Leveraging the Power of Linkedin for Marketing/Sales Professionals

Social Fatigue. It’s becoming very real. In the B2C and B2B world, both consumers and marketers are at a point of exhaustion. There is currently more content than eyeballs across every major social platform and we have all seen those crazy statistics about how much video is uploaded to YouTube per day. How can anyone realistically keep up with that? Outside of savvy audiences knowing exactly how to opt-in to the right cadence and clients for intel, the rest of the public needs the platform to curate and/or algorithmically…

In-House vs. the Agency Model – Advertising’s Red Herring Debate

In today’s Advertising market, the modus operandi is efficiency and control. Brands want control so that they can be as efficient as possible; after all, being a ‘cost-centre’ in the midst of such a challenging retail environment is no fun at all. For some, taking control of spend has involved bringing advertising in-house; 64% of marketers now have an in-house agency, up from 42% in 2008. That’s more than a 50% increase in the last decade. But, this is an absolutist debate and a total red herring. The real question isn’t…

MarTech Interview with Tessa Court, CEO, IntelligenceBank

"Marketing Resource Management is pretty much the same thing as Marketing Operations, but it has a budget and planning component." Tell us about your journey into Marketing Technology. Since the age of 16, I knew I wanted to get into marketing – specifically, global advertising. I worked in global advertising in New York City for several years.   When technology came onto the scene, there was a massive exodus of agency people going into martech as new technologies created infinite possibilities for not only creating…

TechBytes with Dom Fortin, CTO, district m

Tell us about your journey into the digital technology industry? My journey into the digital really started in my early 20s - in 1999, I enrolled in a Software Engineering program. Throughout my university years, I worked as a web developer as a sideline to make a little bit of cash and one summer, a couple of friends and I decided to launch a dating website, as it had just become a huge trend. This is where I started to understand the importance of online advertising, as it ended up bringing us a huge chunk of our…

In a Performance-Driven Economy, Customer Acquisition Takes Center Stage

It’s getting harder and harder to relate to John Wanamaker’s famed quote regarding the ROI of advertising. For more than 100 years, marketers enthusiastically nodded along to the notion of, "Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is, I don't know which half.” But these days, the notion of blind investment in customer acquisition initiatives has become a foreign concept to most. Today’s marketers, particularly on the media-buying side, have access to powerful tools that have shed greater light on the…

The Current State of the Ad Tech and Martech Industries

As it stands today, the advertising and marketing tech industries are broken and have been for years. This might sound shocking, given that $8.8 billion of VC money was invested in martech in 2017 alone. But despite the investor interest in these industries, the fact is that the creation of a middle layer consisting of advertising infrastructure between brand and consumer has exacerbated the problems of fraud and money being spent in all the wrong places. To solve these problems, the industry needs players that can ensure…

Programmatic Is Not a KPI

Talking to the CMO of a well-known retailer earlier this year, I heard a familiar viewpoint; “I guess we’ll have to look into doing programmatic soon. Everyone else seems to be doing it.” Well, she wasn’t wrong. With over 80% of display ads traded programmatically this year and spend expected to reach $65 billion by 2020, the majority of brands are utilizing this technology, but is following the crowd reason enough to invest? In short, the answer is no. If a company’s programmatic goals extend no further than adoption,…

The Most Overlooked Necessities of Branded Content

Although native advertising and content marketing are not new concepts, growth in both areas has been impressive in recent years—and that growth shows no signs of waning. In 2018, BI Intelligence estimates that native advertising revenue in the US will hit $21 billion, up from $17.3 billion in 2017. But despite growth, the development and distribution of branded content has never been as confusing and complicated as it is today. Content distribution options, both paid and otherwise, have proliferated, and yet firm…
