Why Advertising Through Real-Time Bidding Needs a New Pricing Model

The focus is on value in this new approach to media buying

For decades, CPM pricing controlled how all advertising was bought and sold and how different media properties were compared. Today’s real-time advertising is a significant opportunity, which can help advertisers reach more targeted viewers, gain efficiency, and improve ROI.  Real-time bidding (RTB) presents an opportunity for media buyers to “take it to the next level” for their clients. Buyers can evolve from haggling over costs to working collaboratively with media partners to find the strategic value and ROI they are both committed to deliver.

This white paper describes how RTB has changed the world of online advertising, and how media buying must evolve to take advantage of the opportunities presented by this revolution.
