Are Media has partnered with creative management platform, Bonzai, and real estate giant Combined Franchise Services to launch a first to market advertising format which empowers advertisers to create engaging and effective campaigns that showcase multiple products in one ad unit.
Launch partners Combined Franchise Services, who operate Century 21 and Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, will utilise the new Dynamic Carousel to promote eight properties, each with their own image, location details and click-through links to individual property pages, within state targeted ads.
Century 21 will run the new Dynamic Carousel format on Are Media’s Homes to Love and Home Beautiful sites with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate promoted on the Better Homes and Gardens site.
The Dynamic Carousel addresses the content and production challenges faced by advertisers and publishers as it is scalable. It can be promoted across any of Are Media’s sites and sections as it runs out of standard desktop billboards and mobile MREC positions.
The format allows advertisers greater brand control over campaigns as the ads can be audience and geo-targeted, and there is no double-handling of assets. Creative changes can be managed quickly by the client as the content update process is automated by a Google Sheet or via a feed. It also offers greater reporting capabilities and supported analytics.
Andrew Cook, director of sales at Are Media said, “we’re always looking at new ways to connect commercial partners with our audiences and we’re excited to have worked with Combined Franchise Services and Bonzai, to launch this innovative Dynamic Carousel format. As it can be custom designed for individual campaign requirements and has applications for a great number of advertisers.”
Bonzai’s founder and CEO, Rahul Pandey added, “advertisers for a long time have faced the challenge of scaling their campaigns and engaging effectively with their audience all the while being agile, in control and relevance. Bonzai’s Dynamic Carousel responds to these needs and aims to simplify the production process for SMBs and publishers alike.”
Frank Knez, CEO at Combined Franchise Services said, “it’s important that our audiences have optimal user experiences when they engage with our brands across digital platforms. We’re delighted to have partnered with Are Media and Bonzai on the launch of the Dynamic Carousel to showcase our properties and drive audience awareness and interest.”
