Martini Media Teams with eXelate to Reach Highest Spending and Most Influential Online Audience1
Deal creates complete modeling for marketers seeking precision scale in courting the $100K+ audience
Martini Media (www.martinimediainc.com), the digital platform for the $100K+ audience, and eXelate (www.exelate.com), the engine that powers 20 billion real-time, privacy-compliant data connections each month for over 200 publishers and marketers, today announced a deal that will give marketers a new level of precision at scale in approaching the most important audience online.
Martini will combine its behavioral data on $100K+ consumers, collected via more than 1,000 partner sites catering to their business and lifestyle interests, with data from the eXelate Data Marketplace. eXelate’s Data Marketplace aggregates demographic, behavioral interest and purchase intent data on more than 200 million unique visitors monthly. As a result of the partnership, marketers will be able to identify and reach the most influential consumers across the Internet more effectively.
“Marketers need to be able to extend micro targets across the Internet,” said Skip Brand, CEO of Martini Media. “The combination of Martini’s precision targeting and eXelate’s scale will make it easier than ever to reach the people with the greatest online buying power and influence.”
For Martini, this is the latest in a series of technology upgrades aimed at opening the most influential market for advertisers. The company recently announced it will develop a proprietary platform for branded response targeting, and cut a deal with NetSeer for contextual targeting.
“Our partnership allows marketers to access the largest volume of high-value decision makers through one system,” said Mark S. Zagorski, CEO of eXelate. “As online marketers demand more precision, technology leaders need to collaborate on platforms that deliver more relevant audiences. Martini Media delivers one of the most attractive high-end audiences on the Web. When you combine that with the rich insight and additional scale that eXelate tools and data can provide, you have a match made in marketer heaven.”
