With new topics in the world of marketing making headlines every week, it can be hard to keep up. We created this marketing news roundup to make it easier to see it all in one place. 

In digital marketing news, the rapid influx of new digital technology is encouraging advertisers to rethink their old strategies. One way that brands can stand out from the crowd is through high-quality creatives. Adweek covered some recommendations from Amazon for brands looking to develop compelling advertisements in this ever-changing digital landscape. The article suggests starting with the fundamentals of great design and creative storytelling. Then, brands can experiment with new technologies to optimize and improve campaign performance in the short term, and later apply any learnings to future creative work. Amazon found that even just a few small tweaks to their call to actions led to a 36% lift to branded search. 

In the world of Connected TV, MarTech recently covered their recent MarTech Conference. One presentation from our own VP of marketing at MNTN, Ali Haeri, explored some of the ways that brands can bring their ABM strategies to CTV advertising. ABM marketers have utilized email marketing, targeted advertising, and personalized landing pages for some time to great success. “The problem is that when all marketers are doing the same thing and working out of the same playbook, it’s really hard to differentiate yourself,” said Haeri. “It’s really hard to stand out, and when we’re considering our end-user, it’s really hard to cut through the noise.” Instead, marketers should be looking to stand out by targeting users on CTV/OTT, a channel which is highly targetable and fully measurable, and serves high-impact ads.
