Consider Reach

The impact of your message will be proportional to the number of unique people exposed to it. In the age of data driven advertising, niche targeting certainly is powerful and should be used. For prospect, keep track on the unique users that you target and find.

Look at the top formats of your selected site lists to get guidance in what creative formats to produce.

Estimating Budget & Max CPM

Estimating Media Cost

By clicking on the site id of a given site, an inspection view will show the average paid CPM at different percentiles. This gives an indication of the media cost for a given site.

As a rough rule of thumb:

  • Display: 35 SEK CPM
  • Display retargeting: 50 SEK CPM
  • Video outstream: 80 - 140 SEK CPM
  • VIdeo instream: 160 - 220 SEK CPM

Estimating Impressions

To estimate available weekly impressions for selected inventory:

inventory unique users * wanted frequency (per week) * estimated average win rate

Remember to consider costs for any audiences + targeting options used. If targeting small audiences, a site list with wide reach is likely needed.

Planner Tool

We are working on an interactive planner tool that can be used to estimate budget, avg CPM, max CPM, impressions, clicks and unique reach for selected site list and / or audiences. Estimated fields may have values entered to put known constraints on estimation.
