“We are very pleased with the change to nugg.ad and have high expectations for the results of our future targeting campaigns. Our portfolio of premium channels ranging from ecommerce to 50plus age group environments and our impressive market reach mean that Hi-media has everything it takes to allow advertisers to address their target groups precisely and efficiently,” says Nils Winkler, CEO Hi-media Deutschland.

“The effectiveness of targeting is only partially due to our sophisticated technology; it also rests on the quality of the channels to which a publisher has access. In Hi-media, we have found a client who has all it takes to reach new heights of success with nugg.ad,” adds Stephan Noller, CEO nugg.ad.

This new partnership with Hi-media will allow advertisers and media agents access to both pre-defined “best performer” target group categories and individual target group segments which are tailored to their campaigns. By accurately addressing the right kind of users, wasted advertising is reduced, increasing the campaign’s efficiency.
