One-third of ad spend goes to intermediaries

It is estimated that US advertisers spend $12 billion per year on the fees that make programmatic display transactions possible. This equates to roughly 33% of the average advertising budget. These fees include payments to demand-side platforms (DSPs), supply-side platforms (SSPs), and other technology and service partners.

You struggle to find a transparent and fairly priced ad platform

While placing a media buy may seem like a straight-forward process, getting real transparency from a digital advertising platform can feel impossible. The reality is that most marketers are not aware of the true costs of advertising with a given platform. Ask yourself, “how much money is my buy-side platform and all of its third-party partners really taking from me and the publisher when facilitating an ad buy?”


You may think that you’re getting a good deal even when you’re being misled

DSPs set the rules for the auction, which means they have the authority to set or outbid the final clearing price. That’s a lot of discretionary power. This trade-off impacts more than just the final price you pay, meaning that if you pick the wrong buy-side platform, you can easily overpay for your digital campaigns by tens of thousands of dollars.
