THE MANY WAYS TO BUY DIGITAL MEDIA VIA PROGRAMMATIC

In Adsmovil we partnered with PubMatic to launch the first US Hispanic Mobile Ad Exchange, and as we dig deeper into this fascinating new world, I thought it would be good to clarify some terms.

First, RTB is not the same as Programmatic.   RTB (Real Time Bidding) is just one of many protocols to buy media.   Programmatic and RTB are confused because Programmatic started with the automatic buying of media via an RTB protocol.

However, nowadays as Programmatic has progressed and companies continued to innovate, there are many new protocols for buying digital media.   For example, many premium publishers are providing media buyers with the possibility of buying guaranteed impressions.   They set a fixed CPM for those impressions and no auction is required.

For a more detailed account on all the options under Programmatic, Justin Re’s article titled “Bidding Goodbye to ‘RTB’” is excellent.  Justin Re is the Associate Director of Product Management at PubMatic.

THE FORGOTTEN IMPORTANCE OF BRANDING IN DIGITAL ADVERTISTING

eMarketer’s recent projection that said US Digital Display Ad Spending will Surpass Search Ad Spending in 2016 , led me to think that finally Branding is being given the importance it deserves in digital media.   If we analyze the sources of growth in eMarketer’s projection , these seem to support my assumption.   Video, Sponsorships, and […]

AirBnB vs. Marriott: How come it could be worth more?

In one of my last blog entries, I wrote about Uber.   This time, I am writing about AirBnb, a marketplace selling accommodations. An article on the Wall Street Journal caught my attention: It seems that AirBnB is worth more than Marriott International with its 4,000 hotels under management and US$13.8bn in revenue.  In contrast, AirBnB […]
