When publishers are considering their programmatic strategy, they need to make a number of important decisions. In the early days of programmatic, publishers made many of these decisions on the fly. However, as the real-time ad sales market matures some clearer patterns have evolved for how publishers manage their overall strategy.
We have identified seven categories of publishers – each reflecting a different approach to creating opportunity from the real-time ad sales marketplace. While there are a variety of approaches to balancing revenue goals with customer experience, we tried to broadly define these categories so that most publishers will be able to determine where they fit.
The characteristics and challenges of each of these publisher categories are outlined in the slideshow below. You can read the original piece, “What Type of Publisher are You?” in the Programmatic Outlook Report.
