Unfettered by iOS Privacy Settings

With the release of iOS 14, Apple is making yet another big privacy-focused upgrade to iOS. One where users can choose to hide their device’s ID from apps so it can’t be tracked. Something many advertisers, particularly Facebook, aren’t happy about. But despite the uproar of Facebook and a handful of other social giants, there are certain programmatic advertising platforms who aren’t bothered by the privacy news at all. Why? Because, thanks to innovative ad technology, privacy changes such as these don’t negatively affect the targeting abilities of strong programmatic advertising platforms. Platforms like Genius Monkey. But while a few programmatic players may have nothing to fear, social platforms like Facebook can’t say the same and are begrudgingly bracing for impact as these iOS privacy changes draw near.

Luxury Brands Can’t Afford to Ignore Programmatic

For luxury brands, loyal relationships and the revenues they bring in are everything. As Genius Monkey has advocated for years, programmatic doesn’t just sell $10 tubes of makeup and Happy Meals at McDonald’s … it also sells $30,000 diamonds and $500,000 homes. American short-story writer and novelist, F Scott Fitzgerald, famously wrote, “The rich are different from you and me.” Comparatively, high-ticket items are different from other goods, too. They do take longer to sell, but by implementing digital programmatic, the ROI and sales numbers are greatly improved. When it comes to these high-dollar items, they’re practically never an impulse buy, rather the consumer does a great deal of shopping and research.

Human Oversight is Still a Must

AI is a boon to programmatic advertising, and the “intelligence” in artificial intelligence is getting smarter each day. However, because AI algorithms aren’t able to experience emotion or base decisions on gut instinct, there will always be a need for human oversight to help govern AI technology and ensure proper decisions are being made.

This spurred AI into action, prompting numerous programmatic ads for Kobe memorabilia to show up on consumer device screens around the world.

Why Your OTT Mix Should Go Mobile

When the pandemic forced billions of people to stay home earlier this year, over-the-top (OTT) media skyrocketed as consumers began streaming more video content than ever before. This wasn’t entirely surprising, though. With video streaming revenue expected to grow to $30.4 billion by 2024, OTT has been a marketing go-to for several years. But there’s an often-overlooked OTT video platform that’s held strong and steady despite the turbulence of 2020, and continues to climb even still: mobile video ads. As more and more people steer away from linear and smart TV screens in favor of personal mobile device screens, it only makes sense that video ads should do the same.
