Ad revenue from programmatic advertising can vary depending on season due to changes in consumer behavior and the demand for advertising space during different times of the year. For example, leading up to the holiday season, there may be an increase in demand for advertising space as retailers ramp up their holiday marketing campaigns, but actually decreases during the holidays.
Quarter-to-quarter, ad revenue can also fluctuate greatly depending on various factors such as major events, global economic trends, and shifts in consumer spending patterns.
Ad revenue in Q1 is usually lower due to budget constraints and a slowdown in consumer spending after the holiday season. Advertisers may also be more cautious about spending after the holidays, leading to lower demand for advertising space.
Ad revenue in Q2 may pick up as advertisers gear up for the summer season and consumer spending increases. This can lead to an increase in demand for advertising space, resulting in higher ad prices and revenue for publishers.
Ad revenue in Q3 is impacted by major events such as summer holidays, sporting events, and back-to-school shopping. Revenue usually increases during the period leading up to summer, but actually decreases during the vacation season and holidays.
Ad revenue in Q4 often increases significantly as retailers ramp up their holiday marketing campaigns and consumer spending peaks. This increase in demand for advertising space can result in higher ad prices and revenue for publishers.
