isocket makes direct ad sales suck less.
isocket builds web apps and the underlying pipes & platforms to make online ad sales easier. 70% of the money in online advertising is still bought and sold by hand, over cocktails, and through email and fax machines. Almost all of the technology and ad companies you've heard of deal with remnant "Class 2" ads - the equivalent of teeth whitening ads you see on the last page of a magazine.
isocket is changing the way premium inventory is bought and sold on a direct basis. Through our partnerships with Google/DFP and other ad servers, we have completely streamlined the process of executing direct sales orders. 1500 premium publishers now use Isocket to help increase their direct sales. And this is why isocket can help buyers source truly premium, Class 1 inventory-- the same inventory that's reserved for the sales team, and ahead of RTB and private exchanges. No other ad tech company can say this.
