LOS ANGELES and NEW YORK, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Traffic Marketplace, a division of Epic Media Group, today announced the expansion of its tmpSocial platform to include the acquisition of Social Suitcase, a notable social media company with a reputation for providing advertisers with brand campaigns that increase user engagement, monetization and brand impact. The acquisition further strengthens Traffic Marketplace's social web capabilities, enhanced targeting capabilities, and distribution via the tmpSocial platform. Traffic Marketplace's collective expertise gives clients a comprehensive offering of social media tools and proven techniques that increase the impact and effectiveness of social media campaigns.

Epic Media Group CEO, Art Shaw, explained, "tmpSocial provides results-driven social media programs for advertising clients. This is critical, as advertisers are realizing they must leverage social media to succeed. The challenge for advertisers today is not only monetization or demonstrating ROI when pursuing social-based advertising, but rather ensuring their methodology is reaching their target audience effectively. Traditional direct-response methods simply do not apply here; more creative solutions are a must."

Sheldon Owen, General Manager of tmpSocial added "We are emerging as a leader in online advertising and the acquisition of Social Suitcase is an important addition to our suite of tools and offerings necessary to ensure our current and future clients' success in this rapidly evolving market."

"I couldn't be happier to be a part of a strong, winning company that will allow Social Suitcase to succeed and leverage what we've built on a more robust platform," said Jason Beckerman of Social Suitcase.

Traffic Marketplace now offers solutions such as branded Facebook applications, branded Twitter campaigns, video distribution and engagement, in-game promotions and virtual currency, and a premium application display network. Traffic Marketplace is also investing heavily in behavioral targeting technology and distribution capabilities through the expansion of tmpSocial, as a result of the recent merger of Epic Advertising and Connexus Corporation to form Epic Media Group.,
