why your business should have a solid programmatic strategy?
Agencies and marketers continue to see programmatic as an essential part of their future. It remains the most efficient way for advertisers and media agencies to connect with publishers and operate large-scale ad campaigns.
In traditional marketing efforts the analysis and optimization of campaigns are established after they have finished. Programmatic marketing ad campaigns are updated and optimized in real time.
Programmatic marketing can be especially valuable for B2B ad campaigns; in many B2C campaigns it is beneficial to target a mass audience, however, in the B2B sector the target audience of key decision makers is often much smaller / specialized and therefore is very well suited to a programmatic marketing approach.
A hugely differentiated factor of programmatic marketing is the sheer volume of tests you can actually run, meaningfully in any given time period.
Most marketers appreciate having control over their work because it allows us to exert more control over outcomes. When you can directly influence the ROI of your next programmatic ad campaign you take back the control that has traditionally been held by managed service vendors.
