What is Programmatic Advertising.

Programmatic advertising is the automated buying and selling of online advertising.  Targeting tactics are used to segment audiences using data so that advertisers only pay for ads delivered to the right people at the right time.  The market for digital advertising space is run by ad exchanges, who operate auctions that bring together both parties of the transaction.

  • Advertisers who want to buy advertising space on the internet.
  • Publishers, the website owners with digital space to sell.

The four components make up the framework of programmatic advertising.  A demand side platform (DSP), supply side platform (SSP), data management platform (DMP), and an ad exchange.

Programmatic advertising uses algorithmic software that handles the sale and placement of digital ad impressions via ad exchange platforms.  In addition, programmatic incorporates traffic data and targeting methods to serve impressions far more accurately, efficiently and at mass scale. This means better ROI for advertisers and publishers.

Demand-Side Platforms.

In every purchase of online ad space, there are two sides: the buyers (advertisers) and the sellers (publishers). Each side uses a computerized platform to facilitate the transaction on the ad exchange.  Publishers use Supply-Side Platforms and advertisers use Demand-Side Platforms (DSP).
