  • Pinterest Advertisers Could Start Paying For Promoted Pins As Early As Next Month [Report] Promoted Pins could be making their paid debut on Pinterest as soon as next month, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal. Pinterest began experimenting with Promoted Pins last October. In the vein of native advertising, Pinterest ads share the same look and feel as organic pins with the exception of a “Promoted […]
  • First Touch: In 9 Of 10 Industries Search Tops Lead Generation, Social Shortens Marketing Cycles In a new paper, Bizible analyzed data from the more than 480,000 leads that have been tracked through its Salesforce marketing analytics platform to provide insights on how marketers should be thinking about attribution modeling and why the traditional last-click model is broken.

  • Massive Web Traffic Fraud: Digital Advertising Confronts “Crisis” Digital media, and specifically display advertising, is facing a “crisis” even as brand marketers are increasingly serious about shifting budgets online and into mobile.

  • Putting The “R” Into E-Tail: Adopt A Holistic Retail Marketing Approach There are a few “signs of the times” that most retailers would agree on: Online sales as a percentage of total sales is growing for all retailers Amazon is a competitor for all retailers Showrooming — the practice of looking at something in a store and then buying it cheaper online — is becoming increasingly […]
  • Twitter Ups The Ante On Impression Metrics, Tests Showing “Views” In Tweets Twitter is bringing more metrics to the people, experimenting with showing users how many times their tweets have been viewed. This test — another potential tweak to provide positive feedback and encourage more use of Twitter — was spotted on a users’ iOS Twitter app and reported late today by Casey Newton in The Verge. […]
  • How Microsoft Scroogled Itself As The Defender Of Email Privacy Over Google For just over a year, Microsoft has been attacking Google over email privacy.
