Team KnowledgeView and Rewardisement

The future of advertising revenue rests on adopting a “less is more” attitude: less annoying formats will eventually generate more revenue.

Creativity and sophisticated value propositions will be saved for bespoke campaigns such as branded content customized to the needs of a handful of advertisers.

This trend will lead to sector consolidation. Those who invested the most will extend their footprint and their bargaining power, leaving slow movers in their dust. If you doubt this, just look at The New York Times’ T-Brand Studio or at the Wall Street Journal Custom Studios, or even at the Buzzfeed ad machine, and see what they are capable of in terms of customized ads. By the way: many of those ads are designed to evade blockers.

Rewardisement is a great example of ad technology designed to allow consumers to interact more intelligently with advertising, tracking and rewarding their participation across print, web and mobile, and providing advertisers with valuable engagements data. Being pro-consumer Rewardisement is an excellent answer to Ad-blockers.
