With the advent of technology in almost all spheres of normal lives, it is impossible for business organizations to deny the power that the great big online space holds for them. Not only is the internet a cheaper alternative to promote one’s products and services, but it is also effective in reaching out to millions at the same time often denying the constraints that geographical conditions seem to provide. It is therefore of the utmost importance that companies can reach out to the maximum number of potential customers on the internet and help generate as much interest in their product as possible. However, this can be quite a daunting task providing the clamor and confusion present within the digital ecosystem.
Earlier users had to select different advertising mediums to portray their advertisements on different channels and this seemed quite a formidable task, however with the advent of programmatic advertising it has reduced the workload to a great extent. The automation makes the process more organized and efficient and transactions now follow a very streamlined pattern. Programmatic advertising has now increased its outreach to most platforms of technology including computers, mobiles, laptops, and tablets, and connected TVs, basically anything and everything that can be connected through the internet.
Programmatic advertising has helped to segment our target audience and focus the advertisers’ potential attention on them. This has mostly helped advertisers pay for ads that are focused only on curating to the right people at the right time rather than just putting it out there and hoping it reaches the target audience within the stipulated time. With the advent of the digital age and massive improvements being in the sphere of the computer and design algorithms buying ads and placing them effectively has become easier than ever before. This also helps to save time when actually being circulated in the digital marketplace.
One might ask what all this hype surrounding programmatic advertising is for is. According to the US digital advertising agencies, programmatic advertising alone contributed around 25.48 billion dollars to the industry. By this year the industry is expected to grow more than two and a half times. The main reason contributing to the success of programmatic advertising is a strong algorithm that analyses user data and inputs and identifies the target segment. A campaign’s success increases with the amount of data being analyzed.
The first and foremost benefit that programmatic advertising provides is its data-driven structure wherein companies can take decisions based on actual inputs. It also helps to achieve better targeting wherein it has become possible to target multiple segments in real-time. It also provides streamlined campaign management by consolidating all campaigns as one and helping you to work on each individually. It is also extremely easy to access ad inventories where the algorithm is doing most of the heavy lifting for you. It is safe to say that programmatic advertising is indeed the new future of ads, with so many improvements being already made in the field of machine language and technology it is bound to change the way we have always thought about conventional advertising.
