Video e-commerce advertising platform Blingby partners with KiwiTech

Washington DC, 2017-Mar-10 — /EPR Advertising News/ — KiwiTech, LLC, a startup accelerator and technology services company, has announced a strategic partnership with Blingby, an innovative digital advertising and marketing platform. Blingby users watch, buy, book or rent the styles and places that inspire them. However, Blingby is not only about fashion, lifestyle, or travel; it is adaptable to many different industries. Third-parties can also license and customize Blingby’s (bbStream) technology for use ontheir platform, enhancing their value proposition.

A truly groundbreaking innovation is Blingby’s bbstream, which can be integrated natively into content streams by producers CDNs and content distributors into their video content. Why should you care?

Imagine watching a YouTube video and moving your cursor above a person’s jacket. From that simple action, a drop-down appears with information on the jacket, through which a user can click through to purchase. Or what if PM Justin Trudeau is giving a presentation in front of the 4 Seasons in Montreal, move your cursor to the hotel and information on room rentals, etc., drop down from which you can click and execute a transaction.

It’s audience-agnostic, non-intrusive advertising that virtually eliminates the “ready fire aim” approach used by advertisers, replacing it with pinpoint accurate audience segmentation.

Blingby, founded in 2014, is a video content delivery and e-commerce marketing and advertising platform, engaging users in 185 countries. Blingby empowers marketers by providing them with a powerful, engaging and advert-less platform where the video and the proprietary bbStream experience drives user interaction. Blingby technology supports native and live streaming. Blingby is currently available on the web at www.blingby.com and on third-party websites, social media and as an Android or iOS mobile app through Google Play and iTunes.

“Blingby is a paradigm shift in marketing and advertising by transforming content into an informative, ’advert-less’ engagement applicable to different industries. We are excited to form this strategic alliance to help further transform Blingby’s unique platform,” said Rakesh Gupta, Founder and CEO, KiwiTech. “We’re committed to bringing the best of KiwiTech to help Blingby meet their business goals.”

“People’s tolerance to pushy and non-relevant and non-engaging marketing is rapidly diminishing. We built Blingby to solve this problem. We deliver a continuously-evolving, fully-immersive visual digital experience with high user engagement and conversion rates,” said Marcia Favale, President, CEO and Co-Founder of Blingby. “KiwiTech, with an extensive experience in the technology space, will augment our technology delivery to continuously reshape user engagement in digital media, helping us further deliver on the Blingby vision.”

KiwiTech brings a deep understanding of developed and emerging technologies such as virtual reality, augmented reality, artificial intelligence and visual recognition. “As part of this partnership, KiwiTech will provide exclusive technology capabilities to Blingby,” said Robert Stanicic, COO and Co-Founder of Blingby.

EconomyPR.com Launches Press Release Writing Service for Entrepreneurs

Streamlined and Affordable; Do-It-Yourself PR for Amazon Sellers, Startups and Crowd-Funders

Cleveland, Ohio, June 26, 2015 — /EPR ADVERTISING NEWS/ — EconomyPR.com today announced the launch of its affordable, streamlined “do-it-yourself” public relations services for entrepreneurs, Amazon Sellers and crowd-funders today. Bridging the gap between random “gig economy” freelancers and premium agencies, EconomyPR.com has demonstrated in beta that it can deliver professionally-written press releases, blogs and media pitches at a fraction of the fees charged by agencies and publicists. The company’s do-it-yourself model enables clients who might not have even considered PR to conduct effective media campaigns.

“It’s time for the PR business to catch up with changes in the news industry as well as shifts in the way that creative work gets done,” said Hugh Taylor, the CEO and founder of EconomyPR.com. “Talented freelancers are available to work economically by the project. Entrepreneurial clients are taking media relations into their own hands. Journalists and bloggers are reachable directly and publishing online. The old barriers between a PR client and the media are disappearing. We’re leading the way in disrupting a field that’s ripe for change.”

Taylor, who has managed public relations in the Fortune 500 as well as for several venture-backed startups, founded EconomyPR.com after observing a disconnect in the modern public relations market. While many traditional PR firms require monthly retainers that can reach tens of thousands of dollars, the actual writing of a press release — which is all that some clients want — could be performed by freelancers for well under one hundred dollars. The proliferation of gig economy freelance sites such as Fiverr and PeoplePerHour has given public relations customers access to thousands of low-cost writing resources. However, quality and delivery can be unpredictable on these sites.

The challenge was to create an end product that met the client’s expectations while preserving the value of the gig economy. EconomyPR.com performs an essential editorial function, marshaling the resources of a skilled, curated freelancer base to enable low-cost press release writing for clients while enforcing professional standards for quality and message impact. The company also helps clients repurpose their press releases, adapting them into articles, blog posts and media pitch emails. In pre-launch beta, EconomyPR.com has helped dozens of entrepreneurs get their news picked up in the media.

EconomyPR.com’s basic offering is a 300 to 400 word press release for $25. Standard delivery is three business days. Extra charges apply for rush services and add-ons, such as blog post adaption and email pitches.

Student Launches the Most Wanted Website with a $1,333,000 Raising Idea

A 21-year-old Latvian student launched an extraordinary website and is hoping to achieve financial freedom and stability by selling decoration blocks on his ‘The Most Wanted Website’ in a form of ad spaces. He hopes to become a millionaire in the process and make a documentary series about how his life changed and what he spent his money on.

Matiss Bartulis (Matthew in English) set up themostwantedwebsite.com in order to achieve his goal of $1,333,000 and 40 cents after he made a list for a normal life where he calculated all the expenses for the next 79 years till his 100th birthday and decided to go for it. He has published his list on the website.

He accented that his life expenses are calculated for a truly normal average life without exaggerations and excessive luxury. “For instance – money for bills, a haircut every three months, presents to relatives, new shoes every two years or ordering pizza home once a month” he added.

Despite the fact that the website has been online only for two weeks, Matiss has already made $1080, although he admits that one of the first ad spaces was sold to his godfather who owns an international furniture company.

“I knew Matiss would badger me about it, but if it attracts people’s attention, then it’s worth having my advertisement and imprints on there,” Mr. Dainis, 39, commented.

Matiss says that people can use ad spaces they purchase to display their image or logo, headline, advertisement and have a link to their own website. “A minimized version of the image will appear on the decoration block as a design element of my website,” he explains,”this is a chance to design the Internet Monument – a virtual significant place that will never change once finished.”

Finally, Classifieds And Auctions Joined Together In One Place

This is what we’ve all been waiting for. A free classifieds site that offers free auctions too! And to top it all off it’s actually owned and operated in the USA.

This is a relatively bold new idea in the internet industry. Classifieds websites are an extremely competitive area online and auctions are equally competitive if not more so. The idea of bringing these two together is really not a large stretch as they often provide similar items and services.

The sites individual traffic is the biggest factor in, not only the users success, but also the success of any website itself. To share traffic between individuals seeking to buy or sell in classifieds and those looking for auctions seems to be a great way to expand content and reach into even larger areas. The additional traffic gives all ads and auctions additional exposure, increasing the chance of a sale.

Yacads.com offers both free classifieds and no fee auctions. It includes Google maps on the listing’s details page of every ad to assist in locateing the items. Site users, like on most sites, can browse categories or search for items. One extra that is often left out of classifieds sites that assist with large items or individuals with limited resources is the proximity zip code search.

This is an extremely “handy” feature. It allows the user to enter their zip code, select a distance f r o m that zip code, and filter all the ads that are not within that specified distance. This helps make the site more “farmer friendly” in a search for some cheap local nearby livestock. It also allows yard sale shoppers to filter all the listed yard sales within a certain distance, then they can print the Google map. Need directions instead of just a map? Click the “Map-This-Item” link, and a Mapquest window will pop up with a form that is already filled out, except for your location. Just enter your location and click “go”. You should give this thing a quick look when you’re not busy. It’s not huge yet, but at it’s current rate of growth it won’t take long.

rVue Online Digital Out-of-Home Media Planner Launched

We’ve all seen it. Advertisers either spending days on DOOH media planning or avoiding the media altogether with the same objections: fragmentation within the industry, lack of reach and the time it takes to create a strategic media plan. From emails and phone tag, to spreadsheets and middlemen, sophisticated ad planners found their time consumed by the most mundane portion of the planning process.

On the other side of the equation, networks were reluctant to allocate inventory to third parties, slash pricing or pay higher commissions, instead wishing to maintain some control over their inventory valuation and commoditization.

Times have changed. DOOH has grown and evolved while advertisers are turning away from traditional media and looking for innovative digital solutions. The rVue, Inc. executive and technology team has been immersed in the Digital Out-of-Home for years, consistently building solutions that drive efficiency and ease of use.

rVue, Inc. announced the launch of its web-based DOOH media planner, which blankets the industry by connecting participating networks with ad agencies and advertisers looking to advertise on digital signage screens and billboards. The open and free-to-use rVue Media Planner enables agencies to easily create a DOOH media plan, saving them precious planning time and expanding their DOOH reach by introducing them to participating networks they may not currently have on their radar.

rVue’s “social networking meets search engine” approach connects advertisers with networks that fit their search criteria. There is no cost or obligation for advertisers, agencies or networks to use the media planner and no inventory allocation or aggregation is required. Networks are, however, encouraged to put their “best foot forward” by maintaining their profile with accurate and current data, such as audience demographics, impressions and third party studies as well as location, content and technology specifications and other relevant information. This becomes the basis by which agencies evaluate networks for their media plan. Networks always maintain the “final say” by being able to accept or reject any offer made to them.

The media planner is just one of the core software offerings within rVue’s suite of technology. Currently, rVue has enrolled more than 35 networks representing over 157,000 touchpoints in major DMAs in the United States and Canada, with several European networks becoming available in early 2010. As part of a strategic relationship, BroadSign Open’s more than 230 digital signage networks in 25 countries are automatically eligible to adopt the system.

The Already Powerful MySign.TV Digital Signage Software Solution Has Been Enhanced With New Features

MySignTV has published a new version of its digital signage software, as the company has already been offering services for digital dynamic network systems. With a considerable amount of niche market experience and a strong background, the company has managed to expand the features of the MySignTV digital signage product beyond all expectations and at this time it is considered to have an excellent price versus quality ratio. Currently, the latest update offers increased usability because of a redesigned graphical user interface as well as new features that allow complete and transparent management of all digital signage content display on a network.

As digital signage is a form of electronic display that supports various forms of content, such an implementation requires a software solution that can help in properly creating, displaying and managing the digital signage network. In the new version of MySignTV, there are three components that help its users to create and manage individual advertising content. The components are MySignTV Player, MySignTV Designer and MySignTV Content Scheduling & Management component, forming a software bundle that offers a complete digital signage software solution.

“Our software package offers complete scalability for digital signage network owners as their infrastructure can always expand without any problem in terms of management and display capabilities, since we offer the ability to purchase one or more individual software components as per the very custom requirements of each digital signage project”, said Mr. Adly Oren, Senior Sales Manager, MySignTV. “There is no comparable solution on the market at this price point” is how Mr. Adly Oren describes the latest MySignTV digital signage software version.

Beyond improved and more scalable software elements, MySignTV has also managed to build a unique reseller program that allows digital signage professionals from all around the world to signup as part of the MySignTV partnership network and start earning as much as they wish, based on a well designed overpricing strategy. As MySignTV does not actually sell directly to its customers, there is a considerable potential of revenue for all major geographic partners, since most customer leads registered by MySignTV are actively being directed to such regional resellers.

For additional information regarding MySignTV digital signage software (pdf file), as well as the reseller program (pdf file) available, feel free to visit www.mysign.tv.

New Start Up Gives Smes A Cost Effective Tool To Evaluate Online Expenditure

Smart Digital Spending, a New York start-up launched today, offers a new approach to analyzing online advertising which could save firms thousands of dollars each year. Smart Digital Spending provides written, audio and video instructions on how to analyze online campaigns using data analysis techniques in order to make simple yet effective media optimization decisions. Offering data analysis advertising tutorials is the brainchild of online marketing analyst Eric Melchor.

New Start Up Gives Smes A Cost Effective Tool To Evaluate Online Expenditure

Paula Lynn commented, “I think there is a real need for these tutorials. Marketing data analysis is usually seen as really complex and hard to implement, but these guides explain how advertisers can incorporate online media measurement into their media planning strategy very easily. There may be other options out there, but simplicity doesn’t seem to be what is happening with other companies offering their services”.

According to Eric Melchor, “The natural instinct of an internet marketing analyst with no media planning experience is to track and measure as many metrics as possible in order to learn about the campaign at maximum granularity. This results in a virtually endless amount of wasted time since this won’t change the way advertisers plan future media buys nor generate a better ROI on advertising dollars spent.

Media planners and buyers who are capable of performing proven data analysis techniques on their own are much more likely to focus on what is actionable, identify areas where to minimize costs and implement optimization decisions based off strategic findings that will enhance campaign performance.”

Firms of any kind can purchase and download these tutorials that are designed for paid search, online display and mobile marketing at www.smartdigitalspending.com. Firms can even choose to pay a low monthly subscription that gives them access to all tutorials for free and are able to have Eric Melchor as an available resource to call on for matters relating to measuring digital advertising.

In addition, rVue’s strategic alliance with BroadSign, a leading provider of software solutions for digital signage, creates unique opportunities for any of the 160-plus BroadSign-powered networks who can now benefit from rVue’s web platform.

While rVue is often associated with other industry aggregators, this full-cycle media exchange is unique in that it empowers media planners and advertisers with all the tools necessary to plan media campaigns, place network advertising, upload and distribute high-quality content and monitor their reach, simplifying the process of buying digital out-of-home.

“Partnering with networks like Adverto TV only enhances the advertising opportunities available to media planners and ad agencies through rVue,” says Jason Kates, CEO and founder of Argo Digital Solutions. “Adverto TV caters to our advertisers with state-of-the-art, strategically-placed LCD screens that optimize the consumer’s overall in-store experience in some of the most desirable and high-trafficked venues available.”

Theresa Fletcher Joins Argo Digital Solutions As Chief Revenue Officer

Argo Digital Solutions (Argo) announced today that it has appointed Theresa Fletcher as the company’s Chief Revenue Officer. Fletcher was selected for this position based on her notable track record of success in high-level business strategy, driving sales, market share and bottom line profitability for Fortune 100 media companies.

In her previous position as Area Vice President/General Manager of Comcast Spotlight, Fletcher was responsible for market consolidation and reorganization within the 17th largest DMA in the country and, in turn, increased the company’s revenue over 500% to $150 million. Prior to Comcast, Fletcher’s career included key executive positions within Continental Cablevision, Media One and AT&T where she was largely responsible for turnaround management following the company’s mergers and acquisitions, cross-functional collaboration, profit and loss management, business reengineering, strategic planning and competitor analysis – all leading to accelerated growth and profitability.

Fletcher was tapped by Argo for her vast array of experience in developing sales strategies that compliment multi-platform initiatives such as online, television, videos on demand, addressable advertising and Hispanic advertising. She has earned a stellar reputation for taking challenging opportunities and fragmentation and turning them into highly profitable enterprises with integrity. The appointment of Fletcher to this position marks another jewel in Argo’s management crown as the company has strategically expanded its executive team to include an impressive list of technology, financial, media and marketing leaders.

In her new position, Fletcher’s first area of focus is to further accelerate the current momentum and success of rVue, the company’s addressable advertising exchange for digital out-of-home (DOOH). Launched in its latest generation a few months ago, rVue has been enrolling networks almost daily. Originally developed and utilized by Argo’s team of engineers to manage and distribute high quality content within large and complex networks under the company’s control, today’s rVue is built for with the DOOH and advertising industries in mind. It connects fragmented networks and advertisers, simplifies media planning and makes the distribution of high quality content distribution easy and powerful. Unlike media aggregators, Argo’s rVue model provides a ‘pay-per-click’ approach, reminiscent of Google and eBay, which empowers DOOH networks and advertising agencies to take greater control and be rewarded. Through rVue, advertisers can complete a media buy, deliver high quality content and obtain results easily, while adding one of the fastest growing new medias to their media toolbox.

Hercules Networks’ ACMs Now Available To Major Advertising Agencies Through rVue

Hercules Networks, which offers Automated Charging Machines (ACM’s) for cell phones, PDAs and mp3s in theme parks, malls and bars in top DMAs throughout the country has recently enrolled its expansive digital signage network into rVue, Argo Digital Solutions’ addressable advertising exchange for digital out-of-home (DOOH).

ACM’s offer convenience to those on-the go, as well as a highly targeted advertising medium for the major advertisers trying to reach them where they make purchasing decisions. Projecting a growth of more than double its number of screens by 2009, Hercules’ CEO Paul King’s initial attraction to Argo’s rVue exchange was it’s simplicity and automated ‘pay-per-click’ approach to DOOH, reminiscent of Google and eBay’s models for the Internet.

“It’s an incredible challenge to engage an audience for any length of time through advertising, but ACM’s can do just that by providing a 10 minute captive audience while customers wait for their phone, PDA or Ipod to charge,” said Paul King, CEO of Hercules Networks. “The partnership with rVue will dramatically increase our ability to offer a simple and integrated out-of-home solution to advertisers and media planners.”

Last month, Argo launched an enhanced, next generation version of rVue, which connects digital out-of-home networks with a growing list of advertising agencies and media planners looking to reach targeted consumers while they are on-the-go and near the time of purchase. This development has generated a second quarter, six figure digital media buy through the platform by a leading provider and innovator of eye care services, with an anticipated result of more than 9 million impressions. rVue’s automated approach is unique to the industry, has reduced the average time it takes to create a media plan in DOOH and allows advertisers and outlets to control the process.

“This is truly a pioneering and long-awaited technology that has come alive thanks to Hercules Networks,” notes Jason Kates, CEO of Argo Digital Solutions. “We now have the ability to give our advertisers the opportunity to utilize customized brand content and cutting-edge technology to drive sales with access to a more captive audience than ever before. ACMs are a huge step in the development of DOOH.”

NY-based Hercules Networks produces and distributes Automated Charging Machines (or ACM’s) that charge consumers cell phones while they are on-the-go. A rapid, 10-minute charge gives the consumer a quick boost of juice, and gives advertisers a 10-minute captive audience. ACM’s can charge up to 18 devices simultaneously by providing the most common charging tips on every ACM. The company recently installed charging stations at the Boston Celtics Stadium through a partnership with ATT, and is also negotiating to put ACM’s in Las Vegas casinos.

Integration Connects Digital Signage Inventory from BroadSign-Powered Networks with Advertising Space and Content within RMS Networks’ rVue Exchange

BroadSign International, Inc., a worldwide provider of “Software as a Service” (SaaS) solutions for managing digital signage networks, and RMS Networks, Inc., the leading digital marketing and technology solutions agency, have joined forces to offer advertisers easier-to-buy digital out-of-home media.

The integration has become possible due to the new open-standard cross-network media buying platform – BroadSign Open, scheduled for release in early 2009. The two companies have collaborated to connect BroadSign Open with rVue – a digital signage media-planning tool developed for the DOOH industry and used by RMS Networks. rVue’s addressable advertising exchange takes a ‘Google AdWords’ approach and applies it to the DOOH industry. RMS’ rVue exchange is a web-based application that enables advertisers to find and bid on digital out-of-home properties across multiple networks.

Thanks to the rVue/BroadSign Open collaboration, over 165 DOOH networks that run on BroadSign’s software can now add their inventory to RMS’ media planning platform, thus becoming part of the larger-scale media buys they didn’t have access to before.

BroadSign Open will grant rVue users access to its combined network media space to enable advertisers to target and execute digital signage campaigns across BroadSign-powered networks.

“Our relationship with RMS Networks gives our networks an opportunity to be seen by planners and advertisers via a unified interface and simplifies the process of buying digital out-of-home,” said Brian Dusho, President & Chief Strategy Officer of BroadSign International. “Coupling rVue with BroadSign Open brings together the best of two worlds: mass reach and micro targeting.”

“BroadSign is an established, worldwide provider of campaign fulfillment workflow for the industry with an impressive group of networks,” notes Jason Kates, Founder, President and CEO of RMS Networks. “The integration of our respective technologies is designed to further enable advertising agencies to easily plan and buy OOH media campaigns and measure their effectiveness.”

The rVue Ad platform also offers greater accountability and relevancy in advertising. With rVue’s innovative targeting tools and auction-based pricing system, advertisers can find the right context and audience for their advertising message, only pay for impressions delivered to their ads, and receive digital reporting within 24 hours.

Additionally, The Component Group, an Omnicom agency has endorsed rVue from the start and is very optimistic about this announcement. “We collaborated with RMS Networks over the last year to integrate what the agencies are looking for – a dashboard approach to segregate the digital out of home opportunities and allow an efficient buy to take place”, said Bob Chimbel, CEO of the Component Group. “The incorporation of rVue into BroadSign’s reach is game-changing. A platform of this scope now allows us to access digital Out-of-Home outlets in a way that was not previously available.”
