The online advertising scene has changed considerably since we held our last conference focusing entirely on the advertising industry: cross-platform is more than a catchphrase; Google (NSDQ: GOOG) has moved far beyond AdSense; Facebook is a major player; Twitter and Foursquare are shaking up the scene; Groupon set off a daily deals craze; the rise of apps, led by Apple (NSDQ: AAPL), has added a new twist to mobile; tablets are a new rich environment with subscription potential; privacy has taken center stage and advertisers are creating their own content, while agencies continue to morph as they search for the right way to serve a continuously shifting space. Each raises a set of questions amid a constant search for best practices.
And yet many of the challenges remain the same: how to create and sell the right kind of inventory; how to make the most of the ability to gather data and target customers; whether to rely on ad networks, how to engage consumers, and how to make digital dollars add up to the money leaving the traditional media world. Almost daily, it seems, a new business launches trying to take advantage of the changes and solve the challenges.
At paidContent Advertising: Emerging Business Models on Sept. 15 in NYC, we’ll bring together leaders and disruptors from across advertising, media and entertainment to explore emerging business models in this changing space – and debate the possible winners and losers.
