AOL UK Makes All Reserved Inventory Available Programmatically

Stocks in this article: AOL

AOL announces today that it is putting 100% of its reserved inventory from all its owned and operated sites into AOL’s proprietary Demand Side Platform (DSP). Automating the sale of reserved inventory, that is currently done manually, will free up a vast amount of time that is lost in the standard IO process, in addition to driving efficiencies and effectiveness with digital campaigns. A number of agencies and advertisers are partners of AOL’s DSP, including eBay, Amnet, Cadreon and Vivaki, and they will now have access to AOL’s complete reserved inventory.

Advertisers can now buy all reserved inventory on AOL UK’s owned and operated sites including AOL, The Huffington Post, Engadget, TechCrunch, Parentdish and MyDaily, in an automated way on a self-serve basis. Four of AOL’s existing premium formats including the award-winning multi-screen Project Devil/IAB Portrait, Billboard and Monster MPU will be available exclusively through AOL’s DSP, with more set to come. Advertisers can also scale their brand message beyond AOL’s owned and operated sites, utilising a wide range of premium formats through AOL’s network of premium third party publishers.

Noel Penzer, Managing Director, AOL UK said: “Making all of our inventory and premium formats available through our DSP is a major milestone for AOL UK and the industry as a whole. It re-affirms our investment in and commitment to automation and our belief that programmatic will be the main driver of digital advertising budgets going forward. We believe all of our inventory can be bought in an automated fashion, giving agencies and advertisers more time to spend on bigger creative integrations, sponsorships and tailored solutions.”

Danny Hopwood, Head of Platform EMEA, VivaKi said: “It’s refreshing to see a premium publisher like AOL embrace programmatic across all aspects of its business. AOL’s commitment and drive is further confirmation of the immense growth and adoption of programmatic, which is now present across every product and every inventory source AOL offers to the industry. Over the past two years, the company has gone from an ad network proposition to a fully formed technology platform. This has helped transform the relationship between VivaKi and AOL from that of traditional agency and publisher to one of true collaboration and a shared consensus on how we can work together in a programmatically traded industry.”
