IC Media Direct Predicts Simpler Advertising Techniques in 2018

The rise in adblocker software saw a large increase of native advertising among websites and publications.

New York, NY - April 16, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

Public relations firm, IC Media Direct, believes the future of digital advertising in the coming year will actually be more familiar to most than ever before. In fact, IC Media Direct leaders believe this year many advertisers will revert to more conventional methods of advertising. Recent adaptations to online methods have changed how marketers shape the future marketing landscape and have major effects on companies who work to get their brand message across through conventional methods. IC Media Direct emphasizes the importance of people finding new ways to control their online reputation through tailored content.

The rise in adblocker software saw a large increase of native advertising among websites and publications due to their ability to limit companies’ exposure to Internet users. Studies show that 150 million people use programs that remove advertisements from their web browser when visiting certain sites, and the result is devastating for marketers who initially implement strategies to place adverts in the first place. With messages being continuously blocked from viewers, companies needed to find a new way to bypass these restrictions by incorporating their ads within authentic written or visual content. However, if the quality of the advertising experience is poor for the audience, native advertising will reach the same fate as pop-up ads, which have since become an outdated tool.

IC Media Direct predicts that publishers will increase short-form native advertising this year due to users skimming through content on their mobile devices. While content marketing remains an important part of every online strategy, the new method will focus on shorter message, accommodating to users’ low attention span. This will lead to the capitalization of video ads, which deliver information in a way that is more engaging and specific to the brand. Facebook’s silent autoplay videos prove to be especially effective in managing this strategy, as they can attract attention of its users with no need for them to search for content. The benefits of positive video ads will compare with native placements, and they will quickly become a standard part of conventional online marketing in the future.

This year, it is likely that feeds of sponsored content will replace single in-feed placements, ensuring that each user experience isn’t disrupted, claims IC Media Direct. The method of dividing an article into multiple pages will be replaced by infinite scrolling, allowing for native placement of promoted content in a logical and unobtrusive presentation. This will enable marketers to promote their product or service more efficiently, thus also generating a higher rate of user engagement.

Tall sailing ships herald New Orleans' 300th anniversary

Apr 19, 2018

NEW ORLEANS — Old-style, tall-masted sailing ships resembling vessels in a pirate movie eased up to the New Orleans riverfront Thursday as part of the city's 300th anniversary celebration. The billowing sails of one ship could be seen as it approached from a distance. But the vessels had sails furled as they rounded a sharp bend in the river and approached under engine power, aided at times by tugboats. Similar vessels docked earlier on Lake Pontchartrain, the 630-square-mile water body on the north side of the metro area. One of the tall ships visiting Thursday, the Elissa, is a restored...
