Programmatic is not just for direct response Display brand buys need to perform
Quote from Bob: "Before programmatic buying we were doing direct and ad network buys. The process was that the brands would give an audience brief and our agency partner would look for the sites that 'over-indexed' for that type of consumer using their internal tools and gut- 'spray and pray.'“ The results are in…and looking good.

Quote from Bob: "When we moved to experiment in programmatic buying we also implemented across company in-market metrics that measured areas like- demo targeting, frequency and view-ability. We found that programmatic buying excelled in each area and was cheaper." We're getting ads to the right audience. From the onset, we've shown the ability to show strong performance against Kellogg's key campaign success metrics: what percent of our impressions are hitting their desired audience and how many of those ad impressions were actually viewed on a user's screen.
We're paying an efficient rate for audience views . We haven't just measured what the overall CPM for our buys is. We calculate an effective CPM based on our on-target impression and "in view" percentages. These "effective" rates are the lowest on RTB display compared to other channels.
Before programmatic buying we were doing direct and ad network buys. The process was that the brands would give an audience brief and our agency partner would look for the sites that “over-indexed” for that type of consumer using their internal tools and gut- “spray and pray”. So when we moved to experiment in programmatic buying we also implemented across company in-market metrics that measured areas like- demo targeting, frequency and view-ability. We found that programmatic buying excelled in each area and was cheaper.
