FCC Chief Sets Up Clash With Call to Repeal Net Neutrality

Apr 26 4:23pm
The chairman of the Federal Communications Commission has proposed rolling back the Obama-era net-neutrality rule as the regulation's defenders vowed a tsunami of resistance.FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said he would ask the agency next month to begin considering removing the strong legal authority that underpins the rules, and to take suggestions for replacement regulations. When we are saddled with FCC rules that will deny many Americans high-speed internet access and jobs, doing nothing is nothing doing, Pai said in a speech Wednesday in Washington. Instead, we need rules that focus on growth and infrastructure investment, rules that expand high-speed internet access everywhere. Rules that give Americans more online choice, faster speeds, and more innovation. Continue reading at AdAge.com...

Why the Industry Needs a Gut-Check on Location Data Use

Apr 26 1:22pm
Last year, ads for Goodwill were served to people whose mobile phones had been spotted at thrift shops or second-hand stores in the past. The goal was to convince people who were cleaning out their closets and drawers to consider donating some of their rarely-used stuff to the charity group, and to raise awareness about its education and work training programs. Seems harmless, right?It was one of a growing number of examples of what some mobile ad tech firms are calling Location Data 2.0. Location data isn't just about being somewhere right this instant anymore. Today, mobile ad firms and location data players have expanded their offerings to include targeting and campaign measurement services that employ location data gathered over time, showing the patterns of people's actual whereabouts. Did a mobile device show up in several fast food joints in the past month? Do people often stop at gas stations or convenience stores after hitting the grocery store? Or, on an arguably more sensitive note, was a device regularly spotted at liquor stores, bars or legal recreational cannabis dispensaries?By associating consumer identifiers with patterns of physical activity and behaviors, advertisers today are gaining knowledge they never had before -- information that, unlike survey research or other traditional means of understanding consumers holistically, can provide a remarkable level of insight. Needless to say, mobile tech and data firms are investing resources in creating ad products and services that take full advantage of this compiled information, and more often than not advertisers are gung ho about it.

Twitter Surprises by Adding New Users, but Now It's Got Another Problem

Apr 26 11:34am
Twitter Inc. finally showed signs of addressing its biggest challenge: attracting new users.Ever since the company went public in 2013, it has been battling the perception that its growth is limited. But Twitter showed signs of new life in the first quarter, reporting that average monthly active users rose 6\% from last year to 328 million. The number of daily users has been increasing at a faster pace each quarter for the past year, Twitter said, even benefiting this year from new and resurrected users following more news and political accounts, especially in the U.S.Now that CEO Jack Dorsey has managed to defy investor expectations by reviving user growth, he has to do the same for revenue: Twitter on Wednesday posted its first quarterly revenue decline since going public in 2013, an 8\% drop from the quarter a year earlier.

Making Marketers Uncomfortable

Apr 26 3:01am The Ad Contrarian
When I am finished speaking at a conference or advertising event people often ask me how I can be so sure I'm right and other people people are wrong.The answer is, I'm not.I spent 41 years in the agency business. I worked on some very big brands including McDonald's, Toyota, Bank of America, AT&T and others. And I had a pretty successful career and did some reasonably successful work.But that doesn't make me sure of anything. One thing I learned about advertising is that when you're trying to anticipate human behavior -- which is what marketers and advertisers do -- there are no sure things. All there are are likelihoods and probabilities.This is why I am highly skeptical about what I hear and read from advertising and marketing experts these days. Particularly those of the digital stripe.They tend to be awfully sure of themselves and very dismissive of those who disagree with them. They also tend to have a lot more opinions than experience.It is certainly possible that they are brighter than I am and have more insight into consumer behavior. But, to be honest here, I really don't think so.I've been asked to do a lot of interviews lately (it probably has something to do with the shit-storm over online advertising that the last six months has produced and my sudden promotion from idiot to genius.) Sooner or later, the interviewer usually gets around to this question: Why do you write your blog? It's a good question for someone who's been out of the agency business for four years and is supposed to be quietly retired and planting tulips or something.And as I think about it, it becomes pretty clear why I continue to do this. I believe we marketers  think we know a lot of things that we don't really know. I think we do a lot of faking. I know I certainly did, and I don't think the average marketing person is that much smarter than me.I think it's important that we have more humility and understand that there's a lot about human economic behavior that we don't understand. I like to point that out. I like to find the contradictions and expose the weak points and the phonies.I see my job as making marketers uncomfortable.  It doesn't make me popular, but I hope it heartens some people who feel the same way I do.
