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.

Clickbooth Releases Study on How to Increase Conversions with Mothers Ages 35 to 55

The female consumer hold tremendous spending power – on average, around 75,000 per year – and women ages 35 to 55 make up the largest group of consumers online. Affiliate network Clickbooth tackled identifying the groups within this valuable demographic in part one of its “An Inside Look at Marketing to Women Ages 35 to 55” study, and now part two aims to teach Clickbooth clients how to convert the mothers within this group into customers. Author Sara Anderson pulls from several other studies to complete her own, and the results will prove valuable for those who create affiliate CPA network campaigns.

Anderson surmised the following about the individual mothers within this demographic: “She is strategic in her decisions, compares products, and actually uses her friend’s (or trusted online mommy networkers) opinions as the determining factor in whether she will buy into a product or not.”

She tells Clickbooth clients that when creating affiliate network campaigns, they must treat these consumers with respect and have patience with a sometimes longer sales process. If they do, their campaigns will be successful. She goes on to break down part two of the study into two essential actions for Clickbooth’s affiliate CPA network clients:

Spark a mother’s interest – Use empathetic ad copy that creates an emotional connection and that is family-oriented. Use photos of a mother with her children. Anderson quotes a recent Facebook study that showed that mothers relate best to photos of mothers with their children, next to mothers laughing, and finally, mothers multi-tasking. Landing pages in an affiliate network campaign should be simple in design, and the call to action should be family friendly.

Increase her desire and trust in the product – Quickly show a mother that other mothers approve of the product, through videos, surveys, product reviews and customer testimonials.

Close the sale with an easy shopping cart experience – There should be no confusion when filling out an order form. A clumsy shopping cart experience can destroy the trust that the affiliate CPA network campaign has built.

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.

Bigmouthmedia Wins Travolution Award for Best Use of SEO

Bigmouthmedia’s innovative collaboration with luxury travel operator Kuoni has seen the agency win the prestigious Travolution Award for the best search marketing campaign of the year.

Walking away with the coveted prize for Best Use of search engine optimisation, Europe’s largest independent digital marketing agency was recognised for an international campaign that saw Kuoni enjoy a 100% increase in number one search rankings while achieving outstanding ROI. Praising the strategy for delivering a 104% increase in total unique search visitors within a year, a panel of experts singled out the project as an example of industry best practice.

“This was a fantastic demonstration of when SEO and user experience work hand-in-hand to create a powerful new proposition, especially with Kuoni’s new i-Travel proposition. The agency met all the client’s objectives and produced premium results with a clear return-of-investment,” said a panel spokesman.

Beating stiff competition from ambergreen, iCrossing, Latitude and Greenlight, bigmouthmedia’s campaign was selected for its implementation of constantly evolving SEO strategies including the use of social media releases and the exploitation of synergies between Kuoni’s PPC strategy and its search marketing activities.

“Our campaign was aimed at increasing search engine visibility, traffic and revenues, and I’m delighted that its success on all fronts has been rewarded with such a prestigious honour. Our internal staff have worked closely with bigmouthmedia throughout to deliver a particularly complex strategy, and this award is a richly deserved accolade for all involved,” said Joanna Edmunds, Kuoni’s Commercial Director.

Matt Rooke, eBusiness Director at Kuoni, added: “The statistics speak for themselves. Results like the 69% increase in organic search engine traffic we delivered over a single year have helped us achieve outstanding ROI on this campaign, while our use of innovative link building activities to increase rankings for targeted keyphrases and video listings has seen us earn first page rankings in Google for over 90% of our targeted keywords”

The Travolution prize rounds off a successful week for bigmouthmedia on the awards circuit. On Tuesday September 29th, the agency learned that it has also been nominated for Agency of the Year at the 2009 Marketing Industry Network Awards.

“I’m delighted to see our campaign recognised in this way. It’s a tribute to the very talented team that worked side-by-side with Kuoni on a constantly evolving campaign that used the very latest search technologies to great effect,” said Anneli Ritari, Senior Travel Strategist at bigmouthmedia.

New Copywriting And Branding Service Brings Social Marketing To The Beauty, Fashion, And Lifestyle Industries

Amid New York Fashion Week and beauty conference HBA, international copywriter Katja Bartholmess launches COPYGOLD, a copywriting and branding service aimed at the fashion, beauty, and lifestyle industries.

She keeps her industry knowledge fresh by learning from the best, attending workshops and tradeshows and by engaging with those who create – or critique – the latest trends. “I have my feet planted firmly in the real world,” the copywriter says, “but I navigate the virtual world of social media just as effortlessly.” She is a prolific twitterer and blogger (her lifestyle blog is read in over 5 countries and has a devoted following) and has a place in the relevant social networks.

She has a strong view on social marketing: “I see an enormous, and widely untapped, potential for fashion, beauty, and lifestyle brands to really engage their audiences through social media. Consumers, especially the attractive younger age brackets, have come to expect their brands and designers to be approachable. And they use the virtual world to flaunt their likes and dislikes for everyone to see. – This is something that can be harnessed in many fascinating ways and used to spark interest, foster loyalty, and make more sales. COPYGOLD can help here.”

As someone who called home places as diverse as London, Tokyo, South Africa and has offices in New York and Berlin, copywriter Katja Bartholmess brings an intimate understanding of international markets to the table.

“I’ve been an independent copywriter for about seven years,” Katja Bartholmess says, “and I’ve been proud to count cosmetic brands like Clarins and fashion brands like No Nonsense among my clients. – It was time to narrow my focus to the industries I know in and out and love the most. COPYGOLD represents that.”

If you want to get in touch with Katja, just write to her at katja@copygold.com – she’d be delighted.

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.

Media Mayhem Corporation has kicked off 2009 with a myriad of murder, suspense, chaos, and downright thrilling campaigns

Media Mayhem Corporation (MMC) has kicked off 2009 with a myriad of murder, suspense, chaos, and downright thrilling campaigns, leaving sponsors and consumers chillingly satisfied with the results of its wall-to-wall push of street, online, and mobile campaigns that ran globally over the last couple of months.

Boasting such figures such as the over 25.4 million views along with 8.7 million unique monthly visitors on the company’s direct Horror Network, MMC managed to capture an impressive 83 percent of adults in the prized 18 to 49 age group on such sites as Horrorwatch.com, Horrornews.net, Screamqueen.com, Buried.com, Palaceofhorror.com, Brimstone.org, Allhorrorfilms.com, Horror.net, and dozens of others.

MMC was pivotal in the online campaigns for such blockbuster films as My Bloody Valentine 3-D which has grossed over $60 million dollars in just 3 weeks since its theatrical release, Kiefer Sutherland’s Mirrors DVD campaign which incorporated a street team campaign that literally saw thousands of 8×8 see thru blood splattered window clinging promotional signs that were placed on bathroom mirrors of nightclubs and restaurants across the country from Los Angeles to New York.

The person coming upon the promo would then read directions to solving the mystery of the blood splatter telling them to “Text “Mirrors” to a code via cell phone and hear what happened at that spot where the promo was placed. The campaign also featured a full blown wall to wall multilayered marketing and pr blitz with a WAP mobile site, SMS video messaging, a viral component, and over the air transfers.

MMC proudly took part in a blistering campaign for the theatrical release of Saw V which saw a domestic opening of over $30 million dollars and eclipsing with a global take of over $113 million dollars by the end of its run. The company picked right up with Paramount Pictures The Uninvited…once again creating an original out of the box campaign taking in over $20 million dollars in its first week of release.

The slashing just wasn’t on the silver screen but also on your PC screen as MMC moved to games where they helped move thousands of copies of the cult fan friendly and critically acclaimed journey The Lost Crown: A Ghost-Hunting Adventure. The game, created by Johnathan Boakes, allows the player to use ghost hunting gadgets such as night vision cameras and E.V.P. to uncover secrets in a seaside town on the eastern England coast.

From games to books…MMC launched two successful campaigns for the horror novels Kill 4 Me , written by Joel M. Andre, and W.L. Hoffman’s The Soulstealer War.

“Our eyes are wide open to the horror genre, says MMC President Scott Messick. We have been looking closely over the last year and the entire industry is booming, we feel that we would be doing ourselves a dis-service by not addressing our accomplishments over such a short period of time and that we are finding new and exciting ways to reach out to the horror consumer. We had a number of exciting campaigns and contests for movies like Pathology, Joshua, and Stir of Echoes 2 in conjunction with the 2008 Screamfest Film Festival. Our goal in 2009 is to keep grabbing larger projects, proving that Media Mayhem is unlike anyone else out there and taking pride in our originality. Our Horror Network is growing on a monthly basis by the thousands and as long as we continue to expand, we believe our opportunities will as well.”

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.”

Bigmouthmedia has named the DVLAs campaign to increase the use of its online services as the Marketing Strategy of the Year at the National Business Awards

The DVLA’s campaign to increase use of its online services has been named bigmouthmedia Marketing Strategy of the Year at the National Business Awards.

Presented at a gala ceremony and Dinner which took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, the award recognised the DVLA’s unprecedented use of commercial tactics to promote a government service. Judges praised the agency for an innovative and successful campaign, which included giving away free low-emission cars in an online lottery.

“The DVLA’s campaign caught the public imagination and drove a massive increase in traffic to their site. It’s a classic example of how a blend of clear strategy, creativity and thinking outside the box can really deliver results,” said David Hardy, International Sales and Marketing Director at bigmouthmedia.

The DVLA managed to nudge ahead of some very stiff competition to collect the prize, with campaigns from Companies House, Lloyds TSB, Wow Stuff, Premier Inn, GD Environmental, Procter & Gamble UK, gocompare.com and Stockport Council all being nominated in this hotly contested category.

“The standard of entries was particularly high this year. Whittling them down to the final few nominations was hard enough, but in the end it was incredibly difficult to choose just one winner,” said Hardy.

The award ceremony which was hosted by Andrew Marr was attended by a number of leading and influential UK business figures, including Peter Mandelson, Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform and HRH Prince Edward, The Earl of Wessex.

Collecting the award, DVLA Head of Research and Marketing Derek Hobbs added: “We are absolutely delighted and honoured to receive this award. It’s a great boost for all the people that have worked on this campaign and provides welcome recognition for one of Britain’s biggest online services.”

Bigmouthmedia Research Reveals Britain’s Biggest PR Consultancies Fail To Come To Terms With The Opportunities And Challenges Posed By The New Media

Latest research from bigmouthmedia has revealed that Britain’s biggest PR consultancies are failing to come to terms with the opportunities and challenges posed by the rapid growth in new media.

According to the new bigmouthmedia digital marketing news survey of Britain’s 100 leading press and public relations agencies, 79% of the industry’s major players have yet to develop a set of online and social media services.

Meanwhile – despite the steadily increasing importance of blogging as a media tool – the survey showed that a surprising 89% are still failing to publish their own blogs.

“In today’s media environment it is vital that businesses communicate online, and companies that choose to ignore this are running a major risk. Traditional PR tactics are not going to go away anytime soon, but it is essential for companies to integrate online PR and social media into their existing offline communications strategies,” said Lyndsay Menzies, Managing Director of Bigmouthmedia UK.

Commenting on the research Adam Parker, Chief Executive of online news distribution company webitpr, added: “Despite finding that an increasing number of UK PR professionals are on the ball when it comes to online PR this survey confirms our experience that a high proportion are still more focused on traditional media. However, given that this is most probably a reflection of client budget and resource allocations, perhaps what we should be asking ourselves is what this says about UK business’ attitude towards online communications.”
