Branding : 14 seconds to have any chance of being seen ! by Michel Lubac

An online ad needs to be on the screen for 14 seconds to have any chance of being looked at, according to a new study on the relationship between viewability, gaze time, ad clutter and people’s ability to remember ads.

The study – by InSkin Media, Research Now and Sticky – involved four companies, nearly 4,300 consumers, and technologies including eye-tracking (by Sticky) and viewability measurement (by Moat).


Who identify sponsored links in search engine results? by Michel Lubac

Half of all search engine users can identify sponsored links in search engine results

In 2015, adults who use search engine websites were shown a picture of the results returned by Google for an online search for ‘walking boots’. Their attention was drawn to the first three results at the top of the list, which were distinguished by an orange box with the word ‘Ad’ written in it. They were then prompted with three options and asked whether any of these applied to these first three results. These options were:

• These are adverts/ sponsored links/ paid to appear here

• These are the best results/ the most relevant results

• These are the most popular results used by other people

The results are shown in Figure below. Three in five adults who use search engines (60%) stated that the first three results were sponsored links/ advertising/ paid to appear there. Similar proportions gave incorrect responses, either saying that the results were the best or most relevant (23%), or that they were the most popular results used by other people (20%). Around one in eight (12%) said they were unsure.

Understanding of paid-for results returned by Google searches, among adults who use search engine websites or apps

Compared to all adults, those aged 65+ were more likely to say they were unsure (28% vs. 12%) and less likely to say that the first three results are adverts (50% vs. 60%).
Adults in AB households (70%) are more likely than all adults (60%) to recognise the results as advertising, while those in DE households are less likely (47%). Men are more likely compared to women (64% vs. 57%).
Search engine users were allowed to select more than one response to this question, so it is also worthwhile looking at those who gave only the correct response and did not select either of the other options. Half of all adults (49%) only gave the correct response; that is, they stated that the results flagged were adverts. This incidence does not vary by age or by gender, but is more likely among search engine users in AB households (59% vs. 49%) and less likely among those in DE households (36%).
Adults who understand that some of the websites returned by search engines will show truthful information and some will not (62% of those who use search engine websites, as shown in Figure 122) are more likely to be aware that the results are sponsored links (65% vs. 60% for all) but are no more likely to give only the correct response (52% vs. 49%).

Use Analytics 360 suite for an advanced remarketing strategy by Michel Lubac

One of your e-marketing PPC campaigns drives a lot of click and view-throughs, but has a low conversion rate. Analysis in Analytics 360 reveals that most users bounce immediately, but a certain segment who click on or view that ad (e.g. women aged 18-35) have a really high conversion rate. You refine the messaging and creative in your ads, adjust where these ads are served, and bid higher in order to find and attract more of this high-performing audience.



Instagram Photo Ads

With photo ads, businesses can tell their story through beautiful imagery. Whether it's inspiring people to see your brand differently or to take action, they offer a clean, simple and beautiful creative canvas. 

Instagram Video Ads


Video ads offer the same visually immersive quality as photo ads on Instagram — with the power of sight, sound and motion. And now, you can share videos up to 30 seconds long and in landscape format. 

Instagram Carousel Ads

Carousel ads bring an additional layer of depth to photo ads. People can swipe to see additional images and a call to action button takes them to a website to learn more.

Google Search : The end of ads on right side of all desktop and tablet by Michel Lubac

Google’s notorious ‘first page bid’ will boom as advertisers now have 7 positions (4 at the top and 3 at the bottom) to appear on the first page over the previous 9 positions.

Organic click-share likely to suffer
On search results with 4 top ads, clicks on the top organic search listings are likely to fall. This correlates with a wider trend we’re seeing on highly commercial terms where organic clicks are falling as a result of ads becoming more prominent.
