Programmatic Marketing has been one of the most popular issues in ad optimization in 2014 up to now. With its smoother, faster and more efficient feature, it is a great advancement in the online advertising industry that is widely used today.

Publishers are gradually moving to utilize Programmatic selling on their ad inventories. With this technology, Publishers are able to sell their inventory without directly communicating with the buyer by using real-time channels and machine-driven methods. Programmatic selling has been proven to create significant value and revenue growth to publishers.

What are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Programmatic Selling?

The top three disadvantages cited across all publishers were:

  1. Commoditization of product (therefore resulting in lower CPMs);
  2. Publisher’s lack of expertise;
  3. Devaluing of direct relationships

When it came to the advantages of programmatic, most mentioned:

  1. Increased overall revenue;
  2. Greater access to quality advertisers;
  3. Cost savings

Smaller publishers, those earning under $1 million in revenue per month, has been said to have fears over programmatic and thus don’t quite understand it. For that reason, they don’t commit and devote more time, effort and resources for programmatic selling.
