Ad360: The Game-Changer in Programmatic Advertising

In the dynamic landscape of digital marketing, Ad360 is emerging as a revolutionary force in media buying. This platform isn’t just another tool in the advertising arsenal; it’s reshaping how ads reach audiences effectively and efficiently. Let’s explore what makes Ad360 a standout in programmatic advertising.

Broad Ad Inventory Access

Ad360 boasts a remarkable ability to access billions of impressions daily across over 160 million websites and apps globally. This wide reach ensures your brand can achieve significant visibility and engagement with a diverse audience.

Access to Google Authorized Buyers and OpenRTB

Ad360 leverages the strengths of both Google Authorized Buyers AdExchange (Google AdX) and is implementing OpenRTB protocol to access any programmatic inventory. Google AdX offers premium, brand-safe environments for your ads, ensuring they are placed on credible and relevant sites. Simultaneously, OpenRTB enhances the ad buying process with efficient, real-time bidding, allowing for optimal ad placement and audience targeting.

Advanced Targeting Options

Ad360’s suite of targeting options enables advertisers to craft highly customized campaigns:

  1. Retargeting: By tracking users who have previously visited your website or interacted with your brand, Ad360 can display your ads to them as they browse other sites. This increases the likelihood of converting previous visitors into customers, as it keeps your brand top of mind.
  2. Geo-Targeting & Hyperlocal: Customize your ad campaigns based on users’ physical locations, from broad regions to specific local areas. This is especially useful for localized promotions or for businesses with physical stores wanting to attract nearby customers.
  3. Device Targeting: Tailor your ads based on whether users are on desktops, tablets, or mobile phones. This helps in optimizing the ad format and message to suit the device preference of your target audience, enhancing user engagement.
  4. Day Parting: Choose the time of day or week when your ads will appear. This is crucial for targeting users when they are most active online or when your product or service is most relevant, like advertising breakfast items in the morning.
  5. First Party Audience: Utilize your own data, like website visitor behavior or customer databases, to create highly targeted and personalized advertising campaigns. This can significantly improve conversion rates and customer loyalty.
  6. Site Lists (Whitelists and Blacklists): Gain control over where your ads are displayed by creating lists of preferred websites (whitelists) or sites to avoid (blacklists). This ensures brand safety and relevance to your target audience.
  7. Viewability Filters: Filter out non-viewable ad placements, focusing your spend on spots where ads are actually seen by users. This improves the overall effectiveness of your ad spend.
  8. Historical CTR Filters: Use data on past ad performance to choose sites and placements that have historically high engagement rates. This predictive approach can lead to better campaign performance.
  9. Position Targeting: Select specific ad positions on a webpage, such as above the fold (visible without scrolling) or next to premium content. This strategic placement can significantly increase visibility and engagement.
  10. Languages: Target users based on their language preferences, ensuring that your ads are always in a language that your audience understands. This is particularly beneficial for international campaigns.
  11. Video Placements: Choose the right environment for your video ads, whether it’s within streaming content (in-stream) or in traditional web placements (out-stream). This maximizes the impact and engagement of your video content.

These targeting options collectively enhance the reach, relevance, and effectiveness of your advertising efforts.

Making Sense of Smart Advertising with Ad360

When it comes to online advertising, there’s a lot of technical talk that can seem overwhelming. But it’s really about one thing: making sure the right people see your ads at the right time and place, without overspending. Here’s how Ad360 does it differently, and better, with a focus on precision targeting.

Aiming for Quality Views

In a digital advertising campaign, you want your ads to be visible to users. That means they should appear where users can easily see them when they’re browsing the internet. This is what we call “viewable impressions.” The higher the number of viewable impressions, the more potential customers are seeing your ad.

The Challenge: Safe and Selective Placement

Placing ads isn’t just about being seen; it’s also about being seen in the right context. “Brand safety” is the term used to describe the effort to ensure that ads only appear on websites that align with the brand’s values and image. It’s a bit like screening the neighborhoods before you open a new store; you want it to be a good fit.

Outperforming the Competition

Ad360 used what’s known as a “performance-style optimization approach.” This means that even though the campaign’s main goal was branding, we used techniques commonly applied in performance marketing to enhance the results. We set stricter viewability filters than competing platforms but managed to keep costs down. This resulted in a more efficient spend, where the client paid less but got more high-quality ad views.

Here’s how much better we did:

  • 45% lower cost per viewable thousand impressions (vCPM) than Xandr
  • 66% lower vCPM than DV360

Adhering to High Standards

Even with aggressive targeting and cost-saving strategies, we maintained strict standards for:

  • Click-Through Rate (CTR): We ensured that the proportion of viewers who clicked on the ads remained high.
  • Brand Safety: We carefully selected the online environments where the ads would appear to maintain the brand’s reputation.
  • Whitelisting: We only placed ads on pre-approved sites known to be effective and safe for the brand’s image.

The Bottom Line: Precision Equals Performance

In programmatic advertising, which involves using automated technology to buy and sell ad space, precision is key. It’s not enough to just throw your ad into the digital world and hope for the best. Ad360’s approach shows that by being smart about where and how your ads are placed, and by paying close attention to viewability and brand safety, you can get more value out of every dollar spent.

This case study serves as an example of how Ad360 helps brands achieve their advertising goals more efficiently than competitors. By focusing on quality and strategic placement, Ad360 delivers branding campaigns that are not just visible, but also safe and cost-effective.
