Programmatic Advertising & Geofencing

Target people, not pages.

While the Google Display Network uses primarily contextual targeting for its ad placements, programmatic allows you to place ads with much better behavioral or demographic targeting. Basically, instead of focusing on the site where you want to place your ad, you focus on the target audience you want to hit, no matter what sites or apps they choose to go to. This is usually a more effective version of targeting, but you tend to pay more per impression as well.
