Challenges

Before plugging into Smart’s full stack platform, Contrepoints.org used a traditional monetization approach with a chain of partners. Looking for a way to boost revenue, the publisher chose Smart’s full stack platform to help them better monetize their inventory. In January 2017, Contrepoints.org activated Holistic Yield and Smart RTB+.

Solutions

+ Holistic Approach: Smart’s “ad server + RTB” solution allowed Contrepoints.org 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 Contrepoints.org 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.

Results

In 2 months:
+ Smart became the #1 revenue source

In 3 months:
+ 2x total revenue
+ eCPM per page viewed boosted to over 3€
+ Smart RTB+ eCPMs topped those of other platforms, meaning it sold more inventory at a higher price
+ Smart outearned Criteo, Teads, and The Moneytizer
+ Smart represented +40% of total programmatic monetization
