SOCIAL MEDIA ADVERTISING
SpringServe | March 03, 2022
SpringServe, the leading ad serving platform for connected TV (CTV), today announced a strategic collaboration with SXSW, to power inventory on their video on demand content, both online and on the SXSW TV apps.

SXSW will leverage SpringServe to ensure high-quality in-app video advertising experiences for attendees.

ADVERTISER CAMPAIGN MANAGEMENT
Boatim | January 28, 2021
Boatim Inc., an data-driven, online marketplace center for buying and selling boats and yachts anywhere on the world, presents its new digital brand advertising campaign. The campaign addresses to the worldwide boating community as a component of the progressing boating boom, initially catalyzed by the pandemic a year ago. Demand keeps on developing this year as basic requirements remain: COVID-free activities that give a break from stress, and all things being equal, give fun and exercise, such as being out on the water—particularly in the upcoming year's summer season 2021.
"Boating has always meant freedom and independence. But especially now for first-time boat buyers, who'd never considered buying a boat. A new generation of captains are now getting immersed in the seafaring culture", says Patrick Burkert, Boatim's Chief Marketing Officer. Boatim will publish the campaign in February on all major digital advertising networks, as well as social media marketing channels including YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook. For the US and European rollout, the brand will initially run on a wide array of both established and new social networks and media channels, with a variety of programming, subsequently optimizing to those that perform the best.
PubMatic | November 24, 2021
PubMatic, a sell-side platform that delivers superior outcomes for digital advertising, announced that Verve Group, a global consumer-first advertising suite, and Scream Malmo, a Swedish full-service media agency, have successfully employed the ID5 ID within PubMatic to reach and effectively target new consumers on mobile web and desktop at scale.
The deprecation of third-party cookies and changes to Apple’s IDFA require that media buyers find new audience targeting and measurement solutions – including in markets such as Sweden where Safari commands a 54% market share in mobile traffic.
Verve Group and Scream Malmo partnered with PubMatic to reinvent mobile web addressability for a leading weight loss brand. A/B tests were conducted via private marketplace (PMP) deals on mobile web (iOS & Android) and desktop. The initial phase of the test saw campaigns running without applying an identity solution and in the second phase ID5’s ID was activated via PubMatic.
The results showed a 21% increase in reach across all browser types when the ID5 ID was applied. Furthermore, Verve Group and Scream saw a 30% increase in reach on mobile web, rising to 90% on iOS inventory.
The market is ripe for different identity solutions which will play a big role in the future of addressability to help advertisers achieve their campaign goals. We’re delighted with the results we have achieved with PubMatic and ID5 and look forward to leveraging the expanded audience addressability capabilities to maximise reach and performance for our clients as part of our vision to provide privacy-first advertising solutions”.
Carl Liverstam, Managing Director Nordics at Platform161 (Now Part of Verve Group).
“Incorporating ID5 ID into our campaign planning and testing strategy has allowed us to bring new benefits to each of our clients with audience addressability at the core. This ensures that we are not only bidding on the most optimal impressions, but that we are also bidding as efficiently and effectively as possible”, said Carla Lind Andersson, Media Manager at Scream.
“The results clearly demonstrate the added value that next-generation identifiers deliver. Through tests like these with PubMatic and Verve Group enable marketers to maximise reach in the post-cookie era”, said Morwenna Beales, VP Global Strategic Partnerships at ID5.
“Evolved audience targeting approaches are valued by media buyers as they provide a launchpad for greater addressability in a cookieless world. Targeting on the SSP side enables media buyers to take advantage of available audience addressability solutions like ID, contextual, and third-party data targeting. At PubMatic, we empower advertisers to make more informed decisions, gain significant efficiencies, and create long-term alternatives to cookie-based targeting”, said Jonas Söderqvist, Regional Director, Northern Europe at PubMatic.
