Understanding sell-side advertising companies

Sell-side advertising companies, like Magnite, assist publishers (such as YTV) in maximizing revenue from their advertising inventory. They achieve this through various methods, including:

  • Ad serving: Technology that manages the delivery and display of advertisements on a publisher's website or app.
  • Inventory management: Tools and strategies for optimizing the value of a publisher's ad inventory.
  • Providing access to advertisers: Sell-side companies connect publishers with potential advertisers through their platforms and networks.

The adoption of SpringServe technology by YTV demonstrates a growing focus on optimizing video advertising experiences and revenue for publishers in the digital age. As online video consumption continues to rise, this trend is likely to become even more prominent.
