Use AI to automate floor prices
Ad Networks are AI-driven marketplaces owned by BigTech. These AI models are optimized to maximize revenue for the BigTech company. These models keep pushing the boundary of what is the lowest eCPM they can pay out. So if Hindi eCPMs are at Rs. 10, they will keep pushing the floor to Rs. 9.90 across a couple of months.
Hence, it is critical for news publishers to invest in AI to reverse push the boundary of the floor price up until the sell-through drops. By playing on buy and sell, you could see a 25% increase in programmatic revenue. Revenue from advertisements is seasonal. Hence, of course, do this during high-demand months (Oct-Nov-Dec) and play it conservatively from Jan 1.
