Black Friday and Cyber Monday online sales hit record breaking numbers this year. According to black friday consumer data from eMarketer, online sales surged to $1 billion dollars daily leading up to the weekend, and reached more than $3 billion dollars on Black Friday and again on Cyber Monday. Leading up to this year’s sales, many were skeptical if the infamous holiday shopping weekend still held the same weight. Just as we demonstrated what happens when consumers spend time reading about fashion, we wanted to also examine the power of a sale on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. To do this, we examined a few of the most popular mobile devices and tablets—a common Black Friday and Cyber Monday purchase—and measured them up to their deals on the day. Here is what we found. During the last quarter, the iPhone steadily remained a front runner in terms of how much […]
The article below originally appeared in Masterclassing on October 24, 2016. The online video market is booming: According to eMarketer, brands are on track to double the amount of money they spend on digital video promotion by 2019. As consumers spend more time on their phones and laptops, brand advertising dollars are shifting from TV accordingly and marketers are looking for the best way to distribute their videos across the web. Pre-roll advertising may have been the logical first step for brands as they translated 30-second TV spots onto the digital web, but such formats have proved ineffective at actually reaching an engaged audience. Innovative online marketers are instead experimenting with new formats that are “native” to the page, existing side by side with relevant content, rather than interrupting it, while providing value to users and advertisers alike. In the realm of online video, native has proven to be one of […]

With November fast approaching, political campaigns need to start thinking about how they’re going to implement a content strategy leading up to election day. Political advertising is often associated with the 30-second TV spots many of us have already grown sick of, digital content gives candidates and interest groups a chance to interact with voters in a completely different environment. Rather than blasting people with a message they’re not interested in during the commercial breaks, content discovery allows campaigns to build trust with their audience by giving them useful information they can choose to engage with and consume at their leisure. In addition, the digital ecosystem provides measurement, personalization and content creation tools that simply aren’t available in the slow-moving world of traditional media. With this in mind, here are three ways political campaigns can turn content marketing into their secret weapon this fall: Use digital measurement to optimize for […]

If internet advertising is the wild west, targeting is a great Sheriff to keep your numbers and metrics in check. That being said – targeting can often be flawed.

By putting your value proposition out into the world, users can opt-in and self-select merely by […]
