From Cost Center to Revenue Center: How AdTech Drives Sales

Marketers have long viewed Advertising Technology as a cost center—as necessary tools required to conduct business, but ultimately not contributors to the company bottom line and, thus, little more than necessary evils. This perception of AdTech, however, is deeply flawed and can lead to lost revenue opportunities. At its core, AdTech is not a cost center but rather a revenue center. It’s ability to improve decision-making, and the sales that can result from those improved decisions, cannot be overstated. Here’s why…

The Future of the Bot and Why Marketers Need to Be Critical of their Own Performance Data

Bot induced losses in ad spend amount to $5.8 billion globally. Though this might seem like a monumental sum, the World Federation of Advertisers (WFA) claims that conflated click volumes will cost businesses as much as $50 billion by 2025. However, compare the $5.8 billion lost in 2018 to the $6.5 billion in 2017 and you might believe that things are improving. As advertising vigilantes try to stem the growth of ad fraud by dismantling bot networks and deploying programmatic networks with built-in fraud prevention…
