SPOS #320 - The Early Days Of Online Advertising With Cory Treffiletti

Welcome to episode #320 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast. Banner advertising took hold in 1994. By 1998, I was deeply involved in the online advertising space. If you thought selling digital marketing through to the c-suite is hard in 2012, imagine what it was like back in 1998. It's hard to believe that it was 14 years ago. While I was active in the digital marketing space prior to getting involved in online media, it was fascinating trying to sell those banner ads back in the day. I remember people like Bryan Eisenberg, Joseph Jaffe, Tom Hespos and Cory Treffiletti being active back then too. Cory is currently the SVP of Marketing at BlueKai and a weekly contributor to MediaPost. More recently, Cory published his first book, Internet Ad Pioneers: The Stories Of The Unsung People Behind The Birth And Growth Of The Internet Ad Industry (Volume 1). I was honored that he asked me to be a part of this business book, and it's a great read for those of us who remember that time like it as yesterday. I was surprised that Cory hasn't been on the podcast before, and I'm thrilled that he agreed to play along this time. Enjoy the conversation...

    The banner ad discussion was well worth the time. You guys really peeled it back and I felt like I came away with a deeper understanding of that strategy and it's historical background and context. The dissenting opinions were thought-provoking. Good job!
