When Google’s browser, Chrome, implemented its blocking of annoying and intrusive ads in 2018, advertisers are forced to adapt. Consumers are increasingly frustrated with ads that disrupt their experiences when browsing online which is why Chrome has led to filtering out sound-on auto-play and pop-ups.
Online ads can either be a hit or a miss. Although intrusive ads catch users’ attention with a wider space to relay the message, two things could be compromised: the publisher’s credibility and the user’s feelings towards the product or brand.
An age-old tactic to be noticed is to become the loudest one in the room. Like how we used to sell our wares on street corners, advertisers shouted at the top of their lungs “Notice ME!” in the form of disruptive digital media. Instead of relying on the traditional way of advertising wherein only one side (brands) do the talking and the other (audience) sits and listens, digital has fostered an environment where both sides can interact with each other. With brands and agencies coming up with newer, more innovative executions, it seems like the future is here and we must adapt to the consumers’ changing needs.
Eventually, a group of marketers together with brands and tech companies decided that there was a better way of being noticed. We at Innity needed to start thinking outside the box. With user experience in mind, we thought that instead of being the loudest one in the room, why not be the smartest? Or the prettiest? Truth be told, we couldn’t decide which one to be, so we became both.
A NEW BREED OF HIGH IMPACT ADS
From the advent of single-site buys all the way to the use of programmatic and social media, Innity has been spearheading the advancement of digital advertising in the region for the past 20 years. In the past two decades, we’ve come to recognize the value of authentic interactions within the digital landscape however rare this may be.
Powered by advanced data management technology, we found out that we didn’t need to be annoying to get noticed, we just needed to reach the right audience with relevant content. The result? Less media wasted and drastically improved engagement and clickthrough rates.
As a digital media transformation partner for agencies, advertisers, and publishers including prominent websites such as CNN, Inquirer and PhilStar, Innity has also partnered with Coalition of Better Ads in improving the online ad experience for both brands and consumers.
