The field of digital advertising is constantly changing as new technologies are introduced. With these new technologies, companies alter the ways they deploy digital ads to reach their audiences more effectively. When it comes to digital advertising, programmatic advertising and real-time bidding (RTB) are at the forefront of the discussion.

Marketers can use both programmatic advertising and RTB to efficiently and effectively target ads to their specific audience.

In the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic, television content is being consumed more now than ever before. From streaming YouTube workouts to binge-watching new shows on Hulu, or staying glued to the news—home-bound consumers can now access more video content than ever before, and at any time of day.
