Google Says Programmatic Direct Is Due for a Rise in 2017

Programmatic direct isn't a new thing. In fact, two or three years ago it was being touted as the future of buying and selling digital media. And for a time, those who did the touting looked foolish because programmatic direct never really became a "thing."But like header bidding, which had been around for years before finally taking off with publishers near the end of 2015, programmatic direct seems poised for a lift in 2017 thanks to renewed interest by agencies and publishers.The concept behind programmatic direct is simple: While the open ocean of digital advertising is often bought in real time, sometimes digital media buyers want to lock up particular ad inventory, especially video, on premium websites such as The New York Times ahead of time. They may want to lock in a decent price on ads they know they'll want, or just to make sure they've got the right placements for a campaign they're planning. And buying via programmatic ad tech can, in theory, make it easier to find and assemble certain consumer targets across publishers than buying with one publisher at a time.
