Aiding them in this is the explosive growth of Mobile Real-Time Bidding (RTB). With RTB, various targeting parameters about users can be utilized to serve relevant ads based on their advertiser ID. Ad impressions that are enriched by this third-party data through RTB, enable advertisers to bid intelligently on mobile inventory on an impression-by-impression basis, cost effectively and efficiently. With RTB, ad space across various audience segments is also available to marketers for targeting specific user groups providing greater transparency.
