Vibrant Sees Major Growth in Auto Advertising in Q1 2011
2011 New York Auto Show
Contextual has been a strong tool for advertisers, particularly in the auto industry, with its ability to engage consumers in a relevant way. Vibrant partners with automakers to deliver a cohesive contextual strategy through display ads aligned with relevant Web content, and in-text links targeted to highly relevant keywords — focused on make and model, and key features such as "third-row seating" and "fuel efficiency."
"Vibrant's record growth is driven by the great value that contextual advertising provides to the leading national advertisers, our network of 6,000 premium publishers and 251 million unique users worldwide," says Doug Stevenson, Co-Founder and CEO of Vibrant. "Our auto revenue has increased 56 percent for the full year 2010 over 2009. We're off to a positive start for 2011 and foresee a bright future with a resurgent ad industry."
The New York Auto Show previews begin April 20 and the show runs April 22-May 1 at the Jacob Javits Center. In recognition of the resurgent industry and Vibrant's forward-driving leadership in auto contextual, the company will be hosting an inaugural, invitation-only VIP event with top agency and automaker marketing and digital players on April 20.
