It would be a shame to miss out on the fastest growing online advertising opportunity, wouldn’t it? iProgrammed advertising spend grew by 27% last year and is forecast to reach $100 billion this year.

What is a programmatic ad type?

Programmatic advertising is the technology behind automated media buying, as opposed to the traditional (manual) ways of buying online advertising space.

Different programmatic algorithms can serve the right ads to the right user in the right place at the right time.

Programmed media buying can be divided into three types:

  • Real-time bidding (RTB): this is an open marketplace for ad placements, where the price of an ad placement is decided by a real-time auction. This is considered a cost-effective way to buy display advertising.

  • Private marketplace (PMP): The algorithm works in a similar way to open auctions, but these private marketplaces are invitation-based and only available to selected advertisers.

  • Programmatic Direct: If a website owner wants to do a 1-for-1 deal with a media buyer, this is called a Programmatic Direct deal. These ad placements are the most “premium”, but also the most expensive.
