In this Expert Talks series, we are going to highlight the major issues brought forward by the experts in PGS 2021.

The Performance Mindset
In her presentation in PGS 2021, Alina explored the shift in focus when it comes to ad budgets. Apparently, advertisers are prioritizing tangible business outcomes, rationalizing ad spend, and choosing performance-based approaches. According to eMarketer, 62% of marketing budgets are being allocated towards performance marketing. Some of the reasons why performance marketing is growing faster than traditional marketing are: More flexibility, increased marketing reach, pay for performance, transparency of spend and revenue, and reduced marketing risk.
Performance marketing is providing advertisers high intent audience, low spill channels, customized messaging, as well as measuring and optimizing metrics. As a result, brands are able to meet consumer needs and gain loyalty.
MGID’s Brandformance Perspective
Brandformance is branding + performance. Brandformance stimulates the growth of both brand awareness and sales. With native advertising that is designed to serve both branding and performance-oriented objectives, brands can now optimize Brandformance.
Why Native Advertising?
According to IPG & Sharethrough, consumers looked at native ads 52% more frequently than banner ads and 25% of consumers looked at in-feed native ad placements compared to standard banners.
While SEM/SEO, social marketing, and highly targeted media approaches are crucial for a brand, the native approach provides a full-funnel approach that will enable brands to meet user demands.
