[Estimated timeframe:Q1 2018]

... secondary concern when it comes to adopting AI.  

When the first scalable artificial intelligence marketing solutions came to market in 2016, brands adopted them more quickly than agencies.

However, neither brands nor ad agencies rushed to embrace AI because of its shiny packaging.

A meagre 11% response to peer pressure of brand respondents, plus just 8% of ad agencies, explored AI because they wanted to try the latest new marketing tool or exotic technology.

Be that as it may, seven out of ten respondents [brands and agencies] cited “increasing the value of our marketing investment” as a key motivating factor for adopting AI.

Brands, which have greater impetus to control costs [they can’t be passed along to clients] were especially keen on this reason: 83% of respondents, compared with just 58% of agencies, cited cost containment as an important factor.

For agencies, increasing campaign productivity [making themselves look good to clients] moved the needle, while 33% investigated AI systems because their current manual and/or technology-aided efforts had flatlined.

Uncertainty Drives UK Marketers Into Short Term Spending Strategy

Trend Summary: UK marketers lean towards short-term spending strategy.


Uncertain economic conditions in the UK are driving marketers to shift budgets into activation and digital advertising according to the  latest ...

[Estimated timeframe:Q3 2017]

...  Bellwether Report released today by UK advertising body, the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising [IPA].

The report for Q2 2017 is based on data drawn from a panel of three hundred UK marketing professionals, revealing that UK marketers have upwardly revised their internet budgets to the greatest extent since Q3 2007.

The increase in internet budgets fuelled growth in overall marketing budgets, which registered a net balance of +13.1% in Q2, compared to +11.8% in Q1.

Main media advertising also grew, although to a slightly softer degree than in the preceding quarter (net balance: +9.8%, down from +10.7%), as did PR (+2.1%) and events (+2.1%).

Other areas saw reduction, most notably sales promotions, which recorded a net balance of -10.7%, down on the previous quarter’s +1.2%. Reductions in budgets occurred in market research (-6.2%), direct marketing (-4.7%) and ‘other’ (-2.6%).

According to Paul Bainsfair, Director General of the IPA: “The election result has thrown further uncertainty into an already volatile environment".

“Specifically for marketers this has meant a desire, where possible, to seek out more activation-driven advertising. As evidenced strongly in this latest Bellwether Report, this has resulted in a further move towards advertising in the digital space.”

According to Bill Lee, vice president of smart home product marketing at Samsung Electronics America, in addition to connecting to and managing smart home devices, the increasing number of connected devices within homes also requires faster Wi-Fi.

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.

With cross-channel measurement and attribution having fallen between 2015 and 2016, and consumers focusing more on their mobile phones or ahead at the store shelf, the industry has worked harder at cross-channel marketing by incorporating both online and offline tactics, focusing on their customer base.

 

Today, about four in ten retail marketers worldwide said they will implement cross-channel attribution initiatives in 2017.

 

The survey found there were some tactics that respondents said they’d be spending less energy on, including general audience analytics, programmatic media buying for more mature markets and predictive modeling.

... whether the internet titan's instant-order button signals the future of shopping?

Dash was met by a lukewarm response in the US when it launched, with consumers questioning the convenience of receiving 45 toilet rolls at a time! When smart devices don’t turn out to be that smart, consumers can be unforgiving in their analysis.

Amazon is currently rolling out its Dash Replenishment Service [DRS] to the UK. The platform will enable 'internet of things' devices to automatically re-order their own supplies when they run low, with Bosch, Siemens, Grundig, Samsung and Whirlpool adding codes to their connected products to facilitate the deliveries.

The Dash button means consumers can order brands such as Ariel, Andrex and Finish literally at the touch of a button, resulting in less time spent lugging around heavy items in person.

In the UK, Tesco is also exploring automated shopping through a partnership with an online service called If This Then That.
