As one of the most engaging channels in programmatic advertising, native is loved by advertisers because it allows brands to fit into, rather than disrupt, the audience experience. Offering precise, audience-specific targeting in a contextual format, native advertising has proven to deliver higher levels of engagement, brand lift, and viewability by blending into the content format of the pages on which they appear.

2020 has been one for the record books, and 2021 is likely to bring more challenges to an ever-evolving industry. As marketers look to deal with the fallout from a cookie-less future, a global recession, and the ongoing COVID pandemic, adaptability and agility will remain more important than ever.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, this National Nonprofit day is especially meaningful for the team at AUDIENCEX.

Below is a little bit more about some of the non-profits we’ve been honored to work with on a pro- bono basis.
Demand side platforms, or DSPs, are an important part of programmatic advertising. This technology allows advertisers and agencies to buy ads across multiple ad exchanges in multiple sources through one interface. However, each DSP has its own strengths, inventory sources, and characteristics. How do you know which DSP is right for your campaign?
Native advertising is an effective way for your brand to capture attention and build relevance. By definition, native advertising refers to content in an online publication that appears similar to the publication’s main content, but is paid for by an advertiser. The goal is ultimately to promote the advertiser’s products or services, without blatantly showing a banner advertisement for that product or service. The key to success is to fit your content seamlessly in the environment it appears in, without disrupting the user experience, and instead, adding value to it.
Every consumer journey is different, and the path to making a purchase is not always the same. And this has never been more true than 2020, with the global COVID-19 pandemic changing not only the way we consume media and communicate, but the way we shop as well. As more and more consumers lean into online shopping, there are going to be even more potential customers online who may not already be familiar with your brand. In order to connect with this broad group of consumers, both prospecting and retargeting are critical tactics to a successful digital marketing campaign.
Digital advertising is one of the most dynamic fields to follow. A steady stream of new technological developments is constantly transforming the way companies create and deploy online ads, offering cutting-edge ways to ensure your advertising reaches your audience. One such tool is programmatic advertising.
Programmatic advertising takes place in the blink of an eye, in the time it takes for a web page to load, making it one of the least understood forms of marketing. We’ll cover everything you need to know, including the benefits of programmatic advertising, the options available, how it works and much more.
With the proliferation of digital audio, podcasts, and streaming radio, the way we listen to content is ever-changing. Today, digital audio reaches a wealth of diverse and highly engaged audiences. Although people still listen to traditional AM/FM radio, content such as podcasts, streaming music, and digital radio are growing rapidly. By 2021, the average US adult will spend 86.88 minutes a day with digital audio, according to eMarketer.
