Personalized Marketing Keeps Getting Easier

AppNexus, LiveRamp, and MediaMath Launch Consortium for People-Based Programmatic Ad Buying

PR Newswire

So much news, so little space. I’ll combine a few items. Adtech vendors AppNexus, MediaMath, LiveRamp, and others have formed a consortium to identify viewers available for programmatic advertising. They’ll create an encrypted personal identifier and tie it to a shared cookie. That’s interesting in itself, and even more interesting is that they pitch it as a way to get precision comparable to ads on Google and Facebook, which have recently become everyone’s favorite punching bags. Still sticking with advertising: a survey from Tremor Video found that GenZ consumers (age 14-21) are much more receptive to TV advertising than older consumers; in fact, 40% have shared a TV ad, compared with just 19% of GenX (ages 38-50). Baby boomers are apparently too old to consider.  A survey of media buyers from Turn found another generation gap: just 28% of media buyers under 30 consider viewability when buying video inventory, compared with 60% of buyers over 30, and 76% of those under 30 consider fraud a “less than crucial concern”.
