IC Media Direct Predicts Simpler Advertising Techniques in 2018

The rise in adblocker software saw a large increase of native advertising among websites and publications.

New York, NY - April 16, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

Public relations firm, IC Media Direct, believes the future of digital advertising in the coming year will actually be more familiar to most than ever before. In fact, IC Media Direct leaders believe this year many advertisers will revert to more conventional methods of advertising. Recent adaptations to online methods have changed how marketers shape the future marketing landscape and have major effects on companies who work to get their brand message across through conventional methods. IC Media Direct emphasizes the importance of people finding new ways to control their online reputation through tailored content.

The rise in adblocker software saw a large increase of native advertising among websites and publications due to their ability to limit companies’ exposure to Internet users. Studies show that 150 million people use programs that remove advertisements from their web browser when visiting certain sites, and the result is devastating for marketers who initially implement strategies to place adverts in the first place. With messages being continuously blocked from viewers, companies needed to find a new way to bypass these restrictions by incorporating their ads within authentic written or visual content. However, if the quality of the advertising experience is poor for the audience, native advertising will reach the same fate as pop-up ads, which have since become an outdated tool.

IC Media Direct predicts that publishers will increase short-form native advertising this year due to users skimming through content on their mobile devices. While content marketing remains an important part of every online strategy, the new method will focus on shorter message, accommodating to users’ low attention span. This will lead to the capitalization of video ads, which deliver information in a way that is more engaging and specific to the brand. Facebook’s silent autoplay videos prove to be especially effective in managing this strategy, as they can attract attention of its users with no need for them to search for content. The benefits of positive video ads will compare with native placements, and they will quickly become a standard part of conventional online marketing in the future.

This year, it is likely that feeds of sponsored content will replace single in-feed placements, ensuring that each user experience isn’t disrupted, claims IC Media Direct. The method of dividing an article into multiple pages will be replaced by infinite scrolling, allowing for native placement of promoted content in a logical and unobtrusive presentation. This will enable marketers to promote their product or service more efficiently, thus also generating a higher rate of user engagement.

Profit slips at Volkswagen after accounting change

Apr 26, 2018

FRANKFURT, Germany — Profits have slipped at automaker Volkswagen in the first quarter due to a change in accounting rules, but sales increased and the company recorded no significant additional losses from its diesel emissions scandal. Net profit fell 2 percent to 3.3 billion euros ($4 billion) on sales that rose 4 percent to 58.2 billion euros ($70.8 billion). The company said Thursday that operating profits, which exclude financial items such as interest and taxes, fell to 4.2 billion euros from 4.4 billion euros — but would have shown an increase without the accounting changes, which affect how financial derivatives...

China urges US to avoid damaging business confidence

Apr 26, 2018

BEIJING — China appealed to Washington on Thursday to avoid damaging business confidence following a report that U.S. authorities are investigating whether Chinese tech giant Huawei violated sanctions on Iran amid spiraling technology tensions. The Wall Street Journal's report came ahead of a visit by U.S. Treasury Steve Mnuchin to Beijing next week to discuss President Donald Trump's threat to raise tariffs on Chinese goods in a dispute over technology policy. Last week, Washington barred Huawei rival ZTE Corp. from exporting U.S. technology in a separate case over exports to Iran and North Korea. A foreign ministry spokeswoman, Hua Chunying,...

MGM sets August opening date for Massachusetts casino

Apr 26, 2018

BOSTON — The fate of Wynn's glitzy Boston-area casino may still be up in the air, but rival MGM says it is on track to open Massachusetts' first Las Vegas-style casino resort sooner than expected. MGM Resorts International President Bill Hornbuckle said in Wednesday interview with The Associated Press that the company is now targeting Aug. 24 as the new opening date for the $960 million hotel and casino complex it has been building in downtown Springfield. The company previously envisioned the casino opening sometime in September, but relatively mild winters and steady progress on a nearby highway project impacting...

Geologists say N. Korea's nuclear test site likely collapsed

Apr 26, 2018

BEIJING — Research by Chinese geologists suggests that the mountain above North Korea's main nuclear test site has likely collapsed, rendering it unsafe for further testing and requiring that it be monitored for any leaking radiation. The findings by the scientists at the University of Science and Technology of China may shed new light on North Korean President Kim Jong Un's announcement that his country was ceasing its testing program ahead of planned summit meetings with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and U.S. President Donald Trump. The results also support some of the findings of an earlier study by another...

European Central Bank head to sift mixed signs on economy

Apr 26, 2018

FRANKFURT, Germany — Investors are waiting to hear what the European Central Bank's president, Mario Draghi, makes of recent conflicting data about the region's economy, and whether the bank will extend its extraordinary monetary stimulus efforts beyond September. Draghi holds a news conference Thursday after a meeting of the bank's 25-member rate-setting committee at the bank's skyscraper headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany. No changes are expected in interest rates or stimulus settings. Attention will focus instead on Draghi's assessment of recently weaker indicators such as industrial production as well as any potential impact from tensions over the U.S. move to put...
