Whether you’re a brand or agency, creating cost-effective and successful advertising strategies can be a lot to take on. With so many digital advertising tools available, it’s important to take advantage of the things that make life a little easier. The main question everyone has is, “Where do I start?”

We, at WowYow, recommend using a DSP (Demand-Side-Platform), particularly a contextual-based one, such as our own Contextual DSP. However, we understand that there are a lot of platforms in the digital marketplace to consider. In this article, we’ll explain the benefits of using a DSP for your advertising needs.

Targeted Audience Reach

DSPs provide access to a vast inventory of ad spaces across various websites and platforms. Advertisers can leverage sophisticated targeting options, including demographics, behaviors, and interests, to reach their specific target audience. This precision ensures that ad impressions are served to users who are more likely to be interested in the advertised products or services.

As privacy regulations continue to limit the use of 3rd-party data, we recommend using a DSP that runs on contextual data. This ensures user privacy while still optimizing targeting parameters. We explain this in further detail in our article on behavioral v.s. contextual targeting.

Real-Time Bidding (RTB) Opportunities

DSPs operate on Real-Time Bidding (RTB) platforms, allowing advertisers to bid for and purchase ad impressions in real time. This dynamic bidding process enables advertisers to optimize their ad spend by making data-driven decisions on which impressions to bid for. Advertisers can adjust their bids based on real-time insights, ensuring efficient use of their budgets.

Unified Campaign Management 

DSPs offer a centralized platform for advertisers to manage their digital advertising campaigns. Advertisers can set campaign parameters, budgets, and targeting criteria within the DSP interface. This unified approach streamlines campaign management, allowing advertisers to control and optimize their campaigns effectively.

Our Contextual DSP is a one-stop solution for all advertising tasks. You can upload your assets or generate them through our new AI function, choose your format, edit targeting parameters, adjust your budget, view advanced analytics, and much more! While we launched our SaaS product line last year, we also offer a managed service for those that need a helping hand.

Access to Diverse Ad Formats and Channels

DSPs provide access to a variety of ad formats and channels, including display ads, video ads, native ads, and more. Advertisers can choose the formats that best suit their campaign objectives and target audience. This diversity allows for a more comprehensive and engaging advertising strategy.

Video ads are trending right now, producing a lot more audience engagement. With ad fatigue taking its toll on users, it’s important to choose formats that stand out. For example, we offer standard ad formats, as well as new, interactive formats that invite the audience to engage! We love our shoppable video ad format and others like it! Check it out here!

Data-Driven Decision-Making

DSPs enable advertisers to leverage data analytics and insights to make informed decisions. Advertisers can track key performance metrics, analyze audience behavior, and adjust campaign strategies in real time. This data-driven approach enhances the overall effectiveness of digital advertising campaigns, improving ROI and campaign success.

Again, we’d like to remind you that you need to look for alternative solutions for 3rd party data and cookies. Data is extremely important in today’s marketing ecosystem; however, new privacy laws are rolling in fast and have already instigated the Cookie Apocalypse. If you don’t believe us, look around. Last year, Apple made privacy changes that allow users to opt out of tracking, and many others are following suit. Google has already started its cookie deprecation, and it won’t end here. The IAB has been warning the media & advertising community about the need for alternative solutions and has made it clear that the industry is not properly prepared for what is to come.

This is why WowYow will continue to raise awareness for this issue. We talk about possible alternative data solutions here, but we ultimately think that contextual advertising is the best choice.


In conclusion, incorporating a Demand-Side Platform (DSP) into your advertising strategy, particularly a contextual-based one like WowYow's Contextual DSP, can offer advertisers a multitude of benefits. DSPs with diverse targeting parameters allow ads to be delivered to individuals genuinely interested in the promoted products or services. Real-Time Bidding (RTB) opportunities enable advertisers to make data-driven decisions, optimizing their ad spend efficiently.

The unified campaign management provided by DSPs simplifies the complexities of handling digital advertising campaigns, offering a centralized platform for setting parameters, budgets, and targeting criteria. Access to diverse ad formats and channels allows advertisers to tailor their campaigns to suit specific objectives and engage audiences effectively.

Furthermore, the data-driven decision-making capabilities of DSPs empower advertisers with insights and analytics to refine and adjust campaigns in real time. In an era marked by the Cookie Apocalypse and growing privacy concerns, WowYow advocates for alternative solutions and underscores the significance of contextual advertising. By embracing the comprehensive features of a DSP, advertisers can navigate the evolving landscape, enhance campaign effectiveness, and future-proof their advertising strategies in the face of changing privacy laws and industry dynamics.
