  • Snapchat’s disappearing usp becomes a memory

    We recently looked at Twitter’s decision to remove the six-second limit from Vine videos. In doing so, the platform has gambled its core usp on a shot at mainstream pickup.

  • Chart of the week: Magazine advertising is still highly effective

    Spending money is easy. Spending money to get more money back is somewhat trickier. Advertising is all about your return on ad spend (ROAS).

Data provided by Nielsen Catalina Solutions published by ARF suggests that ROAS is still highest for magazines.

According to figures compiled by KPCB, a lot of ad spend still is invested in legacy media, whereas the time spent by consumers with that media is dropping. The Statista chart shows the proportion of ad spend invested into specific media channels, compared to the time spent with that media by consumers.
