Great week last week and this one is off to a great start.
Last week: We had a product walkthrough of Ad-Juster's ProgrammaticIQ. Here is the recording. Yes, Stuart's laptop freezes halfway through and I really could have made more for the opportunity. Next time, I'll have some jokes ready.
The best part though were the questions – y'all brought it. That's what I love about this community. Thank you.
This week: I'm waking up on a Monday morning to see people signing up for RevOpEx in London. We're closing in on 60 and the sessions are starting to come together.
For the London event, I'm working with Tom Bowman and his survey is going to be part of the results. Please help. Here are the details:
The 2019 Ad Ops Pro survey is uniquely designed to understand how frontline advertising and revenue operations professionals view the year ahead: from common issues across the industry, to challenges and opportunities. It is being conducted by Colab Media Consulting in association with Beeler.Tech
(in advance of their RevOpEx
event taking place in London on 28th
February) and FatTail
who have kindly sponsored the section on revenue management solutions. The survey takes about 7 minutes to complete and all respondents will receive a summary of results. Your responses will remain anonymous without your explicit consent. We look forward to gathering your views! Please use this link: https://survey.sogosurvey.com/r/Qf7Djb
