This Week in Native Ads 4/19

Colin Nagy of creative shop FF here covering for Ben while he is down in NZ. A quick insight to lead off the newsletter this week: it has been fascinating to watch how much migration there has been in recent months to small, niche private networks. Just at the beginning of the web when interest groups self-organized around topics and passions on message boards and forums, the same seems to be happening… Continue reading

How the Growing Audio Space can Avoid the Missteps of the Web

Spotify recently doubled down on audio with the acquisition of Anchor, the WordPress for audio, as well as Gimlet Media which has positioned itself as premium, narrative storytelling delivered via podcast. And they’ve earmarked $500 million for future acquisitions which is undoubtedly a catalyst for the entire audio ecosystem to invest and build new models. To date, we’ve seen the hardware and ecosystem side of voice heating up with the rise of Alexa, HomePod, Google Home, etc. We’ve seen… Continue reading

This Week in Native Ads 4/12

There will be a little bit of a hiatus for two weeks as I travel down under. One big thing I admire the cheekiness and creativity of Juan, remixing vines on YouTube, to continue making money from the content. Permissions here are a problem. But for an enterprising mind, there are lots of ways to pursue your passion, on your own terms. Most of us in this newsletter are in the industry weeds but it is pretty neat that… Continue reading

This Week in Native Ads 4/5

One big thing Google is in a difficult place with Chrome, Safari has ITP (privacy protection), as does Firefox and if they don’t level set, they risk losing market share. Such a change would threaten a lot of ad tech, especially anything that relies on third party cookies. AdWeek has a piece on how they’re between a rock and hard place, and AdExchanger digs in to what it could look like. Continue reading

Digital Content NewFronts is coming up, if readers have invites, would love to join a couple more sessions. 🙂 One big thing There were a lot of smirks this week about Apple News+. But Apple is smart, especially at research and consumer segmentation. There will be more than enough people who don’t presently subscribe to anything, that bat away subscription notifications, who will be interested. Like HBO you just need three or four titles to… Continue reading

This Week in Native Ads 3/22

Each week, we look through the stories, and it is a balance of programmatic vs native vs content vs media. But since we started the newsletter, these have all become intertwined (which is a good thing). I just wanted to call that out, for those that might have been wondering if we were covering less of one or another. The market is maturing and evolving. As evidenced by some of the stats below. Berlin readers, our own… Continue reading
