Triad Digital Media is the market leader in creating, managing and operating online media programs for leading retailer and e-commerce websites. Triad partners with large e-commerce websites such as Walmart.com, CVS.com, Dell.com and SamsClub.com and others to help them monetize their online traffic via targeted advertising placements and content. Triad creates, hosts and manages focused sections of each partner’s website and uses contextual and behavioral targeting to bring a highly relevant demographic to advertisers.
“Triad’s business model is unlike that of any traditional marketing or media company,” says Seth Alpert, Managing Director at AdMedia Partners. “They figured out that the visitors to online retail sites are a media opportunity, successfully created content areas on retailer partners' web sites, and sold ads and sponsorships to major advertisers. Triad's solution monetizes valuable online property and drives online and offline commerce.”
