In 2016, an average of 65% of Australia’s digital advertising on mobile, tablet & desktop inventory was bought through programmatic or ad networks. The remaining 35% of all ad impressions were bought directly, not through programmatic buying.
Programmatic is no longer optional, its rather a necessity as evident by the growing number of Australia’s leading publishers moving in that direction.
Programmatic advertising, as everyone in our industry should know by now, is the automation of digital advertising. The advertiser simply allocates a budget aimed at a target audience for a specific campaign, and their ads are automatically placed on digital sites where the intended target audience encounters them.
As humans continue to incorporate machine learning in to digital advertising, it’s advisable for publishers to uphold Google’s 5 factors of Ad viewability – where 50% of ad pixels of a preferably vertical & above the fold ad unit, with relevant content – are in view on the screen for at least 1 second.
In addition to ad viewability, it’s vital for advertisers to ensure humans, within a brand-safe environment, are viewing their brands. As competition between publishers for advertisers budgets increases, investment in innovative technology that gives publishers the power to create and control is essential if they are to remain competitive – and that is exactly what 1Tag guarantees.
