Around the Industry:
- Oh, Google. Stop playing with our emotions. The search engine/advertiser/bidding platform/email service/etc. confirmed via its blog that it will delay the depreciation of third-party cookies until mid-2023 and the phase out will end in late 2023.
- Some good news: media investment company GroupM is spending $75 million to support media collective Group Black, a new initiative aimed at supporting Black-owned media and creators by connecting them with agencies and brands.
- Banks are building back trust! According to eMarketer’s latest report, US banks built up a consumer trust advantage over competitors such as neobanks (a type of direct bank that operates exclusively online without traditional physical branch networks – I looked it up for you) and tech companies. Security and privacy remain the most crucial factors in influencing consumer trust in banks, especially after lingering memories of pandemic-related fraud.
- 68% of B2Bs expect their digital marketing budgets to increase — with 42% who expect them to increase moderately and 26% significantly, according to a 2021 report in MediaPost, and 30% say they are significantly increasing their technology spend.
- And say goodbye to Zoom fatigue? 75% of brand marketers have resumed live, in-person experiential marketing, according to AnyRoad’s report.
