Deals in programmatic ad-buying allow buyers and sellers to negotiate a price and terms for inventory that could either be directly purchased or available through auctions.
The Deal Report simplifies troubleshooting and deal diagnostics to determine whether deals managed through the Deals Page are receiving bids and actively transacting.
By default, the Deal Report aggregates metrics at the Deal level, but can also be split out by Account, Campaign, and Line Item. It provides end-to-end visibility of all metrics for a given Deal such as Auctions, Bids, and Impressions. This also enables forecasting QPS for specific deals.
How it Works
You can access the Deal Report from the Reporting tab based on your assigned role in Buzz.
The Deal Report is aggregated at the deal level and reports on metrics such as spend, vendor fees, impressions, bids, and auctions.
Currently, Deals Report relies on the Deals page to determine eligibility for this report. Only deals that are available on the Deals page can be aggregated. As of now, Deals Report does not include location dimensions of the deal (such as platform, geo, and so on). However, it shows information about the associated:
- Line Item
Additionally, Deal Report focuses on a few other deal-specific fields that are accessible in the report including:
- Deal Name
- Deal Alternative ID
- Exchange Handle for the Deal
- Deal Format
These are derived from the Deal Object setup on the Deals page.
Deal Report Implications or Nuances
- A deal can be eligible for multiple line items. Therefore, auctions can be duplicated across rows(a given Bid Request can contain multiple deals).
- For Bids/Impressions, only the targeted/matched deal gets reported.
- The Deal Report also shows deals with zero auctions.
- Based on the grouping in the report, auctions get de-duplicated.
