A “deal-heavy” future for Publishers


Over the years, deals have become a key part of publishers’ monetization strategies. Today, publishers use deals to sell their most valuable inventory and strengthen their relationship with demand. We expect this trend to increase in the future with the ever-growing focus on user privacy and first-party data, along with the need to better understand and work closely with demand.

Adomik is fully committed to supporting publishers in growing their deal businesses and getting ready for a “deal-heavy” future. This means releasing brand new features such as our Deal app and Benchmark sales opportunities, but also working on the little things that streamline publishers’ organizations and make them smarter on deal management, eventually allowing them to increase their revenue.

After a few months of working hard on deal management features, we are happy to share with you a quick recap of all the “little things” that we have released since September… and the ones we are planning to make available in the coming weeks!
