By activating it within Smart curated deals (Auction Packages), the agency was able to quickly and easily activate the following segments:

Style & Fashion


Health & Fitness


The agency benefitted from the precision of contextual targeting combines with the scale of cross-publisher deals in order to reach its target audience and KPIs.

CTR (+30% vs. other deals)
Visit Through Rate (+5 points vs. other deals)
“Contextual semantic targeting enabled us to achieve better performance with above-average CTRs, as well as greater profitability, with an overall lower cost compared to third-party data activation. Thanks to a simple and efficient operational activation via Auction Packages, we were able to meet the advertiser’s objectives.”
