So what is programmatic advertising anyway? According to Marketingland.com, programmatic advertising helps automate the decision-making process of media buying by targeting specific audiences and demographics.
In a nutshell, your vendor is going to target your ideal customer with display ads across multiple websites. The vendor will tell you it's about the target customer and not the specific website they are on. This mindset can be problematic for advertisers for a couple of reasons. First, some type of ROI may need to be calculated and if your do not use the Google URL builder (link) to tag the campaign, good luck being able to track it in analytics. Second, it's possible you'll never see the ad and therefore it may be difficult to gauge your actual presence. In the end, your campaign report with CTR is not how you can tell if the campaign was successful. Thus, it's important to tag all programmatic campaigns and track their success in analytics.
