The Best Inventory For Your Campaign

With technology and science behind the decisions we influence, we've gone beyond site list purchasing and developed what's called Placement Quality Index (or PQI). By learning real-time from the data our software collects, we are able to quickly optimize inventory for each campaign. For brand advertisers and agencies, PQI ensures your video ads get placed within the most relevant places, reaching attentive audiences; not to mention ensuring brand-safe sites with the highest-quality content. This all achieves strong brand results and higher brand lift. For publishers, a high PQI rank attracts the best-fit premium brand advertisers, therefore maximizing CPMs. It's smarter thinking resulting in video advertising that performs better for everyone.

 

How Does PQI Work?
YuMe's PQI uses a proprietary inventory grading algorithm to ensure best inventory placements for the brand advertiser's objectives

The Math Behind Attention

At its core, YuMe's PQI uses a proprietary real-time inventory grading algorithm to ensure that every campaign gets the best possible inventory across our Connected Audience Network. We quickly learn from the data our SDKs collect. We collect data about every impression ever run in our inventory, such as player size, player location, brand performance metrics such as brand lift, and purchase intent over time. This data is analyzed to determine the most attentive placements for brand advertiser’s objectives. Check out the infographic for more information!
