My first weeks with Relevant: Rasmus Josefsen

2017/09/05

My first weeks with Relevant: Rasmus JosefsenRasmus started working for Relevant as an Data Analyst in June. Rasmus is working with analysis of online data and creating segments for Relevant Audience, the data marketplace which offers high quality audience segments from data providers and publishers, to qualify advertisers programmatic media buying. Rasmus is assisting sell side customers to find the most valuable audience assets and buy side customers to find most valuable audience. Many hours are spent on monitoring, evaluating and developing audience segments.

We asked Rasmus some questions about his new role with Relevant Audience and the his first experiences of being part of Relevant team.

What got you interested in working for Relevant?

What piqued my interest for Relevant was its emphasis on transparency, addressing a need in the market that is getting more urgent as data starts to occupy a larger role in the industry. It is inspiring to work for a company with a vision towards a fairer marketplace that generates new revenue sources for publishers while increasing the effectiveness for advertisers.

As a consumer Relevant’s focus on high quality data to target advertisements is also interesting. My growing frustration with online advertisement that has no relevance for me, makes me sympathize with those who would use an ad blocker. The advertising industry can do better, and Relevant is!

What makes the digital industry compelling to you?

The increasing use of ad blockers is evidence of the fact that people are swamped with information. Data is increasingly being used to benefit people’s lives in a multitude of areas, and the same is occurring in advertising. Targeting through data will improve the relationship between advertisers and customers, and result in increased revenues along with customer satisfaction.

It is motivating to work within an industry undergoing such rapid growth and the resulting challenges, participating in the process of leveraging digital advertising to its true potential.

What have you enjoyed mostly during your first time at Relevant?

The first weeks at Relevant I have been consistently impressed by the breadth and quality of the publishers signing up. This is echoed in the data quality and makes it a pleasure to work with segmenting data.

The team has also been excellent in welcoming me in and collaborating across borders. There is an energetic atmosphere and focus on helping each other perform as experts in the industry.

Data traders’ drop out game has started?

2019/03/27

Last week, it was reported that Oracle has stopped selling AddThis data in Europe. Data traders who collect their data in contravention of the GDPR can still be found in bulk and we believe that the removal of AddThis is just a prelude. We will see significant market cleaning done during this and next year and the first signs of this are already visible in the Nordic countries.

How to improve the visibility of ad placements?

2019/02/27

Placement visibility plays a significant role in business on commercial sites. Ad visibility has for long been a hot topic among publishers, advertisers, and agencies. The visibility of the placements, or viewability, is measured by in-screen values. Paying attention to the visibility of placements can significantly affect your earnings. Bad in-screen values tell the publisher that at least these things need more attention.
