AdExchanger: The Seventh Deadly Sin Of Digital: Reach And Frequency

MightyHive CRO Ming Wu gets down into the weeds on AdExchanger.

Are you only getting average (mean) reporting numbers from your partners? Consider asking for median to see if the distribution is skewed—you might find that your partners are committing the seventh deadly sin of digital.

This is serious stuff. The average values in your reporting could be masking skewed distributions in your reach and frequency. In other words, some audience members are barely seeing any ads (meaning you have wasted budget on people who will not see your ads enough for the ads to have any impact), while others are being inundated (meaning you have wasted budget serving ads beyond what was need to elicit recall or response).

Once you’re up to speed and you’re looking for ways to manage reach and frequency across publisher partners, check out the recent MightyHive / DoubleClick webinar on Programmatic Guaranteed. The more you’re able to consolidate your ad buys under one programmatic solution, the better you can ensure that reach and frequency targets are being met (and have clear insight if they’re not).

Webinar March 22: MightyHive and DoubleClick Explore Programmatic Guaranteed



On March 22 at 10am PST, MightyHive CEO Pete Kim and Google Programmatic Deals Manager Joel Aranson will explore how Programmatic Guaranteed can boost the efficiency and precision of your campaigns.

Consolidating direct and open auction ad buys through a single platform delivers several key advantages. When direct and open auction buys are managed separately, marketers lack the ability to precisely control reach and frequency, resulting in sub-optimal performance and wasted impressions.

In fact, consolidating management of direct and open auction buys was found by Nielsen to lead to an 11% increase in reach efficiency, meaning that for the same investment, brands reached 11% more unique consumers.
