Media bought programmatically, or in an automated way is now unavoidable for most advertising agencies and advertisers. It is also part of the publisher’s landscape to some extent. Are there only benefits to programmatic buying? No, there are actually quite a few serious problems that face publishers specifically.
As the moderator, my task was to keep the discussion flowing along programmatic issues and ensure my client (The Exchange Lab) didn’t slip into sales pitch mode.
This time we will explore another category of ad tech specifically tailored for the real-time bidding and programmatic media buying ecosystem: RTB Tech.
This X-Series event is your chance to get the answers you need to be successful. In addition to industry-leading keynote speakers, the half-day will host three topic-specific panels that will address RTB trends relative to Quebec, RTB’s role & business model, and programmatic buying challenges in Quebec. This event will be in both French and English.
Real Time Bidding is all the rage around the world and Canada is no different. eMarketer recently published a report on the explosive growth or RTB around the world quoting new data from Forrester, IDC and Accordant Media. While some agencies have been using RTB to some extent in the last year or two, most are still grasping at the very concept of what this is, how it works and what it can really do for them. At the same time, publishers are worried this is just another way to commoditize their inventory, further driving down CPMs. Ad networks however are quick to catch on to the potential this represents to them and they are jumping in with both feet.
Similar in methodology to retargeting, behavioral targeting and intent-to-buy targeting, past purchase targeting seeks to enable displaying an ad to a user that had recently (usually in the last 7 days but that would depend on the type of purchase) made a particular purchase. This type of targeting is not good for all campaigns or even all brands. However there are numerous cases where a follow up sale is more than likely.
Intent to buy targeting is similar to behavioral and retargeting in the sens that you’ll target someone somewhere who’s demonstrated a defined behavior somewhere else. The difference lies in the de defined behavior – in this case a clear demonstration of intent-to buy. More specifically, that agreed-upon behavior is recent – most often is from the past 7 days – so that the user in question is quite possibly STILL in the market to buy that product of service.
