What is ad technology (ad tech)?
Ad tech is a system for improving the efficiency of advertisement distribution. It is a coined word of ad = advertisement + tech = technology, and refers to all highly systemized advertisement distribution .
A long time ago, you had to submit and post your ad creatives (banners and texts) directly on your ad media. However, with the development of ad tech, it is now possible to automatically display ads that suit the user on multiple media, and the media is also more effective at a lower cost than before. There are many types of ad tech, and few marketers understand everything except those who are familiar with advertising.
Background of the appearance of ad tech
Internet advertisements (banner text) displayed on web pages are generally called “pure advertisements”. For example, we purchased the frame “Posted from March 2nd to March 8th” by the deadline (generally the previous month), prepared the advertisement by the deadline, and submitted the advertisement, so it was not possible to post it suddenly . Advertisers missed many opportunities, and the media side had a lot of inventory at different times to make up for it with “in-house advertising.” “Ad technology” has solved that problem. By utilizing the RTB (Real Time Bidding) method, it is now possible to instantly advertise, and it is now possible to advertise optimally to the “people” who are browsing instead of the “advertisement space”.
