Programmatic is a very common term being thrown around in the world of AdTech and MarTech a lot these days. With context to the industry, this means the same thing as its literal definition; where all the processes are automated and need no manual intervention. This opens up doors to new possibilities and pushing the limits. With greater computing power and the right Ad serving solutions, there is virtually very less limitation to what you can do with the technology.
RTB – Real Time Bidding, what goes on backstage?
As the name suggests, the entire process of auctioning for an ad space happens in a ridiculously short amount of time and also millions of times in a day. This kind of speed and performance is mindboggling and would never ever be possible if it was done manually.
RTB speculates the display inventory to be bought by the individual and unique impression through an effective bidding system. As mentioned earlier, the entire process unfolds in a matter of milliseconds before a webpage could be loaded or reloaded by a viewer. The cost-efficient and targeting possibilities on offer with RTB make it a revolutionary force to be reckoned with in all of Adtech.
For instance, when a viewer intends to access any website page when the page loads on his/her browser, an immediate request would be passed on to an ad exchange. Here in the ad exchange the ad inventory or ad slots would be available along with the data about the viewer from his past interaction saved on cookies or third-party data like their interests, location, gender, nationality, online behaviour, and more. Advertisers who are interested in targeting to the intended set of users will then take part in the auction to win the privilege to serve their creatives. The advertiser who has won the bid would then serve their creative to the viewer when the complete webpage loads. Keep in mind that all these happen in a matter of milliseconds.
Real time bidding vs. Programmatic advertising
A naïve user might be lead into thinking that both RTB and programmatic advertisings are one and the same. But that is not the case; when we observed you’d be able to spot the subtle differences that prove that they are different from the significant other.
In layman terms, RTB is a technology wherein it creates a common space for both ad inventory and campaigns to bid and sell; Whereas Programmatic is nothing but an automated method used for ad buying.
Advertisements are commonly distributed using a platform called ad server and when the platform is integrated with RTB network, it can buy or sell the ads from third-party ad exchanges. The programmatic advertisement also implies the same process of enabling the RTB techniques in both advertiser and publisher side to perform automated buying and selling of digital advertisements. The method is followed using a platform called DSP which has advertiser ads and campaign details of created advertisements. The promoters can bid on the selective ads and purchase it from online ad exchanges.
Experts say that a considerable volume of Ad serving worldwide would adopt Programmatic in a couple of years.
