AdQuick.com Launches Programmatic Software to Take the Risk and Uncertainty Out of Out-of-Home Advertising
AdQuick.com, the Out-of-Home (OOH) AdTech company, today announced its new programmatic demand-side platform (DSP) for Digital OOH (DOOH). AdQuick's DSP offers unparalleled access to digital screens with 48-hour attribution reporting, multiple SSP integrations, and geospatial audiences targeting. Built from the ground up for digital marketers, they can now adapt to campaigns in real time, rather than planning campaigns months in advance with a limited set of inventory. "With states and counties opening and adapting to COVID-19, creating dynamic advertising micro or large scale campaigns that can react to our performance data will give markets an edge in an unprecedented economy," said Matt O'Connor, CEO of AdQuick.com. "Brands previously looked to the top five markets for their primary focus, but now the shift in spend will go to other regions around the country that are opening up at a faster pace. We've created a software that runs like Google Adwords for Out-of-Home and that is going to usher in an entire new generation of marketers into the channel." According to a report produced by MAGNA Intelligence, the market research unit of IPG Mediabrands, DOOH sales have been growing by 16% per year in the last five years and investment from media owners in digital screens has skyrocketed in the last few years. True to AdQuick.com's mission to make OOH easy and accessible to marketers of all budgets, users can self-execute a hyper-targeted campaign in 10 minutes, pending a publisher approval time that can be granted in less than two hours. This can be done by simply selecting a target audience, points of interest, desired venues, screen types and publishers — all through a UX that will seem familiar to any marketer. AdQuick.com's DSP plugs into multiple SSP platforms such as Broadsign Reach and Vistar Media. Marketers can execute campaigns across 30 different types of digital screen inventory ranging from highway billboards to quick service restaurants to doctor's offices. Users can access more than 300,000 digital screens at launch, with over 500,000 available by the end of 2020.

Have you ever hosted banner ads on your website or used web banners to promote your business, product or service online? If you have, it is very likely that you have wondered if digital advertising couldn’t be cheaper, more transparent and more effective? Over the past years the market has been monopolised, which resulted in high and hidden fees, lack of transparency and censorship. What’s even worse is that these are only some of the issues that both the advertisers and the publishers are struggling with. Adshares is here to change the status quo. Our ecosystem is the answer to negative trends in programmatic advertising, and the AdServer Release Candidate is another important step in our quest to fix what is wrong in this market. Adshares is decentralizing digital ads Adshares is the first 100% decentralized marketplace for programmable advertising, also being one of the most advanced blockchain-based projects in the advertising market. The network uses a unique tailor-made blockchain developed by the Founders.

Combined with some unique features, Adshares offers a very interesting set of advantages over many mainstream and crypto ad networks.

The publisher is the one who decides what content can be displayed on their website Availability for small advertisers — no minimum budget required to join the network Only email is required to start advertising (instant approval ad network) One of the best pop ads network Instant payouts for advertisers (every hour) and no minimum payout Beyond conventional ad networks, adshares is now extending the network's capabilities to promotional campaign services through social media (e.g. twitter), press releases with publishers across the network and other media. Supporting the creators, artists, writers and influencers who will also be able to join the ecosystem and offer their services can make a huge impact later this year. The project has a lot on the roadmap with a 3-year lookahead plus many other implementations that are made ad hoc based on the current waves. The team is also working on connecting the advertising market with NFTs which could really make a blast. As with many decentralised web3 solutions Adshares wants to give power to the people. Meaning that all the participants of the ecosystem are able to own their share of the Ad Network, just by holding shares in a native token used for settlements, which is the $ADS. Adshares oversees the blockchain ecosystem, the operators oversee their ad networks, the publishers monetize traffic and the advertisers reach new customers. ADS connects them. Being open source from the beginning, Adshares count on a much greater adoption as well as the interest of developers from around the world to expand this ecosystem together.

Web3 revolution is already taking place, and no one ever approached the decentralization of the advertising sector like this project.

RTB is old-fashioned, web3 blockchain solutions are the future. There’s no need to wait, because with Adshares web3 protocol the future is today. Join the revolution! We encourage Advertisers, Publishers, Creators, Artists, Writers and Influencers from all over the world to help us recreate reality in a decentralized and transparent manner.

Measured Facebook Solution Reveals Media Incrementality While Platform Attribution Is Hindered by Apple

As advertising platforms grapple with the measurement fallout of increasing restrictions on data and tracking, Measured has launched the industry’s first end-to-end incrementality measurement and reporting solution for Facebook in a post-iOS 14.5 world. Facebook recently indicated that the platform’s measurement and reporting systems are suffering accuracy issues related to updates in recent versions of Apple’s iOS. Facebook believes that “real world conversions, like sales and app installs, are higher than what is being reported for many advertisers.” Experiments from Measured provide DTC brands like Birdies, Fabletics, Lulus, and Stance with reliable ongoing insights into Facebook incrementality at channel, campaign and ad set levels. By measuring the true incremental contribution of Facebook media, anchored on source-of-truth transaction data provided by the brand, marketers can make informed decisions about budget allocation - even amid rising concerns about the reliability of platform self-reporting. “Privacy-driven changes across the industry are causing widespread reporting headaches for platforms and forcing brands to adapt how they track and measure, We built Measured in anticipation of this moment. We continuously refine our experiment designs and adapt to inevitable changes by platforms to ensure brands can always trust insights they get from us.” said Madan Bharadwaj, CTO and cofounder of Measured. Apple’s tracking policies pressured Facebook to make multi-faceted changes to attribution capabilities it offers advertisers, including a significant scale-back in conversion lift-testing and the elimination of 28-day click-through and view-through attribution windows. The decrease in trackable data has caused a notable drop in attribution reporting from the platform and the shorter look-back periods make it exponentially more difficult to run statistically significant split-audience test and control experiments. In the wake of these iOS-related implications, Measured developed a new suite of experiment designs and actionable reporting tools that identify the causality between Facebook investments and actual business transactions reported by the brand, empowering marketers to make confident decisions about advertising on the platform. Audience split experiments – Measured’s proprietary methodology utilizes the Facebook audience split API to divide target audiences into test and control cohorts and apply systematic lift studies to get program-level and granular ad set-level incrementality measurements. Geo-matched market experiments – Using advanced matched-market data science, Measured identifies statistically significant sibling markets (geos), at the state, DMA or zip code level, that are similar but cheaper to test in than larger markets. Because geo experiments are based on source-of-truth transaction data from the business (e.g. ecommerce platform) and run completely independent of platform reporting, geo-testing is the only system of measurement that isn’t affected by platform and policy changes. Scale testing experiments – To test for scale, Measured splits target audiences into three cohorts – test, control, and scale. The ad sets used for the test group are cloned and served to the scale group, but at 2x-3x-4x the spend, to measure the point of audience saturation. “Although Hammitt only started with Measured less than a year ago, their scientific method is just what is needed to scale profitably - in spite of privacy changes, which I support,” said Tony Drockton, Founder of Hammitt, an emerging leader in the luxury handbag market. “Great brands will prosper in these times with a clear vision, great partners like Measured, and by approaching digital media as a permission-based win-win between their customers and the brands they love.” About Measured Measured helps DTC brands grow by revealing media’s incremental contribution to business outcomes and providing source-of-truth reporting for media investment decisions. The Measured Intelligence Suite is intuitive, enterprise-grade software that delivers automated incrementality experiments for every marketing channel. Measured experiments are powered by a marketing data warehouse that was built for analytics, providing a secure place to ingest, harmonize, and utilize marketing data from across the business.
