  14. 14. It will be interesting to see whether a) KakaoStory opens its Ad API, or b) Naver Band or Naver’s mobile inventories adopt at least closed-RTB system in its ad platform. Programmatic: Steady Growth But Not Fast Enough Due To Bottleneck Mobile Marketing Conference 2016 P V N a) KakaoStory : Opening Ad API? • KakaoStory may be opening its Ad API to source more advertising campaigns by connecting to DSPs directly in customized way (following Facebook’s strategy) • However, advancement of the platform should be preceded. Fixed Price Real-TimeBidding • As programmatic concept has been distributed a lot among marketers and publishers recent years, Closed-RTB will be heavily adopted by more and more publishers, transforming from fixed price/reservation type ad unit. A B b) Naver Band and Naver Mobile : Closed-RTB? • Thinking about Naver’s traditional ad sales strategy so far, it won’t be easy for them to make it biddable. However, there is still chance that they will adopt closed-RTB for some of the 2nd tier inventories, other than timeboard on its main page, including Band.
