Viamedia, the leading cross-media local advertising company for independent video providers, has selected Bob Gold & Associates, a nationally recognized boutique public relations and marketing agency, as its public relations agency of record. The agency will help promote Viamedia’s comprehensive suite of advanced video and digital advertising solutions.
Viamedia offers a robust suite of technology and services that connect advertisers and audiences through integrated cross-media strategies. Specializing in delivering dependable, high-quality representation of advertising inventories, Viamedia provides cable TV operators, telcos, and streaming and other video providers with industry-leading technology and resources to manage costs and significantly increase monetization of available ad inventory. These solutions, in turn, empower brands and advertisers to reach and engage consumers effectively across any platform and device.
Today, Viamedia places nearly 1 million linear ads each day in 160 zones across 72 U.S. markets and has expanded its scope into impression-based cross-media selling for linear placements.
“For more than two decades, Bob Gold and his award-winning team have been highly regarded throughout the industry for their strategic communications and results-oriented campaigns, working with many of the biggest names in the cable industry,” said Mark Lieberman, president and chief executive officer for Viamedia. “Re-engaging with Bob Gold & Associates was the clear choice as we head into a heated political season and continue to expand our lineup of offerings with new breakthrough technology and innovation.”
Viamedia recently began successful market trials of its new cloud-based advanced television advertising solution, QTT™. The first-of-its-kind solution bridges the gap between linear TV and digital advertising, using digital standards to request and receive ads programmatically from a digital ad exchange in order to enable live linear cable television ad insertion in real time utilizing existing cable TV ad-insertion infrastructure. With this new patent-pending technology, Viamedia can significantly increase cable TV ad dollars by tapping into the surging programmatic digital advertising marketplace.
“Whether you’re in need of local, regional or national advertising solutions, Viamedia continually astounds me as the ideal partner for any independent video provider with creative, dynamic and, most importantly, impressive revenue-generating results. It’s a one-stop, customer-focused video advertising company that’s not only driving industry-leading tech innovation – it’s backed by a team that puts their customers’ needs, satisfaction and ROI first,” said Bob Gold, president and owner of Bob Gold & Associates. “By packaging the power of local TV with the reach of cross-media, engaging today’s consumers has never been easier. Simply put, if you’re not buying Viamedia, you’re not buying America.”
