It’s Time to Get Personal with Your Players

A recent study by Localytics found that app users are increasingly demanding personalization. They don’t want the same, generic experience as the next person. App users are demanding more personalized content and messages, tailored to their specific behavior, location and intentions. What they want is to feel special. What they want is a relationship.

The truth is you are in a relationship with your players. And yes, it may seem like all they want to do is have fun, not appreciating how hard you work to provide for them. But if you can prove that you are trustworthy, you’ll earn their retained love and engagement.

How do you build trust with your players? A good place to start is through honesty, respect, empathy and communication. Just be careful: Once lost, it can be difficult to earn back.

Mobile Programmatic Advertising: How to Plan for 2016

As mobile marketing and programmatic advertising have grown into effective marketing strategies over the past few years, there are many opportunities for savvy mobile marketers around the corner.

The Renaissance of Creative Work in a Data-driven RTB Advertising World

As RTB continues its exponential growth and surpasses $20 billion in the US next year, humans simply aren’t needed to power deals and manage negotiations the way they once were and advertising professionals are feeling the pinch. Yet while some see this shift as the death knell for the human element in advertising, it can be argued that what we’re seeing now is the creativity renaissance of the ad industry.

Advertising professionals needn’t feel threatened by ever-increasing automation. Time once spent on repetitive tasks has been freed up to invest in creative work at the very moment our creative needs are exploding. Rather than replacing humans on the job, automation has freed up human labour capacity that can be invested in creative to meet the demand for cross-channel, more granular campaigns.

In performance and brand advertising alike, advertisers have always had an overarching message to share and distribute consistently across channels. As those channels have evolved beyond television and print to include myriad digital channels including social, mobile, video and display, ads have become more granular and targeted to evermore-specific audience segments.

What does this creative renaissance mean for advertising professionals and teams? Let’s explore four factors driving the demand for creative talent across the ad industry: audience segmentation, ad sequencing, real-time marketing and data-driven creative.

Why Programmatic Advertising is an Absolute Game Changer for Mobile Advertising

Many websites, including mobile websites, rely entirely on ad revenue to stay afloat. These publishers range from big players, like Google and Facebook, to many smaller single-developer passion-project websites.

Now mobile traffic has eclipsed desktop/laptop traffic and webmasters are struggling to keep their revenue streams flourishing. This article will outline how utilizing programmatic advertising can help mobile apps and mobile websites regain and expand their profitability.
