More Than 250 Private Marketplace Deals in Basis Media Automation Platform Streamline Political Ad Approvals -- Automated for Rapid Activation on Digital Video, Connected TV and Linear TV
Washington, DC, October 6, 2022 – Basis Technologies, a leading provider of cloud-based workflow automation and business intelligence software for marketing and advertising, today announced enhanced inventory opportunities via Beachfront, Magnite, and Xandr as key SSP partners among its 250+ curated premium audience and inventory private marketplace deals for political ads. Ready for the U.S. midterm elections with streamlined political ad creative approvals, the private marketplace (PMP) deals are automated for rapid activation on digital video, connected TV and linear TV. Political advertisers can use the Basis platform to scale campaigns across all devices on high-quality content while automating the targeting, buying, activation and reporting.
Approvals on political advertising creative can be laborious because it needs human reviews and verification of buyers and sellers. Previous elections have shown that more than 50% of digital ad budgets were spent in the final 30 days before Election Day (https://basis.com/blog/2020-us-elections-digital-advertising-trends). Furthermore, Basis Technologies’ internal data is showing that an overwhelming majority of digital spend for Midterms may be transacted through programmatic channels, with a significant amount served on CTV devices. Because the bulk of political ads may be served in real-time in a compressed time frame, political advertisers that want to engage voters during the most critical parts of the elections season will need to remove friction during ad activation.
“Premium publishers’ policies and restrictions on political advertising is a challenge in any election year, but 2022 is poised for a perfect digital storm when factors like record spending, programmatic, CTV and a heated political climate are swirling together,” said Grace Briscoe, SVP of client development, Basis Technologies. “Basis Technologies wants to alleviate the pain for political advertisers. With 200+ premium inventory deals blended with our automation technology and proven track record in politics, Basis Technologies gives political marketers peace of mind that digital channels are being maximized to drive desired outcomes.”
Programmatic advertising tools in the Basis platform can enable political advertisers to access an expansive array of premium inventory, with many pre-approved for political ads. PMPs automate buying on inventory sourced from device makers, television and cable networks, ad exchanges and video publishers.
