Welcome back to Campaign Asia-Pacific's Crash Course learning series, in which you will learn valuable lessons and practical business tips on trending and essential topics from industry experts in just five minutes. Think of it as a mini mini MBA, if you will.
Lessons will cover the breadth of the marcomms industry, including technology, creative, media, strategy, leadership, diversity and inclusion and more. We'll start off by introducing you to larger topics and delve deeper into specific elements in the future. This series is designed to be useful to C-suite executives as well as those just starting out in their careers.
The 42nd lesson in the Crash Course series will delve into contextual marketing. This form of advertising allows marketers to target ads based on user interests and consumption habits. Outbrain is one of several companies that offers contextual marketing solutions, and its product is powered by code it has placed on publishers' pages rather than requiring third-party cookies. With the impending demise of third-party cookies, contextual targeting is entering a renaissance.
In this lesson you will learn:
- What is contextual marketing and why it has recently gained new relevance.
- Why APAC should embrace contextual targeting over demographic targeting.
- Marketing challenges in contextual and how to overcome them.
- The opportunities presented by contextual.
- How to measure success in contextual.
