Everyone has a different perception of paid media, and even more so of it’s bigger, scarier, better sibling, programmatic marketing. We are all guilty of occasionally doing marketing 1.0 in a 3.0 world, a little bit like sticking a five year old in a Ferrari.
We need to be smarter than that, because if we are not careful we’ll be using new technology in old ways. I hate the word integration, and just because the whole team is using the stack, doesn’t mean they are working together. Brand messaging is one size, repetitive and stuck at the top of the funnel. Performance messaging is locked into an eternal spiral of “buy now” and “join us” garbage. Basically everybody is not at their best. This talk explores how the factors of programmable advertising (automation, data, integration & scale) come together, and hopefully don’t blow your brand and budget to pieces. Maybe, you’ll even start to move past simple planning, linear leveraging of the buying technology and start serving the right messages, in the right way, to the right people.
