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.

Fraud and Ad Blockers Threaten Integrity of Digital Metrics

... integrity of every other performance and effectiveness metric in digital marketing.

Writing in the most recent edition of the Journal of Advertising Research, Gian Fulgoni, Co-Founder and Chairman Emeritus of comScore, cited a recent Association of National Advertisers report which estimates that in 2016 marketers will waste some $7bn globally, buying online ads that people never see.

Moreover, added Mr Fulgoni: "Advertisers, agencies, and publishers alike feel the pain of IVT while the fraudsters benefit."

"For media buyers, the negatives include wasted advertisement spending and decreased return on investment, lack of transparency into the drivers of performance and missed opportunity for advertisements to have an impact."

"Meanwhile, advertising on premium publisher sites offers marketers the benefits of lower fraud, higher viewability and greater sales impact. The use of branded content is one possible remedy."

Neuroscience Boosts Mobile Marketing

Trend Summary: Neuromarketing scientists have created algorithms that can decipher how people feel whilst watching an ad.


According to AdWeek.com staff writer Marty Swant, the human mind has been a mystery since the beginning of time and, since the dollar-strewn dawn of advertising, marketers have tried to solve the conundrum via the necromancy of ...

... neuromarketing.

However, it's only during the last decade that neuromarketing has taken-off, with scientists studying the minutia of human response to TV spots, print ads and desktop promotions.

Moreover, now that iPhones and Samsung Galaxies have become ubiquitous, the world of neuromarketing is shifting its focus to unlocking the impact of mobile media.

Says Carl Marci, chief neuroscientist at Nielsen Consumer Neuroscience: "We're realising that as the world gets more cluttered, and there's more competition for the hearts and minds of audiences, we really need the best tools to measure the whole consumer".

A recent report by Nielsen for the Advertising Research Foundation revealed that branding resonated less with users on smaller screens, while only 29% of smartphone users viewing 30-second video ads on their devices watched them in their entirety.

Although that percentage is greater than the 17% who viewed on a tablet or laptop, it's much less than the 84% on a TV or 83% on a desktop computer.

Mobile Video Forecast to 'Eat the World'

MarketingTrendTracker Summary: Mobile video, driven by mobile programmatic, is poised to rock the digital world in 2016.


Top line numbers show that mobile video viewing in the US is already eating into desktop’s leading share of video views, a migration attributable to the advance of high-speed 4G mobile networks which reduce latency, making mobile video more accessible and enjoyable for ...

... more consumers in more markets.

Research firm eMarketer reports that in the USA alone, one in three consumers watch video on their mobile devices, implying that watching video on mobile devices is already more common than using these devices to listen to music.

There’s also mounting evidence that people who watch video on their smartphone are giving it their full attention.

Moreover, recent research from Google and Ipsos Mori (based on a survey of 1,519 smartphone owners in the 18-34 age group who kept detailed diaries of all of their online and offline video interactions) suggests that watching video on smartphones is “far less distracted than it is on TV.”

Specifically, watching video on TV was the sole activity for Millennials for just 28% of the time.

The rest of the time the survey sample were watching TV whilst multi-tasking—eating, texting, chatting to a friend, or even cooking.

In contrast, watching mobile video was the sole activity for over half (53%) of respondents.

New Technolopgy Enables Marketers to Measure Mobile Ad Response

Trend Summary: New technology enables marketers to run studies to ascertain how people respond to their mobile ads.


To enable brands to quantify the impact of mobile ads after they're displayed to consumers, WPP Group offshoot Medialets is linking its ad-targeting technology to the group's Millward Brown Digital brand-lift studies. After serving a mobile ad, marketers will be able to run a study to ascertain whether or not the ad is remembered by it's ...

[Estimated timeframe:Q1 2016 Onward]

... target audience.

This is manna from heaven for marketers who have struggled for years to prove that mobile advertising is effective, largely because smartphone-size campaigns lack the same measurement and targeting capabilities expected by desktop advertisers.

Says Richy Glassberg, Medialets ceo: "What marketers are concerned about today is the staggering shift from desktop to a mobile device".

Glassberg also notes that "In the last two to three years, mobile has taken 60% of all digital usage, but the spending is so far behind. The tools that they use in desktop aren't translating to mobile."

Instead of using cookies, Medialets' technology anonymously tracks mobile IDs to help advertisers target specific groups of consumers. After identifying that someone saw an ad, brands can run follow-up surveys with questions like "Do you remember the ad you just saw?" or "How likely are you to buy the product you just saw advertised?"

Marketers Urged to Learn Lessons from Ad Blocking

Trend Summary: Ad blocking is the latest development to shake the digital marketing industry.


Apple’s recent move to make ad blocking available on its iPhones has sent shockwaves through the digital world,despite the fact that the biggest ad-blocking app of its type has now been pulled from the IT titan's app store. There is an upside, however, given that this topic is shedding vital light on online advertising, thereby compelling marketers to ...

[Estimated timeframe:Q4 2015 onward]

... review their current strategies behind ad serving online.

According to a recent blog posting by the Internet Advertising Bureau's Jed Mole, the point here is not to focus on what is taken away – but what is gained.

This, Mole posits, leads us to data and insight. What does it mean if an individual does, or does not choose to block ads?

Answering his own question Mole argues: "If decades of direct marketing experience across physical mail, phone and online advertising tells us anything, it’s that this act alone cannot and should not be taken as an implicit opt-in or indeed opt-out of all kinds of channel communication".

"The context is the crucial piece of information, the kind of insight only data connectivity can deliver, ie the ability to connect online and offline data across all devices to create a real view of the customer".

"Furthermore, does opt-out on mobile ads mean other channels become that much more valuable? Does it put more of a premium on social, on display, on sponsored links? What does it mean for naysayers against online – and offline – native advertising techniques? This digital insight to optimise campaigns is driven by effective customer data analysis".

"Finally, the very best ways to ensure a better future for marketers and consumers alike is for marketers to continuously strive to improve their ability to deliver relevant, consistent communications through connected data but, in the meantime, to encourage a balanced perspective."
