Good Morning.

Today is very special for me: today I am celebrating my 47th birthday (25 years as a digital marketer… more than half of my life). This birthday is coming after 225 days staying indoors, expecting it to be for many more weeks and months (as the world is starting to get into its 2nd lockdown worldwide).

A few things happening:

1) Shopify confirms data breach and says two support staff stole customer data from sellers.

2) Reddit is now offering three tier levels to allow advertisers a decision over the type of reach vs. the type of content they would like for their ads.

3) This Chrome extensions turns articles into audio playlists.

4) LinkedIn launches updated look, makes LinkedIn stories available to all users.

5) Remote learning app usage up 91% as school restarts.

One more cool thing…

Each year, DMEXCO is unlike any other past versions of itself, bringing forth new topics and ideas, new speakers, and many new and valuable insights. This year, however, DMEXCO was really different than it has been in the past. For the first time ever, the event went virtual.

In lieu of the usual seats on stage, Taboola’s Founder & CEO, Adam Singolda, and the CEO of customer lifecycle management marketing company Zeta Global, David A. Steinberg, talked with one another from a bit of a different setting—their own living rooms.

Throughout their talk, real-life friends Singolda and Steinberg navigate the changing business trends they’ve seen throughout the year—everything from the all-too-familiar feeling of how surreal it is to be conducting interviews via Zoom, the human and business challenges of the past several months, to what data-driven trends the future may hold, and more in between.
