Freiburg/ Hamburg, November 8th 2018. tisoomi is expanding its technology cooperation with the adtech companies of virtual minds Group. Active Agent, tisoomi and Yieldlab now make adblock traffic bookable programmatically following the development of a joint technical solution for campaign optimisation of adblocker traffic with ADITION technologies.

Adblocker traffic is valuable and meanwhile the best performing audience segment in many campaigns. This is also because users with an activated adblocker have the same level of advertising acceptance as users who have not installed an adblocker, according to an independent study carried out by Hamburg Media School and the University of Florida. Owing to technical restrictions, it had previously not been possible to integrate adblocker traffic into the buy-side’s programmatic booking methodology – the relevant target groups had to be made available via insertion order (I/O) in the managed service, which is a booking method that is used ever less frequently by media agencies.

In view of this situation, the multichannel demand-side platform Active Agent, the anti-adblocker service provider tisoomi and the premium publisher supply-side platform Yieldlab have created a sustainable and continuously programmatic route for booking adblocker traffic. Advertising companies and their media agencies can now gain automated access to high-quality campaign contacts and media placements within the scope of private deals via Active Agent made exclusively available to them by tisoomi via Yieldlab. Publishers such as Scout24, Computerbild and kicker are already integrated into the offer at the launch. The aim is to expand the number of connected online platforms continuously in the next few months.

“Adblocker traffic is significantly more than a niche placement and virtually indispensable for a sound media plan. The programmatic access to this valuable traffic that is now available makes it easier for media planners to reach their target group optimally,” says Yildirim Balci, Managing Director of tisoomi.

“Making it possible to buy high-quality adblocker traffic on an automated basis perfectly fits Active Agent’s aspiration to give media agencies and advertising companies continuously a competitive edge via value-oriented buying of the most varied inventories from a single platform,” explains Thomas Weitzer, COO of Active Agent.

Ghanem Awn, COO of Yieldlab, adds: “Yieldlab has consistently aimed its platform at providing innovative solutions for maximising publishers’ sales. With the solution now created for the programmatic monetisation of adblocker traffic, we underline this brand essence and offer our clients clear added value.”
