  6. 6. MARKET INSIGHTS The Flight to Transparency and The Importance of Audience o Greater transparency: the most successful ad networks are those that allow advertisers to specifically target inventory and audience, let publishers exclude certain ads, and can pinpoint when a given ad runs for either side o A shift to audience-based buys: instead of targeting users by keyword (or context), advertisers are actually buying publisher audiences CAMPAIGN
  7. 7. MARKET INSIGHTS Key Pain Points for Publishers o Channel Conflict hasn’t gone away o Media waste: Ad impressions go un- or under- monetized (like empty airplane seats) when ad networks themselves have more inventory than they can fill – leaving publishers in the lurch o Undervaluation of secondary premium inventory: if direct sales teams are best at selling premium ad units, and networks have historically generated value around less-premium inventory, what about the impressions in the middle — AKA secondary premium inventory?
  8. 8. CERTIFIED INVENTORY™ The Best Inventory on the Web o ComScore Top 500 publishers o 30+ content channels o Rubicon Certified Inventory™ – 26checkpoints guarantee quality
  9. 9. SECONDARY PREMIUM Secondary premium inventory: like merchandise that Gucci sells at Bloomingdale’s: high-end “display ad” inventory aimed at broader market with lower price point Publishers should be getting higher CPMs for this inventory than they are typically getting from most ad networks today
