Digital Programmatic Sales for Publishers

Sell the Same Premium Inventory as Major Agencies

Ad Sales Genius helps you clear two of the biggest hurdles media companies face when trying to compete for digital programmatic ad sales:

No huge minimum ad spend to access premium inventory on the web, on streaming platforms, and across iOS/Android devices. Ad Sales Genius grants you access to the same premium inventory for a fraction of the spend.

No learning curve. From setting up the types of digital programmatic campaigns you offer, to packaging products in ways that maximize profit, we coach your sales reps to start selling digital advertising as effectively as possible.

Plan & publish Your Print Products

Powerful Visual Flat Planning

Drag and drop finished ads into your visual flat plan, complete with support for editorial, all within our easy-to-use magazine management software. Changes between inDesign and your Ad Sales Genius flat plan sync automatically, ensuring your works-in-progress are always up to date.

Complete Two-Way Adobe inDesign Integration​

Communication goes both ways between Adobe inDesign and Ad Sales Genius, which means any changes made to design assets within InDesign automatically translate to Ad Sales Genius. That’s one less step for your designers that also ensures your products are always accurate and up-to-date.

Automated Preflighting

Confirm that your design work will translate to print perfectly with automated preflighting checks within Ad Sales Genius. Not only can you make automatic corrections, but preflighted ads are marked clearly in your asset library to eliminate confusion if they are to be used again.

Simple Revisions and Approvals

Integrated Ad Proofing & Review

Back-and-forth during the advertiser review process can clog email boxes and lead to delays in production. With our integrated proofing and review process, your advertisers can approve or comment their changes directly within Ad Sales Genius.


Automatic Tear Sheets

If tear sheets are taking up too much of your time, you aren’t using the right magazine management software. Ad Sales Genius simplifies the process of billing clients by automatically including a copy of the ad and the page the ad is placed on.
