including programmatic digital out-of-home (prDOOH) within multi-channel campaigns. As outlined in VIOOH’s annual State of the Nation report, a key request from advertisers is to understand how prDOOH fits within multi-channel campaigns, and how to best measure its impact. Analysing a series of case studies, the report outlines the best way for advertisers to maximise multi-channel campaign impact through the inclusion of prDOOH. Findings indicate that prDOOH’s inclusion in multi-channel media plans can drive more attention, boost engagement, and improve overall campaign effectiveness. Two key outcomes are clear: 1: Including prDOOH in a multi-channel media plan adds incremental value to the return on investment (ROI) of the digital media mix due to the priming effect - DOOH plays an important role in preparing consumers for conversions during re-engagements on other channels. 2: prDOOH as a channel can boost offline outcomes in terms of sales and footfall as a result of its ‘attention-grabbing’ characteristics and flexibility as a programmatic medium. The report also outlines how advertisers can optimise targeting, increase brand awareness, and drive consumer behaviour offline and online by leveraging the strengths of both broadcast and digital channels to deliver ROI. Helen Miall, CMO at VIOOH said, This whitepaper has been prompted by a significant increase in demand for prDOOH from advertisers, and a desire to understand how it can best be used alongside and within multi-channel campaigns. This report highlights its potential for delivering effective campaigns across upper and lower funnel tactics, and how prDOOH can be successfully combined with individual media to drive campaign effectiveness.
