The majority (69%) of media planners and agencies now use online advertising networks as part of their digital ad buys, representing a 24 percent increase in the past 18 months, according to a new study by Adify Media.

Russel-Fradin "Especially in light of the Dynamic Logic study that found that creative quality is 50 to 75 percent responsible for campaign success or failure, agencies must start evaluating the creative capabilities of networks," said Russ Fradin, president of Adify.

"As the industry looks for better ways to engage, not just reach, their audience, brands need to focus on compelling creative that builds an ongoing conversation with consumers and placing it where consumers spend time."

Other key findings from the survey include:

— More money is being allocated online each quarter:
   – 56 percent of respondents’ budgets were more than $500k in 2008.
     73 percent were over $500k in 2009.
   – In 2009, 37.9 percent of the respondents spend between $1-5 million
     per quarter on online advertising, 15.2 percent of respondents spend
     $5-20 million per quarter, and 5.9 percent spend more than $20 million
     per quarter on online advertising.

Branding is a major focus for online ad campaigns:
   – 83 percent of respondents allocate 50 percent or more of their budget
     to branding vs. direct response.

Awareness of vertical ad networks (VANs) continues to grow as a way to
   reach niche audiences:
   – 72 percent are familiar with VANs versus 56 percent in 2008.

    As a one-man operation publishing low-volume niche sites, ad networks are essential for me. Of the tens of thousands of affiliate programs out there, it is next to impossible to shop, implement, test, and track which ones will work on which of my sites. (Not to mention, which ones are going to be truthful in their reporting and payment!) An aggregator does this for me. Sure, they take a percentage of the overall revenue, but some of something is MUCH more than all of nothing for me.
