Programmatic Targeted Display (PTD), is advertising that streamlines the online media buying process by using automated software to target the speciﬁc customers you are trying to reach.
The software ﬁnds the best possible websites and social media environments to advertise your speciﬁc products and services based on the online behaviour of your target demographic.
PTD is like using Orbitz or Expedia to book a vacation as opposed to booking your ﬂight and accommodations separately: you tell us who you want your ads to reach, and our software ﬁnds the perfect combination of websites to place them on for maximum value, brand recognition and sales conversion.
PTD is an ideal marketing tool for both general brand awareness/development and for promoting speciﬁc calls to action.
Your desired audience is deﬁned by tracking their online behaviour and crunching the data into a custom advertising plan for your business. Data used includes:
What kind of device your target audience using
Which web browser they’re using
Their physical location
How recently they’ve made a purchase online
What keywords they use in search engines
The types of websites they visit
When you sign up for programmatic targeted display, we create a series of display ads for you that ﬁt the size requirements of any web site or mobile device.
These ads are then distributed to various websites via site retargeting, search retargeting, geofencing and social media.
You will have a higher conversion rate if your ads feature a speciﬁc call-to-action such as a discount or special leading to a custom landing page on your website. A call-to-action could also lead to a white paper discussing a number of topics, an offer sign up page etc.
Detailed analytics are calculated and distributed to you monthly so that you can see how each ad is performing and which channels are the most effective.Open Analytics Report Sample
Your ad displays on the screens of people who have previously visited your website to recapture their interest.
Your ad displays on the screens of people based on their search history and which keywords they’ve used to search for products and services similar to what you offer.
Your ad is shown to potential customers based on a very speciﬁc geographical boundary to attract customers to your business. In Bermuda, we can geofence by Parish or highly trafﬁcked area (Dockyard, Airport). When targeting an overseas audience (i.e. U.S., U.K. or Canada), we can geofence by building (Convention Centre), street, city block, etc.
Geofences work by enticing customers to a virtual “Conversion Zone” around a physical location, letting businesses measure the amount of oﬄine physical traﬃc directly resulting from their ad.

Example b - Targeting International
