Boise, Idaho (PRWEB) January 16, 2008
Balihoo, the only web-based software for media organizations that streamlines the media research, selection, and request-for-proposal (RFP) processes with on-demand data, announced today that CMP (http://www.cmp.com), a media and marketing services company for the technology industry, sealed their position as a founding member. As a part of their founding membership, CMP will sponsor the B2B print, online and event sections within Balihoo's online database of advertising opportunities.
"In today's fragmented media world, it's imperative that we stay on the cutting edge of media buying and planning tools to ensure our products are well represented," said Paul Miller, President of CMP Electronics Group. "Balihoo has developed a tool that will drive much inefficiency out of the media planning process, and we want CMP's name at the forefront. We have a history of innovation in the B2B media marketplace and we are proud to act as a founding member."
CMP's media properties including Information Week, CRN, EE Times, and TechOnline are listed in Balihoo's search engine, along with a massive collection of advertising opportunities across all mediums. Media buyers using Balihoo can run advanced searches that filter results to best suit their campaigns. They can then select media properties to include in consideration sets and issue custom information requests and requests for proposals to those media properties directly through Balihoo.
Balihoo created the concept of a "founding member" to give media property owners such as CMP the opportunity to establish themselves as an early adopter of Balihoo's technology. Furthermore, founding members gain extensive branded visibility throughout the application.
Per their founding membership package, CMP advertisements rotate in a skyscraper on Balihoo's landing page. CMP also gains representation in skyscraper ads alongside Balihoo's search results page, appearing whenever a user runs a search within the print or online mediums.
CMP's media properties enjoy special banner branding and a highlighted listing within Balihoo's search results, as well as lifetime discounts off all promotional and advertising fees. Founding membership also grants CMP a seat on Balihoo's Product Advisory Board and co-branding at industry events.
"CMP is a leader in the B2B communications industry and we're thrilled to welcome them as a founding member," said Pete Gombert, CEO of Balihoo. "We will rely on CMP's guidance as we develop Balihoo into the choice for connecting advertisers and media content providers."
