More than one model in the sea, part three: how organisations are taking the reins of their advertising
By

The marcomms industry is a fluid place. Clients come and go, new screens and platforms lure audiences’ eyes, talent moves from place to place, and in the face of these changes, the most efficient way to get a job done may not always be the same. Erin McKenzie takes a look at some of the clients doing it for themselves and the changing role of agencies, and finds there’s more than one model in the sea.

Follow the money, part four: Where New Zealand’s news media is finding pots of funding gold
By

Follow the money. It’s an axiom that journalists have believed in for years and a guiding light when it comes to holding the powerful to account. But that phrase is increasingly pertinent to those who run media businesses. As advertising money flows away from traditional channels towards large tech firms, the old business model of selling space around the news is creaking. And that has led to a range of experiments from publishers and broadcasters hoping to keep the lights on – and to keep shining those lights into dark places. Erin McKenzie dives into the local news media feed and finds plenty of experiments, but no simple answer to the funding conundrum.

A New Zealand Original: Streaming services embrace in-house content
By

Now, slowly but surely, Lightbox is getting in the game.

Can tech save te reo Māori? These entrepreneurs think so
By

As the proverb says, ko taku reo taku ohooho, ko taku reo taku mapihi mauria (“my language is my awakening, my language is the window to my soul”). And while there is plenty of attention being placed on our native tongue during Māori Language Week – and an increasing interest from Pākehā in learning the language – Census data shows the number of people who can hold a conversation in te reo Māori on the decline. Many are looking to new technologies for revitalisation – and in the hope that it could get new speakers on board, too.

By

Ask any industry know-it-all and they’ll tell you: In 2018 marketing is all about activating brands online. With bene ts like pinpoint audience targeting, utterly transparent reporting and real McCoy ROIs, digital is where it’s at and the big, beautiful brand-building productions of yesterday are well and truly becoming a thing of the past.
But is that actually the case? Have marketers really turned their backs on the big budget mainstream campaigns of old? Is there still a place in the market for the cinematic TVC? And are brands still willing to play the long-game of identity building?
