  • In online advertising, there are many ways to buy ad space on publisher websites.

  • In this example, we'll look at the process of buying ad space directly from the publisher. This is called a direct buy.

  • At an advertising agency, it's the job of a Media Planner to figure out where their

  • client's ads will run. So, if the client is selling pro-sports fan gear, then they'll

  • want to show ads on sites where sports fans hang out.

  • Once the Media Planner has picked the websites where they want to run their campaign, they'll

  • contact the publisher directly with an RFP, or Request For Proposal.

  • The RFP outlines campaign goals, run dates, and target audience. It also includes budget

  • details, like how many clicks or impressions they hope to get.. and how much the agency

  • is willing to spend.

  • When the publisher website receives the RFP, they'll review the list of requirements and

  • the agency's budget and compare it against their available inventory. Inventory refers

  • to the number of ad slots a publisher thinks they'll have available on specific pages on

  • a given day.

  • This can be tough to determine since publishers don't know exactly how many visitors will

  • come to their site, let alone which cat video will be most popular on a particular day.

  • While nobody can predict the future, publishers use prior trends to estimate how many visitors

  • will view pages on their website. This is called forecasting.

  • If the publisher has inventory that matches what the agency's looking for, they'll return

  • the RFP with a list of options and prices.

  • When the agency and publisher agree on the number of impressions or clicks, as well as

  • the cost, the agency creates an IO, or Insertion Order to seal the deal. The agency signs the

  • IO and sends it to the publisher. Once the IO is signed by both parties, it's considered

  • a legally binding contract.

  • After the campaign goes live, the publisher serves the client's ads as promised. And..

  • when the campaign is over, the publisher sends a bill for the ad space so the agency can

  • keep up their end of the deal.

  • And then, everyone is happy.
