When it comes to the ever-growing ad tech world, publishers can sometimes just shake their heads.
Jason Erdahl, who manages the digital marketing strategy for the Star-Tribune Media Company, a publication with 6 million online users, finds he must cobble together his own system from the many point products out there.

Without one centralized funnel it’s hard to choose what segment to use, and many of these spheres, where the audiences are, do not communicate.”
