It is not a new technique, but technological advances such as Real-Time Bidding (RTB), Data Management Platforms (DMPs) and innovative look-a-like algorithms have transformed audience extension into an impressive revenue opportunity.

As increasing spend flows through programmatic channels, the private exchange concept is considered a boon to both buyers and sellers through enhanced trading controls and inventory transparency. In particular, it’s a convenient way for publishers to better monetize inventory headed to programmatic channels while meeting and exceeding the demands of their top advertisers.

With the swift and continuing evolution of ad operations, the challenges publishers face when evaluating their capabilities abound. Informed decisions on how and where to invest time, money, resources and manpower are often overshadowed by 'gut-feeling' decisions as publishers feel the pressure to maintain a competitive stride.

The 2013 edition of the AdMonsters Salary Survey is here! The survey explores over 30 data points on ad operations roles within publishers, agencies, networks and solutions companies from over 310 respondents around the world, and provides data on salaries by position, seniority, geographic area, number of reports, as well as historical trends and other key findings.

For publishers, mobile is an itch spreading over greater sections of skin, tingling more ferociously every second. Scratching doesn’t make it worse, but certainly fails to relieve the symptoms.
