What is programmatic?

An introduction on the definition of programmatic and an explanation on where it all started.

The programmatic process

We’ll explore the four key pillars of programmatic delivery for an advertiser – data, creative, activation and measurement.

How a programmatic ad gets served

A step-by-step guide to how an ad gets served programmatically.

Coffee break

Data collection & segmentation

We will cover:

  • 1st, 2nd and 3rd party data types and how data is collected– with a particular focus on GDPR

  • How these data types are brought together to create audiences

  • An exercise where you will present back data sources that could be used for a live brief

Creative personalisation

Based on the previous session, how can technology personalise creative? This will involve an interactive exercise to design a creative that brings in information from a product feed.

Lunch break

Activating programmatic campaigns

We will look at how programmatic campaigns can be activated in a live DSP demo, including a team effort to set up a campaign in the DSP.

Coffee break

Measurement Matters

An introduction to the different metrics a buyer might use for different campaign types.
