Rogers Media, Contobox launch new online ad service
Rogers Media has signed an agreement with Toronto-based online advertising company Contobox to launch a new advertising system called R.E.D. Contobox. The service will combine data from Rogers Media with the Contobox system for developing interactive advertisements. Advertisers using the system will pay based on “viewable user-initiated engagements” rather than by CPM metrics. It will be offered as both a managed and a programmatic ad-buying service. Through this agreement, Rogers Media Sales will be the exclusive sales representative for Contobox to Canadian agencies.
“With our expertise creating deep audience engagement and Rogers’s rich data sets, R.E.D. Contobox provides agencies the perfect tools for online campaigns,” said Petar Bozinovski, president of Contobox. “Advertisers are able to combine real-time consumer engagement data with R.E.D. segments to create unprecedented hyper-targeted opportunities at scale and serve up to thousands of pieces of dynamic creative to tell more relevant and engaging brand stories than ever before.”
