Media and comms agency OMD has announced a partnership with Outbrain, in a move to further strengthen its content marketing expertise.
The partnership will see OMD gain advanced access to Outbrain technology to inform the complete content marketing lifecycle.
Jez Clark, head of OMD Fuse Sydney (pictured above) said, “This partnership builds on our content marketing capabilities. Outbrain’s unique ‘Interest Graph’ gives us great insight into the content that Australians are consuming. We can use this to understand content gaps that exist online, and cater to digital content supply and demand.”
Clark continued, “We recognise Outbrain as a key force in the content marketing landscape. Not only with its scale in premium distribution and deeper access to content insights, but also in the ability to connect their distribution technology to our trading desk and DSP. This allows us to manage an end-to-end digital journey that starts with creation of content, all the way to acquisition.”
Outbrain’s content marketing platform allows content marketers to promote digital content across desktop, tablet and mobile to Australian audiences directly from online publisher sites. In Australia, Outbrain partners with premium publishers such as Fairfax Media, News Corp, MI9, Yahoo!7, The Guardian, Bauer Media and many smaller sites.
“OMD is Australia’s largest media agency and together we plan to expand and keep building on the work we are already doing together for key OMD clients,” said Adam Carroll, head of Amplify, Outbrain Australia – New Zealand.
“With industry surveys showing two out of three marketer’s feeling unsuccessful in content marketing, we see this as an opportunity for us and our agency partners. OMD is committed to work in partnership with us to drive meaningful client ROI from content marketing.”
