Google Analytics 360 and DoubleClick platform functionality
What is the difference between the DoubleClick platforms?
- DoubleClick Campaign Manager is an ad server that simplifies trafficking tasks and reporting. This also allows for direct media buys.
- DoubleClick Bid Manager is a demand-side platform (DSP) that enables yourself, or Jellyfish Dynamix on your behalf, to purchase display ad inventory via real-time bidding exchanges.
- DoubleClick Search is a search management platform that allows you to run campaigns across multiple engines and media channels.
- DoubleClick Studio is a tool that can be used to produce rich media creative quickly.
Is there a higher rate for rich media (video, banner, instream) impression and CPM rates?
Yes, there are higher CPM rates for rich media. Please contact us for rates.
How does Analytics 360 Suite and DoubleClick work together?
As a Google Analytics 360 partner and reseller, Jellyfish Dynamix can implement and support Analytics 360, as well as DoubleClick technology.
Analytics 360 integrates natively with ad-technology, such as AdWords and, of course, DoubleClick. The DoubleClick platforms share the DoubleClick Cookie ID and Google ID, which in turn is mapped to device IDs from mobile devices. Using Analytics 360 alongside DoubleClick, we can use your data and our analytics and attribution expertise to optimize your campaign.
Can I use DoubleClick Campaign Manager without DoubleClick Bid Manager or vice versa?
Yes, you can. However, when buying media both programmatically and directly, there are major benefits to using DoubleClick Campaign Manager and DoubleClick Bid Manager together. Contact us and we will be happy to discuss your individual situation.
Does DoubleClick facilitate private deals?
Yes, it does. First of all, contact your desired publishers (directly or through the ad exchanges), and then let us know the Deal ID that you have negotiated. We will make that inventory source available to your account. If you want more information on what packages are available from publishers, your dedicated Jellyfish Dynamix account team can offer additional support.
What device types can I advertise on with DoubleClick?
You can use DoubleClick to advertise across apps, connected TVs, desktops, tablets, and the mobile web. As more devices become available, we’ll keep you updated.
What targeting criteria can DoubleClick use?
DoubleClick allows you to pick the exact sites, devices and formats that your advertisement is shown on, as well as the audiences who you want to see it. There are many combinations of variables and audiences that are available, including positive or negative targeting variables.
As an example, if you want to target all the desktop devices with the language set to Spanish, browsing the Mashable website, aged between 25 – 34, in Illinois — that audience is yours.
- DoubleClick Bid Manager (DBM) can generate reports for planning and audience targeting. This includes overlap and availability, and be used to help scope out display activity.
- Additionally, there are campaign and performance reports, and a custom report builder that gives access to a large volume of vectors, dimensions, and metrics to assess your activity.
- The reporting and attribution center in DoubleClick Campaign Manager (DCM) also gives you access to cross-channel reporting and both rule-based and data-driven attribution models.
- All reports are downloadable in .csv format.
Can I set up my own KPIs and metrics for success?
Yes, you can. How exactly you can set up your own KPIs and success metrics is partly determined by how you have tagged your site, app or other digital assets. However, as long as tagging reflects your own KPIs and metrics, you can then report on these. DoubleClick Bid Manager’s buying algorithm even allows you to automatically optimize your campaigns to your business goals.
Can I use a third-party data platform to manage or analyze where and how my data gets used? Who owns my data? Can Google share my data with other companies?
The majority of data management platforms (DMP) are natively integrated with DoubleClick Bid Manager and DoubleClick Campaign Manager. This means that access to your custom data is simple. You retain full control of your data sets and audience lists within the platform. DoubleClick is a pure-play ad technology vendor, unlike many of the others operating in the programmatic space. Because of this, Google has no interest in sharing your data to benefit other advertisers’ campaigns.
