What is Unique About Programmatic Print?

Not only is this the first time print audiences have been offered through a digital media buying platform, but it is also the first time that these audiences have been sold on a CPM basis, irrespective of individual print titles. Historically, to buy these audiences clients would have to negotiate with each publication.


With Programmatic Print, the buyer simply buys their desired audience target, and Time Inc will distribute their ads across magazine titles to meet the targeting and reach of the buys. In addition, print metrics are available to buyers from MRI
