Data-Assists for Advertisers are Fair-Trade for Users
Application of real-time data to buy some component of programmatic media is useful compared to most platforms that execute 100% of media buys in retrospect. The cookie is widely used after the 'horse has bolted', in retrospect, which explains why many ads keep appearing well after a purchase or interaction.
AdFreeway introduced data-assists which are an instance of user provided, prospective data obtained during a programmatic advertising campaign that is associated with an advertisers desired outcome for their ad impression. These data-assists are reported as an event of the impression which is reported to advertisers and the user, with payment.
It works because votes discover cohort identifiers that cluster with the voter. The discovered identifiers are rarely in the advertisers audience and the voted ad unit is rapidly delivered on the first available brand-safe impression. This just-in-time approach discovers new customers, ensures freshness and a responsiveness that gives an edge to any programmatic campaign.
