Digital Advertising Alliance Announces CCPA Tools for Ad Industry

martechcube | November 27, 2019

The Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA) today announced cross-industry tools for publishers, brands, agencies and adtech in the digital advertising supply chain to provide consumers a clear and recognizable mechanism to opt out under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).The DAA guidance calls for web and app publishers to display a CCPA-mandated text link and a unique icon to California users on their digital properties. Clicking on the link will direct users to publisher information and options, including access to the CCPA Opt-Out Tool if third parties collect and sell data from the property. Consistent with the functionality of the existing DAA choice mechanisms, the CCPA Opt-Out Tools will give consumers broader privacy control than required under the CCPA by allowing them to opt out of the sale of personal information across all of the DAA participating companies integrated into the new tools, from a single website or app.

IAS Research Reveals Ads Placed Alongside Pro-Sustainability Contexts Increase Brand

Integral Ad Science | November 02, 2022

Integral Ad Science (IAS), a global leader in digital media quality, has released the results of its online survey among Australian online users to understand consumer attitudes towards environmental causes and sustainability. Jessica Miles, country manager ANZ at IAS, said, “Our study shows that sustainability needs to play an important role in a brand’s advertising strategy. Consumers not only expect businesses to play a leading role but are more likely to favour a brand that advocates for environmental causes." Jessica Miles, country manager ANZ at IAS, said, “Our study shows that sustainability needs to play an important role in a brand’s advertising strategy. Consumers not only expect businesses to play a leading role but are more likely to favour a brand that advocates for environmental causes. Given this heightened consumer awareness, contextual alignment is critical. Marketers can increase consumer favourability by aligning a positive advocacy message with positive content. Conversely, marketers must be mindful of misinformation or negative sentiment to ensure their reputation is not tarnished. Marketers now have the opportunity to make an impact by actively leveraging their position as storytellers with a strong and credible message and deliver ads in the most relevant environments.” Key highlights: 92% of Australian consumers plan to do more to support environmental causes and help mitigate climate change. People are more engaged with the climate crisis than ever before; consequently, most Australians plan to pursue a more sustainable lifestyle. Avoiding single-use plastics is the most common way consumers demonstrate their commitment to sustainability, with 67% saying they would limit usage. Reducing energy and water consumption to limit carbon footprint (53%) is the next biggest area of focus. 49% of shoppers seek out sustainable products, and 44% say they plan to purchase from brands/companies that support environmental causes. In comparison, 41% begin to reconsider spending on physical items and plan to reduce the number of goods they purchase. Australian consumers place a high priority on environmental causes. The study found that sustainability and climate change remain top of mind and are one of the biggest social issues Australian consumers are concerned about right now after the cost of living crisis. For the world to change, most Australian consumers (90%) recognise that brands and advertisers must actively advocate for environmental causes, sustainability and ways to combat climate change. Almost three-quarters (70%) of consumers have a more favourable view of brands that advocate for environmental causes. Brands benefit most from supporting environmental content. For the study, IAS tested consumer reaction to ads alongside content that was neutral on environmental causes and compared that with reaction to ads alongside content that advocated for environmental causes. Ads with messaging that matches or is related to the content headline show higher favourability for positive/neutral sentiment content. It revealed that a standard ad placed alongside a positively-laden headline advocating for environmental causes benefited from a +90% boost in favourability than the ad would have had alongside a neutral headline.

PROGRAMMATIC ADVERTISING

IAB Europe Announces Results of its Annual Attitudes to Programmatic Research

IAB Europe | October 03, 2022

IAB Europe, the leading European-level industry association for the digital marketing and advertising ecosystem, today announced the results of its annual ‘Attitudes to Programmatic Advertising Study’. Now in its eighth year, this study has become an industry benchmark and helpful insight to show how programmatic advertising attitudes, adoption and strategies are evolving. This year the study tripled in responses with over 1000 industry professionals taking part across 29 markets in Europe. The respondents represent four stakeholder groups – advertisers, agencies, publishers, and ad tech vendors – to ascertain the views and directions from the entire ecosystem. More than half of the respondents across advertisers, agencies and publishers manage annual advertising budgets of €1m or above. Nick Welch, Head of EMEA Programmatic Sales at IAS and Programmatic Trading Committee Chair at IAB Europe said: The “Attitudes to Programmatic Advertising 2022 Study’ serves as an important annual benchmark towards programmatic strategies in digital advertising. The widening of the research shows its focus across various players in the industry from multiple markets. We’re grateful for all the respondents to the study and helping set the agenda for the coming 12 months. Even amongst the backdrop of tightening budgets and further media scrutiny, it’s encouraging to see that investment in programmatic is likely to increase. Alongside this, we’re witnessing tremendous appetite across growing environments such as CTV and audio. However, marketers must play a crucial role in these areas, ensuring that balance is found between optimising media spend, data transparency and delivering a targeted and enjoyable consumer experience.” Positive Outlook Driven by Connected TV All stakeholders (74% of advertisers, 80% of agencies and 68% of publishers) are expecting their programmatic investment to increase over the next 12 months. There seems to be consensus around connected TV as a key growth area; more than 50% of all stakeholder groups cite this as a key to programmatic growth over the next 12 months. Voice, almost non-existent as key to growth in previous years – makes a strong appearance this year with 32% of advertisers and 28% of agencies citing this as a key growth area. Commenting further on the investment trends, James Collins, SVP, Media Network, Rakuten Advertising said “The annual Attitudes to Programmatic Report from IAB Europe is an important indicator for the industry on the opportunities and challenges for programmatic advertising. It’s positive to see that CTV remains the largest growth area for programmatic, with key learnings in this report hopefully the industry can take a step closer to capitalising on this opportunity.” Media Cost Efficiencies Are Key to Investment More than a quarter of advertisers and agencies ranked cost efficiencies as the most important driver for programmatic investment. This is closely followed by granularity of controls and transparency of reporting. Advertisers also cite costs as a barrier to investment; 22% ranked it as the number 1 barrier. Quality of media is also a concern (38% ranked this as the first or second barrier to investment). For agencies, hiring and training staff is a key barrier to programmatic investment. Advertisers Shift from In-Housing to a More Dynamic Approach In 2021 50% of advertisers said they had an in-house model. This seems to have dropped significantly to 16% in 2022. There seems to be a more hybrid or dynamic approach with advertisers tapping into a range of methods such as outsourcing to a DSP, independent trading desk etc. This is perhaps being driven by the struggle to source the correct talent, paving the way for consultancies to play a more vital role in the process. Interaction and Quality Metrics Are Key to Measurement When asked which metrics are important to evaluate display campaigns that are traded programmatically, the majority of advertisers cited social interactions as the most important, as opposed to sales which was the top metric in 2021 (59% vs 37%). For agencies and publishers, it is in delivering quality metrics (60% and 53% respectively) that is most important. Shift in the Type of Data Used for Audience Targeting The study shows a decrease in the use of first-party data alongside an increase in second-party data. Whilst 2021 showed first-party data was the priority for advertisers, agencies, and publishers in 2021, this is now ranked third behind second-party data (the most popular priority averaging 57% with agencies leading at 60%) and third-party at 49%. The report, written by industry experts from IAB Europe’s membership, and forms part of a comprehensive programme of pan-European educational and guidance outputs published by the IAB Europe Programmatic Trading Committee.
