- Dynamic creative offers triggers that allow for a customised and tailored experience to happen in advertising. We are just getting started with advanced automation tools like this, and it’s an exciting time for creativity in the programmatic space.
- In terms of best practices, there are a lot of tools available to deliver creatives programmatically. But we must remember that we still need to bring creativity to the message that we want to deliver, and not rely on automation too heavily in this process. We must see programmatic as an enhancer of creativity, where we can use data, precision, and efficiency to take it to the next level.
- When thinking about the role of technology in creativity, it’s going to continue to evolve and enable us to get even more creative with the relevancy of the ad experience. We can add layers of creativity starting with the core ID, and then play with additional elements to create depth to strategies. We can also look to measurement, using real-time data to assess the performance of the creative, to adapt the strategy accordingly.
- In regards to what is in store for the future of programmatic creativity, it’s going to be about making ads work better for people. Creatives will work harder to reach outcomes beyond clicks. We will also see steady growth in tech adoption, where more capabilities in the creative programmatic space will be leveraged, including AI and machine learning.
