Our clients opinions

We've been with working with Yieldbird for 6 years now. Thanks to them, these years were the most profitable ones for our publishers in their history. Always open for discussion, highly skilled professionals ready to listen, trying to help no matter what… that's how I see Yieldbird. Keep it up!

STEP Network have worked with Yieldbird as our prebid technology partner for more than 4 years, and finalized the migration to Prebid Stack for the +100 websites we manage. It allows us to operate at scale from a centralized Adops team, without almost no involvement of the publisher's developer resources. This is highly important to scale as a Network. By adding features such as “Lazy Auction” and support for SPA website technology, the product is for us future proof towards the development in Adtech and our expansion as a Publisher Network.

Considering we were looking to focus on content creation and UX improvement, the decision to outsource our Programmatic management was something natural. After almost 2 years of cooperation, we are very satisfied with the choice of Yieldbird as our Programmatic partner. Yieldbird has helped us to not only significantly build revenues, but also has proven crucial in its support with issues such as GDPR and First-Price auction.

I can definitely recommend cooperation with Yieldbird to all Publishers who care about high revenues, but who do not necessarily want to invest time and resources to create or expand an in-house team. For us, the possibility of delegating this work to a partner has been a great help – we have full control, but we don't need to do everything ourselves. Besides, thanks to Yieldbird, we now know what the market is like and we are not closing ourselves in our own bubble.

Head of Publishers / STEP Network

As a large media group, we strive to ensure that results from the monetization of websites are the result of a well-thought-out strategy, and not some random series of activities. Working with Yieldbird, we appreciate that as our partner they keep their finger on the pulse and endeavour to ensure that the key parameters for Advertisers (e.g. Viewability) remain above the expected standards. At the same time, we are pleased that Yieldbird has implemented improvements that are in keeping with the specifics of our inventory, and has introduced changes that accord with the character of individual sites.

Deputy Director of Online / Infor Biznes

By the time we had discovered Yieldbird's Price Genius solution, we had already tested a number of external solutions. Our goal was very clear – we expected an increase in Programmatic revenues because we felt that, based on the basic advertising setup, we were not achieving optimality with the website. Price Genius was distinguished by the fact that the automatically set price rates quickly “learned” the specifics of our inventory; and in the first weeks of operation we noted a financial uplift. But additionally, we now had what we had not found with other solutions on the market: we had a reporting system, and specifically aggregated and presented key metrics so that we could compare like with like.

Do I have to provide access to my Google Ad Manager? If yes, why?

Yes, we do need access to the Ad Manager. It is used for two purposes:

1. To do all the setup (e.g., create the necessary key values, line items, validate that there are no technical obstacles, etc. - the exact scope differs from product to product).

2. To gather data for performance reporting.

How often do I have to adapt the Yieldbird Tag?

Once you add the Yieldbird tag, you don't have to change it at all, regardless of changing the product's setup, adding new ad units, or testing new products. The Yieldbird tag implemented during the implementation process is sufficient and doesn't need to be changed.

I have more than 1 GAM account. How is it handled by Yieldbird Platform?

For each GAM account, you will have a separate Workspace. There is no way to have multiple GAM accounts on one workspace due to the specifics of how each product is configured in the Platform.

Do I have to sign a long-term contract?

No, regardless of which product you use, you can cancel anytime you want with immediate notice.
