YIELDLAB YRD

YIELDLAB – UTILISING THE WHOLE POTENTIAL ON ONE PLATFORM

You determine the rules: Whether for desktop, mobile or video inventory, in the age of multi-screen application and automated media commerce, publishers need a flexible and integrated advertising platform in order to manage their complete inventory and to offer it to media buyers. To do so, the Yieldlab Publisher Solution YRD displays all constellations and contract situations allowing the publisher to easily manage them on one interface. Publishers determine their own pricing strategies and sales rules – open auctions, fixed placement, guaranteed inventory or Deal IDs – for selling their inventory to buyers across all advertising channels.

Publishers determine their own pricing strategies and sales rules – open auctions, fixed placement, guaranteed inventory or Deal IDs – for selling their inventory to buyers across all advertising channels.

Yieldlab YRD is able to display all market-relevant deal types for publishers on its interface. With the help of Deal IDs – numeric codes, which are exchanged between seller and buyer – advertisers can purchase defined inventory on placement level.

Before access to the inventory is granted, the consent of the publisher is needed – at Yieldlab YRD nothing happens without the publisher’s involvement. That is our promise: We are always on the side of the publisher so he can get the most out of his inventory.

VERSATILE AND FLEXIBLE WITH SIMPLE ACCESSIBILITY OPTIONS

A system for everything: Private marketplaces (PMPs) have proven successful in the area of automated premium marketing to grant access to certain inventory classes only to selected media buyers as well as to efficiently display agreements between media agencies, buyers and publishers. Our Unified Yield Approach enables publishers for the first time to manage the demand for their entire inventory on just one system, one platform and one interface.

Regardless of special agreements with selected partners, open or private auctions: The Yieldlab YRD Platform is based on the marketing strategies of the publisher and caters.

Yieldlab YRD, as a unity, has proven itself to be a unique and effective marketing platform for premium publishers.


BRAND SAFETY AND AD QUALITY – QUALITY CONTROL ON CAMPAIGN LEVEL

Protect your media brand. Brand safety is not only important for advertisers but is an important criterion for premium publishers in establishing a successful marketing strategy. All of our publishing partners are well-known media brands which pay close attention to the type of advertising displayed in their environment. To eliminate brand-damaging campaigns, hundreds of advertisers are being manually reviewed and evaluated by the Yieldlab Operations Team on a daily basis.

In addition, all advertisers are being monitored centrally and can be blocked at any time using blacklisting. Publishers are also able to directly block certain advertisers denying them access to their inventory. A special feature: Yieldlab YRD enables publishers to choose the Brand Safety Option for all their marketing channels. This option allows the central control of the quality of the entire desktop, mobile and video inventory.


DISPLAY, VIDEO, MOBILE – YOUR PARTNER FOR ALL MARKETING CHANNELS

The use of media is becoming more and more fragmented resulting in the formation of various specialty platforms which offer publishers an optimal introduction into programmatic selling. However, truly optimal would be just one single, stand-alone platform solution which combines automated selling of mobile, video and display. It would be the solution to avoid inefficiency and double costs.

Whether mobile In-App or mobile websites, stationary offers, InStream or OutStream video placement, with Yieldlab YRD, publishers are able to automate the marketing of all their contents across multiple channels from one central interface. Thus, Yieldlab YRD is the first multi-screened supply-side platform focusing on the inventory of premium publishers.


FLEXIBLE CUSTOM PRICING STRATEGIES

Yieldlab YRD is able to display all inventory sources at various price levels across multiple channels offering publishers full flexibility in establishing their own auction rules. With the PMP functionality integrated in the platform solution, it is possible to display all contract situations and constellations between supply and demand sides and to transfer them into programmatic real-time monetarisation.

Thus, publishers can establish individual minimum prices for each placement option and reduce access to certain auctions by means of Deal IDs and blacklisting and/or whitelisting. In addition to these minimum prices, fixed prices from pre-negotiated deals of the direct sales team can be taken into account. Our experienced Publisher Solutions Team will be happy to assist you in developing the optimal sales strategy for your inventory.

The following pricing strategies are available to you with Yieldlab YRD:

1. Open Auctions

2. Private Auctions

3. Preferred Deals

4. Automated Guaranteed / Programmatic Guaranteed

5. Fixed prices (without auction)


YIELDPROBE – ACHIEVE THE OPTIMUM

An important part of yield optimisation is our Yieldprobe solution. Yieldprobe is an API that can easily be integrated into the publisher's existing system environment and, per request, can be based on the AdServer. It ensures that overarching yield optimisation is obtained between the publisher's directly sold campaigns and programmatic advertising in order to meet set goals even better. We call this Unified Yield Optimisation.

Yieldprobe is already integrated in a vast number of the most popular websites.


WHITELISTING / BLACKLISTING – CENTRALLY VIA ALL CHANNELS

Multi-level control: Publishers are able to protect existing campaigns and revenues by means of whitelisting and blacklisting as well as to ensure that no one is able to purchase such impressions at a lower price – lower than the current high-price campaign – in an open auction.

Due to its integrated approach, the Yieldlab Supply Side Platform functions like a private marketplace for all marketing channels and inventory classes. On the Yieldlab YRD interface, the access for each individual demand partner and advertiser can be carefully selected and controlled. Contrary to common market praxis, we realise this through a multi-step control system.


INSIGHTS – NEXT GENERATION SSP REPORTING

Reporting via Yieldlab YRD enables publishers to comprehensively analyse extensive campaigns, advertisers and their own offer with an unprecedented level of detail for SSP ensuring optimal yield management across all channels. With these findings, hidden potentials can be revealed and the minimum prices can be adjusted at placement level. The result is an increase in revenues with full transparency and complete control. In comparison to many competitors, we understand comprehensive reporting to be an integral part of our supply side platform. We help publishers to learn more about their inventories and buyers. To do so, we provide our customers with Yieldlab YRD Insights at no additional charge.


OPEN APIs – EASY CONNECTIVITY OPTIONS

Yieldlab YRD provides maximum transparency and control over all customers, channels, campaigns, inventories and targets. For this reason, we have developed the Yieldlab platform as an open system for third party providers from the start and have already engaged into several collaborations with tech companies which are using our Enterprise and Data APIs as well as Yieldlab Adtag and Yieldlab Yieldprobe. Our open interfaces build the base for individual publishing solutions for providers of reporting systems, Ad Verification specialists, as well as for the integration of CRM and BI systems.

YIELD OPTIMISATION

COMPLETE YIELD OPTIMISATION FOR ALL INVENTORY CLASSES ACROSS ALL CHANNELS

Initially, programmatic advertising is merely a more efficient processing method to offer inventory to the buyer side via automated systems. Yieldlab YRD combines such efficiency with the publisher's internal yield optimisation. So far, classic inventory optimisation was characterised by manual processes and strict division by inventory class. Yieldprobe is a mature optimisation technology which determines the best buyer for each individual Ad Impression in real-time.
