The internet is a great advertising platform, but it has also helped to create a new class of companies that are able to monetise advertising through disruptive advertising.
Advertising technology is being used to transform the way we interact with products and services.
But what exactly is disruptive advertising?
It’s a new kind of advertising that is not paid for by users, but is rather built on the back of a person’s own actions.
For instance, if you visit a website and make a purchase, then you can then take a photo of the product and sell it on eBay.
This process is a form of “revenue capture” that can allow a brand to make money by selling products that are already on the market.
“This new type of advertising is called disruptive advertising because it’s not paid,” says David Shumaker, senior director of brand management at brand intelligence firm BrandSource.
In the US, Adweek reports that the amount of disruptive advertising in the US has doubled in the past year to $5.4bn (£3.4 billion) in 2016.
It is this type of “marketing disruption” that is driving the growth of brands and advertisers, but how does it work?
This type of disruption has to do with changing the way consumers buy and use products.
Companies can target their advertising at specific audiences, and advertisers can target consumers in particular categories.
According to BrandSource, there are more than 70 different kinds of disruptive ads.
Some of these are targeted at consumers who buy things on Amazon, for instance.
Others, such as Facebook and Snapchat, target people who share their interests on social media.
The brands are able, through advertising technology, to target their users in the way that they would like to see their products or services advertised.
These ads can be created in any number of ways, including using a product as a backdrop, a video or image, or a live video stream.
A few of the most popular types of advertising are: “Free-to-Air” ads which allow users to watch their favourite TV shows and films on demand, but are also offered in full on-demand, on demand TV channels.
Tv adverts which are usually free to watch on the internet.
Virtual reality adverts which allow users to view content in the real world through a virtual reality headset.
And video advertising which offers a free viewing of a video online and in-store.
BrandWatch, a brand analysis website published a report in August which looked at more than 200 examples of advertising in 2016 and found that more than half of them were created by companies that were either paid or have been bought by other companies.
They found that, amongst all types of ads, the majority of the adverts targeted individuals who had purchased an advertisement.
However, a few examples were targeted at different groups of people.
Examples included people who use the internet to watch TV programmes, people who have a high level of digital literacy, and people who are older.
At the same time, the report also found that most of the adverts were designed to promote a brand.
“Advertising campaigns are often very effective in getting people to make purchases and then to buy something,” David Shapiro, head of digital marketing for brand Source, told Brandwatch.
People are more likely to buy if they are told they are buying something that will help them get a better deal, or if they see the ad online, rather than being presented with the option of buying the product.
Shapiro added that most advertisers are willing to pay to be on the air.
That’s because “it’s a great opportunity for advertisers to get their message out,” Shawarma said.
What happens when a brand buys an ad?
As brands target users based on their online behaviour, they are able to make money.
An ad can be paid in different ways depending on how the advertiser wants to reach consumers.
You can sell ads on social media or in stores, where consumers are more inclined to buy the ad, rather than the product, AdvertiserSource says.
More broadly, advertisers can also sell adverts on YouTube, Google Play and other platforms, which are not available to most consumers.
How are ads being bought?
Ads can be purchased in multiple ways.
One way advertisers can make money is by selling ads to people who have made a purchase.
Many brands are already paying for advertisements on social networks like Facebook and Snapchat.
