From the Founder

From the Founder

Throughout his career in the publishing industry, founder Nils Lind identified a critical need for a real-time data collection, normalization, and analysis tool for publishers. In response, he created an exceptional first-party data tracker that delivers unparalleled transparency, accuracy, and granularity across all revenue channels. Enthralled by his creation, Nils invited other publishers to experience its capabilities firsthand.

“In my early days, I realized that no software was measuring the user lifetime value for the website data that could help publishers improve the revenue earned from advertising. This made me curious to develop a product that could provide data optimization and personalization of data catered to each publisher’’

Nils quickly established a strong presence within the publishing community, becoming a well-respected industry expert. He went on to develop Yield Analytics, a holistic platform providing real-time, granular insights that empower global publishers to optimize performance across time zones while saving time on data collection, normalization, and troubleshooting.

‘’I am a data-driven person and having an engineering background, I wanted to become a disrupter and a game changer in the Ad Tech industry’’

Assertive Yield is committed to innovation and frequently launches new products, features, and integrations. For example, yield Optimizer offers publishers an AI-powered dynamic flooring solution, while Yield Manager is a versatile wrapper that facilitates the real-time testing of various hypotheses. Additionally, Traffic Shaping provides a unique solution for SSPs to reduce traffic costs, increase efficiency, and contribute to a greener advertising supply chain.

‘’It's time to publishers experience the power of real-time data, no code A/B testing and to have data transparency and control towards their own data, we empower them with our cutting edge tracker on page, which collects data from all revenue streams. Our machine learning algorithms predicts revenue in real-time from vendors with 96-99% accuracy. A real-time dashboard with the most granular layers of data to publisher slice and dice, so that they can find new ways to monetize based com no code A/B testing. of each publisher and also to provide unique features like real-time monitoring and alerts powered by AI which consider seasonality, so that they don’t lose out on data discrepancies. What we do is provide granular real-time data, optimize it and make assertive changes’’
