4 May 2011: mediasports, Germany's largest independent online sport publisher, founded at the beginning of 2010, and nugg.ad, Europe’s largest targeting platform, have agreed a collaboration initiative. With immediate effect, attractive target groups, broken down by socio-demographics and product interests, are available for online campaigns across the entire mediasports portfolio. More than 7 million users frequent mediasports each month with more than 70 million visits; its offer includes portals such as kicktipp.de, Formel1.de and SPOX.com. With its participation in the nugg.ad Open Targeting platform, mediasports is also available for large-scale cross-publisher branding campaigns.

Christian Griesbach, Managing Director of mediasports:“Thanks to nugg.ad’s support, we are now able to offer our customers more exact and more diversified target group addressing. As a result, our portfolio is more attractive for both branding-oriented customers and transaction campaigns."

“With a multitude of quality brands and an immense vertical penetration, mediasports is a valuable partner for nugg.ad. With the frequency of users, the targeted addressing of diverse target groups will be a fruitful tool for online advertisers, despite the thematically specialised portfolio”, states Stephan Noller, CEO nugg.ad.

The targeting market leader nugg.ad offers online advertisers precise target group addressing independently of any blanket distribution of marketing materials among predefined social milieus. By combining survey data and information gathered from surfing behaviour, the nugg.ad algorithm classifies users, in advertising-relevant profile groups, within the nugg.ad customer portfolio, anonymised and in real time in accordance with data protection requirements. With mediasports, nugg.ad has gained a further top marketing customer and continues to expand its market leadership.
