Camouflaged to look like a recent conversation, my digital marketing brain rejoiced at clever ad placement while my consumer mind revolted at the intrusion of yet another intimate space. My inner consumer won the battle and saw me blocking a Facebook ad for the very first time. It got me thinking. How many others were doing the same and what did this mean for the real estate industry? According to eMarketer one in four US internet users say they block ads. While Medium ranked Content Marketing as one of the top 5 trends to combat Adblock. This comes as no surprise as content marketing is about providing […]
