+ Holistic Approach: Smart’s “ad server + RTB” solution allowed to optimize yield and sell ad space at more elevated eCPMs. Smart RTB+ was activated with first look on all formats, placing it at the top of the waterfall. RTB+ could challenge direct sales, but the system delivered the campaign that paid the most,
while making sure still honored previous direct campaign commitments.
+ Increased Demand: Smart helped Contrepoints connect with new high-quality DSP partners, creating additional demand opportunities.
+Complementary SSP: Smart RTB+ acted
as a complement to the publisher’s current monetization strategy. This ensured that revenues were strictly additional and not hijacked from existing partners.
