We are all aware of the fact that as a publisher it can get very challenging and demanding to be noticed by potential advertisers – let alone locate and contact those trying to reach a website’s demographic or specific content areas. A new solution now will help them connect both sellers and buyers of online advertising with much more ease. 

Benefits to publishers

It is intended at simplifying the traditional process of ad buying, to enable Ad Planner advertisers to see, and request to buy, reserved ad space from publishers, directly. The beta launch of DoubleClick Ad Planner Marketplace from Google’s DoubleClick will help publishers in various useful ways.

For instance, they can market their available placements in Ad Planner, directly. It attracts countless media planners daily. They can review and then accept/reject specific buying requests from a host of advertisers in their Ad Planner account, directly. It will allow them to set up their placements fast, and also to set the price of the inventory they will make available for sale.
