42% of people believe ads can change the world, despite trust crisis

thedrum | January 30, 2020

In 2019 it was revealed that public trust in advertising had hit a record low of 25%, but fresh research has shown that people in the UK are still relatively positive about the industry’s impact on society.  A study from the Advertising Association (AA) and Credos on UK advertising’s social contribution (which drew responses from over 1,000 members of the British public and the ad industry) has revealed that 46% of adults believe advertising has a positive impact on society. 36% said advertising’s influence was neither positive nor negative and 18% said it was negative. A further 42%, meanwhile, agreed that advertising had the power to help make the world a better place. Less than a quarter of respondents disagreed with that statement.

Relationships are something that are formed, but conversations are ongoing and evolving and require both sides to participate. It seems like I can't get through a day right now without hearing somebody in the media or on the street talking about social media. I think it is great that social media has captured people's attention, but will having more communication channels improve conversational marketing?

Cinedigm Networks Announces Record Streaming Ad Revenue Growth

CINEDIGM | November 06, 2020

Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) today announced revenues on the company’s ad-supported streaming channels grew 29% from September to October, 2020, setting a new company record. Year over year, October revenues were up more than 148% when compared to October 2019, which was also a company record. The company’s ad revenue growth has been driven by a dramatic increase in advertiser demand for connected TV ad revenues, which account for more than 96% of all ad impressions generated by Cinedigm. Combined with a rapidly increasing customer base due to stay-at-home guidelines, ad impressions are up more than 570% since the Pandemic began in March 2020. To ensure ad opportunities are filled, Cinedigm has also focused on scaling the total number of advertising supply side platforms (“SSPs”) reaching the company’s inventory, and added 25 new ad partners alone in October. “Cinedigm is in the perfect position to take advantage of the great shift of ad dollars from Cable to streaming,” Said Erick Opeka, President of Cinedigm Networks. “Major national brand advertisers have woken up to the power of targeted digital advertising in the living room, and our portfolio of premium enthusiast networks delivers the audiences and engagement that is increasingly difficult to reach on legacy television.” To continue the current ad revenue growth trajectory, Cinedigm plans to further expand the launch of new networks, with 15 new channels signed to launch over the next twelve months. The company is also planning to expand its ad-supported device footprint beyond the current 850 million device base, through the addition of additional high quality partnerships alongside key partners like Samsung, PlutoTV, IMDBtv, Vizio and dozens more.
