Guide to Influencer Content Marketing

Influencer content marketing is partnering with content creators who have their own audience to create content that helps to deliver on your marketing objectives.

Edition #283 Home buyers and their adtech taxes

Inspired by a tweet from Hunter Walk, this week at the very bottom we’ve added a few newsletters we dig. Please do check them out and give them a try. One big thing I didn’t really comment on the revenue sharing piece a few weeks back. Wanted to mull on it for a bit as I felt too much nuance was left out of the conversation. To recap, PWC after completing a two-year study found;… Continue reading

Edition #281 Brands inevitable DTC future

One big thing Even PlayStation is going direct to consumer with the launch of Playstation studios, ahead of the PS5 launch. “Sony has developed a new umbrella brand to unite its first-party PlayStation titles. The PlayStation Studios brand will go live in PlayStation 4 and 5 games later this year, and will only be featured on games developed and managed by Sony Interactive Entertainment's Worldwide Studios organization.” It’s not that they will now produce games… Continue reading

Edition #280 Brand Balance Sheets, 5/8

One big thing As we transition to the new normal, those brands that are spending, are starting to invest in marketing assets. Assets like app installs, newsletter subscribers, upper-funnel audience, training, webinar attendance. “The roughly $40 billion app-install market was “likely the most material contributor this quarter” to social media ad spend, according to Morgan Stanley analysts.” And why not, with attention up and cost per clicks down, it's a perfect storm.

Edition #279 Weird Earnings, 5/1

One big thing What the stock market got wrong this week. Alphabet, Google, Facebook and Twitter were all up after earnings after most analysts expected a bigger hit to revenue. Yet for most firms, the virus was only an impediment for a fraction of the quarter. Advertisers won't have cut straight away – behavior would be distributed through that timeframe. What should be in focus, is how they are addressing Q2. And that speaks to the uncertainty, see below. Continue reading

This Week in Native Ads 2/28

One big thing Thoroughly enjoyed the content/campaigns this week from Patagonia and The Trade Desk. Brilliant. We saw this paired with Comcast acquiring Xumo. The extension, or working harder of branded content, through to OTT is a no brainer – especially when the quality of production means it is a realistic opportunity. Notable stories this week Influencers are starting to add paywalls, or going their close friends list for a fee. WSJ is launching a… Continue reading

Gustaf here. Still covering for Ben, who’s not back until next week. I know… but we can get through this together, I promise! One big thing It's Valentine’s Day. When we peek under the hood at Nudge data, we notice that consumers are spending 69% longer on quizzes during Valentine’s. Curious. For more insights, such as the best time of day to advertise during the Feast day of Saint Valentine, give our… Continue reading
