The agreement will enable Evolve Media to utilize the power of Outbrain’s Smartfeed technology, helping audiences discover engaging content-from articles to videos and more. In addition, Evolve Media will utilize Outbrain’s native advertising capabilities to augment its audience acquisition strategies.
“We’re excited to enter into a partnership with Evolve Media, whose goal is to streamline the advertising process and create stronger engagement amongst consumers,” said Josh Feller, Senior Vice President, Global Business Development at Outbrain. “Smartfeed provides flexible and scalable solutions catered to their needs increasing reader engagement and growing revenue.
