Fifty-two years on from Dylan's biggest hit song, industry bible AdWeek reports that advertisers, brands and social influencers are now competing for the greater good of sponsored content.

ROI Influencer Media, in partnership with multiple programmatic platforms like Rubicon Project, PubMatic, OpenX and Google's DoubleClick Ad Exchange, is making that process of sponsored ads a lot more simple.

According to Seth Kean, CEO of ROI Influencer Media, the social influencer market is basically in it's Wild West stage. Says Kean: "It reminds me of [the days] before video, digital or mobile advertising became standardised.

Kean predicts that when buying programmatic advertising packages, bundles of influencers who have signed with ROI will appear as options for buyers.

Enthuses Jay Sampson, Rubicon Project's head of strategic partnerships: "For the first time, premium brand and advertising agency partners on our platform can access native social content across all major social media platforms programmatically."
