Netflix pushes programmatic
By: Staff | Jul 13 2015
NEW YORK: Netflix, the online video platform, believes that programmatic advertising can provide numerous benefits for its brand – not least the ability to deliver personalised marketing messages at scale.
Kathy O'Dowd, Netflix's global director/programmatic marketplace and channel development, discussed this topic at MediaPost's OMMA Programmatic Display conference.
"We are moving to programmatic, in part, because it is so efficient, she said. (For more, including tips for brands, publishers and agencies, read Warc's exclusive report: Netflix's programmatic defence balances man and machine.)
"We can be more individualised in the kind of marketing that we're doing – and that's ultimately, I think, every advertiser's dream."
Given that Netflix has an extremely broad potential audience, its need for tailored digital communications is especially powerful.
"You think about Netflix as a brand: we could be a fit for anyone with a credit card and an internet connection. But that doesn't mean that we're going to benefit from approaching everyone in the exact same way," O'Dowd said.
"So, programmatic allows for that database buying. Then, on the flipside, the automation of it is great because we can do individualised marketing at scale."
