A great discussion about the future of digital advertising between Diaz Nesamoney, Founder and CEO of Jivox and Sramana Mitra, founder of One Million by One Million (1M/1M), the world’s first and only global virtual incubator/accelerator.

I tell people this is the one thing that I know something about, so I keep doing it.

How Digital Marketers Win with Personalized Ads

Calling something an existential threat definitely gets everyone's attention.  After all we want to continue to exist and so when we hear of an existential threat, we have one of two reactions -- acceptance and action or denial and delay. Mark Howard, Chief Revenue Officer of Forbes Magazine, called ad-blocking an existential threat to publishers earlier this week in a podcast.  It is hard to argue with the numbers he presented.  He also suggests that subscription models are very hard to implement even for prestigious publishers with high value content like Forbes...
