Growing ambitious brands through programmatic & data expertise

Programmatic enables advertisers to plan and buy media at scale in the most effective way for their business, and truly measure the impact. It allows us to leverage audience data from advertisers and publishers, as well as execute creative dynamically based on online and offline triggers, unlocking value and efficiency not otherwise achievable.

The opportunity programmatic media buying enables can be business-transforming – whether you’re looking to build brand awareness or drive conversions. The challenge lies in getting the strategy right, and then executing at scale – that’s where Croud comes in.

Our approach


We start out by gaining an in-depth understanding of your business and goals, ensuring all activity is aligned with these, whilst also maintaining the ability to flex and adapt to changes in the fast-moving programmatic space.


Data capabilities and technical integrations allow us to optimise every element of programmatically executed activity. Being fully tech-agnostic means we cherry-pick platforms and partners on a client-by-client, and campaign-by-campaign basis.


Everything we do is underpinned with an audience strategy fuelled by data, and our hands-on teams have the skill and expertise to launch full scope activity, including Display, Video, Audio, Native, DOOH, YouTube and CTV.

The Croud difference

Our team of programmatic specialists provides end-to-end expertise, from media strategy to ad operations. Our Croudie network then enables us to quickly scale activity, as well as tap into niche areas of expertise.

At Croud, our performance marketing heritage makes us experts in driving results for our clients, and consolidating this through advanced measurement and attribution models, enabled by our in-house tech and data science teams.

We put testing and innovation at the heart of your campaigns, ensuring all campaign planning is underpinned by a testing framework that drives constant improvement. And our platform partnerships enable whitelisting for technology beta testing and trialling industry firsts.
