Partnership Matters

At FatTail we’re continuously advancing and evolving the AdBook+ platform to support the ever changing revenue management needs of the publisher community.  We believe that change is good – and we’re really good at it.  We have to be because in the advertising industry the one constant is change.  One of the most recent “who moved my cheese” moments was the announcement by Google that they were withdrawing from the OMS space and deprecating their DSM/XSM solution.  FatTail CEO Doug Huntington spoke...

Beyond DSM: What’s More Comfortable Than Your Comfort Zone?

  If you’re a client of DoubleClick Sales Manager, surely you’re aware of Google’s plans to put DSM to bed. As the company told clients in a memo earlier in the summer, Google was ceasing development on DSM immediately, and planned to retire it for good in July 2019. Judging from what we’ve seen in the ad trades and in online forums, it looks like a lot of folks who’d be affected by the deprecation aren’t aware of very much beyond that. There’s a lot of uncertainty about what publishers are...

Talking Revenue Management With AdMonsters

Our own Clayton Tarics sat down with AdMonsters’ Brian LaRue to talk about, Revenue Management, the introduction of AdBook+ and the ways that publishers can drive efficiencies through streamlined business processes.   On Revenue Management as compared to Order Management: Order management, for publishers, is a bit of a misnomer. An order management solution is more like a system that you’d run on your web store for T-shirts and funny coffee mugs. Airline pricing systems are the textbook...

A conversation starter: The double-edged sword of data for B2B publishers

I’m not sure who first said “it’s not what you know, but what you do” but I heard it first from my Dad – on repeat! Let me clarify; it was a good, no wait – it was a GREAT thing to have instilled in me. In the context of my blessed upbringing, the message was that knowledge (education) was important, but that the real challenge and power comes from what you do with the information you have Advancements in technology have changed the way we live, work and interact, creating more data than most...

The Seven Question Itch

In the classic film The Seven Year Itch, Tom Ewell plays a publishing executive vexed by fantasies involving women other than his wife. These reveries culminate in an iconic scene in which Marilyn Monroe—who spends the duration of the film innocently in search of working A/C—has her skirt blown up while standing over a subway grate. The title of the film comes, of course, from the pop psych concept that happiness in a marriage devolves after the first seven years. In evaluating the marriage you have to...

RoundUp: Google’s Chrome Ad Blocking Plans

There was a sudden increase in site visits to the Coalition for Better Ads last week, after it was reported by the Wall Street Journal and Digiday, that Google is planning to institute ad blocking in its Chrome browser, based on guidelines from the Coalition for Better Ads. Chrome accounts for 46.5% of the US browser market in the US, so a move of this measure will cause further disruption within the advertising market. The ad blocking feature will likely be turned on, not just for the offending...
