2012 – Laying the foundationsIt was about trading, ATDs, technology, productdevelopment, structures, platform development,content distribution, out-sourcing, learning, up-skilling and processes= A year of planning
2013 – Building a premium futureBuilding on the fundamental actions of 2012, the(media) empires strike back, the resurgence ofthe media brand, better quality solutions,smarter data management, more innovation,more content deals, better platform integration= A drive for greater engagement
Agency Consolidation The rise of ‘central services’ and of the ‘business/ planning’ agencies !Smarter desks, agency DMPs, fewer deals. Contact confusion. A bigger/better role in 2013 for agencies with their clients! *Other desks and agencies also impact this market. Logos above are examples only
Small data Media owners will make smarter use of vertical, ﬁrstparty data and audience extensions to stage a ‘premium ﬁght back’! Quality audience + mass reach extension now possible,single customer view, disassociation of media and data key. Need to understand the revenue opportunity and the risks.!
E-commerce enters the media world Better use of e-commerce data within media will behugely motivational (and also terrifying) for the market. Expect a big push for budget in 2013. ! A real challenge to the existing order. The emergence of‘commercially driven display’. You need to know the value of your data (and an ability to monetise it) in this ecosystem!
Further blurring of market deﬁnitions Deep consumer data, programmatic media and a more liquid market, will help blur the lines between client, media owner and agency. More brand trading desks. ! Genuine challenge to traditional relationships, roles andoperations. Re-assessment of how you can use ‘recent’ data. Importance of specialism/vertical. Smarter consumer VRM? !
The rise of commercial content Agencies & advertisers will be more committed to driving digital brand spend by creating and trading content! Content in the media mix a scale reality. Greater focus on ability to sell, measure and implement content. Re-assessment of media owner commercial models and creating multiple revenue streams from the same assets.!
Further evolution of High Impact Formats The desire for engagement will make ‘High Impact Formats’ evolve even further !Expect more solus ads, additional innovation and a morecompetitive market. Scalability in this market = big spend increase. Format selection and development is key. !
Video market driven by insight A renewed desire for incremental reach from uniﬁed research in video. Bringing together fragmented hardware and distribution the key market focus. ! Total x-platform reach by plan/programme, engagingformats, increase in single buying/reporting requirements. Is there a role for your business in this video market?!
The growth of native advertising The desire to innovate within premium environmentswill mean a much greater focus on ‘native’ advertising!All parties looking to add unique value. Programmatic world =scale opportunity. Sales proposition question marks for mediaowners. Editorial/sales collaboration. Who owns the creative!?!
Phase 3 of mobile advertising We’ll see more native ads (FB, Twitter), location (O2/ Weve) and more integrated campaigns in 2013 ! 2013 will see 75% of us with a smartphone. 1bn of those worldwide. Mobile is 10% of our time but only 1% of media spend. The iPad alone is bigger than McDonalds. Mobile is 18% of search. FaR Pool shows 26% of media owner imps accessed by mobile but < 10% of revenue, 43% of Marketers think it is the number 1 priority for 2013. I could go on…!Acceleration of responsive design. Content = Advertising. Signiﬁcant closing of the gap between consumer usageand budgets through higher quality planning and creative.!
The emergence of the “media non-owners” A change from smart consumer products, to smart communication products ! New ad formats. Greater collaboration between this world and ‘traditional’ media owners. Spotlight on contentdistribution (and where ‘ad’ messages end up). New models available for content monetisation if you get it right. !
More ‘personalisation’ and ‘automagic’ Data and data partnerships helping create more tailored content and commercial solutions !Huge drive for single sign-in/customer views. An ability to monetise that at scale. More data/b2b partnershipsopportunities. Consumer buy-in to personalisation means ‘personalised media planning’ a reality. !
