Publishers are constantly looking for better ways to manage their supply and extract maximum dollars from their inventory. As media consumption fragments and the wave of social media continues to rise, marketers are feeling increasingly confused about how best to spend their media dollars. Simplifying digital is absolutely paramount if we want our industry to thrive.
What are three steps publishers can take that will simplify the process for marketers, improve performance, and drive profits?
The great range of media devices and opportunities now available to marketers and consumers has brought the digital industry to a critical crossroads. Publishers need to be flexible while also staying focused on delivering a superior experience to consumers. Their power lies in knowing the value of the inventory and in utilizing a platform that allows for dynamic allocation of inventory across all channels in order to maximize that value. There is still tremendous opportunity for publishers to grow their businesses. All it takes is a plan, a partner, and the guts to go for it. What do you think?
