The Brave New World of Advertising

MIX | Sessions


Worldwide – Approximately 6,000 Advertisers account for >80% of all ad spending (~5,000 in US account for >90% of US ad spending)

  • Advertising Needs Massive Automation
  • Market is manual (phone calls and email drive everything)
  • Market is opaque (no pricing transparency)
  • Market is inefficient (loads of remnant inventory drives prices lower – see #2)

Along comes the ad exchange:

  • Add transparency to the mix
  • Increase liquidity by letting all advertisers bid / buy across all networks
  • Drive market efficiency
  • In a world where exchanges exist, every impression can be evaluated and a bid price can be set – in real time
  • When this is possible, the price can be adjusted up and down based on confidence of driving a campaign goal
  • Campaign goals in search today are generally based on performance (Driving a sale)
  • In the future, the system can optimize against other goals – such as driving awareness of a brand, or changing perceptions of the audience, or changing purchase intent
