Global collective of advertising industry professionals launches open-source resources that allow brands to continue supporting quality journalism during crises

Whenever there is a crisis, many brands pause advertising on news platforms in their scramble to avoid any association with it.

Sovrn ID5 visual

Sovrn has enabled its publishers to achieve an almost two times greater lift in eCPMs thanks to the ID5 ID

To support publishers' monetization efforts, Sovrn ran a test where Sovrn Signal matched participating publisher first-party IDs to consented and permissioned hashed emails (HEMs) in the Sovrn Data Collective. Publishers then passed the HEM to ID5, which attached it to the ID5 ID and passed it to all SSPs supporting the identifier. Sovrn linked permissioned, first-party data from the Sovrn Data Collective on each applicable user visit to an ID5 ID, which was then passed to buyers for evaluation.
