Commerce, Data, and Advertising’s Final Frontier: Defining the Currency of Today’s Programmatic Marketplace

It’s time to “stop the nonsense”. We have the capability to tie digital activation to actually, real-world, offline business outcomes. We are way beyond the click. The world is moving from venture backed companies to private equity and that means desired outcomes are value and margin not just exits. “Playing to win is a different game than playing to sell”.

Data-Driven Marketing: The End-Game of Automation: What does it mean, and how do we get there?

Building a results-oriented, data-driven marketing strategy requires laser-focus on four crucial components: data and measurement; people and process; technology and tools; media and creative.

A well-defined consumer journey helps showcase the strategic role of programmatic creative in driving customer experience and unites teams over a common goal.

Why Connected TV is Here and Now

Data Deep-Dive: Segments, Models, Measurement and More

Data is not just the realm of the data scientists; you need to understand and be fluent in data terminology. Probabilistic and deterministic data are both first-party, just different aspects of it. CDP and DMP are different: your customer data platform and your data management platform need to perform in different ways.

Busting Myths about Programmatic TV/Video: What’s Hype, Hyperbole, and What’s Actually Happening?

There are many myths, misunderstandings, and a lot of confusion about digital video and OTT. It’s important to remember:

  • Vertical video is highly effective with completion rates around 80%.
  • “VPAID” is not synonymous with “viewability”.
  • Programmatic is not simply for flat standard units. Highly interactive advertising can be part of the programmatic funnel.

GDPR (And Other Things That Go Bump in the Night)

GDRP will turn the collection of digital data from an opt-out market to an opt-in one where consumers opt-out by default. Under GDPR, users have the right to access, port, correct and erase their data. If you don’t respond to their requests, you are breaking the law, and penalties are severe.
