Programmatic Advertising Networks

Updated: October 18, 2021

Programmatic advertising is advertising conducted using software; it increases its efficiency and generated revenues by automating the process of connecting publishers inventory with advertisers needs to reach a specific audience.

It includes both real-time bidding when advertisers bid for impressions in mobile or desktop publishers inventory and buying ad impressions in advance from specific publishers. Over time programmatic advertising is replacing all aspects where manual intervention was necessary.

Programmatic mobile advertising benefits

In the world of programmatic advertising, SSPs help to support mobile publishers and their inventories by selling their space through an ad exchange. DSPs, (Demand Side Platforms), on the other side, find the best ad inventory and the highest bidder wins that space – this could be on a website or inside a mobile app.

The key benefit of SSPs, other than giving mobile publishers more control over their inventory, is that they can achieve a high fill rate, so mobile ad space that could be used isn’t wasted. In theory, everyone wins in this setup, with advertisers also getting quality inventory for their campaigns.

Programmatic advertising benefits include:

  • Sells mobile ad impressions for the highest price possible
  • Connects to a considerable variety of different mobile advertisers
  • Mobile publishers can set their prices and have more control over their space

Below we’ve listed the best mobile programmatic networks so you can get up and running without fuss.
