The Technology Inside
The Enhanced Exchange

Sharethrough’s technology is designed to enhance any creative asset and make it better fit each site and placement.  For a banner or video asset, we add a headline that matches the rest of the site to help the ad fit in and perform better.  

How it works & makes us different

TrueTemplate™ Technology

TrueTemplate technology examines the fonts, sizes and colors of surrounding content and crafts a customized template that better fits each site. High volume templates undergo human review to increase performance and nativeness.

Proven Industry Leadership

Sharethrough’s process has always been based on hypothesis, experiments, data, and iteration coupled with a human-centered focus in design, sales, and customer care.  The net result is a unique philosophy both in how we build our products and how we approach the market.  Over the years this approach has led us to be the industry in many pioneering ways.

Neuroscience of Native Ads

Early on, we were interested in answering the question of how human brains perceive native ads, and the results were enlightening.  It turns out human brains react to native ads very differently than traditional display ads, primarily because reading the headline is a very different mental process than looking at an image - learn more about these fascinating results here.

Thought and Technology Leaders

Sharethrough was there are the start - launching nativeadvertising.com, chairing the IAB comittee on native, and running the first native-specific conferences.  Later, when native was ready for programmatic, Sharethrough helped write the standards that brought native into the programmatic world.  Lately, Sharethrough’s standards-setting efforts have extended beyond native into fraud and other areas.

client services & support

Rooted in our values of Action, Curiousity, Purpose and Transparency, we have a team of experts available to provide support to both our current and prospective clients and partners.  We believe good customer relationships form long before the actual sale and so we’ll gladly educate and help out any clients wherever we can.
