Why Automated Ad Buying And Real-Time Bidding Is Surging


Programmatic advertising is the automation of online ad-buying, and it's reshaping the digital media landscape.

These include brand worries over whether ads will appear alongside inappropriate content, internal resistance at ad agencies, and lack of transparency over methods and results.
