Kubient | October 28, 2020
Kubient, the cloud advertising marketplace that enables advertisers and publishers to reach, monetize and connect their audiences efficiently and effectively, today unveiled the modernized digital advertising infrastructure and operations for historic news agency, The Associated Press ("AP"). Kubient worked with The AP to evaluate and streamline its internal ad operations and techstack and uplevel its data analysis - ultimately providing the publication with a new way to capture and monetize its audiences by delivering relevant content, integrations and ads.
Over a two week audit period evaluating the existing infrastructure and removing inessential vendors, Kubient reduced 50% of the SSPs that had access to The AP's tech stack. Within three weeks of implementing Kubient's Audience Cloud technology, The AP increased its prebid revenue by 80% and its monthly video revenue increased by 500%.
"The AP trusted us with its robust history and allowed us to create a new systematically and economically efficient ad model to support its work for years to come," said Peter Bordes, CEO of Kubient. "It was our job to strategically dismantle and rebuild the ad stack from the ground up in order to optimize their ad ecosystem for their new goals. In this process we identified and removed inefficient middlemen that were slowing down The AP's digital advertising operations and putting a strain on its budget."
Kubient was able to unlock the value of The AP's audiences by re-architecting their ad stack infrastructure and supply path, creating an efficient market and "right pricing" the value of their audience. The AP leveraged this information to target prospects for monetized opportunities and launched a new monthly newsletter that had over a third of recipients open and engage with the content.
"As one of the most trusted news agencies, we have a wealth of knowledge and information. We partnered with Kubient to gain a better understanding of the data behind our content," said Julie Tucker, Vice President of Global Marketing at The Associated Press. "Kubient was able to unlock the patterns of our readers' engagement so we can now make the most informed decisions and investments around our customer acquisition strategy."

Kubient's next generation cloud-based infrastructure enables efficient marketplace liquidity for buyers and sellers of digital advertising.

Marketron | October 13, 2020
Marketron, the leading provider of enterprise revenue management and digital software solutions, today introduced a robust new social media feature for Pitch, one of the company’s digital advertising platforms. Pitch offers a powerful set of tools and resources for broadcast sales teams to create, execute and manage digital campaigns that maximize their clients’ online advertising reach. Now, Pitch makes it easy and seamless to build proposals integrating Facebook, Instagram and Facebook Messenger ads into the overall blend of third-party digital tactics based on advertisers’ campaign objectives. By 2023, social media users in the U.S. are expected to top 250 million. Roughly two-thirds of U.S. adults report that they are Facebook users, and a large majority of Instagram users say they have made purchases as a result of social media advertising. “Clearly, social media offers tremendous opportunities for our radio customers and their advertisers to reach engaged and highly targeted audiences — but working directly with social platforms to purchase ads can be complicated, time-consuming and counterproductive,” said Jimshade Chaudhari, Senior Vice President of Product at Marketron. “Adding social to the third-party digital tactics in Pitch is the latest example of how we are constantly evolving our products based on customers’ needs. By removing these complexities, it is easier than ever for radio stations to create, deliver and manage highly integrated and customized digital ad campaigns.” With the new Pitch social tactic, sales teams are able to include Facebook, Instagram and Facebook Messenger ads in a fully integrated campaign alongside other digital elements such as display and video ads, geofencing, connected TV/OTT and search engine marketing.
