Jelli Launches SpotPlan™, Radio's First Programmatic Buying Platform

Demand and Supply-Side APIs Also Released for Direct Integration with Platform

SAN MATEO, Calif., March 12, 2014  /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Jelli (http://www.jelli.com) launched SpotPlan™, the first programmatic buying platform for radio advertising.  In addition, the company announced the availability of demand and supply-side APIs to enable third-party buying and selling software to tap directly into Jelli's ad platform.

"SpotPlan disrupts how network radio has operated for decades, replacing inflexible network 'vehicles' and antiquated spreadsheets and email-driven processes.  Media buyers can now target audiences with SpotPlan and its powerful data-driven tools, buy optimized plans with dynamically generated lineups, and run ads automatically nationwide," said Mike Dougherty, Jelli co-founder and chief executive officer.  "The availability of our new ad platform APIs will allow broadcasters, networks and advertisers to more easily move into programmatic advertising by allowing existing third-party systems to directly interoperate with our platform."

SpotPlan gives media buyers and planners the ability to analyze audience goals and plan radio campaigns dynamically, via a powerful web-based application.  It automates processes that are historically email or spreadsheet-based, and integrates with Jelli's advanced RadioSpot™ radio ad server, enabling end-to-end automation of buying, running and reporting of radio ad campaigns. 

Fast and easy-to-use
A radio ad buyer uses SpotPlan to set parameters against audience targets and campaign goals, dynamically creating plans including optimized station lineup, daypart, impressions, GRPs and audience targets.   SpotPlan uses advanced algorithms in conjunction with Nielsen data to develop in real-time the best plan to achieve the goals of the buyer, based upon the inventory currently available in Jelli's platform.

Once an insertion order is created, the audio creative is uploaded into Jelli's cloud platform, and RadioSpot serves the ad on radio stations nationwide, strictly complying with campaign specs. Jelli's real-time reporting platform, RadioDash™, provides the buyer real-time analytics about the campaign, as the spots run in each market.

New Demand and Supply-Side APIs
Jelli also announced the availability of its API program.  The new APIs give Jelli's partners the ability to integrate their enterprise-class media buying and traffic systems with Jelli's programmatic advertising platform.  This will provide customers the power to buy and sell through RadioSpot from their in-house systems.

RadioSpot's Demand API will allow media buying software and demand-side platforms to programmatically target audiences, plan campaigns and buy from inventory available through
RadioSpot. Jelli's RadioSpot Supply API will enable traffic software and supply-side platforms to programmatically price, package and sell inventory through RadioSpot. 

Attracting radio stations nationwide
Jelli's platform is already fueling rapid growth in radio advertising and has resulted in more than 350 stations in 128 cities nationwide using the platform, reaching 44 million unique listeners weekly, with billions of  radio ads served on an annual run-rate basis. Jelli has struck partnerships with major radio operators and networks including Townsquare Media, Entercom, Emmis owned WQHT-FM (HOT 97) in New York City, Sun Broadcast Group, Focus 360.

However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
