Ok. I’m Embarrassed to Ask, but What Is Programmatic?
Josh Aston (CMO & Co-Founder - Above The Fold)
About this talk
According to AdAge, only 26% of marketers say they know what programmatic is, and of those asked, most have very different ways of defining programmatic marketing. Meanwhile, programmatic ad spending is projecting to be more than 68% of the total global digital media ad spending and hit nearly $155 billion globally in 2021 (¾ of that in the U.S). While many marketers do not understand it, programmatic is experiencing a surge in interest as it is positioned well through the “cookie apocalypse.”
The Above The Fold team has 20+ years in the programmatic space and prides itself on transparency.
In this event, you will learn:
- The basics of programmatic
- The programmatic landscape
- Programmatic strategies that work in 2021
- Is programmatic right for your business?
- Q&A with Jessica Chase & Josh Aston of ATF
