Contextual Targeting Tools for contextual CTV Advertising

Pay television (cable/satellite) are no longer the default, video stores are practically non-existent, and yet, the amount of content we have access to today far exceeds our wildest dreams back in the day. The shift to streaming services has run parallel to advances in the technology we use to watch television. And though that experience of watching TV has gone through radical changes, consumers aren’t giving up their TVs. It's vital for digital marketing to adapt to data-driven placements to optimize ad campaigns . The case for advertising on CTV According to a recent report from Conviva, viewing time for streaming in the past year is up 57% globally, though Europe ...

As a data company that sees over 450 million unique webpages each day, Peer39 has an ability to see what is trending across content. Sometimes that can be cause for celebration, however in times like these, it can mean cause for tremendous concern.

Contextual targeting: Say goodbye to cookies and hello to context

Every day brings us closer to the time when cookies aren’t an option for advertisers anymore. The news of cookies going away isn’t all bad, though. After all, cookies have their fair share of problems in terms of relevance for consumers. Just about everyone has a story like one of these: You buy something and then see ads for the item you’ve purchased all over the sites you visit for days or weeks. You buy a gift for someone—let’s say it’s your 10-year-old niece—and you start seeing ads related to that gift you have no interest in anymore. You’re a parent working full time and do searches at home related to your child’s needs and the ads follow you around while you work at the office. Not ideal, is it? While research shows consumers want personalized ads, there’s a growing unwillingness ...

Brand suitability: Target the right content with context

This year has been intense when it comes to news coverage, especially with so much reporting around the pandemic, politics, and protests. The sensitive nature of these news topics has made advertisers particularly reticent about placing ads on news content. We saw it in the early days of the pandemic when blocklists were used to protect brands from negative coronavirus stories. The challenge with this avoidance approach is that publishers rely on the ad revenue to support their ability to report on all those very topics. The use of inclusion/exclusion lists creates risk for credible information sources we need right now. More importantly, it locks you out of the highest quality content for ad placements, reducing your impression pool. So, what’s an advertiser to do? No news is bad news ...

How context + storytelling makes more effective advertising

How context + storytelling makes more effective advertising

One of the most effective ways marketers have to connect with their audience is storytelling. This can be challenging when it comes to advertising because the timeframe for attracting attention, garnering interest, and inspiring action is mere seconds. But what if the content alongside your ad was part of the story? Ads shouldn’t be an island It’s not uncommon for ads to show up beside content that has no particular relevance to the ad. I tested this out by looking at what ads would run next to an article with advice on staying cool at home during a heatwave. None of the ads were precisely relevant, but they were all humorous in their own way given the context – here’s a sample of what I saw ads for: Face masks – so important when working from home, Pods – for a quieter, happier place in ...

Reduce the threat of fake news, misinformation with Peer39 and NewsGuard

Peer39 and NewsGuard have teamed up to help. The internet has democratized publishing to the point where anyone can purchase a domain and spin up a website with no real oversight to what they’re publishing – and that ease extends to social media. In March 2018, MIT released the results of the largest ever study on fake news. The findings showed that on Twitter, the falsehoods made the rounds faster than authentic news stories.
