BUILD A CUSTOM EXCHANGE
As the competitive landscape intensifies, publishers and premium supply partners are turning to custom exchanges, which combine access to the major sources of RTB demand while maintaining strict control over ad quality and yield. AppNexus provides the best of both worlds, with instant access to quality demand sources, best-in-class yield management capabilities, next generation ad serving capabilities, and the ability to ensure the highest quality experience for their users. Some of the world's largest supply partners - including Technorati Media - use AppNexus to power their real-time custom exchanges.
ACCESS TO INSTANT DEMAND
Create new revenue streams
Through the AppNexus platform, you gain instant access to hundreds of demand partners, such as Infectious Media. Combine that demand with your existing buys into one complete strategy for maximum monetization of inventory.
Regulate your custom exchange settings
AppNexus allows you to regulate how transparent your exchange inventory is to buyers by controlling the visibility of your sites, the information shared about them, and which demand partners can buy from you. Your own private marketplace means you remain in control.
Rich media and video
AppNexus supports programmatic buying for a variety of valuable rich media ad formats including video, expandables, interstitials and innovative custom creative types. Enable your inventory for rich media and reap the benefits.
YIELD MANAGEMENT TOOLS
Best-in-class yield management capabilities
Set automated rules based on your own data or rate card, and control the lowest prices being paid for your inventory.

AppNexus provides clients with a next generation ad serving suite. By running your managed and tier-2 business on one unified system, you reduce operational headaches and gain a broader view of your overall strategy.

Consolidated financial clearing to simplify payment
AppNexus mitigates the risk involved with payments and collections and minimizes the operational complexity of financial clearing. Let AppNexus handle the grunt work so you can focus on your true value proposition.
Human and automated auditing
On the AppNexus platform, offering security and safety for publishers is critical. Sherlock, our proprietary malware scanning technology, is running 24/7 to scan creatives for malware or blacklisted URLs during their lifetime on the AppNexus platform. The AppNexus human audit team reviews thousands of creatives and labels them for content, brand and technical attributes so that you can ensure brand safety for all of your inventory.
Control over ad quality
Enforce which creatives are allowed to run on your sites according to rules that track the language, category, technical attribute, or brand that our auditing team applies to every creative running through your site.
