How To Optimize Sites and Supply Inventory




November 1, 2023


In this video, we are optimizing a sample report focusing on the site and supply inventory. As a trader, or buyer, our main role is to ensure our ad campaigns are performing as efficiently as possible while maximizing our ad dollar for the highest performance possible.

That mean, we need to trim any underperforming inventory source and understand opportunities with the highest performing ones.

The video covers from A-Z how you should optimize your site list and supply vendors and also include an intro to SPO (buy-side style).
