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.

Lift-Off Predicted for Mobile Media Consumption In 2019

Trend Summary:  26% of media consumption worldwide will be mobile come 2019.


The latest forecast from Zenith Optimedia predicts that people across the world will spend an average of 122 minutes daily in accessing the mobile internet via browsers and apps - an amount that soars from a meagre ...

... ten minutes a day since 2010.  

However, the mobile boost to media consumption is slowing.

Mobile internet consumption increased at an average rate of 44% annually between 2010 and 2016, driven by the spread of mobile devices, improvements in technology and greater availability of mobile-adapted content.

Some of this extra consumption time was cannibalised from traditional media, but the spread of mobile technology has given a boost to overall media consumption by allowing users to access more media, in more places, and at more times than ever before.

The average person spent 456 minutes consuming media in 2016, up from 411 minutes in 2010 – an average increase of 2% per year.

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 ...

... 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.

Trend Summary: Advertisers, agencies, media, government and academia are to convene for a series of open forums.


Dubbed the Advertising Transparency & Trust Forum, the organisers describe themselves as a “non-partisan ad hoc working group” whose sole goal is to discuss the ...

... current state of “trust systems” in the advertising world to see if better business practices can be developed. 

The forum’s agenda is being developed by Jerry Wind, professor of marketing at The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, who is well known for tackling big industry problems.

According to Andrew Susman, vice president of Empower MediaMarketing, a Cincinnati based independent media agency that resigned from the American Association of Advertising Agencies last year when the latter failed to endorse and support media-buying transparency initiatives proposed by the Association of National Advertisers: 

Susman adds: “It’s become apparent that the current situation with no trust has become destructive to all parties”.

US Mobile Adspend Predicted to Double By 2021

Trend Summary: Annual mobile ad spending in the USA will reach $72 billion by 2021.


A new forecast from US media and telecommunications financial consulting firm BIA/Kelsey predicts that by 2021 spending on mobile media in the USA will have increased by ..

Of the overall mobile adspend, the location-targeted portion is projected to grow from last year's figure of $12.4bn to $32.4bn in 2021.

This growth translates to 38% of overall mobile ad revenues today -- growing to 45% by 2021.

According to BIA/Kelsey, one of the biggest mobile success factors for local mobile is "native thinking", which involves building content, apps and ads that fit the device’s unique form factor, as opposed to importing formats from legacy media.
