5 Glossary of Terms Cost Per Click (CPC) / Pay Per Click (PPC) – Advertisers only pay when a user clicks the ad and is directed to the website – Useful when user destination is most important Cost Per Mille (CPM) / Cost Per Impression (CPI) – Advertisers pay for exposure (view) of their message to a specific audience – Per Mille means per thousand impressions (or number of times an ad loads on the page) – Useful when user education is most important

6 Types of Advertising Search / contextual Social networks & blogs Banner ad networks Individual site placements

7 Search / Contextual Advantages – Can target people who are interested in the material – Pay only on an efficient “cost per click” basis – Generally low-risk – Set what you are willing to pay by bidding Disadvantages – Generally low-impact – Hard to scale because only so many people are searching for any term – Largely driven by news cycles and earned media, so pay-off is hard to predict – Hard to do well without being time-intensive

8 Search / Contextual Example Organic search results. Can’t pay for a higher ranking. Paid search results based on keyword.

9 Social Networks & Blogs Advantages – Large pools of like- minded supporters – Good way to join the conversation and get earned media – Potential for viral or exponential spread – Advanced targeting abilities – In some cases, can also pay on a cost per click basis Disadvantages – Sensitivity of political blogs – Low scalability – Poor ad units – Limited geo-targeting

10 Social Networks & Blogs Example

11 Banner Ad Networks Advantages – High reach – Pay only on a very efficient performance metric – Extensive targeting abilities Disadvantages – Limited control over placements – Less valuable real estate – Potential for showing up on the wrong site – Requires significant investment – Non-guaranteed inventory

13 Individual Site Placements Advantages – Target specific content and placements – Guaranteed inventory – Control your share of voice (SOV) – Allows for advanced targeting: ad sequencing, frequency capping, etc. Disadvantages – Exclusively sold on a cost per mille basis – Generally more expensive – Generally lower response rates – Varying minimum buy requirements – Requires contracting directly with each publisher – No longer self-serve
