    Foundry ads customers benefit from access to exclusive audiences that are a part of the Foundry ecosystem of over 300 million global records. Our data originates from digital and non-digital sources—including our intent data from Foundry’s owned and operated network of award-winning editorial sites, social platforms and sites across the public web, as well as from Foundry’s 16,000+ annual event attendees—to ensure precision targeting.

  • Who can access Foundry’s ad inventory?

    Ad space on Foundry’s owned and operated sites is exclusively available to Foundry customers. We do not make our inventory available on the public market, which enables us to keep customer ads and accompanying editorial content mutually relevant while ensuring high-quality visits.

  • What pricing options are available for Foundry ads?

    Foundry ads packages are charged on either a cost-per-click (CPC) or cost-per-viewable-impressions (vCPM) basis.

    For more information about Foundry Ads pricing, please contact our sales team.

  • What is standard frequency capping?

    Standard frequency capping limits the number of times that your ads are served to the same person. Frequency refers to the number of times a user sees ads over a set given time period. Foundry observes standard frequency capping best practices in all of our programs to ensure that ads remain relevant to viewers and prompt progressive action. Typically, we cap views of ads to 3 impressions per person per 8 hours (a standard workday for B2B), but this is subject to change depending on campaign objectives and KPIs.

  • What other Foundry programs/solutions can be supported by Foundry Ads?

    Our integrated model means that all of our solutions are designed to work together to drive better performance and results across channels. Foundry Ads can be supported by Foundry Intent, leveraged alongside Foundry demand generation campaigns and within Foundry’s ABM orchestration platform, and to support Foundry event and research initiatives.
