Advertisers Triple their Upfront Commitment with Snap

Snapchat | April 26, 2021

Advertisers are increasing their spending on Snap as the world reopens. Snap reported US$770 million in Q1 revenue on Thursday, a 66% growth year on year, as the number of advertisers it deals with nearly doubled. Snap's ad business is expanding in all ways. Direct response ads currently account for more than half of the platform's revenue. Snap, on the other hand, tripled the number of upfront commitments it got from brands this year compared to 2020. Over the same time frame, Snaps' user base rose by 22% to 280 million, while average revenue per user increased by 36% to $2.74 year over year. Since the majority of Snap's users use Android smartphones, insulating it somewhat from upcoming tracking changes on Apple’s iOS 14.5. Ad rebound Advertisers are increasing their spending on Snap as the world recovers from the pandemic and the ad economy heats up again. Snap, which has been beefing up its direct response and e-commerce capability, is seeing travel and leisure advertisers, which have been hard hit by the pandemic, rebound “with a fury,” according to chief business officer Jeremi Gorman, highlighting the company's March acquisition of AR e-commerce platform Fit Analytics. Ecommerce, CPG, technology, streaming, online education, and telco brands are all showing interest in the platform. “We are seeing the return of some previously powerful categories, such as theatrical and movies,”she said. Snap is prioritizing augmented reality, partnering with brands such as Sweat, Gucci, The North Face, and American Eagle on branded lenses this quarter. In Q1, almost half (40%) of Snap users used filters regularly, with more than half of them being branded. “Augmented reality is one of our most exciting challenges as we look forward, and we are investing heavily in both core technology and community-facing AR apps on our service,” Evan Spiegel, co-founder and CEO of Snap, said during the earnings call. Snap also introduced a TikTok-rival update, Spotlight, in Q4, which was used by more than 125 million people in Q1. India, Mexico, and Brazil are now among the countries that have access to this feature. The IDFA to drop Snap is still unsure how Apple's App Tracking Transparency changes, which are set to take place on Monday, would affect its business. However, the company expects to grow by 80% in the second quarter. “It is not yet clear what the longer-term effect of the iOS platform updates might be on the topline momentum of the business,” said chief financial officer Derek Anderson. According to Spiegel, Apple's decision to delay the updates until April has given Snap time to implement SKAdNetwork, Apple's solution for measuring user activity across its applications, which it is testing with partners along with other "privacy-centric" solutions.

Ogury Announces Unique Fraud Prevention Capabilities to Ensure Fraud Free In-App Ad Campaigns

Ogury | September 17, 2020

Ogury, the global leader in mobile advertising driven by user choice, announced today the addition of proprietary App Spoofing Prevention and a partnership with DoubleVerify - a leading software platform for digital media measurement, data and analytics - to strengthen its commitment to fight fraud in advertising. Available today to new and current advertisers, these enhancements add two layers of fraud prevention to ensure ads are delivered to real humans in the intended environment. The ad tech ecosystem has recognized issues with fraud, toxic data and unsavory content. According to a report from Juniper Research, invalid traffic and fraud schemes were estimated to siphon $42 billion from advertisers across the globe last year by misrepresenting impressions, clicks, conversion or data events to generate revenue. A particular vulnerability in the mobile in-app space is app spoofing, which is when a fake, low volume, or brand unsafe apps disguise themselves as a more premium app to garner higher CPMs.

LinkedIn Announced Engagement Retargeting Options for Lead Ads and Video

LinkedIn | June 04, 2020

LinkedIn has announced much-anticipated targeting for its ads: engagement retargeting options for Lead Ads and Video views. LinkedIn has announced much-anticipated targeting for its ads: engagement retargeting options. It will be rolling out into accounts over the next month. Why Engagement Retargeting Was Needed for LinkedIn One of the harder parts of buying media in paid social is that the vast majority of users prefer to not leave the platform. Without on-site behavior to rely on for retargeting, advertisers can be left sending top-of-funnel ads to the same users over and over, without the insight that they may have taken on-platform actions already. More and more, social platforms have pushed to try and recreate remarketing possibilites based around a user’s on-platform behavior. Facebook developed this steadily over the years, with the ability to target users who engaged with posts, contacted a Page via Messenger, watched a certain percentage of a video, and many other options. Read more: LinkedIn introduces conversation ads: A new message-based ad format With the cost of LinkedIn, many advertisers can struggle to drive enough traffic to build a remarketing audience worth the cost to get users to their website. Because LinkedIn is heavily business to business, the product life cycles tend to be long, with many interactions along the way to a purchase or conversion. How Lack of Engagement Retargeting Impacted Advertisers The lack of insight or ability to retarget on-platform behaviors like users who watched a video or interacted with a lead form was a hindrance. “There’s so much value in being able to keep top-of-mind for all platform interactions, rather than just the portion that makes it to the website,”said AJ Wilcox. Wilcox is the founder of B2Linked, an internationally recognized expert agency in LinkedIn Ads, and the host of the LinkedIn Ads Show Podcast. This was also creating looming angst around the demise of third-party cookie reliance in ads. Engagement retargeting on LinkedIn is something we’ve been waiting on for a long time. The platform’s existing retargeting solution is fully reliant on cookies, so half of your traffic doesn’t qualify (iOS devices) and the other half will be gone in 2 years. It requires someone to visit your website. - AJ Wilcox Lead Gen Form Retargeting Audience creation is done in the Account Assets section by choosing the Matched Audiences option. It will work with awareness, engagement, and conversion objectives. Audiences can be created based on members who opened or submitted the lead forms you run on LinkedIn. The window for engagement can be from 30-365 days in the past. The audience will have a minimum size requirement of 300 to be used in a target. Video Retargeting Audiences for video retargeting are also in Account Assets section by choosing the Matched Audiences option. It will also work with awareness, engagement, and conversion objectives. You can create audiences based on how much of your video audiences watched: -25% -50% -75& -97% -100% Like Lead Gen Form audiences, you can choose a time period of 30-365 days in the past. You also specify which video ad campaigns you are looking to focus on. It will list the number of video views per campaign, completion rates and time periods. The Video Views option also extends to users who viewed on the Audience Network. Future Iterations of Engagement Targeting While LinkedIn hasn’t announced anything further, Wilcox notes this is a great first step to opening the door further. “My hope is that this will be a platform that continues to get access to new audiences. I’d love to see the ability to retarget those who clicked on an ad (not just those who made it to the landing page), and even visitors to personal Profiles and company Pages in the future,” he commented. LinkedIn’s announcement is here, and they have updated their retargeting documentation to include these new features.
