A Programmatic Self-Assessment:

Ask yourself the following:

  • Are you currently monetizing all of your inventory?
  • Do you spend a minimum of 2 hours a week managing exchanges?
  • Are you creating & updating rules, block lists and floors?
  • Are you using automation as a part of your overall sales strategy?
  • Are you A/B testing multiple exchange platforms?
  • Are you leveraging audience data?

If you answered “no” to one or more of these questions, you are leaving money on the table.

We were dealing with over 30 exchanges for our remnant inventory, and it was providing a diminishing return on our investment. By working with Operative as our exchange management partner, we increased our eCPMs by 56% in only one month.
