Media Buying

Time spent on media and consumer spending are plateauing, making one company's gain another's loss. Diving into these market dynamics, we explore innovative strategies for advertisers and retailers to win consumers in the new digital era.

About a year ago, ChatGPT and the generative AI (genAI) boom catapulted AI into the spotlight. The breakneck pace of innovation has made it difficult to discern current use cases from hypothetical eventualities. Like any technological development, AI is a double-edged sword, and it has already started to change the topography of the programmatic landscape.

On today's podcast episode, we discuss whether Amazon's online sales business glass is half full (or half empty), if you should advertise on Amazon without selling there, and how much offering primary care to Prime members can move the needle. "In Other News," we talk about Bed Bath & Beyond's marketing, its comeback, and why Pinterest beat everyone's expectations. Tune in to the discussion with our director of Briefings Jeremy Goldman and analyst Zak Stambor.

On today's podcast episode, we discuss a new lawsuit against Meta for designing its products to be addictive to kids, new paid ad-free versions of Facebook and Instagram, and where Threads engagement is at. "In Other News," we talk about whether we will ever come together again on social media and if AI can help us get there. Tune in to the discussion with our analyst Jasmine Enberg and director of Briefings Jeremy Goldman.

On today's podcast episode, we discuss the likelihood that news influencers will replace traditional media, whether in-store sampling can make a comeback, how many ads are enough ads, what the science says about social media being addictive, why more brands don't encourage consumers to recycle, where daylight savings time actually comes from, and more. Tune in to the discussion with our vice president of content Suzy Davidkhanian and analysts Bill Fisher and Carina Perkins.

Connected TV (CTV) ad spend will exceed $30 billion in the US next year, according to our forecast. At a growth rate of 22.4% YoY, that makes CTV one of the fastest-growing ad formats we track. But where those ad dollars are coming from isn’t so simple.

Retailers invest in shoppable TV ads after seeing early results: Walmart, Amazon, and Home Depot are banking on the format’s interactivity and ability to grab viewers’ attention to drive holiday sales.

Consumer attention is fragmented and getting shorter. At the same time, digital ad spend growth is slowing following a pandemic surge. That means marketers must be agile and strategic with their spending.

On today's podcast episode, we discuss how social networks could improve society, the NBA's plan to remake its TV deals, US consumers' feelings on shoppable ads, how many folks are "serial churners," how disruptive Sweetgreen's salad-making robot might be, a scientific breakthrough from a 14-year-old, and more. Tune in to the discussion with our forecasting writer Ethan Cramer-Flood, forecasting analyst Zach Goldner, and director of forecasting Oscar Orozco.

Daily time spent with both traditional and digital media is in a slight decline worldwide, marking an end to the rapid digital acceleration of the past few years, according to the 13th edition of our Global Media Intelligence Report, which features insights from a GWI survey of media and device usage across 47 countries. “These aren’t fundamental drops,” said Jason Mander, GWI’s chief research officer. But waning media engagement marks a shift in the way consumers are responding to their social and economic environments.

Roku posts strong Q3 revenues growth, attributes to content, ads, and new TVs: ARPU drops as losses mount, but the company remains optimistic amid streaming challenges.

Uber and Lyft are rapidly expanding their advertising platforms to take advantage of this growing user base—one that may prove to be a major audience for advertisers.

Next year, US podcast ad spend will pass the $2 billion mark, according to our forecast. We project double-digit growth through the end of our forecast period in 2027. New data from the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB) finds that podcast ads are trending toward brand awareness, with increasing emphasis on video formats.

Defying global challenges, Pinterest excels in Q3: Innovations and strategic partnerships bolster its market position.

On today's podcast episode, host Bill Fisher is joined by our analysts Paul Briggs and Paul Verna and GWI’s chief research officer Jason Mander to discuss the latest Global Media Intelligence report, outlining media consumption behaviors from around the world.

On today's podcast episode, we discuss how Netflix's ad business is coming along; the streaming giant's first live sports broadcast; and its new retail, dining, and live experience destinations. Tune in to the discussion with our analyst Daniel Konstantinovic.

Digital ad spend by the US travel industry will grow by 14.3% this year for a total of $6.79 billion, according to our forecast.

Meta showcases robust Q3 growth with $34.15 billion in revenues: Facebook and Instagram parent surges, despite Threads struggling to find its footing.

Alphabet's Q3 revenues hit $76.7 billion: Growth driven by Google Search, AI innovations, and YouTube ads.

Netflix’s time spent exceeds its ad revenues the most. YouTube leads in time spent and ad revenues. Amazon will make a big splash in streaming advertising.
