Native Ad Company Vibrant Enters Programmatic Space

Vibrant Media, a native ad network, on Thursday announced its official entrance to the programmatic space by taking its private ad exchange out of beta.

The company says it began beta testing the exchange in March 2014 with 600 buyer participants. The exchange features desktop, smartphone and tablet inventory, per a release. In-image ad units are available via the exchange, and the company says in-text ad units will be introduced in the future.

“Constant customization, offline negotiation and lack of scale makes the majority of native ad campaigns cost and time prohibitive for many marketers,” stated Craig Gooding, founder of Vibrant Media. He added: “Early results [from the beta test] are indicating this is the way forward to accelerate even further investment in programmatic advertising.”

Users of the new Vibrant exchange will be able to target audiences, which is what much of programmatic advertising revolves around. However, the company is also letting advertisers target consumers based on Vibrant’s contextual data.

    Making high impact ad units available programmatically is a huge undertaking-- congrats to the Vibrant team. Advertisers will no doubt benefit, but this can also serve as an excellent opportunity to onboard "premium" publishers who have been reticent to join the programmatic bandwagon to date.

    Three cheers for Vibrant. They guys, like Airpush and only a few others, understand programmatic, RTB, native, etc. better than most...
