3 Things You Need to Know in Marketing This Week

Australian digital industry association DIGI, which includes Facebook, Google, Twitter, Microsoft and TikTok, will establish an independent board to oversee a voluntary code for misinformation and disinformation, launched in February, at the government’s request.

According to Monday’s article by SMH [the code] requires tech companies to tell users what measures they have in place to stop the spread of misinformation on their services and provide annual ‘transparency’ reports detailing their efforts.[1]

On the topic, Business Insider Australia added that activists tend to be sceptical about the efficiency of this kind of self-regulation. [2]

Google is Providing Access to an AI-driven Tool that Helps Advertisers Identify What Led a Person to Buy.

Last week, Google announced it’s replacing last-click attribution default setting for advertisers measuring campaigns, with data-driven attribution.

In an article about the announcement, Ryan Barwick, writer at Marketing Brew, explains that the data-driven attribution setting ‘uses machine learning to give credit to all of the ads that led someone to make a purchase, not just the final one.’

Vidhya Srinivasan, VP/GM Buying, Analytics and Measurement at Google Ads said ‘Unlike other models, data-driven attribution gives you more accurate results by analyzing all of the relevant data about the marketing moments that led up to a conversion. Data-driven attribution in Google Ads takes multiple signals into account, including the ad format and the time between an ad interaction and the conversion.’

Here’s Google’s announcement 'The future of Attribution is data-driven' and Marketing Brew’s comments 'Google’s Saying Bye to Last-click Attribution'

Twitter is Launching a Broader Roll-Out of New Spaces Tab.

Twitter just announced they are improving Spaces discovery. As explained by Social Media Today, ‘the new Spaces tab will showcase live audio broadcasts, with the listings attuned to your interests, based on people and topics you follow in the app (Twitter also added topic tags for Spaces recently). That could get more people tuning in, with the capacity to check in at any time and see what Spaces are happening on the topics that you care about’.

But discovery still remains difficult, in great part because there are many Spaces broadcasts happening all the time for almost all users. So highlighting relevant topics for each user will be a key factor in Space’s success.
