"Sellers are learning how best to optimize their online ad sales by designating a percentage of their ad inventory for rate card buys and assigning a portion of inventory to online marketplaces like ours," said David Wamsley, Adauction.com president and CEO. "Publishers also appreciate our flexibility in serving as a complementary ad sales channel and not requiring exclusive agreements."
"We see value in Adauction.com's channel for Web publishers because it gives us the flexibility to offer additional inventory at a moment's notice," said Christopher Alden, president, chief operating officer and editorial director for Red Herring magazine and Red Herring Online.

And because we maintain complete control over the amount of inventory sold through Adauction.com each month, there are no sales channel conflicts."
