What_Influencers_Look
A few years ago, the word “influencer” meant something pretty different than what it represents today. In 2016, the Instagram-focused social media consumer probably pictured a wealthy ex-Bachelor contestant who took beach photos in a personalized floppy hat and sponsored weight loss tea. But in 2021, the creator economy has evolved to encompass a more relatable, diverse population. Average Joes have completely disrupted the influencer marketplace, and now that brands across all categories have an influencer marketing plan, they are competing to get their products and services in front of the eyes of loyal fanbases.

Google’s and Facebook’s Grip on Digital Advertising Markets

Article | May 21, 2021

Since July 2019, the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority has been conducting an extensive investigation of the digital advertising market. In its preliminary report on the investigation, the CMA expresses concerns that Google and Facebook have grown so “large and have such extensive access to data that potential rivals can no longer compete on equal terms.” 2019 marked the year in which digital advertising finally took the crown from TV and other legacy media both in the US and worldwide. Estimates point out that digital ads now account for 51 percent of the almost $600 billion spent globally on advertising, a percentage that should only rise with time.

Alex Webb: More kids with smartphones spells advertising bonanza

Article | June 1, 2021

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.

MiQ Partners with SeenThis to Advance Sustainability in Digital Advertising

Business Wire | April 21, 2023

As part of its ongoing commitment to addressing pollution caused by online media delivery, leading global programmatic media partner MiQ today announces a new partnership with groundbreaking streaming tech provider, SeenThis. Together, the pair are modernizing creative delivery for eco-conscious brands and agencies, using the power of streaming to advance more sustainable MiQ-driven campaigns across the world. Compared to conventional technology used to deliver programmatic creative, SeenThis is fueled by adaptive streaming, which instantly delivers the highest quality creative possible and with less data waste. These ads stream in bite-sized pieces when in-view, ensuring that data is transferred only when actively consumed by users and is otherwise paused. For MiQ and its clients, this reduces data waste by an average of 25%, as well as associated carbon emissions all related to excessive buffering and offscreen loading. It also eliminates reliance on publisher bandwidth to download files and improves the overall user experience for static images, video, and other display formats. This includes: No creative limits: Creative delivery modernized by streaming tech Effective delivery of greener campaigns: Wasted impressions are minimized by pausing advertisements when out-of-view High attention formats: Clients can extend video reach into display formats with over 80% viewability Paired with MiQ’s agnostic, multi-DSP optimization tactics and advanced programmatic activation strategies, MiQ and SeenThis have already achieved greener and more performant results for over 100 campaigns to date, including for major fashion houses, tourism brands and next-gen gaming companies. Through faster load times and better viewability, click-through rates have performed 2x better than standard display, resulting in nearly 85K KG of CO2e savings for clients to date, which is equivalent to the pollution from over 3 million plastic bags or driving from New York to L.A. 160+ times. Against this impressive backdrop, MiQ is using SeenThis technology to develop new streamed formats and expand its streamed offering into other channels beyond display, which will be unveiled in the coming months. “In 2022, we made great strides with Scope3 and MiQ’s Green Score to measure, reduce, and benchmark carbon emissions across the supply chain,” says Chris Lehman, Global Head of Creative at MiQ. “Our team is fully dedicated to identifying and actioning new ways to address the sustainability needs of the industry. Optimizing and future-proofing the creative that clients use seemed like a natural next step in this continued progression. SeenThis is the perfect partner to aid us in that journey and we look forward to further innovations which enable a greener ad ecosystem.” Thomas Houge, CCO at SeenThis adds: “The combination of our innovative creative technology with MiQ’s robust sustainability offering creates something completely new in the market. We’re already seeing the huge benefits that this provides to companies we’re working with together. We’re eager and ready to facilitate this success for others across the globe and excited to collaborate with MiQ on additional advances this year and beyond.” About SeenThis Since 2017, Swedish tech company SeenThis has been evolving screen experiences for everyone, everywhere.
