Recently, Google brought senior marketers & agency leaders together to discuss priorities, challenges, goals, & product roadmaps. This is what we heard:

Google is investing heavily into knowledge & computing advancements

  • AI & Multimodality: Multisearch with text, image, & camera to inform results.
  • Ambient Computing: Seamless experiences across every device. OS, etc.
  • AR: Google Lens helps Search;Glasses will transform information around us.

rivacy is at the core. My Ad Center is accessible to all to control PII / ad experiences.

Expect more from Chrome’s Privacy Sandbox, e.g. Topics API, for audience activation.

The future is modeled, consented, and driven by 1st party data

… all underpinned by privacy-forward solutions within GMP & Google Cloud. GA4 is purpose-built with a “consent first” approach.

Overheard: Media buyers have mixed feelings about Google Ads PerformanceMax (PMax) campaigns, which automate media fluidly across Google O&O. Control is limited, yet PMaxDR results have been strong. Expect PMax to be a Google focus with A/B testing, insights, and brand awareness optimization on the way. PMax is coming to GMP: SA360 soon, DV360 TBD.

YouTube is the main stream

YouTube makes a compelling case to be the starting point of multi-screen video planning, powered by industry-leading reach on relevant, suitable, and shoppable video content, with privacy-forward addressability and measurement.”

Overheard: Senior marketers need help proving the value of branding to earn more budget.
