Cost Saving Opportunities in Online Advertising

Adoption of various cost optimization levers allows buyers of online advertising services to not only realize direct cost savings but also enhance category management and value benefits (such as a reduction in procurement complexities).

Technavio procurement experts have segmented the cost saving opportunities in the online advertising market into the following value-enhancement opportunities:

  • Adoption of technology
  • Supplier Competition
  • Adoption of negotiation strategies
  • Optimization of procurement practices
  • Bundling of services

Adoption of technology saving aspects

Header bidding, also known as pre-bidding or advance bidding, is a programmatic technique where publishers offer multiple ad exchanges by providing bidding for several demand sources.

Real-time bidding refers to the bidding of an advertising inventory that is bought or sold based on per impression through programmatic auction. Advertisers bid on an impression, and if the bid is won, the ad is posted on the publisher's website.

Optimization of procurement practices saving aspects

Buyers opt for opportunities to de-bundle adaptation/localization of content creation. Within online advertising procurement, a global network agency handles the advertising strategy creation, and the adoption and localization part is outsourced to an independent local agency.

Buyers must procure services from providers that create and strategize content through methods such as content remarketing and cookie-based advertising. This helps in reducing cost and improves the reach of advertisements by ensuring that it influences the target audience.

Bundling of services saving aspects

Buyers need to engage with service providers that use tools such as Google Analytics, Webtrends, Adobe Analytics, and AppsFlyer to measure the effectiveness of the campaign. These tools enable buyers to measure ROI effectively when compared with traditional media. They also help them to understand the success of a campaign and optimize campaign performance.
