We're excited to partner with DEI to provide a new way to connect with consumers on the web
Los Angeles, Calif. and Redwood City, Calif. (PRWEB) February 10, 2009
Committed to offering its clients the latest technologies for engaging with consumers online, DEI Worldwide, a leading social media marketing agency, has partnered with Predictify, an innovative online prediction community that delivers high quality brand insight directly to clients.
For companies and brands seeking to use social media to benefit their business, DEI is now offering Predictify's unique engagement platform, which enables marketers to post sponsored questions for a deeper connection with consumers. Sponsored questions consist of an immersive full-page ad unit with embedded images or video, plus widgets for placement on a company's Web site or for syndication as an interactive, IAB-standard ad unit. Rather than simply viewing an ad unit, participants interact with the content by making predictions, posting comments, and receiving a follow up email with an additional message from the sponsor.
"We have seen a recent trend in social networks such as Facebook and LinkedIn adding polling features and were very impressed with what Predictify has to offer," said Lou Cuming, COO, DEI Worldwide. "Their platform takes polling to the next level and with unique engagement solutions; Predictify is a great partner for helping our clients further build community and generate ROI."
Predictify, which has more than 2 million monthly unique visitors across its website and partner network, has gained momentum over the past year through partnerships with high-profile web properties including the Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Rock the Vote, Glam Media, and a number of blogs.
"We're excited to partner with DEI to provide a new way to connect with consumers on the web," said Parker Barrile, CEO of Predictify. "Our prediction platform, combined with DEI's expertise in conversational marketing, is ideal for advertisers seeking a combination of reach and deep one-on-one engagement."
