SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Ampush, an industry leading provider of native, in-feed mobile advertising on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest, announced that it was recognized as one of the initial members of the Instagram Partner Program, a new program that distinguishes companies and their capabilities to run effective advertising campaigns, manage communities, and source and deliver content on Instagram.
Companies in the Instagram Partner Program have expertise in at least one of three specialties — ad tech, community management and content marketing — to help marketers meet their objectives. Ampush has been badged in Ad Tech, acknowledging the company's ability to help advertisers plan, buy, optimize, and measure campaigns on Instagram.
Based in San Francisco, Ampush offers a full-service solution that combines software, strategy, execution and creative services. The company specializes in customer acquisition and direct response marketing across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest. Its AMP software platform powers ad buying, optimization and insights, helping advertisers in the E-commerce, Financial Services, Media and Entertainment, Mobile Gaming, and Travel verticals profitably acquire customers and achieve their performance marketing objectives. Ampush has grown substantially, with first half net revenue up nearly 100% YoY in 2015. In recognition of its growth, Ampush is ranked #61 in the 2015 Inc. 5000 and #4 in the software category. The company also recently announced it has received a $15MM strategic investment from Red Ventures, a technology-driven marketing and sales company.
Since it first began advertising on Instagram in July, Ampush has helped 25 of its partners, spanning a wide spectrum of industry verticals, plan and execute a variety of different campaigns on the platform, both domestically and internationally. This includes mobile app installs, website conversions, and video views.
"Ampush began advertising on Facebook in 2010. We were among the first to capture its mobile potential, and so we jumped at the chance to double down on the partnership and get involved in Instagram's advertising alpha," said Ampush CEO Jesse Pujji. "To date, the performance has been awesome. We're excited about this latest step in the program's evolution, which will help new advertisers quickly and easily identify companies such as Ampush that have proven expertise on the platform."
With a community of 400 million, Instagram is the place on mobile where marketers go to tell creative, visual stories to drive business results. The Instagram Partner Program will spur innovation to meet the diverse needs of marketers across the globe.
