Kevel
For ad serving, implementing client-side header bidding with prebid was actually easier with Kevel than it is with Google Ad Manager in most cases, particularly for display advertising. I found though that with more complex integrations (like video), there were more solutions and code snippets available with other larger ad servers (Google).

In terms of co-creation, the process of working with Shareaholic was easy and pleasant. Furthermore, the design of their site is clean and modern. The Shareaholic team is also active on social media, a quality I like to look for when targeting products for content collaboration

Alternatives Considered
Kevel
Kevel was an easier initial implementation for header bidding with prebid. The team worked alongside us to make sure everything was operating as intended. We ultimately switched to Ads Manager to access AdX demand and other features that were not possible with Kevel (for instance, EBDA). There are benefits to both but I appreciated the attention we got from Kevel support when we were first working through the implementation. We are still using Kevel for many things, just not as our primary display advertising ad server.

Return on Investment
Kevel
  • Kevel enabled us to get up and running with client side header bidding when our team was still small and the technology was still new. This improved our ability to monetize our inventory.

  • We got a great backlink from collaborating with Shareaholic, which improved our organic online rankings, and hopefully also led to an increase in client contact and retention.
