NEW YORK – Ringleader Digital, the only third-party ad serving network for mobile devices, today announced that it will provide the mobile advertising platform for IAC Ad Solutions (IAC/AS) and its broad range of consumer brands. For Ringleader Digital, the IAC/AS relationship significantly increases its direct publisher network to include some of the most visited Web sites in North America. The deal also creates greater reach and return on investment for mobile advertising campaigns, the fastest growing segment of the advertising world.
“We’re committed to offering our brands and external marketers powerful advertising tools that leverage digital technology,” said Rich Stalzer, President of IAC/AS. “As the mobile ad market grows, and our audience reach extends, we want to make sure our inventory is filled by the right brands, and delivered to the right people. We believe our partnership with Ringleader Digital will help make this happen.”
Ringleader Digital’s next generation mobile advertising network allows advertising agencies and direct brands to easily extend their digital advertising initiatives to mobile. The company offers the only third-party mobile advertising service that delivers ads by device functionality, not just device type, among many other targeting parameters. This means that advertisers purchasing inventory on mobile sites in the IAC/AS network can be sure their ads are sent to their entire target demographic on any available mobile network. Advertisers are no longer limited by incompatible ad formats or costs associated with designing and serving up multiple ad formats.
“Our partnership with IAC/AS is yet another example of a world-class publisher endorsing our third-party approach to mobile advertising, which allows advertisers and agencies to efficiently and effectively deliver their online ads to mobile,” said Bob Walczak, CEO of Ringleader Digital. “Ringleader is pleased to be working with an interactive leader that positively impacts the way we live and communicate every day with digital technology.”
Additional inventory will be made available to advertisers as IAC Ad Solutions continues to roll out its brands’ mobile sites throughout the year.
