  • ‘The voice of blind people hasn't been heard’: inside the fight for audio-described ads
    Imagine there was a way to reach hundreds of millions more people with your TV ad by changing nothing at all. Imagine being able to speak directly to the 3% of the US population previously neglected by every other brand. Imagine increasing your media spend by just 0.0001% to boost your audience not marginally, but significantly. The magic strategy does exist, and it lies in the economics of inclusion. If a company produced an audio description of its next ad for British TV, it would immediately reach an extra 2.2 million people – the community of legally blind or partially sighted consumers. ... read more

    What a week! We’ve barely got a toe into 2020 and already folks are whipped into a frenzy over the Google Chrome Privacy Sandbox hysteria, an unexpected sequel to 2019’s Xanax-inducing Safari ITP panic. Many in the media and in our industry are shouting from the rooftops that, yet again, “The sky is falling!” Thankfully, I looked up today and it’s sunny and clear.  Change is hard. It’s the fear of the unknown that spurs these gut reactions that “the DMP is dead!” and “third-party data is dead!”  Nope and nope.  I encourage us all to take a collective breath and assess ... read more

  • ‘Prepare for ICO to utilise its wider powers’: UK regulator issues warning to adtech
    The UK's data regulator, the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO), has issued a warning to any adtech companies which have failed to “use the window of opportunity to engage and transform” their practices - it’s coming for them. The ICO’s update on its investigation into the adtech sector came from the watchdog’s executive director for technology and innovation Simon McDougall, who has led a six-month consultation into the practices around adtech and real-time bidding (RTB) following the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).   He focused on specific issues such as the treatment of “special category data” – like ... read more

  • Adtech: the reform of real time bidding has started and will continue
    The adtech real time bidding (RTB) industry is complex, involving thousands of companies in the UK alone. Many different actors and service providers sit between the advertisers buying online advertising space, and the publishers selling it.  There is a significant lack of transparency due to the nature of the supply chain and the role different actors play. ICO's June 2019 report identified a range of issues. We are confident that any organisation that has not properly addressed these issues risks operating in breach of data protection law. This is a systemic problem that requires organisations to take ownership for their ... read more

  • ANA and 4As say Google’s cookie cull will ‘choke off’ adtech firms’ economic oxygen
    The Association of National Advertisers (ANA) and the American Association of Advertising Agencies (4A’s) have called on Google to think again following its recent decision to block third-party cookies on its Chrome web browser from 2022. For 25 years, third-party browser cookies have tracked the journeys of internet users. These maligned lines of code are unlikely to celebrate a 30th anniversary, however, with Google revealing plans to block them across its Chrome browser by 2022. Given Chrome's mammoth 66% monopoly on the browser market, the move has raised big questions about the future of cross-site tracking, retargeting and ad-serving for the adtech industry. ... read more
