Agencies are addressing their gender gap with “returnships," which reintroduce to the workforce mothers who took time off to raise children. The YouTube brand “crisis" is more about PR and negotiations than anything else, many agencies privately admit. And clients share no small burden based on their laser-focus on low costs. “Years of the industry chasing the cheapest CPMs have put us in this mess," said one agency exec. Vox Media is carving a niche for itself as the scale digital media company that’s not quite at the scale of its competitors but is known for quality. That works to its advantage at a time when many ad buyers are wondering if they’re getting what they paid for. Trump is a boon for traffic, but politics remains a no-go zone for many advertisers three months after his inauguration. On the latest Digiday Live, Mashable CEO Pete Cashmore spoke at the Digiday Publishing Summit about why he sees Snapchat as the new cable TV. “Snapchat is our biggest revenue source on distributed," he said. “They’re great for publishers."

TLDR Title
 

Agencies turn to ‘returnships’ to narrow the gender gap

Tanya Dua

Returnship programs — which offer people a means to re-enter the workforce after taking time off — are few and far between. But they could be an answer to the ad industry’s talent and diversity problem.

‘They get a lot of PR value': Agencies say YouTube ‘crisis’ is about negotiations and saving face

Ross Benes

Underneath the facade of moral outrage, agencies recognize that creating a ruckus can be good for PR and negotiating.

Question of the Day: Is autoplay video’s cardinal sin?

Sponsored Content Parse.ly

We sat down with Freddie Godfrey, director of content syndication at Newsy, to talk about the much maligned format. His advice? Publishers should let user behavior rather than simple view-counts be their guide. By understanding what the audience is looking for on every page publishers can make smart choices about how to best deliver video that works. Sponsored by Parse.ly

Vox Media: Not the biggest, but that’s OK

Lucia Moses

Vox Media has grown traffic nearly 40 percent in the past two years, but its eight verticals still lack the scale sought by many buyers.

‘Over-indexing on brand safety': Trump is a boon for traffic, but advertisers remain wary

Shareen Pathak

Advertisers remain skittish around political news even as news publishers are seeing big traffic numbers around President Donald Trump.

Question of the Day: Do publishers push too many metrics?

Sponsored Content Parse.ly

Are there too many metrics? Brands may want to see every detail, but agencies with their varied priorities often need a sherpa to guide them through the treacherous peaks and passes of media metrics. We sat down with Samantha Skey, CRO of SheKnows, at the Digiday Publishing Summit in Vail, Colorado for a fireside chat about how publishers can help their partners navigate a path through the whiteout data conditions of a metrics blizzard.
