EXCERPT: Advertising Becomes More Accountable

Familiar Challenges

You know you are not getting enough value for your advertising dollar. For every $1 you invest in advertising, you only get $.44 of value. One Forrester analyst claims that publishers who remove middlemen can increase CPM from $1 to $5.

The Ad Maze report in the Wall St. Journal is only the most recent illustration of the number of middlemen (and resulting lack of transparency) between you and your intended audience. As if that is not bad enough, you also do not have enough visibility into how your advertising performs. To top it all off, bots inflicted $7.2 billion in fraud last year.

Awareness is critical and advertising is a necessary component to driving consideration. You also know that the current model does not optimize your effectiveness or your return on marketing investment. John Wanamaker’s quote still rings true:

Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is I don’t know which half.

Where Blockchain Technology Can Fit In

This next line will not help with the popularity of agencies, but that does not mean it is not accurate.

Any industry that is full of intermediaries, has a lot of value lost along the transaction path, and lacks transparency and trust is an industry that is ripe for blockchain-driven disruption.

It comes as no surprise that the first and most advanced wave of blockchain-based protocols and technologies are seeking to upend how digital advertising is purchased, delivered, measured, and valued.
