Cue Digital Amplifies Brand’s Existing Social Campaigns in Premium Mobile Publisher Environments
-New Boost Box ad format increases post view time and lifts brand awareness-
TORONTO, February 5th, 2019 – Cue Digital, the online media sales agency that delivers engagement to the most lucrative consumer audiences in Canada, today announced a partnership with technology solutions provider Polar. With this agreement, Cue becomes the first company in Canada to deliver the new Boost Box ad format for brands to their run social posts as display ads in Cue’s brand safe, premium mobile publisher environments.
Boost Box captures posts from a brand’s social handle and dynamically renders it as an integrated digital ad within a mobile 300x250 ad slot in the stream. This allows brands to re-purpose their existing, organic Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter posts and run them in publisher display inventory. Globally, brands are experiencing stronger engagement and attention than any standard banner ad. In an Ipsos Connect social card distribution brand lift study conducted in fall 2018, Boost Box performed better than standard display alternatives, delivering 71 percent increase in brand awareness, 54 percent lift in brand relevance, and 42 percent greater purchase intent.
“We are excited to offer brands a simple way to amplify their existing social campaigns to new audiences,” said David U.K., CEO, Cue Digital. “Boost Box and social media amplification is one more way Cue Digital is transforming itself into a digital media company of the future.”
“Forty-one percent of social media users say they no longer trust the ads they see in social platforms. That growing banner blindness means that brands and advertisers need to diversify paid social spend,” said Kunal Gupta, CEO, Polar. “We chose to partner with Cue Digital, in Canada, because their premium publishers provide the trusted, brand safe environment advertisers need to maximize their results.”
