Takeaways from the RTB OMMA Conference

L2TMedia’s PPC and Display Media Director Jeff Kaufman attended the recent OMMA RTB conference which was solely focused on real-time bidded display. Below are some of the takeaways he shared:

Advanced Targeting Options on the Google Display Network

The Google Display Network (GDN) has been around for some time now, allowing advertisers to run campaigns that include both text and image ads across their expansive network. Over the years, Google has added new targeting capabilities to stay in line with or even ahead of the DSPs they compete with. While their remarketing tool started out clunky and was a hassle to implement, Google has since employed major improvements that have made remarketing on the GDN simple and scalable to the needs of most advertisers. With the success of this product, Google is quietly rolling out and testing a few other targeting methods, which L2TMedia is now testing across a number of clients.

Spring Cleaning with Container Tags

In true spring cleaning fashion, the team here at L2TMedia is always looking for new ways to tidy our processes in order to ensure we are being as efficient as possible. One of the never-ending hurtles we find ourselves jumping quite often involves our tag management process. Our Display efforts require anywhere from three to nine different tracking tags per website, which can prove to become pretty cluttered –not to mention confusing – at any given moment. Since we do not offer website development as a product, we have enjoyed very little direct control over how tags are implemented.

Impact of Enhanced Campaigns on Display Media

Information has been swirling – some great, some not so great – about all the impending changes to Google AdWords, and how Enhanced Campaigns are going to revolutionize paid search advertising. The public is still skeptical, and many are downright upset about how Google is taking the control out of the hands of the most experienced AdWords professionals in order to focus on making more money from the smaller players. All this has yet to play out and we will have to wait and see where it takes us, but what has hardly been mentioned thus far is how Enhanced Campaigns will impact display advertising via the Google Display Network.

The Implications of Cross-Device Shopping on Your Display Strategy

Using only one device in the purchasing cycle is a thing of the past. Instead, consumers are turning to whichever device is most convenient at the moment, considering time, location, Wi-Fi accessibility, etc. Like many others, I can attest to this through my own personal experience. As a consumer, I am using my desktop while at work, scrolling through my mobile during lunch, and surfing the web on my tablet while I relax at home – all the while moving seamlessly across all devices. So why shouldn’t advertising reflect that behavior?

Display Targeting Tactics Explained

The world of display advertising can be a confusing place, as there are a number of ways to buy ads and an even greater number of ways in which you can target them. The days of buying ads to run on specific sites, or even placements within sites, are long gone with today’s shift toward focusing on audience buying. This has been proven to be a much more effective and cost-efficient way for advertisers to achieve their display advertising goals.

Finding the Value of Your Display Campaign

Specializing in the automotive vertical does prove to have some hurdles that L2TMedia jumps every now and again especially within the Display department.

Display Digs Deep

One of the most charming attributes of Display Advertising is how granular you can get when optimizing a campaign.  Imagine being able to control all variables that play into a buyers’ decision down to the T, where you can almost guide the conversion!

Say Goodbye to Static

The phenomenon of rich media has been sweeping across the web now more than ever. Nonetheless, it should not be overlooked. A recent study conducted by MediaMind reveals the importance of acting upon this trend. 

Keeping it Fresh: How Creative Rotation Impacts Performance

One of the most appealing facets of display advertising for me is the creative component. We’ve seen advertisers do incredible things in very small spaces online to catch a potential customer’s eye. This also means that the consumer’s expectations are rising as well.

Ad Networks vs. Ad Exchanges: It’s all the same, right?

The common theme here is that both entities represent a group of websites and/or publishers. Because these groups of sites are easily accessible from one point of origin, scaling advertising campaigns for additional impression volume is much easier. Everyone wins right? Well, not exactly.

Geographic Targeting for Local Display Advertising

Whether you aspire to run an international sales effort or just want to reach a specific neighborhood in your town, L2TMedia has technology available to suit any advertiser’s specific geographic targeting needs.

What You Should Know about Real-Time Bidding

Real-Time Bidding for online display advertising is the process of buying ad inventory on-demand. This process is completed by companies like L2T Media, or departments commonly referred to as “Trading Desks.”
