Press release: Ströer continues to sustainably expand its reach and quality offering in digital marketing
- Quality wins publishers over: Ströer successfully extends its most important digital marketing mandates.
- Ströer significantly increases its digital reach in 2017 by around 7 million unique users per month to more than 52 million UUs.
- It significantly improves upon its top position in the AGOF marketing ranking in 2017 by gaining marketing mandates from companies like Bauer, Funke and Aufeminin.com.
Cologne, 7 December 2017 Ströer maintains its strong position in the field of digital marketing and has successfully extended important, long-standing mandates: Ströer will continue to market the high-reach publishers Kicker (Olympia Verlag), Mediasports, gutefrage.net and Freenet in the future as well. All of these mandates are being extended for the new year – the marketing success and the quality of Ströer’s digital marketing has won the publishers over.
The Ströer media company has continued to sustainably improve on its top position in the AGOF marketing ranking and, in 2017, increased its digital reach by around 7 million to 52.43 million unique users in October. Alongside important extensions to marketing mandates, gaining new publishers such as Bauer, Funke and Aufeminin.com has boosted Ströer’s strong position in digital marketing.“We have realised that our strategy is effective and are expecting this market consolidation to continue progressing. Due to our excellent access to customers and agencies as well as the quality of our marketing, we have been able to win over our publishers once again. We are looking forward to continuing to work well together,” says Tobias Conrad, Managing Director of Publisher Management at Ströer Digital. “We have been able to achieve essential synergies not least due to the final consolidation of all marketers and the successive migration of our technologies. This has won the market over and promises our publishers the best possible monetisation of their reach.”
Ströer is also in an excellent position with regard to the 2018 Football World Championship due to factors such as extensions to the marketing mandates of kicker.de, spox.de, goal.com, sportal.de, freenet.de/sport and the existing placement units of the regional publishing houses of OMS and t-online.de/sport.
