Over the past few years, it’s been exciting to watch Dan Abrams grow his company from an upstart into a fully-fledged digital media business. The level of competition for online audiences grows more intense each year, which has made the rapid ascent of his group all the more remarkable, fostering loyal and engaged readerships on sites like Mediaite, The Mary Sue, Styleite and The Braiser. Yesterday, Taboola announced an exciting new partnership with Abrams Media to boost content discovery and monetization efforts across its network of popular sites. Taboola’s predictive technology will power personalized recommendations alongside editorial, on both desktop and mobile platforms, presenting audiences with both in-network content as well as promoted stories from across the web.

The rise of social media giants, from Facebook to Twitter to Snapchat, has created new channels for media companies to reach large audiences.

Last week, several members from Taboola’s Asia-Pacific team were on-site at the iMedia Brand Summit in Goa, meeting with some of India’s most influential marketers and exchanging thoughts on how the digital media industry is evolving throughout the country. The three-day event, hosted at the beachside Alila Diwa Goa resort, included keynote speeches from executives at leading companies such as BBC News, Samsung, Forrester Research and IBM. The event also featured a session led by our own Joe France, Director of Sales and Partnership Management at Taboola APAC. Speaking in front of an audience of over 70 top brands, Joe walked through the fundamentals of Taboola’s algorithm and the ways that content discovery can enable brands to reach consumers through in-depth storytelling. While many of the brands in attendance were focused on the data segments of customers they already knew, Joe explained how “discovery” can engage with a much broader […]

In a recent post, we covered the legacy of sponsored content—from advertorials in print publications to “branded entertainment” on TV—that paved the way for today’s native advertising. But despite this long history, and the fact that most of us are exposed to native advertising every day, many people still have a narrow understanding of “native” and the many different forms it can take to help publishers better monetize their business. By expanding our definition of native to encompass more diverse forms of branded content, publishers can tap into a multi-billion dollar market, bolster their overall businesses, and take back revenue from the industry’s “Goliath” that is commandeering too much of the digital media space today. The Native We Know: On-Site Custom Branded Content Most people who are familiar with the phrase “native advertising” think of it in terms of those prominent examples cited in our previous post, namely branded content […]

One of the biggest challenges any content marketer faces is coming up with a way to determine whether their content is actually working. Indeed, even if your brand has produced a series of excellent stories, you’ll need to prove that they are helping your company generate sales if someone is going to give you the budget to create more content in the future. And since consumers usually do not make a purchase immediately after watching or reading a piece of content, content marketers have a much more difficult time showing the impact of their work than, say, a direct-response marketer who can just point to their sales conversions. With that in mind, here are four other metrics you can use to gauge whether your content marketing is having the desired effect on your target audience. An expanded definition of “conversions” Typically, we think of a “conversion” in online marketing as […]

  At Taboola, we think every day should be a day to explore the world – whether outside or online – because you never know when you’ll discover something new. So, it should be no surprise that we wanted to acknowledge today’s official public holiday in Canada: Discovery Day. Canada’s Discovery Day was established to honor the anniversary of the discovery of gold on August 16,1896. The shiny precious metal was found in the Klondike region of the Yukon and the event marked the beginning of the Klondike Gold Rush, prompting enthusiastic miners from Seattle and San Francisco to join the search. As you might have already guessed, “Discovery Day” is celebrated in several other parts of the world, signifying a variety of different events and sightings. These areas include The Bahamas (commemorating Christopher Columbus’ discovery of the New World in 1492), Brazil (in honor of Pedro Alvares Cabral who […]
