“My experience with AdTheorent during a recent campaign was nothing but positive. Utilizing RTLM, AdTheorent was able to efficiently optimize towards our campaign KPIs, improving day-by-day over the course of an extremely short flight,” said Jennifer Sacks, Digital Planner, MEDIA STORM, LLC. “After the campaign wrapped up, AdTheorent provided deep learnings into our core audience, illustrating the time of day when our users were engaged, apps and content verticals that performed strongly, and even drilling down to the type of device and carrier where users were apt to interact. These insights will help us plan accordingly for future initiatives.”
