There’s hardly any business domain that hasn’t been affected by COVID-19 during the last two years. Digital advertising is no exception. As users started to spend more hours per day with devices surfing the internet or consuming video content, adtech got an incredible rise. According to a Statista report, ad spending accounted for $465,491 million in 2021, and by 2023, it’s projected to reach $560,044 million.

The ways of delivering ads have also changed. In an attempt to adapt to changing user needs, behavior, and preferences, brands are creating more meaningful and personalized messages to deliver them in the right context, tone of voice, and time of day — through powerful adtech solutions.

What’s adtech?

Advertising technology, simply put adtech, is a combination of software systems and tools used to help publishers and advertisers optimize their ad campaigns — generate more revenue from ad inventory and enhance ad targeting correspondingly.

In turn, ad companies provide adtech solutions around audience and ad targeting, programmatic advertising, ad measurement, yield optimization, addressable TV, and more.
