Shifting Media Buying Trends: Programmatic Advertising Dominates

“Increase in New Direct-to-Consumer Brands Post-Pandemic”

The COVID-19 pandemic has permanently reshaped the landscape of entrepreneurship. As thousands of individuals worldwide found themselves unemployed with limited traditional job prospects, a surge in new business ventures emerged.

According to data from the US Business Formation Statistics (BFS), there has been a sharp uptick in business applications since the beginning of 2021. This trend has given rise to a new wave of disruptive brands in the consumer retail sector. These direct-to-consumer (DTC) companies handle all aspects of their products, from manufacturing and marketing to sales and distribution, cutting out intermediaries.

Direct-to-consumer brands experienced rapid growth during the pandemic, driven by shifts in consumer purchasing behavior and increased online engagement. However, their success has also attracted intense competition from both established corporations and emerging players.

This evolving landscape has spurred a heightened demand for media buying services, as businesses seek ways to distinguish themselves in a crowded marketplace. With the assistance of media buying agencies, companies are now delivering more sophisticated and tailored advertisements to their target audiences through the most appropriate media channels and at precisely the right times.

“Programmatic Advertising: The Future of Media Buying”

Media buying trends are evolving away from traditional channels and towards over-the-top media (OTT) and connected television (CTV). Programmatic ad buying is poised to become the dominant method for media buyers in the future. Programmatic advertising involves the automated purchase of online advertising impressions. It relies on intricate interfaces and algorithms to consolidate, book, assess, analyze, and optimize advertising campaigns.

The advertising industry is characterized by constant change and innovation, which can be challenging to keep up with. However, these changes present new opportunities and improved performance prospects. Programmatic advertising has experienced exponential growth in recent years and is expected to continue doing so. It is conceivable that most segments of media buying will become entirely dominated by programmatic methods in the coming years.
