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 ... 

[Estimated timeframe:Q2 2017]

... "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.

Performance Media Set To Become the "New Programmatic” in TV Ads

Trend Summary: TV ads in the USA are about to undergo a huge shift in how they are bought and sold. 


The predicted upheaval isn’t only about recent announcements re audience-based TV ads – the OpenAP consortia from Fox, Turner and Viacom, as well as NBCU’s announcement that it would reserve $1bn of its inventory this year for...

... audience based sales. 

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.

... coax advertisers still spending big bucks in TV to look to its platform and audience-linked transactional data offerings, the latter being typically employed for digital advertising, prior to planning TV media buys.

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.

Internet Adspend Will Exceed $200bn In 2017

Trend Summary: Global internet advertising expenditure will grow 13% to reach $US205bn in 2017.


According to Zenith’s latest Advertising Expenditure Forecasts, published today, internet advertising will attract 36.9%  of all advertising expenditure, up from ...

[Estimated timeframe:Q1 2017]

... 34.0% in 2016.

This is the first year in which more money will be spent on internet advertising than advertising on traditional television (the latter totalling $192bn).  

The sheer scale of internet advertising means its growth rate is slowing. Internet adspend grew 17% in 2016, down from 20% in 2015, and Zenith expects growth to slow to 13% in 2017, 12% in 2018 and 10% by 2019 (though it will continue to add US$23bn‐US$24bn a year).

In this environment it is vital that platforms and publishers address advertisers’ valid concerns about viewability and brand safety to secure sustainable growth. As the market matures, advertisers need to know for certain that their ads are being actively viewed by real people in appropriate environments.

According to Adulike's Francis Turner, recently appointed as the firm's general manager and chief revenue officer for the USA: “What Watson garners from these pages goes far beyond what is possible with just keyword and/or data targeting".

For example, instead of targeting specific words such as “lipstick,” Watson enables Adyoulike to include more complex semantics and sentiments such as “this page is talking positively about on-trend lipsticks for summer, plus emotions such as anger, disgust, fear, joy, or sadness.”

Adulike can also target publisher websites matching the Interactive Advertising Bureau category.

... the Amazon platform via desktop PCs, tablets and smartphones.

The ads are muted by default. With a single click, site visitors can choose to view the ads in full-screen mode whist also listening to them. 

Amazon's engineers developed the video ads to follow standards laid down by America's Media Rating Council and the Interactive Advertising Bureau.

Adherence to these standards mean that at least 50% of any advertisement must remain in view for two consecutive seconds. The autoplay feature starts only when the ad is in view, and it automatically pauses when the ad goes out of view.

Amazon's video ads are also on offer in a variety of countries beyond the United States, among them Canada, the UK, France, Italy, Japan, Germany and Spain.

UK Government Urged to Probe Digital Advertising Supply Chain

The News Media Association [NMA], which represents national and local newsbrands in the UK, is requesting the government to take action to ensure that ...

[Estimated timeframe:Q1 2017]

... genuine news outlets can survive. 

According to The Times newspaper, the NMA's request came in a submission to the House of Commons culture committee's inquiry into fake news.

The request comes in the wake of concerns voiced by Procter & Gamble's CMO, Marc Pritchard, as well as a recent Times article about brands unwittingly serving programmatic ads on extremist websites.

Says NMA chairman  Ashely Highfield: "News media publishers are by far the biggest investors in original news content, accounting for 58% of the total UK investment".

He added, however: "But the digital supply chain rewards the distributors of content, not the originators. Government and regulators cannot ignore for ever the impact of the Google-Facebook duopoly on our media landscape".
