  • Marketers are going to survive Scott Galloway’s ‘post brand era’
    Predictions that brands are useless constructs soon to be bypassed by algorithms relies on a narrow view of the role brands play and the multiple ways they are built. Shann Biglione, head of strategy at Publicis Media explains. Few people would tell CMOs to their face that brands are a dying breed. Of course, this isn’t the kind of prediction Scott Galloway would shy away from. In his well-known interview with Mr Purpose and former P&G CMO Jim Stengel, he summarized very sternly his long-held prognosis for brands: we have entered the “post brand era” which, in Scott Galloway speech, ... read more

  • How agencies can become kinder, more inclusive workplaces
    Despite diversity and inclusion initiatives, the workplace is still a hostile environment for millions of people. As part of The Drum’s Agencies4Growth festival, ad veterans Sue Unerman and Kathryn Jacob sat down to discuss their new book, which tackles belonging in the workplace and offers practical advice on how to overcome barriers.  You’re more likely to become a chief exec if you’re called Steve, than if you have a uterus. Women and minorities make up only 34% of the boards of Fortune 500 companies. One in three of the working population in the UK feel they don’t belong in work. ... read more

  • As YouTube adopts new standards, the transition from brand safety to suitability is accelerating
    Marketers are notoriously wary over where their ads appear online. But the ongoing pandemic and societal upheaval have brought those issues into sharp focus. At the same time, those same marketers are increasingly expected to take a stand on potentially brand-busting landmines like politics and civil unrest. Being a progressive safety first marketer shouldn’t be an oxymoron in the current climate — but it is.  While there’s an abundance of automated ways to keep ads away from incredibly unsafe content, it’s harder for advertisers to identify content at the margins of their standard brand-safety strategies. Each advertiser’s threshold ... read more

  • Digiday Research: Publishers are much less supportive of employee voting than agencies
    If you work at a publisher you probably don’t get any time off to vote in the 2020 elections — but a majority of agency employees do. A survey of 198 professionals working at publishers, agencies and brands found that more than half of agency respondents, and nearly half of brand respondents, said their employer was giving them time off to vote in next month’s elections. Even bigger percentages of agency and brand employees were encouraged to vote this year by their bosses, while just four in ten publisher respondents said they got similar signals. ... read more

  • ‘Very pleasantly surprised’ Google shares results of Privacy Sandbox experiments
    Google on Wednesday published to GitHub results of experiments it has been running to test how Chrome’s Federated Learning of Cohorts (FLoC) proposal could work in practice to allow interest-based advertising to function in a more privacy conscious way and without the need for third-party cookies.

    The shift to streaming is now complete. Around the world, people are spending as much time or more with streaming as they are with linear. With fewer cable boxes and fewer streaming sticks attached to TVs, the smart TV platform is becoming more critical to marketers and advertisers than ever before. But there are significant differences between Dallas and Düsseldorf, and between Melbourne and Mumbai, from population numbers to viewers’ approaches to content. For advertisers, it’s crucial to understand how user adoption varies across the globe.   To start telling the story, Samsung Ads analyzed data from 100 million Samsung ... read more
