Getty Images has teamed up with Znaptag an in-image ad network for premium brands and publishers. The global collaboration gives Znaptag access to Getty Images’ vast catalogue of images and the associated information on what’s depicted.
They say: The image information will be used by Znaptag to enable brands to get access to new prime advertising real estate (in-image ads) while ensuring brand safety and contextuality, and publishers to monetize their image content in an effective and non-intrusive way.
“New ad formats and technologies are required to further spur online ad growth,” says Miki Momen, CEO and co-founder of Znaptag, “and our acclaimed platform can serve a wide variety of in-image ad formats ranging from animated rich media ads to action triggered interactive tags.”
Mr Momén continues: “The right ad at the right place is what all marketers are looking for and Znaptag can cater to this wish in a big way. By placing ads inside images, brands get to put their message directly where the audience is looking – the engagement rate for contextually relevant in-image ads are far superior to any other placement when done correctly. Within two years’ time we are certain that marketers have realized that in-image ads should be a significant part of every online budget.”
Vinay Solanki, Director, Business Development, Getty Images says: “Getty Images is excited to be working with Znaptag by offering our metadata to target a very novel approach to advertising using our content to provide publishers with new revenue streams.”
