A ideia de criar um blog era para mim um "bicho de sete cabeças". Isso dos blog é para os "geeks", cibernautas que não têm mais nada que fazer que estar agarrado a um laptop o dia inteiro - pensava eu. Agora estou aqui entretida de volta desta ferramenta fabulosa do Blogger, deliciada a ver o resultado final desta minha arte cibernáutica, e a querer escrever mais e mais. A internet é de facto um mundo, há de tudo, para tudo, para todos, como a diz a minha mãe: "nem sei o que hei-de pesquisar", como se nada interessasse. Mas de facto, o universo Google é uma fonte poderosa, é preciso é saber tirar o melhor partido da informação, mas quanto ao Google irei desvendar mais "segredos"...
In-game advertising - In-Game advertising is defined as "inclusion of products or brands within a digital game." The game allows brands or products to place ads within their game, either in a subtle manner or in the form of an advertisement banner. There are many factors that exist in whether brands are successful in their advertising of their brand/product, these being: Type of game, technical platform, 3-D and 4-D technology, game genre, congruity of brand and game, prominence of advertising within the game. Individual factors consist of attitudes towards placement advertisements, game involvement, product involvement, flow or entertainment. The attitude towards the advertising also takes into account not only the message shown but also the attitude towards the game. Dependent of how enjoyable the game is will determine how the brand is perceived, meaning if the game isn't very enjoyable the consumer may subconsciously have a negative attitude towards the brand/product being advertised. In terms of Integrated Marketing Communication "integration of advertising in digital games into the general advertising, communication, and marketing strategy of the firm" is an important as it results in a more clarity about the brand/product and creates a larger overall effect.
"One client was very happy with his rankings so he sent the entire team to Atlantic City, all expenses paid. Then he said, 'I loved hearing that you all enjoyed the trip. It's great giving back the joy that I get from seeing us going up in rank. I am hoping to present more such rewards for the remarkable job you are continuing to do, and for Jim's brilliant leadership.'" Rafael D.
Digital marketing activity is still growing across the world according to the headline global marketing index. A study published in September 2018, found that global outlays on digital marketing tactics are approaching $100 billion. Digital media continues to rapidly grow; while the marketing budgets are expanding, traditional media is declining (World Economics, 2015). Digital media helps brands reach consumers to engage with their product or service in a personalised way. Five areas, which are outlined as current industry practices that are often ineffective are prioritizing clicks, balancing search and display, understanding mobiles, targeting, viewability, brand safety and invalid traffic, and cross-platform measurement (Whiteside, 2016). Why these practices are ineffective and some ways around making these aspects effective are discussed surrounding the following points.
Existem vários tipos de blogs: pessoais, jornalismo, corporativo, tecnológico, educativo, etc. Os blogs corporativos são os mais relevantes para as empresas, são criados com o apoio das empresas, para as auxiliar a atingir os seus objectivos e permitem reforçar a imagem de marca, posicionamento, comunicação interna e externa. Um exemplo de sucesso é o Blog da Barbie (bonecas) onde o fabricante coloca os valores que pretende transmitir na “boca” das próprias bonecas, conseguindo desta forma alcançar mais eficazmente o seu segmento alvo.
Video advertising - This type of advertising in terms of digital/online means are advertisements that play on online videos e.g. YouTube videos. This type of marketing has seen an increase in popularity over time. Online Video Advertising usually consists of three types: Pre-Roll advertisements which play before the video is watched, Mid-Roll advertisements which play during the video, or Post-Roll advertisements which play after the video is watched. Post-roll advertisements were shown to have better brand recognition in relation to the other types, where-as "ad-context congruity/incongruity plays an important role in reinforcing ad memorability". Due to selective attention from viewers, there is the likelihood that the message may not be received. The main advantage of video advertising is that it disrupts the viewing experience of the video and therefore there is a difficulty in attempting to avoid them. How a consumer interacts with online video advertising can come down to three stages: Pre attention, attention, and behavioural decision. These online advertisements give the brand/business options and choices. These consist of length, position, adjacent video content which all directly affect the effectiveness of the produced advertisement time, therefore manipulating these variables will yield different results. Length of the advertisement has shown to affect memorability where-as longer duration resulted in increased brand recognition. This type of advertising, due to its nature of interruption of the viewer, it is likely that the consumer may feel as if their experience is being interrupted or invaded, creating negative perception of the brand. These advertisements are also available to be shared by the viewers, adding to the attractiveness of this platform. Sharing these videos can be equated to the online version of word by mouth marketing, extending number of people reached. Sharing videos creates six different outcomes: these being "pleasure, affection, inclusion, escape, relaxation, and control". As well, videos that have entertainment value are more likely to be shared, yet pleasure is the strongest motivator to pass videos on. Creating a ‘viral’ trend from mass amount of a brands advertisement can maximize the outcome of an online video advert whether it be positive or a negative outcome.

Online reviews have become one of the most important components in purchasing decisions by consumers in North America. According to a survey conducted by Dimensional Research which included over 1000 participants, 90% of respondents said that positive online reviews influenced their buying decisions and 94% will use a business with at least four stars. Interestingly, negative reviews typically came from online review sites whereas Facebook was the main source of positive reviews. Forrester Research predicts that by 2020, 42% of in-store sales will be from customers who are influenced by web product research.
Customers are often researching online and then buying in stores and also browsing in stores and then searching for other options online. Online customer research into products is particularly popular for higher-priced items as well as consumable goods like groceries and makeup. Consumers are increasingly using the Internet to look up product information, compare prices, and search for deals and promotions.
Balancing search and display for digital display ads are important; marketers tend to look at the last search and attribute all of the effectiveness to this. This then disregards other marketing efforts, which establish brand value within the consumers mind. ComScore determined through drawing on data online, produced by over one hundred multichannel retailers that digital display marketing poses strengths when compared with or positioned alongside, paid search (Whiteside, 2016). This is why it is advised that when someone clicks on a display ad the company opens a landing page, not its home page. A landing page typically has something to draw the customer in to search beyond this page. Things such as free offers that the consumer can obtain through giving the company contact information so that they can use retargeting communication strategies (Square2Marketing, 2012). Commonly marketers see increased sales among people exposed to a search ad. But the fact of how many people you can reach with a display campaign compared to a search campaign should be considered. Multichannel retailers have an increased reach if the display is considered in synergy with search campaigns. Overall both search and display aspects are valued as display campaigns build awareness for the brand so that more people are likely to click on these digital ads when running a search campaign (Whiteside, 2016).
Outros exemplos para um modelo de comissão por lead seriam empresas recrutadoras que estão procurando profissionais para preencher uma determinada vaga de emprego, empresas que buscam obter mais pedidos de orçamento, empresas que pretendem gerar mais cadastros na versão Trial do seu software, etc. Em todos esses casos, o afiliado recebe uma comissão fixa por gerar essa lead, independentemente de esse lead virar um cliente ou não.
O modelo de comissão por ação, muito conhecido como modelo de comissão por CPA, é um dos mais populares e eficazes modelos de comissão em marketing de afiliados. Neste modelo, o afiliado só recebe a sua comissão quando o usuário clica no banner ou no link e realiza uma ação específica, que poderá ser o preenchimento de um formulário, a compra de um produto ou outra ação qualquer.
Para quem trabalha com marketing digital, possivelmente já ouviu falar de marketing de afiliados. No entanto, poucos ainda sabem o que significa marketing de afiliados e o que é possível fazer com isso na prática. Embora esse seja um mercado que cresceu mais de 100% ao ano no Brasil nos últimos cinco anos, continua sendo um mercado pequeno quando comparado com outros nichos, como agências de marketing, produtores de conteúdo, serviços freelancer, etc. Ainda assim, as previsões apontam para que o mercado de afiliados continue se expandindo a um ritmo extremamente acelerado durante os próximos anos. Esses números são fruto de nosso trabalho com o evento Afiliados Brasil.
