Smarter Media Buying. Genius Targeting.

Precision counts in your Media Buying & Planning

PROBABILISTIC SIGNALS

Most media buying used to rely on probabilistic signals. For example, if someone browses for baby clothes, a cookie tags them as a “new parent.” However, this doesn’t account for grandparents, neighbors, or coworkers shopping for baby clothes. It only tells part of the story.

DETERMINISTIC SIGNALS

Agency Creative uses deterministic signals to better understand consumer behavior. For instance, lets look at that same customer buying baby clothes. We see that they are linked to a loyalty program that tracks their purchases over time. By reviewing their purchase history, we see no signs of them being a new parent, such as buying baby food or diapers, but they did buy a gift bag and card. This suggests the baby clothes were a gift, so we don’t place them in a “new parent” segment. This precision allows Agency Creative to target and communicate with consumers accurately, ensuring relevant messaging.

Predictive Targeting

So how do you reach people if privacy regulations hinder or completely exclude groups of people from awareness? Our partner, AdTheorent, builds custom machine learning models using historic and real-time data to predict future actions for each campaign. We can pinpoint consumers utilizing a combination of demographic, psychographic, and behavioral data sets. We can also integrate Amazon shopper data into our approach. This provides an unbeatable solution, custom tailored for challenger consumer brands striving to capture market share. AdTheorent’s predictive platform learns who will convert and identifies what factor is driving performance. This becomes more important overall but is especially relevant in Healthcare Related Campaigns.

Geo Intelligence

The power of predictive targeting combined with location. Suddenly, you can reach consumers who are currently at, or have recently been to, a specific location and have the highest probability of a desired action.

Cross-Environment Mapping

Using contextual and other privacy-friendly signals, we can now offer cross-device, relationship and visitation targeting by using AI to find the connections between devices and their locations.

But what about cookies?

With AdTheorent as our partner, we don’t just rely on cookies or one-to-one advertising anymore. By ingesting aggregated and statistical data for modeling and targeting, cookies are no longer needed. Not to mention, AdTheorent positions us very well with privacy-friendly unified IDs so we don’t have to worry about intruding on anyone’s privacy.

As you can see, you need a partner that can take the guesswork out of programmatic buys so that you’re not only armed with the right impressions but also with the right insight to read those impressions.

Not all data-driven media buying is created equal.

When it comes to programmatic CTV we need to control ad frequency and maximize efficiency which saves money and avoids wasted impressions. Controlling the ad frequency is key to boosting household reach. But what makes those connections deeper? What makes them more effective? Especially in our increasingly privacy-regulated world.

Our award-winning partner, AdTheorent, brings machine learning-powered programmatic with a new strength in media buying that wasn’t thought possible just a few years ago. Here’s how AdTheorent, as our partner, can help us navigate privacy regulation and ID resolution, while simultaneously leveling up to more effective connections that can go across the funnel, not just the top.

With CTV, we’re not at the tipping point. We’ve tipped.

The cable bundle is in full decline. Cord cutters otherwise known as Connected TV (CTV) are going full stream ahead.

Powered by massive consumer shifts and a surge in ad-supported streaming, the way media is purchased has completely changed. In fact, ad-supported streaming has officially surpassed that of cable TV as of 2022 and that gap only grows each year. By 2027, there will be TWICE as many Ad Supported Video on Demand (or AVOD) viewers as pay TV viewers according to eMarketer and Insider Intelligence. That means 195 million AVOD versus 91 million pay TV viewers. Think of the potential that you may be missing out on.

After many years of doing our own creative work and marketing, we took the plunge to hire professionals. We met with a few agencies before deciding and we were initially incredibly impressed with Agency Creative. From the beginning, the team worked to understand our business and sort through 'who we are' using their process. Meeting after meeting, we were taken aback by the depth and time they spent learning 'us'. We joke internally that they may know our business better than we do! We really enjoying the working relationship that has developed and they're part of our team. Something that truly resonates with us is the blend of creativity, technology, and just smarts that exist at the company. The value their team brings to our company is immeasurable and we can't foresee working without Agency Creative as we move forward.

The folks at AC were excellent. I wasn't sure what to expect, as this was my first time to utilize an ad agency. I was very pleased with the process. They brought vast amounts of experience and energy to our project, and their team showed a real interest in learning as much about my company as they could. They created a plan which produced positive results. I highly recommend Agency Creative. Thanks for the partnership!
