 Magazine Ad Unit

Solves Business Challenges for DEALZ

Challenge

Our client, Dealz needed to create awareness about its promotional offers and drive engagements.

To do this, they needed to cut through the clutter and reach their target audience in a relevant way.

Solution

365 Studio built a brand-new ad unit that enabled Dealz to bolster their existing promotional catalogue campaigns by adding a digital catalogue format to their media mix.

The “Magazine Ad Unit” designed was a fully responsive HTML5 Rich Media ad that started out as a standard iab banner and then upon user interaction, expanded to a full takeover ad unit; with the capability to measure every interaction and engagement.

This ad unit was then placed on premium publishers within the 365 Digital network.
