I Want To See Ads!

Twist Image

Attention brands that are doing advertising online: Just because I put something in the shopping cart and did not checkout (yet!), don''t you start with that retargeting advertising business so quickly! Also, if I did buy it, stop throwing your advertising budget down the toilet by retargeting me with products in that ads that I have already bought. Advertising doesn''t work. And, is this retailer, now doing co-op advertising and charging the brand for all of this?

Does your brand take bloggers seriously?

Technorati is not the voice of blogging authority that it once was, but each year the advertising network publishes a report that is required reading for internet marketers. The study shows that blogs are the third among online sites most likely to influence a consumer purchasing decision, coming after retail and brand websites. Blogs offer direct opportunities for brands including banner, text and native advertisements, sponsored content and product reviews.

For example, I found talking to many bloggers who blog about spirituality of different faiths or politics that advertising doesn’t always work so well on some of those, particularly advertising with advertising networks like Google’s AdSense. For example, I know one blogger who has a blog in Melbourne and they monetized their blog by advertising on their blog to Melbourne businesses. There are networks around as well.
