• At W Hotels, Distribution Is Secondary To Quality Content

    If the content is good, the distribution – paid, earned or otherwise – nearly takes care of itself, said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader at W Hotels & Resorts. “We’ve steered away from peppering tactical ads in mass numbers across multiple channels,” Ingham said. “We start with the premise of trying to create the best content, and then […]

  • PubNative Takes The Wraps Off A Native Mediation Tool Aimed At Devs

    App publisher Betternet is eschewing banners in favor of native because the results are better and the experience is less annoying for the user – but getting enough quality demand can be a challenge. “This year I observed that the fill rate for most of the ad networks we work with is sometimes even less […]

  • Dun & Bradstreet Aims To Be The De Facto B2B Data Shop

  • Even Facebook Can’t Just Waltz Into The Location Data Space

    Facebook, which recently took the wraps off a tool that lets advertisers link location-aware ads to store visits, may have more than 1.5 billion users, but scale isn’t the only prerequisite for cracking offline attribution. “My question for Facebook would be: Do they know the spatial outlines of every McDonald’s in America?” said Duncan McCall, […]
