Hand picked articles, resources, tools, and conversation from around the world of marketing technology. #martech
Welcome Back! I don’t know about you, but I was disappointed with the Super Bowl ads. The NFL’s spot was my favorite with the Serena Williams Nike spot a strong second. Lots of people watch the game for the TV commercials but there is lots of interesting marketing technology complementing the ads. Domino’s launched a campaign that uses AI to identify pizza by photos and each of the AI assistants was prepared to discuss the game. I also found some interesting articles about retargeting’s effectiveness, the impact of Apple’s changes on VR/AR offerings and the dreaded last click attribution.

A recent study conducted by Magna, IPG Media Lab and ViralGains found that more than half of all ad impressions are wasted with standard video retargeting.
