How to get energized

Getting energized when you're feeling flat...

This week started off like most weeks. I found myself launched out of the starting blocks, full of energy and ready to tackle the challenges before me. It ended in me feeling pretty flat as I wrestled with the problem of how to keep myself energized.

So what happened? Due to poor quality traffic we had to close a client’s account down and they took exception to this by jumping on the forums to disparage ParkLogic’s good standing. Here was the problem, the more I defended the more I would have to reveal about our anti-fraud practices…..which would mean the fraudsters would get smarter.

This tensions between defending myself and revealing too much took it’s toll. So late on Friday night I did the most sensible thing I normally do when I feel like this….I went and got inspired. At 4am Saturday morning I was brimming with excitement and thinking about all the great possibilities of our great industry…..this video is on what I did to make this transformation.

Industry Update - Week 24

New charts that really show how much has changed in the industry.

This week I add a couple of new charts to the regular analysis that really highlights the massive change we’ve seen this year so far. You won’t believe just how much more Google is paying for traffic now compared to the beginning of the year.

We can see that Google is powering forward by increasing their normalized RPM compared to the flatlining of the Direct Advertising networks. That being said, I think the Direct Advertising networks will spring back into action as the threat from COVID-19 subsides.

I also discuss a couple of new lessons I plan on adding to MasterClass Lessons next week….so those of you that thought you were finished, yep, there’s more on the way.

Industry Update - Week 23

A great week filled with stunning data.

This week’s highlight would have to be the continued rise of Google as they pay more for valuable domain traffic. The normalized RPM charts of both Google and direct advertisers are amazing due to the fact that Google is clearly after more of the quality traffic.

Advertising network Pubmatic recently reported that Q2 mobile spend soared 71% over the last year and this is clearly evident in the numbers that I’m reporting. It’s a boom time for the domain industry and it’s only a couple of weeks until we start the rush towards Christmas.
