My first weeks with Relevant: Samuel Palmér

2017/12/11

Samuel started working for Relevant as an System Architect in October. He is working with our development team to bring our up-and-coming Relevant Apps product to the market. With this new product, data providers for Relevant Audience will get full insight on their data selling performance – per day, site and audience segment. This will add another level of transparency and automation for our Audience data providers.

With a background in the online advertising industry – Samuel is keen to help Relevant provide their customers with a wider sets of tools to monitor, react and act upon their data and other revenue streams. Both on the sell- and buy-sides of the digital ecosystem.

We asked Samuel some questions about his first experiences of being part of Relevant team.

What got you interested in working for Relevant?

I’ve known Relevant for years as a highly competent and trustworthy company with an online marketing know-how second to none in the Nordic region. Therefore I didn’t hesitate many seconds when the opportunity emerged to be a part of this company – and to help developing Relevant Digitals product suite.

What makes the digital industry compelling to you?

The online advertising industry have transformed during the last years from consisting of relatively simple products (ad servers) showing (in most cases irrelevant) banners – into a data-driven and increasingly sophisticated digital market, with a wealth of exciting challenges, many of them still waiting to be solved. To work on the forefront of such evolution – is something that I believe is interesting for anyone with a passion for technical problem solving.

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

The friendly and open minded atmosphere at Relevant is something that I think makes everyone in the company focus better, not only on their own tasks – but on helping each other achieving our common goals. I like the transparency within the company where all information you need to understand the company’s direction is shared to everyone.

Would you like to join to our Relevant team?

Are you an experienced veteran in the digital industry who is looking for new challenges or just starting your career, but want to learn about online advertising and online media? Relevant are continuously looking for a wide range of talent to strengthen our team. Check our open positions.

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.

2019/02/27

Using multiple sales systems is a part of the everyday life for almost all media, especially in programmatic sales of advertising. Increasing the number of technology partners is necessary to achieve sales growth, but at the same time sales tracking and reporting gets more complicated. We solved the challenge by developing a tool that enables multiple SSPs and Adservers’ monitoring and reporting in one interface.
