  • Here to help you learn, not to teach

    I've made far more of myself than usual the past two months. I couldn't even write about this until I took that literal plunge. Yes, Coach Valentin, I did take swimming lessons, just like I had before. But finally, this time I also learned how to swim. I learned a few things about teaching too. As a teacher, you're not there to teach a subject; you're there to foster your students' learning. It's a change in perspective I hope to never forget.

  • Facebook pushes AR ads further
    AR ads move into beta. Facebook first began testing its augmented reality ads with a select number of brands in July, 2018. It is opening up a global beta for AR ad units this fall, making the ad format available to all advertisers.
    In early tests of AR ads, WeMakeUp reported a 27.6 point lift in purchases — with the average consumer spending 38 seconds interacting with AR ads, trying out different shades of lipstick — and saw a 53% higher click-through rate compared to non-AR video ads.
  • Demise of Facebook like counts?
  • Expect to see more of a focus on Facebook groups.

The campaign launched to celebrate Queen’s iconic music video for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” becoming the first pre-1990s video to reach one billion views on YouTube.


  • https://www.blog.google/products/ads/full-funnel-video/

    For brands looking to build a full-funnel video strategy, we recommend complementing Video reach campaigns with TrueView for action to drive whatever online action is important to your business. Soon TrueView for action ads will seamlessly extend to the YouTube Home feed, a tremendous opportunity for any advertiser looking to drive more, high value conversions. The Home feed has long been a great place for users to discover their next favorite creator, and now it can be a great place for them to take action with your brand.

    Early adopters like Ford are already seeing strong results using Video reach campaigns. In alpha tests, the automaker lowered their campaign cost over 20 percent compared to their previous YouTube benchmarks. "Ford is using data and machine learning technology, like Video reach campaigns, to drive a learning culture across all of our media. The positive results of the Video reach campaign not only provided cost efficiencies while maintaining effectiveness but also the confidence to implement this tactic across additional campaigns” says Lisa Schoder, head of U.S. media.
