In the survey — conducted by the same Global Intelligence team that undertakes the agency’s spending forecasts — clients were asked how confident they were that their business categories would experience growth this year.

Each category was then ranked on a scale of 0 to 100, where 100 means everyone surveyed in their category expects substantial growth, and 0 means that all surveyed expect substantial decline.

A rank of 50 means the average expectation is for no growth.

People-Based Marketing Overtakes Personalisation

... silo-ed channel execution.

According to Nick Keating, director EMEA, BounceX, there are essential differences between personalisation and 'People-Based Marketing'.

Consumer behaviour outpaces technology, Keating believes. With no way of uniquely identifying consumers throughout their buying journey, retailers are being left out of the loop as they continue to market to anonymous shoppers with blanketed offers.

However, the next generation of marketing technology is changing the game.

From analysing consumer behaviours, identifying purchase intent, and identifying previously anonymous visitors, to customised digital experiences and sophisticated behavioural profiling, people-based marketing is set to transform the timing, relevance and value of customer interactions.

According to Bill Lee, vice president of smart home product marketing at Samsung Electronics America, in addition to connecting to and managing smart home devices, the increasing number of connected devices within homes also requires faster Wi-Fi.

Says Lee: “Today’s smart homes have the power to deliver simple and efficient automation, but as families stream more content and buy more connected devices, it’s a struggle to get fast, reliable and extendable Wi-Fi coverage."

Enthuses Mr Lee: "With Samsung Connect Home, we’re redefining the whole home network to finally offer families a simple solution that expands Wi-Fi coverage throughout the home while offering the ability to monitor, automate and control smart devices using Samsung SmartThings.

Marketing Mammoths Unite to Block Annoying Ads

Trend Summary:  Google's Chrome browser will soon come with preinstalled technology that will block the most annoying ads.


IT titan Google annouced yesterday [June 1] the launch of a tool dubbed The Ad Experience Report. The tool will basically score a publisher's site and inform them which of their ads are deemed to be ...

... "annoying experiences."

Google's move, anticipated since word got out in April, will impact the entire advertising ecosystem because Larry and Sergey's Chrome is the world's most popular web browser for desktop and mobile users alike.

According to Sridhar Ramaswamy, senior VP of ads and commerce at Google: "We've all known for a while that the ad experience is a real problem, that has confused and angered users".

"We realised that solutions such as ad blockers punish everybody, including publishers who develop great content and are thoughtful about the ad experience they put on their site."

However, Google isn't calling its technology an ad blocker, instead classifying it as a "filter" that removes the ads that consumers hate most.

The hate list include pop-ups, ads that flash quickly, change colors or force people to wait ten seconds before accessing content on a publisher's page.

The plan to install such software on Chrome is a result of work by the Coalition for Better Ads, whose members include Google, Procter & Gamble, Unilever, WPP's GroupM, Facebook, Thomson Reuters and The Washington Post along with the Interactive Advertising Bureau and the Association of National Advertisers.

... time for those who hesitated to take another look.

Google positioned Instant Apps as an on-boarding tool for new users of the full app. However, marketers will now also have the ability to provide a slimmed-down version that may suffice in scenarios like one-day visits to a city or attendance at a two-day music festival.

These apps appear in Google search results and there could be multiple versions of the slimmed down app in order to match the users search term and needs.

The experience is seamless to the user and will create a new vector to generating a sale or an app install.

The ability to execute a transaction in the app may actually downplay the need for a full install in some instances. The difficulty of getting a full app into an instant app will vary; Google provided a 4 to 6 week level of effort.

According to MediaPost journalist Dave Morgan, this change isn’t just about the big recent announcements about audience-based TV ads. Morgan believes that something even more fundamental is happening in media, and it’s going to have its biggest impact on TV.

The future of TV will be about performance. As media legend Alan Cohen proclaimed when he took over as president-Ceo of independent agency Quigley-Simpson earlier this year: “Performance media is where it’s at. It’s the new programmatic.”

Cohen also believes that performance media will dominates digital advertising, because it can be measured and optimised that way. And performance is what marketers truly want, fundamentally, when they buy.

Says Joe Kyriakoza, VP and GM of automotive at Oracle Data Cloud, "This is our first big move into the TV space".

Explains Mr Kyriakoza: "To put the partnership to use, an auto advertiser might work with Simulmedia to target luxury SUV buyers. The TV data firm would connect its viewer data to Oracle's data on in-market SUV buyers, which it obtains through several purchase transaction data relationships with credit card firms, research firm IHS Automotive and others.

Oracle can also layer-in a brand's own CRM data and push it through Simulmedia's system. All of which helps marketers to determine where on TV to best allocate their budgets.
