Great. You’re in the right place.

What is programmatic advertising? How does it work?

Programmatic advertising is probably one of the most complicated forms of digital advertising. In a nutshell, it’s like ad buying in bulk from exclusive marketplaces, usually accessed via gigantic exchanges like Google Marketing Platform (a.k.a. Double Click), Oath, or StackAdapt. We pick the target audiences, we write the copy, we design the ads and we set a budget. Then, the exchanges bid for us in real time, display your ads to the precise customer who meets the targeting requirements and budget!

What is display advertising? How does it work?

Display advertising used to be synonymous with banner ads, but it can refer to any visual ad on a website. Videos, pictures, widgets, surveys — It all counts as display advertising. Display advertising can also be programmatic advertising, though it may also be a more straightforward pay-per-click (PPC) model, too.

There are some well-known facts about banner ads that you can easily discover using Google. For example, wide ads perform better than narrow ones. You can find that info anywhere. But here at Single Grain, we have our own vault of little tricks, hacks and how-tos, and we’ll use that knowledge to get your business the best return on investment possible.

How do you charge?

No client has the same goals, business or budget. So we build every campaign (and every estimate!) from scratch after a new client’s initial consultation. Yes, it’s harder. Yes, it’s more complicated. And yes, it’s better for everyone.

If you want to know how much high-impact programmatic advertising, media buying and display advertising are going to cost you, just give us a call. We’ll talk you through every last detail.

What makes you different from other digital advertising agencies?

We are completely client-driven and committed to customized, cutting-edge digital marketing campaigns. We don’t recycle ideas, strategies or even proposals. The minute you become a Single Grain client, your business is our business. We will do everything in our power to ensure your company grows through thoughtful, innovative and expertly-targeted programmatic advertising and display marketing.
