The shift from laptops to mobile devices, becoming first screen in the long-term, is not a secret anymore. Emarketer predicts mobile advertising to represent more than a third of total media ad spending in 2019. Also plista already generated a third of the revenue via mobile inventory in 2016.
One week ago, the Online Marketing Rockstars Festival 2017 took place in Hamburg. It is one of the biggest events within the German digital marketing industry. Obviously, plista was also part of the conference to gather deeper insights on current developments, and participated at the content marketing panel to share our point of view.
2017 has just begun and we are looking forward to this exciting year.
As written in our recap of 2016, even last year was full of news and trends for the digital advertising industry. 2017 promises to be as exciting as the past year.
Buzzwords like globalization, traffic shift to mobile, transparency, ad blocking, programmatic, and so on shape discussions within the digital advertising industry already.
The year 2016 at plista is coming to an end. But before getting to holidays and saying goodbye to the year we want to look back to the past 12 months with a 2016 recap by plista.
The environment of digital advertising is changing fast. This year was full of news, trends, and developments. Now, as 2016 is coming to an end, we are looking back and note four learnings, we want to share with a native view in mind:
Market leaders, global players and future-oriented start-ups from the digital marketing sector made the dmexco 2016 a great success: More than 1,000 companies exhibited on September 14th and 15th in Cologne. Over 50,000 international visitors from the marketing, technology, creative and media sectors used the exhibition and conference as a business and information platform. We were part of this great event and want to outline 5 dmexco trends every marketer should know:
More industry consolidation will lead to native advertising success
Native advertising means one thing to Brits and another thing to a Chinese audience. Europeans consume content differently than Americans. For native content to truly go native, understanding and working with cultural differences is pivotal.
The most recent reinvention of native advertising bridges the gap between native and real-time, data-driven advertising. This represents a better strategy for marketers to understand and engage their target audiences while still relying on the success of content-related marketing approaches such as native advertising. That’s also where programmatic comes in. Publishers and marketers can come together to offer high quality content, enhanced relevancy and unobtrusive advertisements at scale. Check out our infographic to learn how the Rise of Data Driven Native Advertising can help marketers as well as publishers achieve their goals.
Interesting insights about data and technology, great talks and fantastic weather: It was a pleasure to be part of “The Programmatic 401: Creative Convergence” on the 22th of June at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. With top speakers such as Sir Martin Sorell, CEO of WPP, the Xaxis’ event was a huge success and gathered over 175 visitors from the industry.
Nicolas Bidon, Global CEO of plista, participated in the panel “Dynamic Creative & the Power of Self-Assembling Ads” and discussed the link between data and creativity in advertising. Check out the photos and the video here.
