  • Why It's Time to Step On The Scale in Programmatic Insider on 05/12/2015

    Although we're only in Q2 of 2015, we're already seeing a trend take shape that will impact our industry like never before: scale. While much of our industry's recent history was built on the back of data, we're now seeing that it's not enough to have data unless you have data at scale. Those companies that don't have data at scale won't be able to reach new and existing customers in an effective manner. Here are a few topics marketers, publishers and agencies alike should consider as they begin to evaluate the world of scalable data:

  • Navigating The Holiday Season's Bidding Frenzy  in Programmatic Insider on 10/23/2014

    The lines have blurred when it comes to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, as consumers now engage in both online and offline shopping activity all weekend long. What tends to happen during a high volume-shopping period is that the number of advertisers bidding on audiences increases signficantly, which drives up the bid price. As bid prices go up, so does the cost per acquisition, making it much more costly to acquire a customer. Inventory can also be harder to come by. As RTB matures, companies will become better equipped to deal with the holiday rush. Here are some things you can do to make sure you reach your customers with the right campaign at the right price.

  • Sizing Up RTB's Value For Large And Small Businesses  in Programmatic Insider on 09/15/2014

    The recent shift to real-time buying (RTB) and growth of programmatic marketing has changed the traditional way of buying display media, making it more actionable for smaller businesses than ever before. With traditional forms of display advertising, advertisers had to cough up large sums upfront in order to reach their target audience for a given campaign. The challenge for SMBs was that they didn't have access to the sizable budgets of larger advertisers, and therefore felt limitations in terms of scale and reach. However, because of the influx of programmatic marketing and real-time buying, algorithms are enabling the right ads to be delivered to the right users in real-time using dynamic pricing models.

  • The Simple Side Of Programmatic in Programmatic Insider on 07/24/2014

    Despite the momentum from many major players in the marketing space, recent research by the Association of National Advertisers (ANA) and Forrester Consulting found that more than half of the marketers surveyed didn't understand programmatic well enough to buy and execute campaigns with it. Further, just one-quarter of U.S. client-side marketers understand and are using programmatic technology.

  • The Value Of Creative Messaging In Our Real-Time World  in Programmatic Insider on 06/08/2014

    According to the October 2013 report from Magna Global, it's estimated that worldwide programmatic ad spending and RTB will hit $12 billion this year. The growth in RTB is mostly driven by the ability for marketers to segment their audiences and target them effectively using all types of data from site visits to CRM and search data. When you apply automated buying and data to the actual creative, the message becomes extremely relevant to the end user, and, in many cases, will differ from consumer to consumer. Changing the creative elements of an ad is most commonly referred to as dynamic creative.

  • The Age Of Automation in Programmatic Insider on 05/08/2014

    Automation is the name of the game. For the marketing industry, automated technology has been illuminated through the recent rise of programmatic buying and RTB technology. As a result, everyone in the ecosystem -- from marketers to ad agencies, publishers and ad tech companies -- has experienced massive shifts in their products, whom they hire, and how they buy media, value an impression, and reach an audience. While RTB technologies and programmatic buying continue to fuel the momentum behind marketing automation, common themes are being called into question.
