THE LOCATIONAL ADVANTAGE OF YIELDLAB

Yieldlab is the leading Supply Side Platform (SSP) and Solution for private marketplaces within Europe’s premium publishing industry. Our technology – Yieldlab YRD for yield optimisation and programmatic advertising – allows publishers to monetise their entire media inventory across all channels on one interface, automated and in real-time. As a German company, we place high emphasis on security and service. Therefore, our service and consulting team as well as our development centre and data centre are on site in Germany. Your data never leaves our infrastructure. With a unique concept developed in cooperation with Akamai Inc., we ensure to avoid interference with, or a slowdown of the development of publisher sites. Thus, in comparison with other technologies, our solution is not only more secure but also faster due to low latency in the delivery of advertisements.


MISSION STATEMENT YIELDLAB

On one hand, users demand quality media and media offers; on the other hand, they are getting used to the increasing availability of free online media content. However, the use of resources for the production of quality contents and their provisions is very expensive. The expenditure must be covered by revenue. In order to finance online contents, the amount of advertising space in online media has increased in recent years. But the excess of advertising space caused a steep decline in prices for individual placements with the result that even more advertising space was offered to compensate for the drop in revenues – a situation which is increasingly annoying to users. Users are punishing this nuisance with the general rejection of the advertising industry and increasingly use ad blockers or change media channels.

Yieldlab has made it its task to break this fatal cycle and to continuously provide better solutions for efficient and high-quality financing of digital contents on user- and advertiser-friendly advertising space across all channels.

Successfully so: Today, Yieldlab connects hundreds of millions of Internet users of Europe's strongest media brands with top advertising clients worldwide. At Yieldlab, technical functionality and quality are just as important as service and security. That is premium programmatic advertising – made in Germany.

MANAGEMENT

YIELDLAB – A WELL-ATTUNED CREW

Yieldlab, a technology and consulting firm, was founded in Hamburg, Germany in 2010. The company is primarily serving publishers with premium inventory in the area of yield optimisation in the online advertising market. As one of the first German platforms, Yieldlab enables its partner publishers to optimise their inventory in the form of auction-based or rule-based programmatic advertising as well as to automate their offers to the demand side. Marco Klimkeit, founder of Yieldlab, and his team developed the Yieldlab Supply Side Platform. With the launch of Yieldlab YRD in 2015, Yieldlab once more becomes a pioneer in the advancement of programmatic advertising. Yieldlab became a subsidiary of the Virtual Minds AG in 2013. The senior management of Yieldlab is a well-attuned team.
