  1. 1. Kritter Introduction By - Arjun Som (CEO) arjun.som@kritter.in 18-11-2014
  2. 2. Agency– Business Case An Agency or Trading desk, running trade on top of networks, Licensed, or third party platforms. -- Why home grow technology -- Why RTB -- Why Programmatic -- Why buy ready products and not build -- Why Kritter 18-11-2014
  3. 3. Business Case – Why Intellectual Property: Intellectual property is not ad-serving, RTB bidder, big data platform, Which most ad-tech companies claim. IP is when trade happens on these technologies, the learning your campaign managers get to isolate ROI techniques and provide scale to advertisers. Data: Inventory/supply, targeting, how granular should the targeting be, what creatives work, what time of day, what bid gets me the best traffic. That sliced by advertiser product offering. That sliced by advertiser feedback of the user in the flow, registered, engaged, bought, repeat buy etc.. Harnessing this data could lead to automating media planning and buying Programmatic: A system that incorporates media teams learning, provide a platform to automate redundant activities, moves them from low level to high level tasks of analyzing and acting Cost Chain: Agencies charge 15% on of the media spend, platform charge 15%, ROI player (retargeting, CPA) charge the arbitrage of bid Vs CPA, Ad-network charge flat 50%. On an average only 60% of your media budget is actually spent on buying media. Increase your operating margin! RTB: All supply is moving to exchanges with only remnant staying with ad-networks. All demand moving to platform with access to multiple supply sources to give single point access to media buying. Making your media buying unbiased with multiple supply sources is the market direction. Vertical Integration: Basic Economics, 80% of ad dollars are for performance, and 20% for brand. Stabilizing and de-risking your supply is the natural progression. Giving your sales team a technology where they can say YES to every business enquiry, with ease of global scale and no risk of fill rates Supply sources: Apart from keywords, which is company owned supply. All the other supply is with exchanges, or privately sold by premium publishers. All non exclusive supply sources are opening up for a media buyers to increase competition for their inventory which drives up their prices.
  4. 4. Business Case – Advantages • In this hyper-competitive market for agencies, with paper thin margins, differentiate yourself and improve your odds and business margins • Move away from black box platform, get better control and transparency on media buying • Automate redundant tasks, and move your team from low level tasks to high level tasks • Embed your media buying team’s learning/hunch into the technology bringing efficiency, fewer people can handle more business • Deepen your relationship with your advertiser by bringing tech on the table • Be more than a operations extension, get in to the marketing board room • Compete with global giants with a local approach, by acquiring technology they have and utilizing relationships you have • Avoid paying recurring fees against licensed technology, own it! • Avoid paying margins to networks and third party ad-tech players, while you do all the work • Increase relevance with your advertisers, by providing a full array of media buying capabilities • Plan the advertiser’s budget, instead of getting one assigned to you • Have device agnostic serving and buying technology to incorporate the future • Access the best supply through exchanges
