In the movie at that point, the line is “And I’ve seen times when Tangerine / Had the bourgeoisie believing she were queen.”

Google is bringing location extensions, which trace the offline effect of digital ad exposures, to YouTube. Ads on the video platform will soon include address or map location data, hours, photos, call buttons and other tracking data. Store visits measurement will also be available soon for YouTube campaigns. Beyond store visits analytics, Google is expanding in-store sales measurement, which it has been testing since 2014. Facebook introduced offline sales measurement in 2013. The latter requires the advertiser to send hashed transaction data back to Facebook for matching on the back end. There are two levels to Google’s in-store sales measurement. The more basic level will report on the in-store sales impact of AdWords campaigns without any back-end integration on the part of the advertiser. Google does this by comparing store visits using smartphone data with credit card transactions in the aggregate. In this way the company can determine whether, during some conversion window, online ads generated an incremental sales lift (in addition to visits). Those that have customer loyalty and email data can “import store transactions directly into AdWords” and get much more detail about the ad impact on product level sales in stores. This is similar to the Facebook methodology and also involves hashed data matched on the back end. Google stressed that all of this was being done in a privacy-compliant way.

Remember, social media marketing isn’t always the tech. It’s the people.

Social Thought

Facebook last Thursday announced a partnership with MLB that will bring 20 baseball games to the social media network. The games are free for all viewers and will air live each Friday, beginning with today’s match between the Colorado Rockies and the Cincinnati Reds. The games will air weekly on the MLB Facebook page.

Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

Digital/Mobile Research

Millennials Most Likely To Engage With Email Marketing

Millennial shoppers might be easier to reach than you think. According to a new study by Campaigner, Millennials are the most likely generation to engage with marketing emails. The email marketing company surveyed 761 consumers who made a purchase online between April 20 and April 26, 2017 to investigate generational differences in marketing preferences.

Twenty-two (22%) percent of Millennials said they are likely to open a brand email message, compared with an average of 15% across generations. Furthermore, 51% of Millennials selected email as their preferred digital marketing channel.

Millennials are also more likely to interact with brands on social media. Just 24% of online shoppers overall named social media as a preferred marketing channel, but 47% of Millennials engage with brands on social media. Millennials are also nearly three times as likely to engage with brands on Snapchat compared with the average online shopper.

In an article by Jess Nelson in eMailMarketingDaily (052417), Pew Research Center defines the Millennial generation as “those born after 1980 and the first generation to come of age in the new millennium.” Growing up alongside the advancement of smartphone technology, Millennials are digitally connected and engaging with brands through mobile application.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Traditionalists and Baby Boomers are more likely to prefer engaging with a brand in-store. In fact, 73% of Traditionalists and 67% of Baby Boomers prefer to interact with brands in-store, compared with 65% across generations. Older generations are also more likely to shop in the morning, while Gen X and Millennials shop at night, according to the study.

Email is the most preferred digital marketing platform for brand interaction across generations, with 44% of respondents overall engaging with brands in their inbox.

Email inbox fatigue, however, remains a serious concern so email marketers should strategically think about when they are sending email. The top complaint among all online stoppers was that they receive too many marketing messages, with 49% of respondents expressing concerns about promotional frequency.

For 1st Time In 17 Years, Fox News Was Not #1 In Prime Time Demos

Fox News Channel finished third among the advertiser-coveted A25-54 demo in prime time last week. And it fell from the top spot in total viewers. That hasn’t happened in nearly 17 years.

Per Chris Ariens, TV Newswer (052217) wrote, ‘A slew of bad news headlines about the Trump administration filled the cable news airwaves last week. MSNBC and CNN were the biggest beneficiaries of those stories which included details of Pres. Trump’s White House meeting with Russian diplomats and news of fired FBI Director James Comey‘s interactions with Pres. Trump. Those stories led to traffic records for the publications that broke the news, and days-worth of coverage on cable news.

The softness of Fox News’ prime time is also due to the fact that the network shook up its prime time late last month following the sudden departure of Bill O’Reilly, who had the most-watched show on cable news. This was the most-significant prime time lineup change since 2013.

The last time FNC finished 3rd in the prime time demo for a full week was the week of June, 9, 2000.’

MSNBC 2,437,000 / 610,000
CNN 1,848,000 / 588,000
