Unlock new channels and drive high-intent leads to your business with Rocket as your programmatic ads agency

Programmatic ads is the current rocket-fuel in the world of digital advertising. It’s earned a bad rep for being too complex, too expensive and inaccessible for businesses of a certain size. This is certainly not the case. The digital experts at Rocket Agency can help you tap into the power of programmatic ads and expand your marketing campaign and results in ways you didn’t think were possible.

What is programmatic advertising anyway?

Programmatic advertising offers a smarter, faster, and ultra-targeted approach to advertising. It allows advertisers to leverage 3rd party data to deliver ads to potential customers who are genuinely interested in what you offer. With programmatic advertising you can access ad space on a number of channels across the web including CTV, Digital Out of Home, Display, Audio, Social media etc using real-time technology. 

For example, programmatic ads provide a relatively low-cost entry point for you to advertise your products and services to those watching Kayo, Channel 7 and the like, without having to directly contact and purchase ad on space those platforms. Exciting, isn’t it?

How do programmatic ads work?

Programmatic ads take the right message and the right time to the right person, quite literally. Every time a user uploads a webpage or an app, there’s a lightning-fast auction that happens for advertisers, sharing information about the visitor and the site. This auction decides which ads get shown to that user. 

At Rocket Agency, we use cutting-edge technology and data insights to ensure that your ad is the one that wins the auction and is displayed to your ideal customer. We help you bridge the gap between your ads and your audience with sophisticated real-time bidding.

Programmatic ads FAQs

Is programmatic advertising suitable for businesses of all sizes in Australia?

Certainly! Programmatic advertising is suitable for businesses of all sizes in Australia. Its scalability, targeted approach, cost efficiency, and data-driven insights make it adaptable to different budgets and goals. Whether you're a startup, small business, or large corporation, programmatic can help you reach the right audience, optimise campaigns, and achieve better results in the ever-changing digital landscape.

However, at Rocket, we understand that there’s no silver bullet in marketing. Just activating programmatic ads is unlikely to give you sustainable marketing results. These campaigns will likely have to be supported with high-converting landing pages, search marketing, email marketing and the like to maximise their return. For these reasons, we find that programmatic is better suited to established businesses that are able to invest over $5000 in always-on awareness campaigns or one-off promotional campaigns.

What platforms or channels can I use for programmatic advertising campaigns?

When it comes to programmatic advertising campaigns, you have a wide range of platforms and channels at your disposal to effectively reach your target audience. Here are the key platforms and channels you can leverage:

  • Digital Out of Home (DOOH): Broaden your reach beyond screens with programmatic DOOH ads displayed on billboards, transit stations, airports, and other outdoor locations. This dynamic approach engages audiences on the go. This has been recently launched in Australia, with compelling options for local businesses. 
  • Connected TV (CTV): Reach viewers as they stream content on smart TVs, streaming devices, and other connected platforms. CTV ads offer a highly engaging way to connect with audiences during their leisure time. You can place your ads in front of those watching reruns of shows on Channel 7, Kayo and the like. 
  • Digital Audio: Programmatic audio ads can be delivered through popular streaming platforms, internet radio, and podcasts. This channel allows you to reach users when they're tuned in to their favourite audio content, offering an exceptional personalised ad experience. 
  • Display/Video: Deliver eye-catching visuals through programmatic display and video ads on websites and apps, which is a massive step up from standard display ads. This channel is effective for both brand awareness and direct response campaigns.
  • Social Media: Use programmatic advertising on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and more. Tap into users' interests and behaviours for highly targeted campaigns. The benefit of running this via Programmatic is that you don’t need to set up a separate budget/campaign structure. It’s all consolidated in one platform with other channels. 
  • Gaming/In-Game: Reach gamers in their virtual worlds through programmatic ads integrated into gaming environments. This emerging channel allows for creative and immersive experiences, engaging niche audiences effectively. 
  • In-App Advertising: Reach mobile users through programmatic ads within mobile apps. This channel is especially effective for app install campaigns and engaging mobile audiences.

Remember that the choice of platforms and channels should align with your target audience's preferences, behaviours, and the goals of your campaign. Rocket Agency's expertise can help you navigate these options and craft a programmatic advertising strategy that maximises your reach and impact.

Can programmatic advertising help me reach a specific audience in Australia?

Absolutely, programmatic advertising is incredibly effective for reaching specific audiences in Australia. It uses data to precisely target audiences based on demographics, behaviours, and interests. With real-time optimisation and audience segmentation options, it is possible to tailor your ads to those most likely to engage with them. Whether you want to target users by location, online behaviour, or previous interactions with your website or brand, programmatic's capabilities ensure your ads resonate with the right people, boosting engagement and conversions.

How much budget might I require for programmatic ads?

Programmatic ads are typically purchased on a CPM (Cost per thousand impressions) basis. The minimum spend to activate programmatic ads depends on the platform, the size of your target audience, the channels you choose and your campaign goals. Some programmatic ad platforms require a minimum spend as well. 

You can launch programmatic ads for as little as $500 per month. However, at Rocket, we’ve found that clients get a reasonable ROI when they invest $5000-$10,000 on programmatic ads, as this gives us the opportunity to tap into audiences across a broader range of channels. This investment is best suited to established businesses that have access to high-quality ad creative.
