Consumers Spending More Time on Mobile than TV:

A big shift is happening in the world of marketing. For the first time consumers will spend more time using their mobile devices than watching TV. About 70% of that time will be spent on smartphones. This report is no surprise to those in the industry who have been watching the rise of mobile over the years.

People are increasingly spending time on apps instead of web browsers. Audio apps lead the way for time spent, followed my social. According to trends smartphone use will continue to increase. “We’ve expected that mobile would overtake TV for a while, but seeing it happen is still surprising,” said Yoram Wurmser, eMarketer principal analyst.

Although mobile continues to rise, many users have expressed concerns about screen time. Companies such as Apple and Google have released screen time tracking controls. This gives users visibility as to how much time they are spending on mobile devices.

As a digital marketing agency, we are constantly reviewing our processes to make sure we build campaigns that fit our clients needs. With the continued rise of mobile and usage of social media apps, our advertising efforts will continue evolving to make sure our clients messages are displayed appropriately.

Facebook Paid Ads Strategies:

As social media advertising becomes more of a crowded space our team is figuring out ways to make your ads and campaigns stand out. Facebook has made several major updates so far this year that have changed the way ads are targeted and shown to end users.

In order to have a sustained campaign over time it’s important to make sure you have a solid paid strategy with clear KPIs and goals along with high quality creative. It’s also good to take a second look at your campaign’s call-to-action and make sure it remains relevant and aligns with your goals

As the digital advertising world starts to see a shift it’s important to make sure new users know your brand through awareness campaigns. Having compelling assets such as video and high-quality imagery can help with user engagement. This will give our team the ability to re-target the ads to those who we know are interested in your brand.  This is a more long term approach to a campaign.

Our team also has the ability to add tracking codes to see where users are coming from, what keywords they clicked on, and even what devices they use. This way your team will have a better understanding of who is interacting with your ads and adjustments can be made to improve targeting.

We are a Columbus, Ohio digital marketing agency that can help your specialized business navigate any digital transformation. If you would like to talk strategy with our team please contact us.

Google Reporting Issues

It’s been reported that Google has been experiencing reporting issues from April 30th through May 1st. Data may appear for these days, but should not be relied upon for reports.

Our Client Success Manager, Zain Khan and our OppGenetix Opps team have been monitoring the situation. “Google has notified all advertisers within Google Ads that performance metrics from April 30th and May 1st may be inaccurate, although there are actual performance data available for those dates. They have not specified what exact metrics are affected. This could potentially impact impressions or click data as well as conversion numbers reporting from the platform or API.”

Khan also said, “It will be interesting to look back at performance data from those 2 dates after the issue has been resolved to see what exactly changed.”

Google has confirmed in the blog post that, “This bug impacts reports in all Google Ads interfaces, including any report data downloaded via the AdWords API, Google Ads API and Google Ads Scripts.”

UPDATE: Google has reported that reporting through April 30 has been corrected. Our team will notify clients if we see anything affecting an account. Google Ads is currently alerting users that there is a reporting issue affecting this week’s data. If you have questions about any Google Reporting issues please contact us.

Digital Ad Spend in the US passes the $100 billion mark

A report by the Interactive Advertising Bureau was released on Wednesday stating that digital advertising has surpassed the 100 billion dollar mark for 2018. That’s a 22% year-over-year increase.

Consumers are spending more time online thanks in part to the accessibility of mobile. The report found that mobile represented 65% of total revenue spent. Mobile has been a continuing driver of overall digital growth. Digital video revenue has also seen an increase because of the use of mobile devices. If companies are looking to reach more consumers, digital video is becoming an even more popular place to advertise.

Our internal Opps team has seen growth year-over-year in digital advertising spend and will only see this continuing to grow as we move through 2019.

“All clients are looking to have an established online presence and are interested in growing, especially on DV360 and other programmatic advertising channels.”

Our Senior Analysts have also discussed the changing social media channels “We’ve seen a continuing trend in spending due to a pay-to-play model for business. As organic reach continues to decline, paid advertising will continue to drive more business.”

In search marketing, there have also been changes which have increased ad spend. “Since 2015, the number of paid ads shown on a search engine results page has also increased. This is all done in the name of experience, according to Google. The experience is definitely better for a category, such as shopping where a user finds exactly what a customer is looking for but when it comes to other categories, organic reach may be better.”

We will continue to review the report. Our team will be looking closely at trends in an effort to bring your company the most up to date information on digital advertising.

Bing Ads Rebrands as Microsoft Advertising

Microsoft has rebranded Bing Ads to Microsoft Advertising. The technology company is looking to shift their focus on data and targeting capabilities. Corporate VP for Microsoft Advertising, Rik van der Kooi stated in the company blog post. “In the next year, we’re introducing more advertising products with built-in AI, more connected to your data and your business.”

The Bing brand won’t be going away entirely. “Bing remains the consumer search brand in our portfolio, and will only become more important as intent data drives more personalization and product innovation.”

As the focus shifts in the industry, companies are reflecting these changes by rebranding. Last year, Google changed from AdWords to Google Ads to reflect the evolution of the platform and the growing network of partners. Over the next year, Microsoft plans to roll out more advertising products that focus on AI.

AI is an important component in digital marketing strategies. It can help personalize an advertising experience and predict the behavior of new and existing users. You can learn so much about your customers through these technologies.

Our team can work with you on digital advertising strategies and discovering what will work best for you. If your business is interested in implementing paid search please fill out our free digital market analysis.

Empathy in your advertising can start to build a fountain of trust which can foster a long-term relationship between your practice and the patient. Video is a great medium to use that helps demonstrate empathy.

Share these videos across all your channels to help promote your multi-channel marketing strategy. This approach will start to build a relationship with potential patients and set your practice apart from competitors.
