Revolutionizing Programmatic Advertising: ANA’s New Benchmarking Service

The Urgent Need for Transparency in Programmatic Advertising

Recent revelations have shed light on the pressing issue of waste in programmatic supply chains, urging marketers to take proactive steps towards addressing this concern. In response, the Association of National Advertisers has launched a transparency initiative known as the “programmatic benchmarking report” to assist its members in gaining better insights into their media spending.

The Unveiling of Murky Ad Tech Practices

Key revelations from the ANA’s preliminary transparency report and subsequent reports by Adalytics have exposed questionable elements within ad tech business practices. These reports have highlighted how brands’ media spending inadvertently supports dubious areas of the internet, such as “made for advertising” websites.

These findings underscore the necessity for brands to enhance their management of online media budgets and prioritize education within their marketing departments. The ANA’s latest transparency initiative aims to address these issues by providing marketers with tools to assess the efficiency of their programmatic supply chain.

Evaluating Programmatic Supply Chains

Through the programmatic benchmarking report, marketers will have the opportunity to evaluate their supply chains in collaboration with TAG TrustNet. Participants will gain insights into the quality of data received for ad impressions, the visibility of impressions, and the prevalence of ads on MFA websites.

By extrapolating this data, marketers can better estimate their ‘true CPM’ and identify areas for improvement in their supply chain operations. This initiative, led by the ANA, aims to enhance transparency and accountability within the advertising industry.

Fostering Trust and Accountability

As the ANA prepares to host its flagship media conference in Orlando, Florida, discussions on the importance of transparency in ad tech will take center stage. The industry’s shift towards greater transparency reflects a growing recognition of the need for trust and verification in marketing practices.

By focusing on the right metrics and fostering a culture of accountability, marketers can combat fraudulent practices and elevate industry standards. The ANA’s programmatic benchmarking service represents a step towards rebuilding trust and ensuring the integrity of advertising practices.
