Candid acquires PR and corporate communications agency Coopr

Candid, Coopr | September 06, 2021

Candid announces that communication agency Coopr is joining the Candid platform. The founders, Jody Koehler and Jos Govaart, will join as partners of Candid and at the same time will continue as the management of Coopr. With this latest acquisition, Candid is taking the next step in bringing together all marketing and communications disciplines into a fully integrated platform for advertisers

Coopr was founded in 2009, is based in Rotterdam and Antwerp and works for well-known clients such as adidas, Coca-Cola, Coolblue, LinkedIn and TikTok

Coopr will continue to operate as an autonomous agency under its own name within the Candid platform. "By joining the Candid platform, we retain our individuality, but we can immediately deepen and broaden our offer and at therefore offer our clients more integrated and other disciplines", say owners Jody Koehler and Jos Govaart. "In addition, the correlation between PR and other communication disciplines is more relevant than ever. Good brand ideas are most credibly propagated through PR efforts." By becoming part of the Candid platform, Coopr can now also shape its ambition with regard to further internationalization with a London branch in the not too distant future.

Ruud Wanck, CEO of Candid: "Coopr is an absolute premium brand in the field of PR and corporate communication. Their entrepreneurial spirit fits in perfectly with our platform strategy in which we bring together strong and distinctive agencies into an integrated platform. Within Candid, agencies retain their own culture and identity, but our clients always have direct access to our services across the full range of the marketing and communication profession. With the acquisition of Coopr, we now also have a leading agency within our platform in the – increasingly important – field of PR and corporate communication."

This expansion fits in seamlessly with Candid's ambitions to grow. Through acquisitions of  media agencies STROOM, M2Media and BBK media, digital agency Online Company and digital experience agency Havana Harbor, social media expert Daily Dialogues, advertising agency XXS, global brand design specialist Millford and marketing innovation agency Cogonez, Candid became the largest independent marketing and advertising platform in the Netherlands. More acquisitions will follow this year, both at home and abroad. "With the addition of a high-quality agency like Coopr, we are once again demonstrating the growth ambitions and the abilities of our platform," says Candid founder & chairman of the board Gérard Ghazarian.

About Candid platform:
We unify the creative and strategic powers of, amongst others, the media agencies Stroom and M2Media, the digital agencies Online Company and Havana Harbor, the social media expert Daily Dialogues, advertising agency XXS, marketing innovation agency Cogonez and brand identity specialist Millford.

Uber Launches Dedicated Advertising Division To Serve The World’s Biggest Brands

Uber | October 20, 2022

Uber Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: UBER) has formally launched its advertising division and unveiled Uber Journey Ads, an engaging way for brands to connect with consumers throughout the entire ride process. Journey Ads are the latest initiative from a dedicated team formed at Uber this year under advertising veteran Dr. Mark Grether, previously with Amazon Advertising, CEO of Sizmek, and Co-Founder of Xaxis. Leveraging Uber’s first-party data and insights across its mobility and delivery businesses presents the world’s biggest companies with compelling new surfaces and closed-loop attribution to reach Uber’s audience of 122 million monthly active users. With the addition of Journey Ads, Uber has created an engaging model that enables brands to share strategic campaigns across Uber’s mobility and delivery businesses, while connecting with consumers in brand-safe and captivating ways. Journey Ads place relevant brand content and offers in front of purchase-minded audiences as they transact throughout their journey – while waiting for their driver and during their trip. Over 40 marquee brands have already partnered with Uber to run Journey Ads including NBCUniversal, Heineken, and United Artists Releasing. With one-hundred percent share of voice during the entire trip, early results show that consumers were exposed to the ad content for approximately two minutes, resulting in two to six times the brand-performance lift compared to other benchmarks. Brands and advertisers can now partner with Uber on a variety of advertising options on the Uber and Uber Eats apps, and beyond: Journey Ads that capture consumers’ attention during their trip with ad units that drive purchases and brand awareness as they move with purpose. Prominently placed Sponsored Listings across Uber Eats to get brands ahead of the competition and capture the attention of ready-to-purchase consumers, with clients such as Shake Shack already seeing increased engagement, ROI and customer acquisition. Sponsored Emails that enable brands to promote exclusive offers to Uber and Uber Eats consumers through email delivery directly into their inboxes. Homepage Billboards that give brands the ability to prominently display messaging on the homepage of Uber Eats, the world’s most-downloaded food delivery app. Post-checkout Ads which allow brands to promote to purchase-minded consumers as they await updates on their order. Storefront Ads where CPG brands can enjoy prominent placement of their products at the top of a digital storefront. PepsiCo has been a pilot partner of storefront ad offerings. In Menu Ads that enable restaurants to feature their seasonal or specially priced menu item to entice consumers to take advantage of the promotional offer. Chipotle has been a pilot partner on this effort. Highly visible digital out-of-home Car Top Ads which enable brands to reach consumers based on location and time of day across top U.S. cities. Tablet Advertising pilot which will see strategic partners pilot in-car tablets in LA and SF. ”We have a global audience of valuable, purchase-minded consumers who, as part of our core business, tell us where they want to go and what they want to get,” said Dr. Grether, General Manager, for Uber’s advertising division. “While these consumers are making purchase decisions and waiting for their destination or delivery we can engage them with messages from brands that are relevant to their purchase journeys. And with 1.87 billion trips last quarter, that means we can connect advertisers to consumers on average five times per month across rides and delivery. ”We have a global audience of valuable, purchase-minded consumers who, as part of our core business, tell us where they want to go and what they want to get,” said Dr. Grether, General Manager, for Uber’s advertising division. “Through our advertising division, we can help leading brands grow their relationships with consumers by connecting them at a moment when a customer is uniquely attentive. By tapping into our mobility media network, our pilot campaigns have surpassed expectations in terms of brand lift, engagement, and other campaign goals. We’re eager to continue working with our partners to identify best-in-class offerings – such as in-car tablet advertising – that will ensure they’re engaging with captive and engaged audiences.” In addition to Uber’s unique ability to help brands connect with consumers at relevant points throughout their journeys or transactions, the company provides comprehensive reporting and analysis. By offering this unique view into consumer behavior, brands are able to fine-tune their understanding of their consumers and create more impactful campaigns. About Uber Uber’s mission is to create opportunity through movement. We started in 2010 to solve a simple problem: how do you get access to a ride at the touch of a button? More than 34 billion trips later, we’re building products to get people closer to where they want to be. By changing how people, food, and things move through cities, Uber is a platform that opens up the world to new possibilities.
