10 Awesome Online Ad Galleries

As you may recall I’m on a personal mission to help people make even better use of online display advertising by driving innovative new ideas, formats and highlighting great creative – because online ads are amazing and we can only continue to improve them.

Earlier this year we hosted the 120 Hours ad exhibition in partnership with Brand Republic to put the spotlight on a select few great ads. Now it’s time to open the floodgates to show the massive variety of ads flying around the net.

I’ve compiled the below list of ten online galleries (in alphabetical order) showcasing hundreds of recent online and mobile display campaigns. They’re fantastic and worth bookmarking because you can view and play with ads that may not have been aimed at you.

    The nature of big-data capture is not only beneficial for big firms who can record and measure it marketing-wise, but also for those who require predicted spend mapping that can determine the size and scope of future marketing budgets for forecasting purposes. Data insight
    is increasingly becoming part of the financial forecasts for data-aware
    companies, with near real-time predictive analytics that are helping to shape company
    strategies and positioning. It is somewhat incompatible with proposed legislation from the EU on data privacy – the right not to be subject to consumer profiling: brands will need
    explicit consent from individuals to use their data for marketing
    purposes across all channels. If IP addresses are also classified as ‘personal
    data’, brands will need explicit permission to carry out web analytics if the EU ruling, goes ahead unchallenged.. In fact, the DMA is currently urging its members to directly lobby their MEPs against the bill.  @DataPartnership

    ‘To get people to the brink of wanting to undertake serious behavioural change requires highly emotional and motivating messaging’

    Sorry Tess but I don’t think you understand nudging! Read the success stories of the Govt’s ‘nudge’ unit in public policy. Very simple interventions, often at zero/low cost, can change behaviour by triggering heuristics (implicit decision-making ‘rules’). There are dozens of studies on this now (and we have client case studies too) that prove that you can change behaviour without changing minds/attitudes (and there is evidence that behaviour change precedes attitude change).

    ‘only when other communications and marketing have created strong desire, taking people to the brink of purchase/action, and it works best for high-interest, pleasure, luxury categories’

    What’s your evidence for this? Read Wansink on changing something as basic as students’ eating habits in a canteen. All done by nudges.
