Understanding Remaining Inventory
Unlike premium inventory, inventory left consists of non-monetized media space on your site. This is especially common on small to medium-sized sites, particularly in the early stages.
The valuation of media spaces is linked to your site’s segment and the number of monthly impressions. To estimate your remaining inventory, it’s crucial to gain loyal readers through well-crafted content.
However, the lack of buyers for the surplus inventory doesn’t mean a lack of solutions. This space will be sold, requiring different approaches from those used for already-commercialized spaces.
Strategies to Monetize Remaining Inventory
After negotiating and selling part of your media inventory, some impressions may “remain” and require distinct approaches. Here are some tips to optimize the remaining space:
- Programmatic Platforms: Auction off the remaining space on programmatic platforms for monetization. Even if sold at a lower value, it remains a source of income.
- CPC or CPA: Consider monetization through cost per click (CPC) or cost per action (CPA). This non-guaranteed strategy means advertisers pay only when a click or conversion occurs, yielding variable revenue.
- Dynamic Allocation: The competition between AdSense and Ad Exchange in DFP can be the best option to monetize remaining inventory. This competition can significantly elevate the CPM value.
