SeeSaw Adds Eight New Digital Ad Networks

Coverage includes c-store, grocery, vending, other retail locations

SAN FRANCISCO -- SeeSaw Networks, a media company offering a major network of place-based digital video advertising, has announced partnerships with eight additional networks. The new networks help consumer packaged goods' advertisers reach the on-the-go audiences of "moms," "millennials" and Hispanic families as they shop in convenience and grocery stores and at other quick snack and shopping destinations.

The eight new networks include Digital Promo Network, InStore Vision, QuickStore24, WNC Checkout, WNC Aisles, RDS Media, BuzzHub Network and Cabco's TV Kart Network.

As [image-nocss] part of the 50 million weekly impressions delivered by the SeeSaw network, the new networks enable SeeSaw to deliver more than 10 million weekly gross impressions at more than 2,500 convenience-oriented locations like convenience stores, malls, grocery stores and snack vending machines located in office buildings, manufacturing complexes, college campuses and hospitals, the company said.

Digital Promo Network and InStore Vision engage c-store customers with point-of-purchase advertising and in-store promotions. The QuickStore24 At Work Media Network delivers interactive media encompassing advertising and content through video touchscreens centered on high-traffic retail vending systems in a variety of blue-collar and white-collar at-work settings, including break rooms and cafeterias within large offices, manufacturing facilities and health facilities. WNC reaches grocery store consumers where they are primed to make purchase decisions, both in the aisles and at checkout. RDS Media deploys digital video screens in high-end liquor stores. BuzzHub puts interactive advertising kiosks in shopping malls. Cabco's digital shopping carts deliver powerful mobile advertising and touchpoint messaging directly to shoppers at grocery stores as they select their items.

Through its network of more than 40 digital media partners and its proprietary campaign planning and optimization technology, SeeSaw enables advertisers to plan digital video campaigns that deliver more impressions than a spot on a primetime TV program, it said. Using SeeSaw's Life Pattern Marketing approach to intercept people in their daily routineswhere they work, play, socialize, run errands and get healthyadvertisers can reach people when they are most receptive to contextually relevant messages.

Other convenience venues that brand managers and ad agencies are already purchasing through SeeSaw include Transworld Media Inc.'s c-store network; coffee shops, juice bars and Noah's Bagels with Ripple; and gas stations with network affiliates like PetroTV and PumpTop TV.
