NEW YORK - (September 29, 2011) - Casale Media Inc., a leading premium online media company, today announced a strategic relationship with Turn Inc., the only open, enterprise-level digital marketing platform, giving Casale’s current roster of nearly 3,000 premium publishers access to advertisers within the Turn platform. This integration dramatically increases the volume and selection of quality advertising for Casale’s publishers while giving Turn’s advertising partners more premium media environments to choose from.
For the past eight years, Casale Media’s mission has been to pioneer online advertising technologies that help the industry live up to its potential, seamlessly connecting the highest quality publishers with effective advertising. The integration with Turn is another step to that end, giving premium publishers exposure to new revenue opportunities with leading agencies and Fortune 500 brands who utilize the Turn platform without having to give up control of their advertising inventory.
Snagajob, the leading provider of talent management solutions for hourly employers, currently uses Casale Media’s premium exchange – CasaleX – to help sell out its advertising inventory, which includes more than 250MM ad impressions each month. The integration of Casale Media and Turn gives Snagajob an even larger demand source and additional opportunities to maximize the company’s revenue on unsold inventory. In addition, Snagajob maintains the control and transparency for which Casale Media is known by determining exactly which ads can appear on its site and at what rate.
"Our goal at Snagajob is always to place the highest quality and best targeted advertisements on our site given our unique audience," said Shade Wilson, Director B2B Marketing at Snagajob. "The integration of Turn with CasaleX strengthens our ability to reach that goal. Each month, we fill a large percentage of our high value unsold inventory through CasaleX while also keeping complete control over which ads end up on our site."
"This partnership was driven by our clients’ strong desire for access to the premium publishers available through Casale," said Bill Demas, president and CEO of Turn. "Having scale and access to quality inventory from partners like Casale is critical for our clients and working with them has been a real pleasure. Not only was Casale one of our fastest real-time bidding integrations, it has quickly become one of our top fifteen inventory partners in terms of volume – a perfect testament to both teams’ efforts."
"Partnering with Turn allows us to continue delivering on two of our biggest publisher promises: quality and control," said Joe Casale, CEO of Casale Media. "By giving our premium publishers access to even more quality advertisers while still maintaining control of their ad inventory, these publishers can continue to optimize ad performance on their sites through new sources of demand."
