Own, Don’t Rent: A Digital Media Wake Up Call

Own, Don’t Rent: A Digital Media Wake Up Call

Recently, advertisers and business owners had a bit of a rough day when Facebook and Instagram went down for six hours, the largest outage in the company’s history. Luckily, the platforms did indeed come back on, and life returned to normal. But it got us thinking at Overit about digital marketing’s reliance on mega-platforms like Facebook for distributing content and running sales-driven ads. The truth is when you use third-party platforms to push out content or run ads based on location, interest, or other demographics, you don’t own that audience….

Is Email Marketing Dead?

Google “is Email Marketing Dead?” and you’ll get a page full of articles claiming that it is — or that it isn’t. So how about this… How many marketing emails do you get every day?

What Google & Apple’s Web Tracking Changes Mean for Advertisers

by

The changes coming to digital marketing over 2021 will be the most significant in the last 20 years. Between Google ending 3rd party cookie usage on their platform and Apple limiting the data it provides from iOS back to advertisers, the landscape will change significantly. The changes come due to an increased awareness that individuals/consumers don’t want their individual/personal information tracked and shared online. Some of this has been brought to a head by the European General Data Protection Regulation law from 2016. Most affected by these changes will be…

Is WordPress trying to become a Podcast Producer?

“Content, content, content” We at Overit often talk about repurposing old content or creating content that can be repurposed and promoted in multiple ways.
