Breaking through the noise (Ad Performance)
In this episode of Publishing Out Loud, we spoke to Mark Mansfield about how bandwidth and competitive visibility are major challenges affecting brands today, and that no two brands or objectives are the same. The key question to ask is what problem am I solving, and then pulling on that thread to break through the noise — the noise being ad performance. Major takeaways from the episode: Use a macro to a micro-level approach to understand which ads have the highest engagement. Leverage organic social content to gauge how consumers feel about certain pieces of content or ads. Give consumers the option to opt in in a conversation. Doing so will strengthen the relationship between advertisers and customers.

A/B Testing for Publishers with Harvin Gupta
In this episode of Publishing Out Loud, we spoke to Harvin Gupta, a Sr. Ad Tech Industry Leader about how to strike a balance between user experience and advertising and how publishers can optimize their ad revenue through various A/B testing and header bidding frameworks that ensure both higher-quality ads and a great user experience rooted in a privacy-first approach. Major takeaways from the episode: Focus on less ads, but more high-quality ads. Prioritize users, their choices, their preferences, and especially their data privacy. When conducting A/B testing, write a clear test plan and document the changes you make (and don’t make all of these changes at once!). This will generate valuable insights and data on what works best for your audience.
