the value of adserving?
is adserving adding value to your online media activity?
Many interactive media departments and full service digital agencies will recommend clients utilise a Third Party Advertising System (3PAS) to execute an online media campaign.
Usually agencies open the discussion mentioning companies and tools such as Doubleclick, Facilitate, Motif, Eyeblaster and, alongside comments on verification, monitoring, ad delivery, advanced tracking, suddenly clients are signing off on up to $80,000 for one campaign.
Has this ever happened to you?
what do 3PAS provide?
In broad terms, 3PAS allows clients to track their campaigns in close detail. For example, 3PAS can be used to track all online advertising display impressions and clicks. As a result, agencies can easily verify and evaluate campaign performance, adjust the booking (often called optimisation) and increase the overall results of the campaign. Without it, clients and agencies do not have an independent 3rd party to verify media delivery. Would you run a TV campaign without spot monitoring?
should all advertisers use a 3PAS?
Often, 3PAS is critical. A campaign purchase on a cost-per-action model simply cannot function without it. Rich media formats such as OTP's and streaming video cannot be delivered without the technology.
However, in smaller branding orientated campaigns or with organisations that do not fully utilise online marketing efforts, 3PAS may not be worth the investment.
3PAS usually covers a technology and head hours charge to an agency. If you are paying for 3PAS and do not have the capacity or want to implement advanced campaign learning, should you be using 3PAS? If you are happy to run online media campaigns with no verification of delivery, the additional cost may not be entirely necessary.
are you reaping the benefits of 3PAS?
How much should you pay for 3PAS? Does your agency fully utilise the learning's available from the software? Does your agency report on
reach? Message frequency? Best performing placements matching campaign objectives? Post Click and Post Impression results? What areas are your online campaign visitors interested in across your
microsite? Does the additional cost of adserving and resulting optimisation of the campaign actually return an investment? Are you getting the full picture on your online advertising campaign beyond clicks and impression
