Businesses and associations still submit shotgun RFP's, hoping for results, or scour the search engines trying unsuccessfully to find relevant results.

Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) June 24, 2008
Romantics have eHarmony. Advertisers have AgencyFinder.com. Now brand marketers and associations are getting their very own matchmaker: Business matching site Junta42 Match today opens its doors to brand marketers everywhere. With the launch of its groundbreaking new service, Junta42 Match is playing cupid for North America's very best branded-content providers and the marketers who want their talent. The announcement of this launch was made by Founder Joe Pulizzi.
"The process of finding qualified content providers for custom projects hasn't changed in years," said Pulizzi. "Businesses and associations still submit shotgun RFP's, hoping for results, or scour the search engines trying unsuccessfully to find relevant results. Finding a reliable and expert pool of custom content providers usually takes two weeks to two months. We'll get marketers a pre-qualified list in less than 10 minutes."
An April 2008 study conducted by content marketing education site--and Junta42 Match companion--Junta42 found that 87 percent of marketers are looking for out-of-house providers to create their branded content. From custom magazines to Web sites, eNewsletters to events, brands are expanding their custom publishing and content portfolios in order to directly reach their target audiences, and marketers are scrambling to find talented publishers and agencies that can meet their branding needs.
Until now, however, the process of finding branded-content providers that fit marketing projects in terms of content, project and audience expertise has been a challenge. Not anymore. Junta42 Match guides marketers through a simple--and entirely free--process that connects them with their ideal custom-content provider or offers them several carefully selected options. And since providers complete detailed application forms and are screened before being granted exposure within the database, marketers are guaranteed a reliable pool of pre-approved experts.
Among those offering their services on the new site are advertising agencies, interactive firms, content agencies, custom publishers, traditional publishers and other content experts and providers. In order to offer Junta42 Match as a free service to marketers, publishers pay the freight through both monthly and annual subscriptions.
Led by a team of experts who bring years of experience in both marketing and branded content to every decision they make, Junta42 Match aligns marketers' specific needs with publishers' core competencies, across several categories and variables. Marketers can be sure they are getting carefully-screened matches, selected from among the very best agencies and publishers in the country.
