Vevo, the top music video network in the world, and Publica by IAS, a top Connected TV (CTV) ad server owned by Integral Ad Science, announced a global partnership. This partnership enables Vevo to enhance their advertisers’ targeting abilities, improve the viewing experience of their streamed content by making it akin to a traditional TV show, and increase their revenue from CTV advertising by introducing a programmatic unified auction for the premium ad slots within their streamed ad breaks. This covers the ability to buy the first slot inside ad pods, frequency management, and competitive separation.
Characteristics implemented by Vevo
With features that mimic typical TV commercial breaks, advertisers can effectively target Vevo’s global music-loving audience.
Advanced Ad Serving: Vevo can provide advanced CTV ad breaks with the precise targeting options needed by advertisers. Furthermore, it can also provide the capacity to maximize each slot in a pod based on revenue per second.
Advanced Ad Pod Decisioning: This feature allows Vevo to own a pod by brand category and ensure an advertiser’s first pod placement. This aids in buy-side frequency management and competitive separation. Vevo can also guarantee that CTV inventory is served securely and targeted, giving advertisers the transparency and control they need. This enables Vevo to provide their engaged viewers with an improved viewing experience while optimizing revenue
Unified Bidding: This feature enables Vevo to extract the highest-yielding ad for each slot in each streaming ad pod. It does so by conducting a controlled, unified auction of all demand sources. In order to provide real-time transparency into each programmatic auction where the company’s inventory is cleared, Vevo is also utilizing the Publica ‘Live Logs’ feature. As a result, Vevo can now continuously improve yield and data strategies to prevent demand loss due to supply path optimization (SPO).
Based on GroupM’s mid-year forecast, CTV advertising is expected to grow to $25.9 billion in 2023. This is a rapid increase. As a result, the collaboration is timely to take advantage of this expanding trend and grab new business prospects. Vevo can guarantee that its CTV inventory is targeted and served in the safest manner possible. It does so by putting Publica CTV advertising decision-making technology to use. This will give Vevo’s advertisers the control and transparency they need. Advertisers can access Vevo inventory programmatically through several of the top supply-side platforms (SSPs) in the world.
