Academy for Ads - Series 9 - Programmatic



Again Google has stepped up and given users of the Partners platform an Insights Tab that can help them learn all about AdWords and online advertising. Even as a seasoned pro, you can still brush up your skills and earn some new badges. Who doesn't like badges? Follow the link, sign up, and dive into the first lesson!


The ninth category available is Programmatic. There are some great videos to watch here - all with the aim of teaching you something new about ads and their online uses. It's also a great primer for new hires! This is all knowledge each Partner should have, but why not flex your expertise and get a badge?


Programmatic opens onto six subcategories:

  • Buy ad space in real time
  • Gain control with ad serving
  • Get your ad where it gets results
  • Keep them coming back with remarketing
  • Meet the programmatic participants
  • Track conversions to improve performance

I'm sure you'll find the modules useful - no matter your skill level. It's just another great gift to digital marketers and small agencies from the thoughtful folks at Google! And did I mention the badges? We'll take a look at more offerings next week!
