New York, NY (PRWEB) January 22, 2009
Pontiflex, the industry's first open and transparent cost-per-lead (CPL) market, today announced that it has been selected to the 2009 OnMedia 100 List. The OnMedia 100 Award is given to private, emerging technology companies in the advertising, publishing, marketing, branding and public relations spaces. Pontiflex was selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team based on demonstration of growth, market opportunity, quality of innovation and customer traction.
Pontiflex allows advertisers to pay only for qualified leads and not for clicks and impressions that might never convert. Through its flagship product Pontiflex AdLeads, advertisers can deploy transparent CPL campaigns, run direct response and display advertising on a CPL pricing model and buy brand-specific marketing leads from the entire market. In recent months, the number of advertisers using transparent CPL advertising to build community sites, newsletters and other engagement vehicles has grown sharply. Recent advertisers who have run campaigns with Pontiflex include the Barack Obama campaign, True North, Travel Nevada, IO USA, New Egg and Designer Linen Outlet.
"We are delighted to be selected for the OnMedia 100 list," said Zephrin Lasker, CEO & Co-founder of Pontiflex. "We look forward to continue being at the forefront of the shift in online advertising to performance based pricing models, and helping our clients generate guaranteed returns on their marketing dollars."
Pontiflex and the other OnMedia 100 winners will be recognized at the OnMedia 100 Conference at the Ritz Carlton, New York City, on February 2-4. This two-and-a-half day executive conference is co-presented by Forbes and will feature presentations and high-level debates from CEOs, journalists, industry experts, investors and publishing and advertising executives.
"The 2009 OnMedia 100 companies have demonstrated their tenacity even in the toughest economic conditions that the technology world has ever encountered," said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "We applaud their success in pushing the boundaries of innovation, creating market opportunities and transforming the industry even in the earlier stages of their businesses."
The OnMedia 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2009 list.
