  • alanking.org 10/13
  • alanking.org 10/13 • It’s harder than ever to get the attention of digital audiences • We live in a world where people use mobile devices to search for and access content; as we shift to a world of mobile devices, the ad experience and units we are used to on desktop will not work • In many cases we are shoehorning an 18 year old format onto a platform that didn’t exist 6 years ago • The answer is to provide the user with meaningful and important content; native to device and environment and totally based on relevance • It has to scale so the technology to hand must deliver the content programmatically • Are publishers geared up for this? Does the ad delivery tech exist? The ad business MUST evolve

  • alanking.org 10/13 MobileProgrammatic Content marketing Smart Content Adding content to the big trends reveals the sweet spot
  • alanking.org 10/13 Smart Content 1.Is information (blogs, whitepaper, educational video, podcasts) 2.Makes the task easier (branded utilities) 3.Is entertaining (video, lists, pictures, stories)
  • alanking.org 10/13 "We're not really selling ads, we're promoting their (Brands’) content.“ Lee Brown: Head of sales - Tumblr
