How to Attract New Advertisers: Create Targeted Publisher Profiles

You can never sell anything if you can’t attract your target market with the service or product that is meaningful to them.

So you may ask: How can I attract advertisers and buyers if I’m offering space on my website? How can I make these advertisers notice me and make them run their ads on my site?

If you are an Ad Exchange Publisher, Google can give you a solution to that and their answer is to create a publisher profile.

What is this Publisher Profile and how does it work?

A Publisher Profile is basically like a normal Facebook account or any social media account. You can put your:

  • site’s logo
  • description of your brand
  • your contact information where advertisers can contact you for any deals
  • your AdExchange statistics; and
  • audience information

You can create more than one profile for all your sites – known as site-specific profiles. The first profile that you will create will be your Parent Profile, it can’t be deleted but you can edit it anytime. It will also be your default profile if there are no offers/deals being associated with your other profiles.

Creating a publisher profile can help increase the visibility of your site to your advertisers and buyers. This strategy can make the advertisers see and understand how unique your inventory is to encourage them to do business with you. Your profiles will be visible to any advertiser and buyer in the AdExchange marketplace.

What are the steps in creating a Publisher Profile?

  1. Log in to your AdExchange interface and click the gear setting on the top right corner of the page.
  2. On the drop-down menu, choose “Publisher Profiles
