Prep for Elevated Q4 Spend

August 15, 2022

Temperatures are heating up and soon ad spend will be too.  Q4 is right around the corner and it’s time to get your site primed to drive revenue during this time of peak spending and activity.  Here are a few tips from the Adapex Client Success team to help you optimize your site and drive revenue.

Monetize Every Channel

In Q4 all inventory is valuable: 

  • Display & Mobile Web
  • Video
    • According to IAB, digital video spend is expected to increase +26% in ‘22, and Q4 is, by far, the hottest quarter for video ad spend. Maximize your video ad opportunities!
  • In App
  • CTV
    • CTV ad spend is projected to more than double (+118%) (IAB)
    • Newsletters

The best way to drive revenue on any channel is with header bidding.  A header bidding solution increases competition for your inventory and ensures you get the highest possible CPM.  CTV and In-App pose unique challenges here, so it’s important that your header bidding tech for these channels was built for these nuances.  (Did you know that Adapex has a true header bidding solution for both CTV and In-App?)

All About the Tech

In 2022, maximizing revenue comes down to your tech. You need a comprehensive, sophisticated, best-in-class solution.

  • Header Bidding
  • Analytics
  • Identity Connector

We talked about header bidding above.  Your analytics dashboard and on-page console give you the tools you need for ongoing optimizations, in real-time.

And even with Google’s delay in ending the third-party cookie, it’s essential to have a data strategy in place. There are multiple viable identity solutions out there.  Adapex’s Magnify™, provides an automatic connection to the leading solutions.  Our publishers are attracting premium campaigns and higher CPMs through Magnify™.

Content is King

  • Make sure you are providing a good experience for your user by improving your core web vitals
  • Focus on the product, media not the ad slot.
    • Audiences aren’t people who navigate the web in seach of ads to click on. It is the product (news, movies, games, etc.) that attracts and retains them, creating the quality engagement advertisers seek. (Alessandro De Zanche)

Direct Deals

  • Pursue direct deals with your top advertisers 
  • Direct deals can be a successful way for advertisers to realize their performance and direct response campaign ROIs
