HOME OF THE ORIGINAL REAL-TIME BIDDING® (RTB) MANAGEMENT SERVICES FOR DYNAMIC PRICING AND MOBILE DIGITAL ADVERTISING ALSO KNOWN AS OpenRTB®
The most outstanding advance in dynamic pricing and mobile digital advertising in recent years has been the growth of Real-Time Bidding® (RTB) …….we invented Real-Time Bidding® back in the year 2005.
We present to you the Price Setter OpenRTB® Clearinghouse value proposition for the redirection of the mobile digital advertising Real Time Bidding supply chain.
The original mobile digital advertising Real-Time Bidding® concept has given rise to numerous derivative technologies such as Programmatic Bidding, Header Bidding, Ad Managers, Mediation platforms an several others; these technologies and their implementers however, instead of improving the original concept they have given room to the creation of a myriad of intermediary players that are causing more harm than good and have led to a dysfunctional supply chain.
Price Setter is committed to redirecting the course RTB has taken in recent years on the digital advertising side by implementing mechanisms that deliver a consistent, seamless, add-dollar centric, user privacy centric, fraud free experience and efficiency across all channels to promote user privacy by default and a trustworthy supply chain in the form of a unified Clearinghouse.
Price Setter’s patent portfolio includes Patent No. 8,533,097 (the parent patent) – No. 8,655,771 (the shopping patent) – 9,892,445 (the RTB patent for shopping and advertising) – No. 10,019,745 (the RTB networks patent) – No. 10,360,608 ( the smart phone and tablet patent) and other unpublished patents pending.
To develop and deploy with the cooperation of existing digital advertising participants a unified clearinghouse comprising a master RTB data base to manage real-time bidding® transactions implementing Price Setter’s patented “Transaction Arbiter” system and method. Advertising agencies and other demand side participants will be able to store and maintain bidding data on behalf of the advertisers/providers they represent.
The various partner digital advertising participants will integrate with the OpenRTB® Clearinghouse via distributed data base clones so bidding transactions can take place with minimal latency. By merging existing digital advertising participants they will be given equal opportunity to share the information and bidding parameters of millions of advertisers/providers and run transactions based on their own specialized technologies, filtered query categories, by location, by user options or by other predetermined parameters ; this method will not only give equal access to partner digital advertising participants but will also enable advertisers/providers to compete simultaneously in unified auctions.
The new OpenRTB® Clearinghouse will also safeguard user information, reduce ad fraud, increase accountability and transparency on how the ad dollar is distributed.
The digital ad ecosystem has an enormous problem and is in desperate need of a correction. Statistics show that publishers only get approximately 30% to 50% of what advertisers pay for an ad, the rest is consumed by those “making the market”. In addition, billions of ad dollars are lost each year through click fraud, bid caching, , arbitrage and other fraud schemes.
Many bad actors on the supply chain do not want to fight ad fraud because that would reduce their own revenues. It is estimated that 1 in 5 ad serving websites and apps are visited exclusively by fraud bots. The Verge
Today, advertisers may deal with more than 20 intermediaries – agencies, trade desks, DSP’s, ad exchanges, data management platforms and SSP’s, there is no clear way to calculate exactly how the ad dollar is distributed.
A streamlined and consolidated digital advertising supply chain is an approach that brings coherence to the complexity and fragmentation that now characterizes the flow of advertising dollars. Specifically a streamlined and consolidated supply chain refers to the process of aligning and implementing mechanisms to deliver a consistent seamless, ad-dollar centric experience and efficiency across all digital advertising supply chain channels.
The solution lies in the key shift from a culture of competition among the demand side participants to a culture of collaboration, and with increase collaboration comes increased organizational consolidation. Now, do not take this wrong, competition is the game here but the existing supply chain methodology is helping competing intermediaries and hurting advertisers and publishers who are the ones that make the digital ecosystem exist.
