The New Premium: Challenges & Opportunities in Selling Audience and Performance

How do publishers get premium value from their audience, not just their content? How do publishers set up operations to win a bigger slice of performance budgets? Ben will be discussing the opportunity for "indirect premium" impressions, finding pockets of high-value audiences hidden in remnant inventory, and structuring operations to execute large, direct-sold deals via exchange platforms.
