Formerly known as Sizmek/RocketFuel/x+1, Zeta DSP offers you the power and the control of AI with the option to use standard or real-time AI-driven capabilities where and when it makes the most sense. Zeta DSP enables you to harness AI to execute higher-performing media by enabling more data and integrating with its market-leading creative platform. Zeta gives you the option of using all of your data to make more personalized and effective connections, so you can truly inspire audiences.

The Zeta DSP difference

The Zeta DSP was built from the ground up with Artificial Intelligence at its core. Over the past decade, Zeta and its predecessors invested more than $200 million. This experience means something -- since they’ve been at it for longer, their AI system has had 10+ years to mature, evolve, and prove itself across tens of thousands of campaigns. This unmatched technology results in better performance across multiple objectives because the platform can respond faster and consider more data.

  • Real-time AI decisioning: Smarter targeting decisions and unrivaled results across multiple KPIs. Campaign performance improves as learnings increase: Zeta’s AI identifies the key performance signals and uses these learnings to improve ad targeting and efficiency
  • Intelligent bidding methodology: Dynamic bidding drives greater campaign efficiency with each impression opportunity uniquely scored at bid time
  • Identify insights across the 5 Cs of data: Campaigns, customers, context, creative and costs. See the predictive power of every data attribute
  • More campaign data, readily available at your fingertips: Understand exactly where your dollars are going, who’s responding, and how it all fits together

The Zeta DSP enables partners to: 1) uncover new audiences/customers with AI-driven discovery, 2) create meaningful audience/customer experiences, and 3) gain a clear understanding of media delivery, costs and impact.

Cross-Device Optimization and Attribution: Unlock the power of cross-device data and targeting to drive real performance:

1) Predictive Marketing and Tech: Unified profiles leverage 60-200% more data for enhanced decisioning.

2) Built to Drive Performance: No other company is able to optimize cross-device performance metrics like Zeta.

3) Greater Scale, Better Accuracy: The most accurate probabilistic cross-device data, with much greater reach than other measured companies using probabilistic data.

4) Cross-Device Attribution: Link conversions happening on one device to impressions from another device (e.g., a desktop conversion influenced by a mobile ad).

Benefits of Cross-Device Optimization: 1) Better Performance (25-35% average lift in conversions versus single-device campaigns (when using cross-device attribution), 2) Valuable Insights (understand which devices are driving performance, the influence of Unified Profiles, and the optimal media mix for your other campaigns), 3) Cross-device Reporting (accurately attribute each impression’s influence on conversion no matter where the ad was served or where the conversion occurred).

Dynamic Creative drives performance by creating personalized messages to audiences in the moments that matter most. Single and Multi-Objective Campaign Optimization of partner objectives and primary and secondary goals. Multi-Objective optimization enables campaigns to achieve multiple goals without sacrificing reach or efficiency.

Performance, Scale and Speed are the keys to Zeta’s Dynamic Creative. Performance: Use Zeta’s Moment Scoring technology to intelligently predict the products that will drive the most sales. Scale: SmartGrid technology enables dynamic layouts allowing advertisers to easily scale to many ad sizes automatically. Speed: Turnkey solution is streamlined and easy to set up so that dynamic creative can be set up and running in days, not months.

Multi-Objective Optimization enables campaigns to achieve multiple goals without sacrificing reach or efficiency. Ideal for campaigns with dual goals such as Viewability and VCR, or Viewability and In-Target Rate. Campaign wide optimization for any media plan means it can deliver greater reach and effectiveness than segments approach.

Zeta DSP offers many partner integrations and an open platform ecosystem with open APIs. It connects to over 50 audience and other data providers and over 200+ ad exchanges’ premium ad inventory.
