Top 3 programmatic digital OOH predictions for 2023


Due to the current economic climate and the uncertain times we’re going through, advertisers and brands need flexibility and efficiency with their media spend more than ever.

Marketers are left head scratching over 2023 after the pure chaos that was digital advertising last year


In the Bible, there’s a parable about the man who built his house upon the sand versus the man who built his house upon the rock. When the rain fell and the floods came, the house on the sand washed away. Meanwhile, the house on the rock stood.

That parable may have become more relevant across the digital advertising landscape after the advent of Apple’s iOS 14 data privacy measures made performance marketers’ jobs more difficult.

Those that built their businesses upon Meta and or Google Analytics reporting faltered. Meanwhile those that diversified both client ad spend and reporting metrics weathered the proverbial storm that was 2022, with many already making plans for 2023.
