The Top 2019 Digital Marketing Trend: Digital Personalization
The digital marketing industry which is forever fast-moving has sought to combine data with advertising technology – 2019 may be the year of implementation. Dynamic creative optimization (DCO) is a display ad technology that creates personalized ads based on data about the viewer at the moment of ad serving. DCO is more relevant to the consumer and typically outperform static ad copy frequently by a significant margin. So why is 2019 the year that digital personalization will make the move to large-scale usage, you ask? There are three core reasons signaling this year to be the year that we see personalization technologies integrating rapidly into digital communications and video content.
In years past, DCO has been a term used to describe testing a variety of versions of ads for performance-based campaigns. According to Marketing Tech, DCO campaigns used techniques such as multivariate testing aiming to establish which combinations of assets perform the best, and optimize the creative towards those results.
There are pros and cons to dynamic creative optimization, and one of its significant shortfalls is requiring a significant amount of data to learn and optimize. This can be rather lengthy and costly to format requiring high skill and expertise.
Today’s leading personalization technologies are highly sophisticated machines; referencing multiple sets of data to identify individual consumer preferences and profiles to serve the optimum combination of creative content to each consumer in real-time. With this new technology and approach that has developed over the past two years, it has opened a variety of new opportunities to run highly personalized campaigns across all marketing channels.
Removing Obstacles, Increasing Results
Advertisers can dynamically create a variety of ad groupings in real-time using only a single tag with digital personalization technology. This not only simplifies ad production and trafficking to save time and money for brands of all sizes, but it also allows your advertising team to focus on their specialized areas maximizing your results even further. On average, personalized advertising created and executed in this way sees between 2.5x – 4x uplift in consumer engagement compared to version-based advertising.
Video personalization has arrived! This technology is available to serve the most appropriate content and messaging through a single VAST tag, which removes brand dependence on ad serving technology. Personalization is a key strategy for many brands and companies in 2019, and video content is a key component within the personalization strategy. Until now, being able to dynamically create and serve video advertising at scale and across all devices had been a challenge, both technically and operationally. With the upgrade in technology, there now exists a huge window of opportunity for advertisers to engage and build relationships with consumers that just weren’t possible in years past.
