As a company, who specialise on all things related to paid search, recently more and more people are asking us. What is programmatic advertising?
What is programmatic advertising and why is it different?
So what is programmatic advertising. Let me talk firstly about display advertising. This method of advertising has been around for many, many years, however in its current format people who use it as part of their marketing mix are conscious that it isn’t the most highly targeted, it is very hard to manage and track, especially through tablet or mobile and is more inclined to having the killing a mosquito with a cannon ball effect. Things have now changed! For the better, so what is programmatic advertising? It is a more cost effective way of targeting your demographic through display advertising. It can target a geo area, gender, age and include buying habits and online search habits.
Take this as a simple example;
If you wanted to target females in Manchester, age between 20 and 25, who have recently or just purchased a smart phone, you can target them with a smart phone cover advert. Even if they have never visited your website before!
Hopefully this will go some way in explaining what is programmatic advertising.
