The news hit the stands this morning that Brainient has signed a partnership with ITV, the largest commercial television network in the UK and one of the largest in Europe. This is big news for us, for a few reasons:
Firstly, it’s a sign that what we’ve been preaching as a company for the past four years – interactive video formats becoming the default in video advertising because they deliver substantial increase in performance – is finally mainstream and broadcasters like ITV are doubling down on interactive formats.
Secondly, it’s a testament to the quality of our product and our team’s ability to deliver interactive video formats at scale. In the first three quarters of 2013 we’ve delivered over 1,000 campaigns for customers in seven different territories. That’s a huge accomplishment for the small team we have here at Brainient.
Thirdly and most importantly, signing a customer like ITV is a key milestone for the company and one that’s already created a domino effect across many other blue chip customers in the UK and beyond.
I believe a company is only as good as the people it employs, and I couldn’t be more proud of the team we have at Brainient. I am fortunate to be able to learn new things from my team everyday and feel very lucky to be able to surround myself with amazing people.
You can read more about the deal here, and expect more good stuff from Brainient in the upcoming months. We’re only 2% into what we think is possible in digital advertising and we’re very excited about the new stuff we’re working on.
