Collective Media Upgrades Proprietary Targeting Platform, Standardizing Behavioral and Contextual Methodology to Vastly Improve Online Ad Performance
NEW YORK, Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Collective Media, a leading online advertising network, today announced it has upgraded AMP, its proprietary audience targeting platform to interface with an advanced contextual analysis and categorization application from Personifi. AMP is the first ever audience targeting platform that standardizes both contextual and behavioral targeting, providing a side-by-side, practical comparison for advertisers to more accurately compare effectiveness between the two targeting options. By 2008, the amount advertisers spend on behavioral targeting is expected to reach $2.1 billion, representing the fastest growing sector of online advertising. However, advertisers remain skeptical and uncertain as to how behavioral segments are created and work in comparison to contextual advertising. Collective's AMP is the first platform to offer this level of unified analysis and transparency. Personifi, a leading provider of automated contextual classification solutions, partnered with Collective to power AMP, utilizing Personifi's unique context-sensing technology to provide more reliable methodologies to collect and analyze audience targeting data. "Collective is in the business of selling audiences. Obviously, the more accurate we pinpoint audiences, the greater value we create for our clients," said Joe Apprendi, CEO of Collective Media. "With this new platform and working closely with Personifi, we gain a clearer understanding of how we can increase our clients' success rates through the use of contextual and behavioral audience targeting. These capabilities are complementary solutions that, when used in combination, provide more informed opportunities for advertisers." "Personifi and Collective share a commitment to the highest standards of quality and have demonstrated expertise in optimizing display media opportunities for advertisers," said Frost Prioleau, Chairman and CEO of Personifi. "By applying our technology to Collective's platform, we are confident that this collaboration will benefit advertisers with more exact message placements and increase inventory yield."
