Captify has today announced the next evolution of its use of Xandr’s platform, Xandr Curate. Programmatic buyers will be able to activate Captify’s live, intent-driven audiences – built by billions of real-time searches from global publisher and e-commerce sites – across curated multi-seller video private marketplaces (PMPs) in one of the largest omnichannel, global exchanges.
Xandr Curate facilitates the combination of Captify’s search-powered audiences through its Programmatic Search Intelligence (PSI) product with the ultimate high-attention environment, to pioneer the use of this powerful data set for brand awareness strategies, prospecting new customers and capturing viewer attention.
Commenting on Captify’s partnership with Xandr, Krish Raja, General Manager of Australia at Captify said: ‘Our partnership with Xandr will support growth in the Australian market and provide a unique solution for brands that have had to compromise data for inventory, or the other way around. Now, in a single, dynamic PMP programmatic buyers can seamlessly activate intent-rich audiences in premium supply at scale. Brands can unlock critical search-powered insights that move the strategic needle without the need for cookies.’
Brand marketers know that demographic and age profiling is no longer enough to constitute an in-market audience and until now, the inability to get closer to intent has meant that those strategies have had to suffice, leading to wasted spend. Captify’s unique PMPs, which allow brands to access both off the shelf and highly customized interest and intent-based segments, are intelligent audiences that are updated every five minutes as consumer behaviors change. The freshness of the data pinpoints the early signals of interest, fast-tracked life moments, sporadic and trigger moments, unpredicted consumer passions, all the way through to immediate purchase intent, powering more efficient, effective and impactful video campaigns at scale, across any KPI.
Additionally, as consumer media consumption habits shift to online environments and streaming content, buyers are following suit. As video inventory moves from direct channels to programmatic channels, buyers are moving from buying on the open exchange to private marketplaces or “deals” as they are looking for safer ways to buy and better access premium inventory.
Xandr Curate enables data owners – publishers, retailers, data providers – to leverage their unique assets and generate additional revenue by reaching programmatic media buyers. The platform allows customers like Captify to create deals that combine their proprietary data with every type of inventory format from sellers on the Xandr Monetize SSP, one of the largest omnichannel, global supply exchanges. The exchange-level deal IDs are tradeable through any DSP on the market.
The platform offers a fully self-service UI, distinct from the managed service products available across most other platforms.
Erica Blakslee, Senior Account Director, Xandr, says, “Publishers, retailers and data providers often have valuable data assets they are not monetising effectively due to the lack of existing sales channels that offer the commercial control they want, with the programmatic tradability buyers demand. Xandr Curate solves this by making it easy to package and price proprietary assets against Xandr’s global supply footprint into an exchange-level deal ID that’s tradeable through any DSP in the market.”
With the impending elimination of the third-party cookie, access to addressable audiences is becoming critical for media buyers. Captify’s Search Intelligence, which is not reliant on third-party cookies, solves for the lack of real-time consumer intent in the programmatic ecosystem and will continue to power intent-driven targeting strategies in a post-cookie world.
The Xandr Curate platform is also available to agencies, global marketers, scaled publishers and publisher coalitions.
