Merkle Launches New Publisher Addressable Marketplaces Solution

Merkle announced the launch of Publisher Addressable Marketplaces (PAM)™. PAM represents the industry’s first premium programmatic advertising solution that enables deterministic, people-based targeting and measurement across premium publisher audiences and inventory. Publisher Addressable Marketplaces is a consortium of publishers including latest additions Trusted Media Brands and Pandora who have created access to their known audiences and premium content, powered by Merkle’s data, analytics, universal ID and platform, and made available to advertisers and agencies. PAM facilitates the direct match of advertisers’ de-identified first-party, customer and prospect data with publishers’ known subscriber and logged-in user data, in conjunction with Merkle’s DataSource™ database, which covers over 90% of US consumers and more than 1,000 attributes. This creates CRM-based audiences that can be targeted on a cookie-less, one-to-one basis, with more relevant ads across publishers in mobile and desktop. PAM allows for publisher placement-level planning, targeting, and reporting in a privacy-safe environment. It offers fraud-free, above-the-fold placement with both guaranteed and non-guaranteed audience buys across multiple premium publishers. PAM is a fully integrated solution powered by a combination of Merkle’s CRM data onboarding and analytics and Sonobi’s JetStream platform that is open to both advertisers and agencies. The initial launch of Publisher Addressable Marketplaces will include premium publishers such as Pandora and Trusted Media Brands as well as ad platforms including Viant and LiveIntent, who are among the first to enable the addressable audience marketplace. Moving forward, Merkle will be introducing additional publishers and technologies to serve the open, people-based ecosystem.
