BBVA USA Launches a New Ad Campaign Designed to Highlight the Bank's Efforts in Helping People and Businesses in Pandemic Recovery
BBVA USA has launched a new ad campaign designed to highlight the bank's efforts in helping people and businesses take the first steps in their recovery from the pandemic and reach financial milestones in the future. The campaign, entitled "Your Bank for…," is centered around a message of resilience during a time of financial uncertainty, highlighting the bank as a responsive partner and valuable resource. Advertisements launched on TV, radio, digital and social media platforms on August 10 in multiple media markets, with some markets featuring the ads solely on digital and social channels. "We want our customers and potential customers to see BBVA USA for what we are - a compassionate bank that creates opportunities for everyone in any situation," said BBVA USA Chief Marketing Officer Enrique Cornish Stanton. "Our commitment to helping our communities has been demonstrated throughout the pandemic, and that won't slow down as we move forward as a society. Our 5-year strategic plan places a strong emphasis on financial health, and our actions demonstrated that dedication throughout 2020. This ad campaign further amplifies that message." The campaign includes two advertisements, both 15 seconds in length, both featuring life events for businesses and consumers, and a voiceover that promotes BBVA as "your bank for life's opportunities". One advertisement targets a small business audience, and one is for a consumer-focused audience.

Alright, alright, alright! We give up. We'll write about native advertising. If there's any one thing the advertising industry is good at, it's putting a shiny new wrapper on something that's been around for a very long time. Take, for example, Native Advertising. As described by digital ad firm Solve Media, "Native advertising refers to a specific mode of monetization that aims to augment user experience by providing value through relevant content delivered in-stream."

IAB Research Finds that Brands Benefit from News Ads

IAB | November 02, 2020

News has always played a critical role in the lives of consumers. In 2020, the importance of timely, trusted news was amplified as everyone sought updates related to the global pandemic, social injustice, economic uncertainty, and the impending Presidential Election. However, while news outlets experienced record viewership, readership, and listenership, advertising dollars had not increased in a commensurate way. In fact, some brands had backed away from advertising on these platforms, citing brand safety and brand suitability fears. To understand if these concerns were well-founded, Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) along with Magid Research embarked on a landmark consumer research study, "The News Trust Halo: How Advertising in News Benefits Brands," to understand how consumers feel about brands that advertise adjacent to news.

Mediaocean Acquires Flashtalking For A Reported $500 Million

Mediaocean, Flashtalking | July 19, 2021

Mediaocean will buy independent global ad server Flashtalking to establish a "neutral tech platform" with a combined annual media spend of $200 billion. According to The Wall Street Journal, it will pay $500 million for the New York-based company, which has annual revenue of between $100 and $150 million. Mediaocean provides advertising workflow software that drives $70 billion in television advertising in the United States, but it is also actively pursuing programmatic opportunities. The deal with Flashtalking comes exactly a year after it paid $200 million for programmatic buying platform 4C. 4C has integrations with Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Amazon, and other platforms, placing Mediaocean squarely in the programmatic arena. The acquisition will combine Flashtalking's ad serving, creative, identity, and verification capabilities with Mediaocean's media planning and buying capabilities across desktop, mobile web, in-app, and CTV/OTT. It is expected to close in the third quarter of this year. Integrating Flashtalking's dynamic creative optimization with the 4C solution, in particular, will enable marketers to utilize dynamic creative in both open and walled gardens. In addition, the merged platform will have over a trillion monthly ad impressions. In 2018, Mediaocean and Flashtalking partnered to connect ad serving data with media buying. As CTV adopts some of the features of new media's walled gardens, the companies emphasized the independence of their integrated tech platform as an alternative to Big Tech providers such as Google's ad server.
