What is programmatic advertising and why should you care?

Programmatic Advertising

Programmatic advertising spending is now in the billions and growing over 20% each year.

Digital advertising is an important tool for every growing business. What makes it tricky is its amorphous nature in the digital age. Tactics that were deemed essential a few years ago are left by the wayside as technology becomes more sophisticated.

There’s no better example of this than programmatic advertising. This form of media buying takes the guesswork out of digital advertising using machine learning and AI.

In this post, we’ll explain how it all works and why you should care. Keep reading and bring your marketing efforts into 2023.

What is programmatic advertising?

Programmatic advertising is one of the most effective new tools for getting your ads in front of the right people. Using AI and real-time buying, you can completely automate the ad buying process. This allows you to streamline your digital advertising strategy and make it more effective.

In the traditional ad-buying process, a business owner, CMO, or media officer would pour over the data manually. They’d make educated guesses about how, where, and when to target a particular type of customer.

Programmatic advertising allows you to take on massive pools of data. Using sophisticated algorithms, they decide which ad space to buy and how much to pay for them. In the end, it saves you huge amounts of time and money, while creating a more effective ad campaign.


There are numerous benefits to programmatic advertising. One of the biggest is unparalleled targeting abilities. Numerous factors are considered depending on your needs, whether it’s the context of the website the ad is on or the behavior of the target customer.

Programmatic advertising is both flexible and scalable. You don’t have to be a massive corporation to make paid ads work for you, but you can increase your budget as your business grows.

Being fully automated, your ads will have more access to a wider range of websites than they would if your CMO was picking and choosing. You can then reach an unimaginably diverse audience with your ads.

It’s also easier to see how your ads are performing. You’ll be able to see which websites your ads are on, what sort of audiences are seeing them, and what the ROI is for each ad placement. This makes it far easier to analyze and adjust ads to improve their performance.

All of this works to make your ad campaigns more efficient. You’re given all of the data that you need to run your ad campaigns manually. Programmatic advertising just gives you an efficient starting point to work from.
