y definition, programmatic buying allows advertisers to hit their desired audience with every impression while providing instant feedback as well as a strong foundation to make optimizations. Conceptually, it sounds as if every campaign should drive results through the roof. However, the reality of advertising is that campaigns sometimes miss the mark. But (in my best John Madden voice), that’s why you play the game (and don’t run ad campaigns on paper)! While missed KPIs are never a goal, they should be far from a nightmare. It’s surprising that so many marketers throw the baby out with the bathwater when talking about why a campaign failed, mislabeling misses as “bad data.” Good, bad, or ugly, data received from a campaign is always a source of fuel that helps power optimizations for live campaigns and valuable knowledge for future initiatives. responded to buying a new chopper are also concerned with the merits of vinyl versus aluminum siding for their garage, or paying for their kid’s college education. Perhaps the preconceived notion about the audience is incorrect. They shouldn’t be looking for hardcore bikers, but rather for men suffering from mid-life crises looking at a motorcycle as a way to rekindle their coolness. You know, the whole “can’t judge a book by its cover” theory. The next round of campaigns can optimize toward this mid-life crisis audience, and the brand can expect to see the original desired results. How do we achieve the best outcome possible from a less-than-stellar campaign? Without digging too deep, there are so many small things to look for in every campaign, whether the KPIs were low or off the charts: So why does data get thrown out? Advertisers and agencies often operate on the mindset that failure is something to be avoided like the plague, rather than something that can be learned from. I’m not here to say that every caterpillar is a butterfly, but too many marketers pull the plug on poor performing programmatic campaigns without really giving them a chance to mature. Programmatic buying allows marketers to test campaigns, learn and adjust. Marketers may even learn that their notions of their target audience are false. Let’s look at an example using an American motorcycle brand. If you asked 20 random people on the street what a motorcycle owner looked like, they would probably think of a crowd of tatted-up, rough and tumble dudes who spend a lot of time maintaining their bikes. Think Jesse James or the types of guys you see on American choppers.
