The Bonfire team joined over 800 others from the Western Australian advertising, media and communications industry this month at the new Crown Towers Ballroom for the 2017 Oasis Ball and Campaign Brief Awards.
Together, we celebrated our industry and raised funds for The Oasis Project; an initiative that supports the Salvation Army’s Crossroads West programme. This incredible programme is aimed at providing stable environments for young people who have had their home lives disrupted by their parents or guardian’s addiction, abuse or abandonment.
Bonfire finalist for Agency of the Year.
Loud cheers could be heard from our tables when it was announced that Bonfire was nominated for the ‘Agency of the Year’ award, and although we didn’t win the title this year, we were one of the finalists in this category.
Rene LeMerle, Bonfire’s Head of Marketing, finalist for Advertising Person of the Year
We were also extremely proud to see one of our own, Rene LeMerle, as a finalist for ‘Advertising Person of the Year’. Rene has been a valued part of our Bonfire family for over 12 years, and during this time has played a large role in overseeing Bonfire’s transition from ‘one of Perth’s expert digital marketing agencies’ to ‘Perth’s largest and most experienced digital performance agency’. Congratulations Rene, we’re lucky to have you as part of the #BonfireSquad!

You may have seen this warning in Google Analytics, but what exactly does it mean?
Google have recently announced an important update concerning their Google Analytics Remarketing Audiences which will change the way advertisers and marketers target audiences online. Essentially, Google will now start showing ads to users across multiple devices for advertisers using Remarketing Audiences built with Google Analytics. Cross-device remarketing has existed for some time now for advertisers using remarketing audiences built within AdWords, however this method was a manual and laborious task, requiring considerably more time and technical ‘know-how’ to achieve.
This new method, using the very simple audience-building tool in Google Analytics, gives advertisers the ability to reach more customers across their omni-channel buying journey, a change which has brought this method in line with platforms like Facebook who have been doing this for some time.
Buyer behaviour is constantly changing. According to a recent study:
“Six in 10 internet users will start shopping on one device but will continue or finish on a different one [device].”
This means more than half of buyers are accessible through multiple platforms and why it’s now essential advertisers distribute their ads across all the devices where their consumers may be researching, considering or eventually purchasing.
Previously, if an advertiser built a remarketing audience in Google Analytics – or a subset of website visitors from whom they wish to retarget with specific ads – then they would only be able to reach them via browser cookies on a singular device. Now, by using signed-in user data, ads can be shown to visitors across any device which is linked to their Google account.
Advertisers should reconsider the frequency and reach of their ads, now that they’re going to be seen across multiple devices. Ideally, each user should now see the same remarketing ads more times, meaning messages will constantly need to be fresh and appealing.

This year’s Deloitte Connected Small Business report has highlighted the increasing implementation of digital strategies by Australian SMB’s.
Since 2013, there has been a fifty percent increase in the number of businesses boasting an advanced level of digital engagement through activities like online advertising and search engine optimisation.
It’s unsurprising that a greater level of digital engagement pays off. Revenue growth, innovation and increased employment are some of the key benefits.
Here are some of the key takeaways from the report:
Our CEO, Clay Cook, has shared his views on the report with Campaign Brief, including rallying the industry as a whole to come together to break down the misgivings and barriers that are preventing businesses from increasing their adoption.

In 2015, Australian digital advertising spend increased 25% over the previous year and cracked $6 billion.
What makes this news such a milestone is the fact that it’s the fifth consecutive year of double-digit growth for the industry.
It’s news that doesn’t surprise our CEO, Clay.
This news solidifies the fact that advertisers have ‘seen the light’ and are investing more heavily in digital as it provides more opportunities to reach consumers. From mobile, to video and display advertising, digital is one of the few forms of advertising that continues to innovate and consistently deliver measurable results.
He has shared this thoughts on the news and where digital is heading with Campaign Brief.

The Bonfire Manifesto has arrived…
But what is it?
Good question…. It’s our new series of remarketing ads that you will see following you around the Internet.
They’re a little bit cheeky and witty – just like us!
Here’s a sneak peek of just a handful in the series. Enjoy!

We’ve just taken our advertising to the next level with a large scale billboard.
Where, you might ask?
Well, we could be cheeky and make you find it yourself, but that’s not our style.
It’s on Stirling Highway in Mosman Park (just near Glyde Street). So if you’re cruising through the western suburbs, keep an eye out for it!
In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek:
