WHAT IS PROGRAMMATIC?

Programmatic is an algorithmic real time ad buying and selling process, where software automates purchasing, optimization and placement of media inventory by using a bidding-based system. Modern evolutions in this technology include the use of omnichannel platforms with AI technology and data integration that offers greater tracking clarity, with deeper predictability and stronger consumer insights.

WHY SHOULD MARKETERS CARE?

By leveraging the future of programmatic technology, marketers can build more targeted ads for consumers that are a stronger match to the content being delivered. Programmatic systems, such as blockchain verification of legitimate traffic, and advanced AI data technology, allows for advertisement opportunities to become advanced in their ability to deliver the right messages and offers, to the right audiences, at the best time for each consumer, all while offering unprecedented media buying transparency.

HOW CAN IT HELP YOUR BUSINESS?

Staying current on the future of programmatic positions businesses to leverage the new transparency and efficiency of advanced data integration and AI technology to target and reach consumers. Advances in the programmatic space give marketers greater control and more information over their ad spending.

 

They can also focus more on the creative aspects of advertising, as AI technology takes care of the data and systems integration. As programmatic’s reach extends beyond the digital ecosystem into more traditional channels such as TV and Out-of-Home (OOH), marketers can go even further with data-driven, personalized advertising.

“In the future, programmatic technology will be able to control both the target and the context of ad delivery. It will cross the TV-digital barrier and optimize online and offline sales on the fly, detecting how certain combinations of media and creative executional sequencing changes the sales effects. All these technical innovations depend ultimately on the people that brands trust to guide the development of programmatic in these directions, while also pinning the needle on privacy, protection, and transparency.”
