Superior Audiences: The First-Party Data Solution
The launch of TripleLift Audiences (TLA) in 2023 is more than a technological advancement; it’s a paradigm shift in how advertisers and publishers understand the power of first-party data. September marked the release of the industry’s first-ever large-scale test results showing that its recently launched targeting solution is effective across the web, including in cookie-constrained environments. With 28,600 domains already available, TLA has delivered a remarkable CPM increase of 26% for publishers and a 33% lower cost-per-click (CPC) for advertisers.
TripleLift’s commitment to solving cookie depreciation with first-party data extends beyond mere numbers; it’s about empowering partners with insights that fuel success.
Premium Quality: Direct Publishers Inventory
TripleLift’s pursuit of effectiveness in 2023 led to the onboarding of more than 200 new direct publisher partners in open web and CTV, a number that belies the quality and influence these partnerships bring to the advertising ecosystem.

With 72% of ad spend going to direct supply, dedication to ensuring a clean, transparent and trustworthy supply chain is paramount.

Effective Advertising: Powerful Creative Tech
Investment in formats in 2023 represents more than a financial commitment—it’s a pledge to redefine the creative landscape. In-feed, integrated ads, and branded video formats are not just advertisements; they are experiences carefully crafted to captivate audiences. Advertiser data underscores the efficacy and demonstrates statistically significant increases in revenue and CPMs for publishers.
Native advertising, as exemplified in Hearst and CafeMedia case studies, remains as a potent force in the industry, outperforming display, social, and competitors. The statistics tell a compelling story—42% more likely to capture consumer attention than banners, a 100% revenue boost for Hearst, and a 41% revenue surge for CafeMedia.
In CTV, TripleLift has not just entered the arena; they have become the game-changer. Partnerships with premium publishers like Samsung, DIRECTV, and Plex TV underscore the trust placed in TripleLift. With a 70% average increase in CTV premium publisher revenue YoY, Live Sports Lookbook, and an extensive library of 30+ packages, they are not just keeping pace but setting the tempo. The Adelaide partnership, launched in 2023, has elevated offerings and actively contributed to industry benchmarks. TripleLift inventory consistently outperformed Adelaide’s CTV benchmarks by 8%, a testament to the quality of TripleLift placements and the strength of this partnership.

TripleLift announced in April a commitment to Scope 1 and 2, and Scope 3 reductions to lower each by more than 50% by 2030. has always been at the forefront of some of the world’s most significant issues and is dedicated to going green and lowering emissions on a global scale. The company has fully committed to reducing absolute scopes 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 51.33% by 2030.

TripleLift also partnered with Patch, the platform scaling unified climate action, to offset carbon emissions by investing in the Clearloop Panola County Solar Project, a female and minority-led supplier. These internal efforts added to the client initiative, the GREEN Exchange Traded Deal, which gives advertisers another way to use their dollars to keep the planet green.
