We spend billions on digital advertising every year in hopes people click through to our websites. We report on CTR, CPC, and a dozen other acronyms. But no matter how pretty these numbers look, there's often a significant gap in achieving the metric that matters most: ROI.

Why? Many of the so-called consumers we think make up those numbers aren't real. On average, 21% of onsite traffic is invalid.

As bots become more intelligent and eat up our ad spend, it’s critical for marketers to know how to identify fake traffic and adjust campaigns accordingly. In this webinar, Tilman Pfeiffer, CEO and Co-Founder of Fraud0, joins our CIO Marcel Hollerbach to explore how you can optimize your marketing strategy for real buyers, and in turn, move your bottom line.

They’ll cover:

  • Data on the current bot landscape (2024 Invalid Traffic Report)
  • Tips for spotting fake traffic
  • Best practices for allocating ad spend toward high-performing channels
  • Strategies for optimizing ads to drive real people to your site for higher ROI
