New York, NY (PRWEB) May 28, 2008
Ypulse.com, the leading independent blog for media and marketing professionals seeking to reach youth audiences, in partnership with publisher Modern Media, today announced the launch of Ypulse Research, research.ypulse.com. Ypulse Research is a neutral platform and channel within Ypulse.com, where youth-oriented research reports and white papers will be available for sale. Additionally, Ypulse Research provides unique advertising opportunities where research companies can promote their companies, studies and services via traditional online advertising units.
Ypulse attracts marketers, media and entertainment executives, as well as non-profit professionals, who use research to reach today's generation of "totally wired" tweens, teens and twentysomethings. The addition of Ypulse Research marks Ypulse's continued growth and commitment to covering the youth marketing space. "We want Ypulse to be a one stop shop for news and information about youth," said Anastasia Goodstein, Ypulse founder and editor. "Research plays an important role in understanding the changing media and marketing landscape as it relates to youth, and we are excited to offer youth marketers and media professionals a diverse group of reports from a growing list of vendors."
The site launched this week with research reports from:
- AMP Agency, an Alloy Media + Marketing Company: Cause AMPlified
- AllyKatzz.com: What's Hiding in Her Fridge?
- Harris Interactive: The Social Networking World
- OTX Research and the Intelligence Group: Teen Topix
- Pearl Research: The Phoenix Generation: China Youth Project - Online Games in China
- SurveyU: The Now Report Winter 2008 Digital Edition
"Ypulse Research will rapidly become the premier source of research and intelligence on the youth market," said Peter Shafer, Vice President of the Harris Interactive Youth Center of Excellence. "There is so much talk about the youth market and its vitality and influence. Amazingly, there was no one centralized and trusted place to get the up-to-date research on trends, attitudes and behaviors of this market." Added Ypulse Research partner Anastasia Toomey, Senior Vice President, Consumer Insights at the AMP Agency, part of the Alloy Media + Marketing family, "We're excited to be a premier research partner for Ypulse's new channel. With this platform, a wide range of companies gain access to meaningful data that touches on key areas shaping today's coveted youth population. We're looking forward to strong response from the Ypulse community".
