  • The Costs, Benefits Of Data Cleanliness in Marketing Insider on 07/27/2018

    When data surpassed oil last year as the world's most valuable resource, it marked a dramatic milestone in the history of human commercial activity.

  • The Viewability Red Herring by Ron Jacobson (Marketing Daily on 08/03/2017)

    Hey Ed -- Completely agree that viewability is just the beginging. That's whyI think viewability based attribution (i.e. only giving conversion credit if an ad was served) makes so much sense. What troubles me are media campaigns where viewability goals don't align with the actual campaign goal -- be it a CPA or CPI. I'd rather focus on getting the conversion (from a viewable ad) then making sure that 100% of my ads are viewed.
