With today’s easily accessible way of consuming content online, moving content is one of the many rising trends that increasingly improves in hooking online users. This is due to the convenience that videos bring forth toward viewers. eMarketer research states that the average time spent watching digital videos a day in the U.S. started at 61 minutes in 2015. This number is projected to go up to 81 minutes by 2019. Thus, publishers are migrating over to putting out more moving content on social media sites such as Facebook and Instagram as well as on their own sites. Moving content, or videos, on publisher sites are interesting and beneficial for many reasons. Today, we will have a look at why publishers are increasingly using video content and why you should too.
As we start a fresh year, we continue to build onto 2017’s happenings in the digital advertising industry. We recently reflected on 2017’s trends and buzzworthy topics.
Many trends have helped transform both advertisers’ and publishers’ tactics of target reach to earn more revenue. This is due to the rising demographic of mobile device users. Increased ad spending as well as data insights and personalization were also a few among these transforming trends.
The change of majority device usage from “traditional” desktop to mobile has left publishers and advertisers to consider two ways of reaching their target users: through creative and native ad formats. That said, we would like to share some projections of what 2018 will bring to the digital advertising industry.
Today, we are back in discussing the hot topic of programmatic advertising. We recently had a look at how this automated buying method yields a great advantage to advertisers who bid on coveted ad slots on various publisher sites. We mentioned that the rapid growth of mobile device use is one of the main reasons why advertisers should go native with programmatic; through this method, advertisers have a more refined target reach. Since we are familiar with the advertisers’ perspective on going native programmatic, what does it mean for the publishers, who are opposite the process?
2017 has been an incredibly transformative year for the digital advertising industry. Global advertisers and publishers had the opportunity of experiencing shifts impacting the industry, such as increased ad spending budgets to the rise of mobile users. Groundbreaking trends and topics that stuck around soon became household names such as going programmatic and transparency .
This past year has also been full of change for us at plista. We launched our new SSP integration as well as announced our new global managing director, Michel Gagnon.
Let’s have a look at an overview of 2017 and reflect on the memorable moments that have occurred this last year.

What kind of titles generate longer reading times? When readers have seen a title and have decided to read the story, it is because they want to know more.
