  7. 7. When to Use Prospecting Strategies • When a Campaign’s Goal is to Create Brand Awareness • When a Client’s Site has fewer than 20,000 Estimated Uniques per month. Prospecting New Users helps build the Retargeting Pool via Targeted Traffic • When Client’s KPI’s focus mainly on CTR and eCPC, Branding is a Key Element • When a Campaign’s Measurement is CPM focused • When a Campaign Requires a plethora of Clicks to the Site • When a Campaign Requires very Specific Audiences ie: Targeting HHI, Age, Gender, Edu, etc. • When a Campaign Requires a Specific Site/White List RETARGETING
  8. 8. ATD New Prospecting Strategies RETARGETING •Crawlers scan the content of sites and based on relevant keywords and/or customizable categories, displays ads on the sites that are a fit. This is a Page-level keyword and contextual strategy Contextual & Keyword Targeting • Matching the client’s keyword with a user searching for that same term via all search engines Keyword Search Targeting •Running Pre-Mid or Post-Roll Video on Targeted Sites with Video Video Completion Rates Visibility •Displaying ads to users who appear on specific verticals ie: Fashion, Education, Automotive etc Channel/Vertical Targeting •Outlook users migrated from Hotmail & view ads while on their Outlook Webmail. Exclusive inventory that allows only one advertiser on page & garners strong CTR's. Yahoo allows larger 300x600 ads and tends to yield higher CTR Outlook & Yahoo Targeting •The Look-Alike Modeling strategy uses the DMP to ID the most valuable first-party data traffic and matches the DMP data to the first-party data. Need at least 50K Cookies for this strategy to be viable Look-A-Like Modeling •The algorithm selects data segments with a high likelihood of driving campaign performance & automatically adjusts audiences as the campaign progresses.

CTR goals can average 3-6x improvement Predictive Audience •IP and Zip Code Targeting to connect with users in specific IP and/or Zip Code areas.

  9. 9. When To Use Retargeting Strategies: • When a client’s site has in excess of at least 20,000 estimated Unique Visitors per Month. ATD requires a robust cookie pool in order to achieve successful Retargeting campaign results. Only 7-10% of the Uniques can be used toward a Monthly Retargeting budget • Performance Driven Campaigns demanding specific CPA and ROAS Goals • CPM, CPC & CTR Rates take on less importance as Conversions and Revenue drive the KPIs. Retargeting strategies force higher CPM's and CPC's and tend to draw a lower CTR, mainly because we are forced to bid higher on limited retargeted cookies • No focus on the Geo as we only want to capture users who have shown intent when they initially visited the client’s site • Retargeting can also be used as a Branding Strategy as users are delivered multiple retargeting ads, ensuring that the Brand is top of mind • Retargeting is key for Cross-Selling campaigns RETARGETING
  10. 10. ATD Leverages All Major Retargeting Strategies RETARGETING • Retarget Users anywhere on the internet.

  11. 11. The Data Alliance & FBX Just recently, Data Alliance agreed to change its price model from CPM to Revenue Share in order to accelerate 3rd party data performance. Data Alliance is used to successfully grow Client’s Limited Cookie Pool as ATD couples it with inexpensive FBX Inventory – This Successful Strategy is unique to ATD as the Data Alliance exclusively sells on a Rev Share Price Model through ATD alone. RETARGETING o In the past, layering 3rd party audience data on top of FBX CPMs was too costly o FBX CPMs are typically between $0.20 - $1, and 3rd Party Audience Targeting can add another $1- $3, hurting efficiency o The Data Alliance revolutionized 3rd Party Audience Pricing by charging a % of CPM, instead of a flat fee Example Campaign Targeting Females: Data Alliance: Fee of 12% For Targeting Females  On FBX, if the CPM is $0.30, the additional cost for Data Alliance is only 12%, or $0.03, making your total CPM cost about $0.33  Compare this to typical 3rd party data pricing where targeting Females costs a flat $0.75. $0.75 for data + $0.30 CPM fee = $1.05 (3X higher than targeting with The Data Alliance)
  12. 12. Outlook New User Prospecting Strategy • Outlook Offers Two creative sizes: • 100x72, static only, <40kb • 160x600, static only, <40kb • Only ONE advertisement per page and ATD has exclusive access to this CTR Driven Strategy! Example of Outlook 100x72 Ad Format: RETARGETING
  13. 13. FBX Newsfeed & Right Hand Rail New Ad Format The Facebook Exchange has recently introduced new ad sizes featuring the same ad unit dimensions for both RHR and Newsfeed section. The 1200x627 will accommodate both sections yet the RHR will be reduced in size on the page. FBX has also increased the Frequency cap to 2/24 from the previously set 1/24 and additionally, if a user ‘likes’ the a Newsfeed or Advertiser page, ATD is able to serve that user 4 ads within a 24 hour period, allowing for more targeted volume RETARGETING

  16. 16. What Is Predictive How? Audience and Look Alike Modeling?

New Brand Safety Features does not allow any Adult, Alcohol, Drug, Hate Speech, Illegal Download or Offensive Language Content to come into contact with your client’s Brand Viewability targets the Top 10-75% of Impressions most likely to be viewed for the longest time Suspicious Activity Blocks Very High Risk sites above and beyond the ATD’s daily updated Block Lists which are already in place.
