PUBM and Semasio Partnership – Worth it?
On 20th October 2021, PUBM announced the expansion of a partnership with Semasio that would allow media buyers to boost audience addressability at the user and page level. For speedy, precise targeting, Semasio’s audience and contextual segments may now be triggered directly in PubMatic’s sell-side platform (SSP).
OMD Netherlands, OMG Germany, and PubMatic examined the success of mobile web and in-app ads using Semasio segments activated in PubMatic’s SSP vs activation in a demand-side platform (DSP) to see if activating data segments in the SSP would result in increased reach. When Semasio segments were utilized in the SSP instead of the DSP, the findings for OMD Netherlands revealed a 205 percent increase in reach. Additionally, by activating the segments via PubMatic, OMD Netherlands noticed a 16 percent increase in viewability and a 21 percent increase in click-through rate (CTR).
So, what’s next?
Media buyers, tech platforms, and data suppliers respect the capability of such advanced contextual targeting techniques because they give a springboard for improved addressability in a cookie-free environment. Moreover, Semasio’s new methodology will provide media buyers the flexibility and accuracy they need to conduct extremely effective campaigns in cookie-less environments, and it will be a fantastic fit for PubMatic’s clients. Last but not least, data will continue to play an important part in the future of addressability initiatives, assisting advertisers in achieving their campaign objectives.
