ViralGains and Peer39 by Sizmek Go Beyond Brand Safety and Partner to Deliver Highly Contextually Relevant Video Ads

Integration Improves Performance and Brand Favorability; Facilitates Two-Way Conversation Between Consumers and Advertisers

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Aug 23, 2017) - ViralGains, the industry's only video advertising journey platform, today announced a partnership with Peer39 by Sizmek, the largest people-based creative optimization and data activation platform delivering impressions that inspire, to further create authentic connections between consumers and brands. With the Peer39 integration, brands now have full benefits of the ViralGains platform in a contextually relevant environment. This incorporation will provide better results with both short-term performance and long-term brand favorability and perception.

"Brands have rightfully been highly concerned with their image in digital environments and ensuring that their video ads do not appear beside inappropriate content, so Brand Safety, a component of the ViralGains Video Platform is essential and a good first step -- but now brands need to think about context and ensure their ads are also appearing when and where a person is most receptive to a brand message," said Glenn Kiladis, VP of Product Management & Strategy, ViralGains. "For example, if an airline is advertising new travel destinations you shouldn't see those video ads appear next to a story about a new destination that was just ravaged by a hurricane. Context is a big part of driving meaningful and valuable connections between brands and people. We are incredibly excited about how our partnership with Peer39 is delivering advancements in contextual targeting to ensure that a brand message connects with engaged viewers and moves that person through a journey with that brand."

IPG Media Lab found that "73% of consumers targeted at the contextual level said the ad complements the video experience, compared to 55% targeted at the channel level and 49% targeted at the audience level." The combination of the ViralGains platform, which provides a two-way conversation with consumers, with Peer39's contextual targeting, allows for a more positive experience for consumers. With the help of Peer39's technology, which algorithmically analyzes the content of each page, ViralGains will be able to reach the most receptive audience at the most appropriate time, ensuring a resourceful form of advertising. This method of advertising allows consumers to receive pertinent content at the precise time they are engaging with particular subjects, demonstrating irrefutable legitimacy. Advertising in contextually relevant environments and protection from negative news will help marketers build their brands and avoid any pitfalls.

"As consumers take a more active role in how their data is used and shared, relevancy is returning to the spotlight in digital advertising," said John Douglas, Director of Product Strategy, Sizmek. "ViralGains combines their video ad journey platform with Peer39's contextual targeting to provide the best experience for consumers and the safest environments for brands."
