Programmatic Display Advertising

Take Audience Targeting to the Next Level

Programmatic advertising uses software to buy, place, and optimise ads. Programmatic leverages real time bidding technology and sophisticated algorithms, rather than relying on humans to buy and place your ads. Considering the efficiencies that it drives in your ad spend and resources, it’s easy to see why programmatic has so quickly grown to account for over a billion dollars worth of advertising spend in Australia alone.

How Programmatic Works

  1. When a publisher’s webpage is loaded, programmatic software collects information about the website visitor and the context of the site.
  2. The information is sent back and forth to an ad exchange.
  3. Considering the user’s past online behaviour, the advertising space is auctioned off to the most relevant and highest bidder.

The whole process occurs in real time, and the experience is seamless for the website visitor.

This new approach to display advertising ensures your ads are targeted to the right users, at the exact right time, on the most relevant websites.

Dynamic Retargeting

Retargeting is a powerful media strategy that allows you to specifically serve ads to people who have previously interacted with your website. After they have left your site and continue exploring the web, we’re able to target them with ads that encourage them to return to you.

People who have already visited your website have started to warm up to your brand. They’re more likely to purchase than first-time visitors, so it’s essential to target them in your marketing efforts.

  • A good remarketing campaign will remind users about their positive experience with your brand.
  • A great remarketing campaign brings ‘lost’ customers back onto your website.

Programmatic is an emerging technology in the online marketing space. Get a head start by reading our FAQs.

  • Programmatic advertising takes advantage of real-time software to purchase digital advertising, as opposed to the traditional process that involves RFPs, human negotiations, and manual insertion orders. It is essentially the stock exchange of digital advertising.

  • Real-time bidding (RTB) is the purchase of digital advertising space in real time. During this process, algorithms and software automate the purchase, placement, and optimisation based on your brief.

  • DoubleClick is an integrated set of tools created by Google for agencies and advertisers to create and manage digital marketing campaigns.

  • $5,000 per campaign.

  • An ad exchange is a virtual marketplace allowing advertisers (us) and publishers (websites) to buy and sell advertising space in real time.

  • Both terms are often used interchangeably. While they have similar goals, they differ in their approach:

    Retargeting – the online placement of display ads, targeting users who have interacted with your website. Retargeting uses cookies and ads are placed by third parties, such as the Google Display Network.

    Remarketing – normally refers to e-mail campaigns that re-engage customers through their inbox.  

  • There are no minimum cost for retargeting, however we recommend a minimum of $2000 per month to allow enough data for optimisation.
