nugg.ad and Dennis Publishing announce partnership

Leading UK publisher to test predictive behavioural targeting

Highly efficient and privacy certified campaign optimisation from branding to performance

London / Berlin, 26 January 2011: Europe’s largest targeting platform nugg.ad and Dennis Publishing, one of the world’s leading independent publishing houses, publicly announce a new cooperation for the English market. From now on, nugg.ad’s predictive behavioural targeting solutions will be made available for Dennis Publishing’s portfolio of online campaigns. Advertisers will now be able to accurately target their campaigns at audiences defined according to socio-demographics, lifestyle and product interests. Through nugg.ad’s practice of integrating not only users’ click data but also survey results into its targeting solutions, these products offer considerable advantages compared to traditional behavioural targeting solutions, making real-time target group contact possible even for groups which were otherwise difficult to reach. The results: huge improvements to the efficiency of performance or branding campaigns.

“Behavioural advertising is one of the top themes of 2011. With nugg.ad, we have chosen a targeting solution which is not only multifaceted and highly efficient, but also consistent with privacy law requirements. In conjunction with our premium fields, it will allow us to provide our advertising customers with everything they need to carry out efficient and successful online campaigns”, says Jamie Labate, Online Trading Director Dennis Interactive.

“With our predictive approach which we introduced to the market, we offer a key advantage compared to the classic methods of behavioural targeting. Through predictive behavioural targeting, target groups can be selected according to precisely defined socio-demographic criteria, making efficient campaign management possible even for products which do not fit into any existing online fields. We are delighted that Dennis Publishing has recognised this advantage and we look forward to a successful collaboration”, says Stephan Noller, CEO nugg.ad.
