Cassandra Stevens, global commerce director at Zenith, says with most FMCG companies now realising that ecommerce is important to capture growth opportunities, the only way to grow is to change the way they operate.
Why Reuters Decided to Set Up a Branded Content Studio
Consumers will call brands out of they think they are driving them to a social platform just to transact. Sales teams will focus on product assortment, ecommerce-specific packaging and retailer-exclusivity. Marketing teams will be able to access data to drive more informed optimisations of their media, including sales data from their distribution partners. It will be a talent frenzy, and a very good time to be working in ecommerce. Dr Martens is one brand looking at how social platforms can be used to create their own ecosystem of marketing, social and commerce in one.
Subscription video-on-demand SVoD services like Netflix have been garnering plenty of attention as they colonise global living rooms, but competition is also starting to heat up in for online video ad spend. AVoD platforms present the opportunity for advertisers to marry rich consumer data with pinpoint targeting during engaging content.
Indeed, Amazon kick-started speculation in the summer when it posted a job ad looking for a UK-based executive to lead an ad-funded free-to-air TV offering. For brands, this means a potential explosion of new online video inventory that can host both traditional TV spots and creative tailored for the medium. According to Socialbakers, ad spend on Instagram increased in while decreasing on Facebook, driven by hard-to-rival engagement levels on the photo-sharing platform. While Instagram has a smaller audience size compared to its parent company, its users are far more engaged, suggesting that Instagram is the go-to for capturing quality engagement within smaller communities.
As just a few examples, easyJet recently made it possible for users to find and book holidays simply by clicking on a photo , while Spotify, SoundCloud and Shazam are offering their services via Stories. Expect to see more of this integration in the coming months, especially as Instagram promises to enhance its ecommerce features. Alice Cuffe, editor at We Are Social, says while no one can argue that the specialised and detailed targeting of Facebook is appealing to advertisers, when it comes to creative innovation, Instagram Stories has the edge. Functionalities such as polls, questions, emoji sliders and swipe-up links all provide an easy and immediate way to connect with your audience and allow them to react to your brand in the moment.
The temporary nature of Stories also means brands have more freedom to experiment, without necessarily requiring heavy design work or rounds of internal concepting. Podcasts have been having somewhat of a revival since true-crime podcast Serial burst on to the scene in Last year, in a claimed world-first, digital audio and voice technology company Acast began running personalised podcast ads across its global network of million monthly users and 3, podcasts.
What this looks or sounds like is combining advertiser messaging with data such as the weather, time of day, location, show name, show category or device type to create thousands of unique combinations that can be used to target listeners. Meanwhile, Global, which bought Primesight and Outdoor Plus to add to its radio brands last September, also moved into podcasts at the end of It has already experimented with linking up outdoor and radio advertising to drive campaign outcomes for brands by targeting specific locations and local offers. Using geo-fencing, it can get data on whether someone has walked past a specific store or outdoor ad and then serve them a relevant audio ad while they are listening to a podcast or the radio.
This should be exciting for advertisers. Podcasts are something that people deliberately opt-in to listen to which means they are — for the most part — more engaged than they are with the majority of other mediums. Ads in the form of a message delivered by the podcast host have proved to be an incredibly authentic way for brands to deliver a call to action. Podcasts can also be a great way of telling a story in a richer or different way to how it is told in AV.
The decline of print circulations and challenge to monetise digital advertising revenues has long been putting immense strain on UK news brands. Ad spend with national news brands will decline 9. As such, we should expect to see more publishers shift to subscription-based or membership models to find a more sustainable revenue stream to fund their digital news, meaning there will be fewer traditional opportunities for brands to advertise in trusted news brands. A recent study by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, tracking how digital-born news sites have evolved between and , finds they now face many of the same challenges as legacy media, including the need to establish sustainable funding models, attract new audiences and diversify distribution strategies.
Many others are using freemium models and more are likely to start experimenting with paywalls having seen that consumers are willing to pay for quality news. Although Project Ozone — the joint ad sales house of News UK, the Guardian and The Telegraph — is entering its first full year on a journey to reclaim revenue from Facebook and Google, the wind is increasingly blowing towards subscription. And does it work for every industry? We ask leading CEOs in this session. Research shows that organizations around the world are failing, flailing, or paralysed in their digital transformation initiatives.
Transformation done properly is a risky business. Digital is not the end game but rather an enabler. But this message often gets lost in our drive to adopt the latest digital innovation. This panel will discuss how customer expectations have changed, the digital role in enabling it, and what do customers really want but are not saying.
Can business decisions be done in real-time and make a company truly agile? For many years, companies have relied on historical data to make future strategic decisions. In this session, we will look at how CDOs can use the latest tools to drive real-time decision making. But with digitization, they are beginning to appreciate the vast and exponentially increasing data that in-house IT teams have to deal with.
How can line of business and IT work together to grapple with the vast amounts of data an enterprise can potentially use, and how does a CDO become a bridge between the two?
Mention automation and employees think of replacement. But can you blame them? Many automation and AI tools are sold on how well they replace expensive manual labor. Yet, early adopters of AI and RPA are finding that they are actually helping employees to perform better. This session will look at the augmentation benefits of AI, and how to get your employees rooting for it. Mindset and cultural agility have become just as important as technological know-how.
The CDO is responsible for triggering and overseeing massive internal transformations while ensuring that these are embraced, adopted and used by the intended users.
