DynAdmic is a Private marketplace for online video advertising that uses audio recognition technology to support the programmatic video buying. “With this technology we help marketers reach their exact audience based on what they are watching”, says Camila Masetti, international marketing director of DynAdmic. DynAdmic recently set up an office in New York City, thereby entering the U.S. market. In addition, it currently  is expanding into Latin America with an office in Sao Paulo, Brazil, which handles opperations in Brazil and Mexico.

camila.masettiCamila Masetti (photo), explains that the audio technology was developed in house: “It makes use of concepts such as signal processing and machine learning to detect ambiences (gunshots, music, screams, etc.), transcribe speech-to-text, understand semantics, identify keywords and ultimately categorize the videos. The technology is in constant evolution. Today, it can identify 15 languages and understand 8 of them, including Portuguese and Spanish. We scan inventory from all the main ad-exchanges (YouTube, Adapt Tv, Dailymotion, SpotX, Liverail, etc)”.

DynAdmic targets viewer’s real-time interest: what they are watching at that moment. We identify the video content and push the right ad in front of the right content.

Major clients

  • “The first pillar are our clients. We build strong partnerships with key brands and their agencies across regions. We are constantly gathering their feedback to develop products to fit their market, create more effective integrated cross-device campaigns and at the end improve results.
  • Second is the Market. We invest a lot in education in the form of events, agencies workshops and university  courses. We want to help the actual and future generation to  be more aware of what is programmatic the good and the bad.
  • Third is publishers and ad networks. We are constantly developing and updating our partnerships with local publishers and ad networks to increase the quality and volume of our sources and reinforce our position as as  premium video inventory provider.”

Portada: Why do you think now is the right moment for the expansion in the region?


Camila Masetti:
 “Latam is a huge market for online video advertising. It is the second fastest growing market for Youtube in revenue and it has one of the best video consumption and engagement rates around the globe.

Latam is a very young market in terms of knowledge in the digital advertising landscape.

Even though the potential and growth rates are enormous, the Latam is a very young market in terms of knowledge in the digital advertising landscape. Most advertisers still fear programmatic and are waiting for someone to lead first. We decided to be a pioneer in the region, knowing it would give us more work but that we could establish real partnership relations with our clients. We work side-by-side with them to educate the market, bring the best practices we have seen abroad and provide them with anything they might need to help in this conversion”.

We decided to be a pioneer in the region, knowing it would give us more work.

Portada: Which Latin American countries are the stronger ones in the video advertising market?

Camila Masetti: “The first country is  Brazil. Alone, Brazil has more audience than all other Latam countries united. Second place would go to Mexico. And if we look only at South America then Colombia would be second. It is interesting to notice that this top three countries are also the top three in population size”.

Pre- roll is the king

videoidMasetti assures that ” In Brazil as in any other country we work in, the king of video ad types is definitely the pre-roll”. “The best working formats independent of the regions, are those with more volume. The bigger the volume, the more options we have so we can extract better inventory at a lower cost”, she adds.

Regarding expectations for the Latin video market, Masetti tell us that “eMarketer predicted a 80% growth in programmatic for 2014 and 60% in the two following years. Video and mobile are the two fastest growing segments in programmatic with respectively 65% and 109% globally and it will definitely have an impact on the Latin America video advertising landscape”.

Video and mobile are the two fastest growing segments in programmatic.

A piece of advice

Portada: If you have to give an advice to video advertisers in Latin America, What would it be?

Camila Masetti: “First and foremost: “invest in the education of your teams (media buyers and creatives)”. You cannot make the best decisions if you are not aware of all your options. Media buying is as responsible for your campaign results as the creatives. No need to say that new media buying technologies also generate awesome creative ideas to grab your viewer’s attention.
Second liquid-gold advice would be: “do not be afraid of this “new” market”. In Latam we have the benefit of having the U.S. and Europe test first. Marketers here should be glad to know what pitfalls not to fall into and feel confident of implementing good practices that already have been proven in other markets.”

Second liquid-gold advice would be: “do not be afraid of this “new” market”.

More  advice:

  • “Do not focus on only few portals, diversify your publishers to diversify your audience. Today, programmatic is the best way to run across device campaigns on various publishing platforms, compared to only one platform.
  • Stop thinking in terms of 1st and second screens because your audience is everywhere. Especially when in most countries TV is no longer the first screen.
  • Creating specific content for each device and video format pays off.
  • Contextualize your targeting efforts  to enhance user experience and increase campaign results.
  • Always dedicate a portion of your budget to test and try new platforms and technologies. This is the only way to find what best suits your strategy and to keep innovating.”

Michele Tobin, who is the VP of Brand Partnerships and Advertising, RovioIn-Game Advertising has become a significant and often highly engaging ad-category. Rovio, the Finnish video game developer and entertainment company, best known for being the creator of the Angry Birds Video Game franchise, has been experiencing a slow-down in revenues growth over the last quarters and has began shifting to the dominant free-to-play model for apps, in which games are downloaded for free but money is made from in-app purchases and advertising. Los Angeles based Michelle Tobin, VP Global Brand Partnerships & Advertising (photo), was hired by Rovio a year and a half ago from Millennial Media to lead Rovio’s direct ad sales business. Portada interviewed Tobin to ask her about her unit’s expansion into the Latin American market.

Tobin stresses the high smart phone penetration growth Latin America has experienced over the last few years and the positive impact this has had on the use of the Angry Birds game in the region: “Angry Birds has become part of popular culture globally, with high brand awareness and recognition from hundreds of millions of fans. So it’s no surprise that Angry Birds apps lead the pack in being among the first downloaded by new smart phone owners. When regions experience explosive growth in smart phone penetration, we see huge spikes in downloads and significant audience growth. We’re seeing this happening now in Latin America, and therefore are expanding our team to support this dynamic growth.”

“Our birds express themselves without words, so they all speak the same universal language – fun! Our brand campaigns can be geo-targeted by region and we run creative in-language appropriate for each market,” Tobin adds.  Rovio ad offerings include 15-second pre-rolls for ToonsTV videos, sponsored in-game rewards and rich media placements.

Miami-based new hire

Tobin adds that she sees great potential in Latin America and that is the reason why Osvaldo Tirse was recently hired as the company’s new Director of Brand Partnerships and Advertising for Latin America . “We see tremendous potential in the market and recognize that a large amount of pan-regional buying is done in Miami, so it made sense to base our Director of Brand Partnerships for Latin America, Ozzie Tirse, there.”

We see tremendous potential in the market and recognize that a large amount of pan-regional buying is done in Miami.

Brazil and Mexico, Top 10 Countries in the World

Angry BirdsAccording to Tobin, Brazil and Mexico are Rovio’s two strongest markets in Latin America, and among the Top 10 markets in the world for Rovio. “We are also very strong in other key Latin American countries, such as Colombia, Chile, Argentina and Peru.” “We do not have any exclusive deals, and are instead very focused on building our own direct sales team in Latin America, as we are in other markets. While we do work with rep partners in select markets, we feel that no one can tell the Rovio story quite like our own direct sales team, and by working directly with us, we can come up with the most innovative ways for advertisers to engage with our audience via mobile and online media, video, integrations, sponsorships and more.”

Tobin says that Rovio works with many leading brands across a broad range of categories. “Some of our advertisers include great brands like Pepsico, Energizer, Fiat, Disney, Ambev and Netflix.” Tobin cites LatAm’s large and growing mobile audiences as the main rationale behind a very rosy Latin American growth outlook. “We are extremely optimistic about the opportunities in Latin America given the dramatic and continuous rise in smart phone penetration – Mexico alone had 50% growth in smart phone penetration last year! We know this large mobile audience is valuable to advertisers and that the advertising dollars will follow the consumer eyeballs. With both the digital and mobile ad markets growing and advertisers moving money towards digital and mobile, we are confident that our extensive reach and premium environment presents a huge opportunity for brands in the region.”

Madrid, Miami, Buenos Aires, Santiago o San Pablo… el mundo digital e interactivo latino no tiene fronteras. Esto se debe, en parte, a una serie de jóvenes empresas que están tratando de capitalizar el crecimiento del mercado de publicidad y contenidos orientados a audiencias latinas. Son los “Latin Digital Powerhouses”.

Muchos de sus ejecutivos y empleados usan skype, teletrabajan y son “nerds” de la tecnología. El listado de estas empresas se encuentra en continua actualización, como internet mismo. De hecho, se podrá encontrar en nuestro portal http://www.portadaonline. com/ EnEspanol/marketingmedios una actualización semanal de estos “Bastiones Digitales”.

Aquí va una muestra de nuestra serie “Bastiones Digitales Latinos”. No están todos los que son. Pero si son todos los que están. Todos los bastiones tienen en común ser pequeñas y medianas empresas que están conquistando algún aspecto de la Internet y /o las nuevas tecnologías en el mundo latino.

Portada: ¿Cuáles son las metas y objetivos para Psicofxp? Leandro Santoro, Director Comercial:
“Consolidarse en el mercado de habla hispana como la plataforma de conversaciones que permite a los clientes establecer un diálogo con usuarios de intereses afines a sus productos. Queremos que al hablar de conversaciones se hable de psicofxp.com, y estar entre las principales compañías de Internet en la región, siendo unas de las opciones líderes en publicidad interactiva.”

Portada: ¿Cuál es la política de expansión del sitio en Latinoamérica?
Leandro Santoro:
“Dado que México y España hoy en día representan nuestros principales desafíos, estaremos iniciando operaciones en forma directa en México durante 2011 y estableciendo alianzas de comercialización con otros medios para el resto de Latinoamérica.”

Portada: ¿Cuáles son sus mayores anunciantes?
Leandro Santoro:
Nuestros mayores anunciantes en este momento son empresas de consumo masivo. Algunas de ellos son: Massalin (Marlboro), Grupo Telefónica (Movistar),Garbarino (una de las tiendas de electrodomésticos más grandes de Argentina), Warner Pictures y Unilever. Portada: ¿Quiénes son sus inversores? Leandro Santoro: “La compañía no posee inversores en la actualidad. Psicofxp surgió como un hobby que logró convertirse en una empresa bajo una política de reinversión de ganancias en forma constante.”

Portada: ¿Han abierto una oficina en Miami? ¿La apertura o próxima apertura de su oficina en Miami es parte de una
estrategia mayor para alcanzar el mercado hispano en EEUU? Marcelo Garcia Cisneros, VP Ventas:
“Acabamos de lanzar nuestra oficina en Miami. Miami es un punto estratégico para el mercado hispano de EE UU), panregional Latam y una plataforma para tener presencia en el mercado general de EE UU.”

Portada: ¿En los mercados de qué países se encuentran trabajando?
Marcelo Garcia Cisneros:
“Muchos, más de 80 países en los cuales administramos inventarios de nuestros Publishers y les servimos campañas de múltiples marcas. Los más desatacados son USA, Francia, Alemania, Rusia, España, Brasil y Argentina.”

Portada: ¿Piensan expandirse a otros países latinoamericanos?
Marcelo Garcia Cisneros:
“Si, esta próximo en el roadmap, el 2011 será un año de mucho crecimiento para Smowtion dentro
de la región y en Europa.”

Portada: ¿Cuáles son sus mayores anunciantes?
Marcelo Garcia Cisneros: “Trabajamos con muchas marcas de primera línea como Unilever, Fiat, Ford, American Airlines,
Loreal, Interjet, Grupo Clarin, Mastercard, LAN, Grupo Telefonica, Nextel, Grupo Pepsico/Quilmes, Telcel, Grupo Carso. Trabajamos a traves de los 4 grandes líderes de la compra de medios: WPP, Omnicom Group, Publicis Groupe e Interpublic Group.”

Portada: ¿Cómo sería el porcentaje por sectores del mercado de sus anunciantes (industria, comercio minorista, electrónica, alimentos, etc.)?
Marcelo Garcia Cisneros:
“Lidera Consumo Masivo, Automotores, Aerolíneas, Telecomunicaciones, Electrónica, Bebidas y Estética.”

Portada: ¿Cómo estructuran las estrategias de publicidad para su empresa?
Marcelo Garcia Cisneros:
“Las estrategias que se plantearon se están capitalizando desde la construcción de marca y desde la diferenciación por nuestra identidad enfocada en el desarrollo de tecnología.”

Portada: ¿Cómo esperan que se desenvuelva este mercado?
Marcelo Garcia Cisneros:
“Creo que Latam comenzará a tener un comportamiento más parecido a USA o Europa. En los países más avanzados los anunciantes están más maduros y comienzan a pedir servicios más sofisticados y a capitalizar mucho mejor su inversión.”

Portada: ¿Cuáles son los beneficios de la publicidad digital con respecto a la publicidad clásica?
Marcelo Garcia Cisneros:
“Hubo un cambio muy importante a partir de la intervención de los usuarios en los medios digitales, están dando participación a las personas. Hoy en día el viejo concepto del boca en boca está más vigente y amplificado que nunca antes.”

Portada: ¿Cuál es el tamaño del mercado de online ad network?
Engel Fonseca, VP Digital Value Generation North Cone:

“En América Latina el tamaño aproximado de Ad-Network es del 20% a nivel regional del presupuesto publicitario digital. Harrenmedia es medio consultor multi-plataforma que tiene una network… pero no es sólo una network que pauta sitios Premium y basa sus campañas en los resultados, sino que ofrece también campañas de posicionamiento.”

Portada: ¿Ha aumentado la publicidad digital en el último año en comparación con años anteriores?
Engel Fonseca:
“Del 2008 al 2009 24% del 2005 al 2009 creció 8 veces más. Más o menos si del 2008 al 09 creció 24% yo
estimaría que del 2009 al 2010 crecerá de un 25 a un 30% porque la economía va mejorando.”

Portada: ¿Qué formatos son los más elegidos por los anunciantes?
Engel Fonseca:
“Depende de la campaña, nuestra Ad Network utiliza los formatos autorizados por IAB (los superbanner, cubo
y skybanner).”

Portada: ¿Cuáles les parece que son los más eficientes a la hora de buscar un target específico?
Engel Fonseca:
“Lo más eficiente es la segmentación, también lo son los formatos y la creatividad, pero depende de la industria. Lo que sí es cada vez más relevante es manejar el factor humano.”

Portada: ¿Cuáles son sus objetivos para el año siguiente?
Engel Fonseca:
“Mantener nuestro liderazgo en la región, generar mayor valor a través de la innovación tecnológica y la
calidad de factor humano que maneja Harrenmedia para la industria. Consolidarnos como el partner indiscutible para agencias,
centrales de medios y clientes directos, a través de nuestra multi-plataforma.”

Portada: ¿Cómo describiría a Headways Media?
Dennis Brandl, CEO:
“Headways Media es una agencia de mercadeo en línea, que nació en Alemania, siempre atenta a
incrementar el éxito de nuestros clientes a través de nuestro trabajo de calidad.”

Portada: Sabemos que han abierto una nueva oficina en México para alcanzar el mercado mexicano y panregional
publicitario. ¿Podría definir cuáles son los desafíos más importantes en el mercado panregional?
Dennis Brandl:
“Un desafío general que se enfrenta cualquier empresa cuando entra en nuevos mercados son los obstáculos como cuestiones legales, reclutamiento de mercadería y de recursos humanos capacitados, integración en la industria, posicionamiento
de marca, etc. Otro desafío es que hemos tenido que adaptarnos a la cultura del país al que enfocábamos.
Especialmente en mercadotecnia esto es absolutamente necesario. También debemos considerar estas diferencias culturales a la
hora de proyectar planes, estrategias de mercadeo y planeamiento general de las operaciones.”

Portada: Si tuviera que comparar el mercado europeo de publicidad y el panregional, ¿Qué piensa que tiene que ser mejorado en el mercado panregional?
Dennis Brandl:
“El mercado panregional es joven y por lo tanto hay una falta de conciencia común. Los miembros del sector deben aprender más sobre el servicio mismo de marketing digital. Deben tener en cuenta la posibilidad y conocer mejor sus conceptos y funcionamiento. Por el otro lado, también a los proveedores del servicio les falta conocimiento. Hay agencias que se encuentran ofreciendo el servicio sin tener pleno conocimiento de su funcionamiento.”

Portada: ¿y qué características del mercado pan-regional considera que pueden ser importantes para otros mercados, como el europeo?
Dennis Brandl:
“Las redes y relaciones personales juegan un rol esencial. Creo que hemos dejado de lado esta característica en
Europa. En México las relaciones establecidas son más valoradas. Esto definitivamente ayuda a las relaciones de largo plazo y a
construir lazos más eficientes.

Portada: ¿Tienen planes de expandirse a otros países en Latinoamérica?
Dennis Brandl:
“Claro. El plan es abrir otra oficina en México antes de continuar con la expansión. Pero también esperamos
continuar con nuestra expansión con operaciones en algún país de Sudamérica”.

Portada: ¿Qué tamaño tiene el mercado de publicidad contextual en Latam?
German Herebia, CEO y fundador:
“Es difícil de estimar porque gran parte de la publicidad contextual en Latam la vende
Google, quien no hace públicos sus números región por región. Sabemos que un 30% de sus ingresos provienen de la red
Adsense y que a nivel mundial tienen un 40 por ciento de participación de mercado, si esto se traspasa a América Latina,
entonces podríamos decir que el 12% del total de la torta de publicidad online en Latam es contextual. A eso, debemos sumarle lo que venden empresas alternativas de publicidad contextual como INTEXTUAL, cuyos formatos enriquecidos, dentro del texto, aseguran un gran impacto de marca con CTRs entre 2% y 15%, evitando que los banners se transformen en parte del paisaje bajo el famoso efecto llamado banner blindness o ceguera hacia los banners.”

Portada: ¿No tienen publishers (editores) que tienen dificultades para aceptar publicidad contextual porque aducen que se pierde un poco la integridad editorial de sus contenidos?
German Herebia:
“Todos los días sumamos publishers a la red porque Intextual les crea un nuevo espacio publicitario que no
compite con sus espacios existentes. Les permite personalizar los anuncios de manera que un sitio puede elegir no sólo la cantidad
de anuncios máxima que desea mostrar, sino también en qué parte del contenido.”

Portada: En el mercado anglosajón ¿cuál es la empresa de referencia para Intextual (publicidad contextual)?
German Herebia:
“Vibrant Media es la pionera en un grupo muy reducido de empresas de publicidad de formatos intext ads.
Nació en el año 2000 y en el 2009 facturaron 100 millones de dólares principalmente en el general market de USA.”

Portada: ¿Cuál es el tamaño del Mercado de Publicidad Dirigida vía e-mail? Victor Valverde, Gerente de Ventas y Mercados Latinoamericanos en Media Response Group (Canalmail y Hotwords):
“Hoy en México y Latinoamérica, la publicidad dirigida vía EMail representa el 63% de la inversión Publicitaria On Line.”

Portada: ¿Cómo estructuran las estrategias de e-mail marketing?
Victor Valverde:
“Canalmail tiene como ventaja una base de datos microsegmentable lo que permite prospectos altamente
perfilados, esto lo hacemos analizando la estrategia de nuestros clientes, vemos también resultados de campañas anteriores, edimos nuestros promedio por industria y al final damos la mejor recomendación con base al target y numero de envíos.”

Portada: ¿Con cuántos suscriptores cuentan? ¿Cómo alcanzan esta cifra?
Victor Valverde:
“Canalmail tiene 7.3 Millones en México y 33 Millones en Latino América, auditados por Price Waterhouse
Cooper y con Permission Marketing, alcanzamos esta cifra gracias a que tenemos más de 6,000 portales verticales afiliados con
los que manejamos un esquema de co registro.”

Portada: ¿Ha aumentado el e-mail marketing en el último año en comparación con años anteriores?
Victor Valverde:
“La inversión en E-Mail marketing ha tenido un aumento de un 23% promedio por año, esto se debe a que
hacer una campaña de E-Mail resulta más barato y tiene mayor alcance, así mismo hay un gran control de los resultados de la
campaña debido a la métricas que da una estrategia de E-mail.”

Portada: ¿Cómo esperan que se desenvuelva este mercado?
Victor Valverde:
“Esperamos que el mercado siga creciendo, estamos abarcando nuevos clientes y adquiriendo nuevas tecnologías.”

Portada: ¿Cuáles son los beneficios del e-mail marketing en comparación con el mercadeo digital clásico?
Victor Valverde:
“El mercado digital clásico tiene como característica el ser campañas Pull, esto quiere decir que sus campañas
son reactivas, se tiene que esperar a que la gente tome una acción y vea la publicidad, el E-Mail marketing es Push, nosotros ponemos la campaña directamente en la bandeja de entrada de nuestros usuarios a partir de la segmentación.”

Ticketlatino trabaja en los mercados de entretenimiento de EEUU, España, Colombia y México. Se fundó en el año 2006 por Lino Dominguez y Carlos Zipilivan. Ticketlatino se encuentra en la búsqueda de representantes co-merciales para el mercado de EEUU, con el objetivo de incrementar su presencia en el país. En cuanto al mercado latinoa-mericano, han abierto en el año 2007 una oficina en Colombia y se encuentran estudiando la posibilidad de expansión a Argen-tina. Entre los objetivos a mediano plazo, Carlos Zipilivan le dijo a Portada que se encuentran la expansión a Brasil y México. “Debido a la piratería digital, el mercado de la música y los entretenimientos ha ido mutando dramáticamente en los últimos años de la venta de CDs a los shows en vivo. Esto generó una necesidad creciente de inversores, lugares adecuados y una venta eficiente de las entradas”, dice Carlos Zipilivan.
Ticketlatino provee a sus clientes de tecnología para vender las entradas a los conciertos y shows por medio de internet, teléfonos
celulares o puntos de venta. En los sitios web en España y EEUU los usuarios encontrarán información sobre los shows y cómo comprar sus entradas en línea mediante un sistema de compra segura que ha sido desarrollado por Ticketlatino junto a Entradas.com El contenido de ambos sitios es producido por equipos editoriales propios. Para la publicidad de sus sitios, la compañía trabaja con radios webs a través de una plataforma nueva en la cual los usuarios pueden comprar las entradas directamente a través de los sites de las radios. Las radios solamente pagan una pequeña comisión por el servicio (alrededor de 0.5 centavos de dólar). Otra iniciativa de la compañía es el desarrollo de “Ticket Latino Pro”, un sitio que les permitirá a los ejecutivos intercambiar información importante de manera rápida (información sobre tours de los artistas, presentaciones, estadísticas, locaciones, etc.) “Será el Facebook de los profesionales del mundo de la música”, enfatiza Zipilivan.

Portada: ¿Cuál es el tamaño del mercado online latinoamericano?
Martin Maslo, CEO y Fundador:
“Los números disponibles afirman que hay 20 millones de usuarios conectados en Argentina y 150 millones en Latinoamérica. La penetración alcanza niveles de casi el 50% en algunos países.”

Portada: ¿Cómo estructuran los proyectos panregionales?
Martin Maslo:
“Los proyectos pan-regionales se trabajan de acuerdo a las necesidades de cada cliente. Diría que no existe un patrón de estructura único, sino que tratamos de buscar la solución que mejor se adapte a las necesidades y objetivos en cada caso. Esto se refuerza a su vez con equipos locales comerciales y de atención al cliente en cada país.”

Portada: ¿Cómo definirías el proyecto de Keyword TV?
Martin Maslo:
“Conducido por Gonzalo Alonso y quien les habla, Keyword TV nació como un Podcast sobre Marketing Digital y luego se transformó en Video Blog. El objetivo siempre fue educar y difundir un poco más de qué se trata el Marketing en Internet, y sobre todo, explicarlo en un lenguaje entendible por cualquier persona. En cada capítulo se tocan diferentes temáticas, como por ejemplo e-commerce en la región, cómo trabajar con agencias”.

Portada: ¿Cuáles son sus mayores clientes? ¿Cómo establecería el porcentaje de clientes por sectores (industria textil,
comercio, etc.)?
Martin Maslo:
“Resultics cuenta con más de 50 clientes en la región, entre ellos: Ford, Nextel, Bimbo, Canon, Grupo Telecom, La Caja, Discovery Channel, Pfizer, Barclays, Banamex – Citi Group y Starbucks Coffee, Dashi.”

Portada: ¿Ha aumentado la publicidad digital en el último
año en comparación con años anteriores?
Martin Maslo:
“Si bien hay varios estudios que reflejan este crecimiento, creo que lo importante es destacar que cada vez vemos más en el mercado a las empresas interesadas en reforzar su estrategia en la Web. La tendencia seguirá en aumento tal como sucedió en otros países.”
Portada: ¿Qué formatos son los más elegidos por los clientes?
Martin Maslo:
“A la hora de elegir un formato, se pone mucho en juego el “ego” de las marcas, por lo que vemos muchos anunciantes pidiendo formatos con alta visibilidad e impacto. Contrario a esta tendencia, algunos medios están buscando formato
menos intrusivos para los usuarios. Creo que poco a poco se está encontrando un equilibrio donde tanto anunciantes
como medios pueden cumplir sus objetivos.”

Portada: ¿Cuáles les parece que son los más eficientes a la
hora de buscar un target específico?
Martin Maslo:
“Existen en el mercado herramientas de segmentación cada vez más sofisticadas. Algunas de las más eficientes
son: -Publicidad en buscadores, que permite de alguna manera “leer la mente” de los usuarios cuando escriben una frase de búsqueda en algún buscador; -Re-targeting que se basa en mostrar la publicidad a un grupo de usuarios que hayan demostrado interés en nuestro producto anteriormente; -Publicidad en redes sociales, que dada la gran cantidad de datos personales que éstas redes tienen sobre sus usuarios, es posible segmentar las pautas publicitarias de forma muy granular”

Portada¿Cuáles son sus objetivos para el año siguiente?
Martin Maslo:
“Nuestro objetivo y compromiso con la industria continúa siendo el mismo. Renovar nuestros esfuerzos de capacitación en el mercado participando en más conferencias o cursos, y sobre todo, ayudar a las empresas a que vendan más y puedan ganar más dinero gracias a sus esfuerzos de Marketing Online.”
