Raise your hand if you’ve ever been building an ad campaign on Hulu, and when you get to the audience selection section, you audibly heave a “that’s it?” about the available options. The alternative is to bring over third-party audience data like Tunnl’s, but then a new issue emerges: Platform-imposed data usage fees. Most ad platforms play nice with outside audience data, but only at a cost. Essentially, whenever you want to advertise against a third-party audience, your ad platform will tack on an extra charge. Why? All that data requires resources to collect, aggregate, and store securely without any liability landing on the advertiser. We’d know; Our Tunnl audiences sit atop billions of lines of media consumption insights and survey data that need genius teams and constant diligence to maintain. But since third-party audiences allow you to spend less, get your ads in front of the right people, and maximize your ad spend ROI, are data usage fees justifiable? There are a few things you should know, including how data usage fees are calculated, who you’ll pay them to, and whether or not they’re worth the added expense. Once you nail down those details, you’ll plan your next campaign with a clearer idea of what you’ll spend using third-party audience data.
