mediascale Reports Strong 2011 Growth
mediascale, one of Germany’s leading independent digital agencies, reported a gross income of €5.6m last year – an increase of 17 per cent compared to 2010. The billings for the same period rose 22 per cent from €59m to €72m.
mediascale uses its own cross-platform targeting tool NE.R.O, together with Plan.Net, to develop solutions for clients and agency partners. Julian Simon, managing director of mediascale, is bullish on future growth for mediascale:
Right now we are running about 35 per cent of all campaigns on NE.R.O. By the end of 2012, we want to increase that by 40 per cent or more. This targeting will aid not only in direct sales support but also image and brand communications. It’s more about planning for consumer-relevant criteria such as purchase decision stages, interests and attitudes of the user. There is great potential in targeting, especially for content and creative solutions. The system combines information from the user profile with the matching design, text, product or price for the dynamic creation of promotional materials. Thus, advertising effectiveness and efficiency of the campaigns increase significantly.
The company also opened a new office in Vienna last year to service the fast-growing Austrian market.
Jemm Goes All-In With AppNexus
Julia Smith, Global Communications Director at Jemm, is looking ahead:
By leveraging AppNexus’ technology platform, Jemm is able to deliver a strong proposition to buyers and sellers. We have moved away from a traditional ad network model and are now focused on working with other like-minded players in order to deliver a compelling offer for the publisher market.
Since migrating to the AppNexus platform, Jemm has seen click-through rates dramatically increase. In the first month alone, CTR tripled across campaigns delivered via the AppNexus platform. According to AppNexus’ proprietary reporting, the European market for RTB is growing rapidly, with an average of 25 billion advertising impressions served each month during Q4 2011 via the AppNexus platform. Over the last year the number of global impressions served via the AppNexus platform has increased by 859 per cent.ExchangeWire
