New York, NY, Dec. 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SociallyMined (SM) a leading data and analytics digital marketing company, today announced that HYPR has completed an acquisition of its company; terms of the deal were not disclosed. The acquisition will allow HYPR the ability to expand into new solution areas and shape how they plan, execute, analyze, and extend influencer marketing to large and small businesses alike, with a goal to help better optimize spend.

“More than 4 years ago, we set out on a tech-driven mission – to leverage data and analytics to understand key audiences to help with message delivery and amplification. Today, I’m proud of what we’ve achieved towards reaching that goal. We built a trusted brand that supported organizations, via proprietary algorithms, behind the scenes and helped our clients shape their narrative”, said Matt Anthes, co-founder and CEO of SM. “HYPR has been seen as a leading influencer platform, recently ranked the best influencer platform of 2019 by Digiday. It will be exciting to see how HYPR evolves and extends its market leading position.”

SM and HYPR have a history of collaboration and the team’s first crossed paths when the co-founders established the company about five years ago. “Immediately the first time we worked together we weren’t thinking anything about an acquisition, but things evolved and we determined this would help us become the best in class,” stated Gil Eyal CEO HYPR. In addition to his other ventures, SM co-founder and President Steve Zeitchik will remain with HYPR in an official capacity. Additionally, SM co-founder and CEO Matt Anthes has joined the non-profit mission focused Hatcher Group’s executive team as VP of Digital Communications, where he will lead and grow the firm’s digital practice. Anthes, however, will serve as an advisor to HYPR on political and advocacy issues.

HYPR pioneered the influencer marketing category by delivering an innovative, affordable and engaging influencer platform directly to clients but continues to evolve. Steve Zeitchik will be at the forefront of HYPR’s new SMB product, where he will be leading product rollout and business development efforts. “I’m honored to be working with Gil and his team to help launch their solution to the SMB market”, stated Steve Zeitchik, SM co-founder and President. “The new package delivers the advanced tech of HYPR but streamlined for small businesses without adding significant costs to a company’s influencer campaign.” The transaction closed in early December and HYPR is positioned to deliver the most comprehensive influencer marketing platform on the market, sold at the lowest cost.
