Mobile Real-Time Bidding (RTB) will foster enhanced audience targeting and personalised ads through 3rd party audience data
Mobile being the most personal medium, gives advertisers the ability to target their ads with a much higher degree of accuracy. Aiding them in this is the explosive growth of Mobile Real-Time Bidding (RTB). With RTB, various targeting parameters about users can be utilized to serve relevant ads based on their advertiser ID. Ad impressions that are enriched by this third-party data through RTB, enable advertisers to bid intelligently on mobile inventory on an impression-by-impression basis, cost effectively and efficiently. With RTB, ad space across various audience segments is also available to marketers for targeting specific user groups providing greater transparency. Exchanges that aggregate this user data serve more relevant ads and hence offer best monetization for publishers. Also, mobile display ad spends are set to grow seven times faster than online advertising models resulting in an overall increase of over 70% in mobile RTB spending. As advertisers, developers, publishers & telcos start collaborating to leverage the audience buying platform, mobile RTB will continue to revolutionize mobile advertising.
