A few key points from Patrick’s presentation:

  • With 3 million advertisers on Google and 50 million on Facebook, competition in paid ads is fierce. Which means we are all competing for the same finite amount of consumer attention.
  • To stand out, we need to get creative.
  • One way to stand out is to look for market imbalances—which are usually areas of low competition.
  • The winners in today’s online marketing field have to outsmart their competition by: outsourcing manual tasks where possible, utilizing search-to-search retargeting, integrating Facebook and Google campaigns, and using cross-device retargeting.
