Online regional publishing giant Archant have made a long term commitment with Carbon RMP as they look to continue the strong ties the 2 organisations have developed with innovation and monetisation at the core of that relationship.
Working with Carbon over the last year has seen Archant strengthen existing revenue lines, introduce new revenue, and develop new audiences; all the while helping advertisers improve ROIs and protect the user experience.
Working closely with Archant, Carbon has worked hard to fully understand their business, spending time with their team to identify key areas where it could add real value, and become a true partner, not just a vendor.
From a revenue perspective, Carbon has been instrumental in driving data sales and selling unsold display inventory, as well as exploring new search monetisation through their proprietary search product. Carbon’s audience development capabilities have also been prominent through the use of machine learning algorithms to find new, high performing audiences to activate. For instance, the creation of subscriber audiences helped drive higher adCTRs for a number of subscription ads.
Over the next few years both companies will continue to work closely in the face of new challenges and opportunities publishers face from implementing 1st party solutions and increasing addressable audiences, to implementing new ways of activating audiences such as new prebid solutions and contextual-based tools.
