Rise of the machines: Acquire Online's Zane Furtado delves into programmatic ad buying

The buzz phrase 'programmatic ad buying' has been picking up momentum in recent months, and is now commonly heard in discussions on the state of modern media. And despite the frequency with which the word is used, it still carries enough uncertainty to motivate ad tech company Chango to recently run a sponsored web series on Adweek explaining key concepts to the US market. Similarly to the US, New Zealand is also coming to grips with programmatic ad buying. And to find out a bit more, StopPress recently chatted to Zane Furtado, the programmatic director at Acquire Online.

MPA shows off the speed of magazines

This morning, those in the industry were reminded that print isn't as slow as slow as what everyone suggests it is. Before any online publications released any information on the Axis Awards, the Magazine Publishers Association (MPA) had a specially printed magazine delivered to all the agencies that were in attendance. And, as an added bonus, the delivery also inlcuded a much-needed Red Bull.

More data: MPA works with Nielsen to gauge magazine engagement levels

The radio industry isn't alone in this bid to provide more accurate information to clients. Recently, the Magazine Publishers Association (MPA) announced the launch of a new Nielsen-provided methodology that quantifies the total audience potential (TAP) of a magazine by incorporating pick-ups into magazine reach and frequency schedules.

Magazine readership and circ figures: some positives among the downward trends

Every time the quarterly figures are released and again show the downward trend of the magazine industry, it's difficult to be optimistic, but looking at the journalism that pervades the pages of many of the publications in circulation in New Zealand today serves as reminder that the current generation of journalists still has the quality required to carry the canon of journalistic writing forward. That being said, the continued fragmentation of media has seen readers not relying solely magazines or newspapers to read the articles that interest them—and this has of course led to decline in the readership and circulation figures provided by Nielsen and ABC, respectively.

For they are Jolie good fellows

Back in 2009, ACP, now Bauer, took the opportunity to rub Fairfax's nose in the sand when NZ Life & Leisure featured an image on its cover that Kia Ora had used on one of its earlier editions. And late last year, Woman's Day and New Idea both featured the same image of Pippa Middleton (although very different words were used alongside). And Mindfood has pointed out that Next magazine can add its name to that list after it used a cover image of Angelina Jolie for a recent issue that had been used back in 2011.

International cover lovers give Kiwi efforts the nod

One particular magazine cover has been generating plenty of discussion and plenty of entertaining responses (Homer Kimpson takes the win) in recent days. Not surprisingly, Kim Kardashian's effort for Paper caught the eye of Coverjunkie, a website that celebrates "creative covers and their ace designers". And a few local efforts from Next, Metro, North & South and Threaded, have also been featured recently.
