Having done a number of Road to ATS video segments, panels, and op-eds on the future of the service layer of late, I am reminded of just how complex media buying is at a global scale. There is a common misconception that programmatic has made in-housing easier for brands. Some marketers think the algo can now do all the heavy lifting, making activation an easy process. So, why bother to work with an agency or third party?

Writing exclusively for ExchangeWire, Tom Byrne, SVP agency services, Merkle EMEA, explains that it’s all about meaningful relationships. Today’s always-on digital world has affected our lives in a multitude of ways. One of which is how we find love. With the plethora of online dating websites and apps now available, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to master the digital minefield of love. But what inspires us to make that right swipe or [...]
Despite the rise of e-commerce marketplaces, traditional retail players still can compete successfully if they have the right tools to better target consumers in the physical realm. This is where Singapore startup WhereIsWhere hopes to step in and offer location-based services, which it says will plug a critical hole in the industry and arm brick-and-mortar retailers with the ability to engage potential customers.
