Target your audience with precision, using data-driven digital campaigns.

Programmatic Ads

What is Programmatic Advertising?


Programmatic advertising is the use of automated technology for media buying (the process of buying advertising space), as opposed to traditional (often manual) methods of digital advertising. It utilises real time bidding, first, second and third party data and machine learning. To ensure your ads are delivered to the appropriate audience, they are analysed using various signals, which ensures that the right person, in the right location and at the right time is shown your ad.

Where do your ads appear?

Your ads can appear on over 120,000 websites and apps. The placements are based on where your target audience is browsing (and what they are browsing). Your business could show ads on sites such as BBC, MSN, Stuff, NZ Herald, CNN, Yahoo and Microsoft just to name a few.

Why invest in Programmatic Advertising?

Programmatic Advertising is the future of online advertising. It is a faster and smarter way to advertise in the digital space. You’re able to reach a much larger group of people at exactly the right moment when they’ll benefit the most from seeing your ads helping you to achieve a lower CPA and an overall better ROI.

How much do I need to invest?

Programmatic advertising accesses ad inventory from a wide range of websites and networks, and therefore requires a higher degree of media spending. As a guide, you will need a minimum of $5K per month, as anything less than that is not going to provide you with the results.
