Media Buying

YouTube’s free TV shows will boost its watch time and appease nervous advertisers: Ad-supported TV is an obvious move, but the platform lacks access to today’s biggest hits.

Time spent with TikTok peaked at 40.0 minutes per day for the average US adult user in 2021, below that of YouTube, at 45.0 minutes daily. TikTok will lose some of its pandemic gains this year and the next, with its time spent falling to 37.1 minutes in 2023.

Social network user numbers are still rising in the US, UK, and Canada—albeit slowly. This is to be expected as the social media market matures. But the user makeup of the main platforms is changing, and there’s more competition.

Curated by eMarketer, this special collection of interviews will help you understand how consumer packaged goods (CPG) marketers’ digital ad spend and commerce strategies have evolved due to market challenges, including waning loyalty, rising prices, and stocking issues.

The closure of an ad-free YouTube app is a reminder of ad blockers’ prominence: Digital advertising efforts are at odds with the experience most internet users want.

Ad-supported video is the new streaming gold rush: Disney, HBO, Discovery, and even Netflix have toyed with or launched ad-based viewing channels

New data collection strategies emerge from Apple’s privacy update: Advertisers and publishers are turning to ecommerce, direct mail, and other means to enhance their first-party information, our recent report finds.

TV squeaks past online and mobile video to become the top video ad channel among US agency and marketing professionals. In October, 47% ranked TV—including connected TV (CTV) and OTT—as the No. 1 video type for achieving their advertising goals. That’s more than the 46% who put online and mobile video in first place.

On today's episode, we discuss whether Disney+ is back on track, how to read HBO Max's numbers, and whether Paramount+ can keep up. For "In Other News," we talk about why folks are cutting the cord today and why there's been a boost in ad-supported video-on-demand (AVOD) ad spending. Tune in to the discussion with our analyst Ross Benes.

Digital habits were supercharged through the pandemic. For those who had been around digital for much of their lives, however, the suddenly crowded digital ecosystem became a smorgasbord for them to snack on. And younger, more digital generations appear to be quite picky.

On today's episode, we discuss the main takeaways from Snapchat and Twitter's Q4 performance. Then for "In Other News," we talk about why social platforms are pivoting toward more professionally created content and the significance of Snapchat testing mid-roll ads within Stories. Tune in to the discussion with our analyst Jasmine Enberg.

Apple’s 2021 privacy updates have advertisers approaching iOS with caution and accelerating their investment in Android. Last May, soon after the changes rolled out, US Meta ad spending rose at about the same pace on both types of devices. By the end of December, growth on iOS had slowed to 3% year over year, while Android’s soared to 101%.

Third-party identifiers, upon which programmatic digital display was built, have been under fire for years. Regulatory scrutiny has heightened and consumer sentiment around privacy has grown in favor of increased transparency into, and control over, where and how companies use personal data.

Meta’s lawsuits, settlements, and consumer sentiment are a mounting problem: The company can’t acquire its way out of this one.

Google’s EU antitrust woes multiply: Sweden’s PriceRunner sues Google for skewing search results toward its own shopping service. The move could prompt more legal action from European shopping services.

Meta’s future is muddled by declining Facebook users, slow metaverse adoption and a beleaguered ad model: In response to TikTok's success, Meta will shift focus to video, but will the reactionary move be enough to recover losses?

As retail’s digital dominance grows, Google successfully captures retail ad dollars: Its investments in social commerce on YouTube and improvements to Google Shopping appear to have paid off.
