Apple now allows push notification advertising, updates dating app review guidelines and more

9to5mac | March 04, 2020

Apple today updated its App Store review guidelines regarding some of the features introduced with iOS 13, besides the compatibility of apps with the latest iPhone and iPad models, and more. The company notes that 77% of all Apple devices shipped in the last four years are running iOS 13, the latest version of the operating system. On iPad, the number rises to 79% with iPadOS 13. That means it’s important for developers to update their apps with the latest technologies available. Apple says all new apps and app updates will be required to be built with the iOS 13 SDK starting April 30, 2020. That enables apps to offer features such as Dark Mode, ARKit 3, Core ML 3, and more. Apple also requires developers to prepare their apps to be fully compatible with all currently supported devices, including the iPhone 11 Pro Max and the new 7th generation iPad.

According to IAB Australia Data, Digital Advertising has Maintained its Strong Growth

IAB Australia | May 24, 2021

The Australian digital advertising market has maintained its high growth rate, rising 25.8% year on year to $2,883 million in the March quarter of 2021. According to the data from the IAB Australia Online Advertising Expenditure Report (OAER) prepared by PwC, retail advertising is on the rise, while classified advertising is on the rebound, reflecting the general health of the Australian economy and growing customer trust. “Digital advertising continues apace, and we're seeing a diversification of the spend into a wider spectrum of opportunities through diverse digital offerings,” said Gai Le Roy, CEO of IAB Australia. There is no question that the Australian economy is recovering, but there is still plenty of space for expansion, with hopes that as borders reopen and supply chains improve, both the travel and automobile segments will increase investment in digital advertising.” All categories saw double-digital growth in the March quarter of 2020, with search and directories up 26.5%, general display up 28.9%, and classifieds up 18.5%. Although retail advertising has maintained a record share of display advertising investment over the last two quarters, it has continued to expand, now accounting for 16.4% of display advertising investment and leading video advertising investment. Finance advertising has also grown in popularity, and real estate has climbed to the top five industry sectors. Travel advertising has begun to recover as a result of the increase in domestic tourism, with both it and automotive advertising slightly higher than in previous quarters. Total video advertisement spending dropped marginally to $572 million in the March quarter, following a record $645 million in the December 2020 quarter. Meanwhile, programmatic trading of content publishers' video inventory rose in the March quarter, reaching 61% of total spending, compared to 34% bought through agencies. As an independent industry association with more than 150 members in Australia and approximately 9,000 globally spanning media owners, publishers, technology providers, agencies, and advertisers, the IAB aims to unite industry stakeholders to develop solutions to market issues and standards that are essential for the operation of digital advertising.

SERVPRO Launches New Advertising Campaign to Reinforce Leadership Position

SERVPRO | November 02, 2021

SERVPRO, the nation's leader in fire and water cleanup and restoration services, will bring its Like it never even happened® brand promise to life in a fun, visually-striking advertising campaign. The new "There's a PRO for That" campaign, which is scheduled to launch on November 1, showcases SERVPRO's industry-leading arsenal of cleaning and restoration capabilities through a series of extreme scenarios that put its services to the test. The new integrated campaign will feature national broadcast TV, OTT/overlays, paid and organic social media, online video (OLV) retargeting, and website content. The inspiration for this campaign comes directly from the amazing work SERVPRO experts do on a daily basis, taking on challenges of any size with an unmatched level of effectiveness. This campaign showcases how SERVPRO makes Like it never even happened® happen. It dramatizes how no matter what might come your way, you can be reassured because SERVPRO always has a pro for that." Mike Stahl, SERVPRO's Chief Marketing Officer The campaign was created by BUNTIN, SERVPRO's lead brand and advertising partner. The team at BUNTIN partnered with Los Angeles-based production house Smuggler, the top-rated production company in the United States, to produce two spots that combined massive in-camera special effects with high-quality post-production enhancements. Award-winning Swedish director Filip Engstrom was tapped to direct this project, bringing his modern aesthetic and expertise in large-scale productions to make the campaign even more impactful. "While we're well-known for our work in fire and water cleanup and restoration, 'There's a PRO for That' also creates a framework for us to promote the other services we offer as well as potential future offerings," Stahl added. In addition to the advertising campaign, SERVPRO is unveiling a brand refresh featuring changes to its logo and several significant updates to its website, including a new "look and feel." This is the first time SERVPRO has updated its logo since 2013. Featuring a new layout, the website changes offer a better user experience by connecting customers to their local SERVPRO location using auto-location detection, which makes the overall site significantly easier to navigate. The site also features new content demonstrating the processes and steps their PROs use to make it look Like it never even happened® happen. "With this brand refresh, we've maintained the legacy attributes of our brand, but given it a modern look and feel. Along with the new brand platform, our work to make our logo more modern, functional and iconic is representative of our system-wide commitment toward maintaining our position as the industry leader," Stahl added. View "There's a PRO for That" campaign here. About the Production A crew of 85 film industry professionals in Los Angeles collaborated in real time with a team of digital effects and cinematography experts in Sweden, carefully following COVID-19 safety protocols over three 12-hour filming days. The production team selected an abandoned factory outside downtown Los Angeles, which also provided the right environment to create a test facility look and feel and to show what SERVPRO experts are capable of doing. The over-the-top nature of the campaign demanded a large versatile production location that could accommodate space for a helicopter to drop a giant water balloon on top of a model home and for an airplane engine to blast the set of a hair salon, as well as tons of gadgets, rigs, engines, extras and SERVPRO experts with their gear, vans, a big-rig truck and specialized equipment. This new campaign replaces SERVPRO's "Whatever Happens" campaign that has been in circulation since early 2019. A separate campaign to promote Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned, an enhanced cleaning program created in response to COVID-19, aired from June through December 2020. About SERVPRO For more than 50 years, SERVPRO has been a trusted leader in fire and water cleanup and restoration services, mold mitigation, biohazard and pathogen remediation. SERVPRO's professional services network of more than 1,900 individually owned and operated franchises spans the United States and Canada, responding to property damage emergencies large and small – from million-square-foot commercial facilities to individual homes. When disaster strikes, homeowners, business owners and major insurance companies alike rely on SERVPRO to make it "Like it never even happened.
