Pioneering a new product concept from scratch is a feat unto itself, but promoting it post-launch poses its own set of challenges. Paid search promotions work well for products or services that consumers are explicitly seeking out, but what if the company’s new offering is something that no one has seen before? Flintobox is a theme-based “discovery box” that curates exploratory activities and games for children between the ages of two and eight. Delivered to customers’ homes as a monthly subscription, each box is tailored around a specific subject, such as “Space Adventure” or “The Little Musician,” and the company has already carved out a successful niche in the Indian childhood education market. In an effort to better educate audiences about its innovative offering, Flintobox invested in robust content marketing efforts, spanning blog content, ebooks and customized landing pages. The company teamed up with Taboola to promote these items on […]

This year was a tipping point for Taboola, with over half of our revenues now coming from mobile devices. Consumers around the world are spending more time on their smartphones, and in many emerging markets, these smaller screens are the only way that people access the web, presenting both new challenges and opportunities for our publisher and brand partners. While Taboola’s product team has always been focused on creating multi-platform solutions, we’ve also realized the importance of reaching consumers within native mobile app experiences (see our recent work with AP Mobile). Online user behavior varies extensively across the web — depending on context, device type, referral source, and more — and people immersed within mobile apps have proven to be particularly engaged, which makes these partnerships so valuable. Today, I’m excited to announce that Taboola has teamed up with InMobi, one of the world’s largest mobile advertising platforms. InMobi operates […]

Digital-first publishers may be more nimble than their traditional counterparts, but building a loyal readership from scratch can be especially difficult given the level of online competition for user attention. While social media networks have had a “flattening” effect, allowing new sites with compelling content to quickly go “viral” and reach massive new audiences, even those platforms are becoming increasingly cluttered, and many publishers are beginning to question the value of social-referred audiences. This is a challenged faced by publishers around the world, including independent digital media company Scroll, whose online destination Scroll.in has become one of the fastest-growing news sites in India. Looking to diversify its audience development efforts, Scroll teamed up with Taboola to target engaged audiences on top sites across the web, and ultimately grow their overall readership. We published a case study that features some of the key highlights from this partnership, including data around how […]

  As the web becomes more and more fragmented and mobile traffic booms, it is increasingly important for publishers around the world to think about how they can best engage audiences across all platforms, and this challenge has no borders. In India, millions of people are just now starting to get their hands on mobile devices. This single purchase decision has transformed the general population’s access to information and with it, the opportunity for publishers, brands, and marketers to cultivate relationships with millions of new consumers.

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 […]
