GumGum, a contextually relevant, international digital advertising platform, unveiled a new project through GumGum Gives. It is an initiative that uses audiences’ and participants’ strengths to improve social interactions. Its objective is to assist advocacy groups in getting people to pay attention to and become aware of them through the GumGum non-interruptive In-Video linked TV ad format. The Trevor Project, a non-profit dedicated to preventing LGBTQIA+ adolescent suicide, WildAid, and Digitalundivided, an organization that supports Latina and Black women entrepreneurs, are the first organizations to collaborate with GumGum.
As one of its broad social impact pillars, this fresh effort is a crucial component of GumGum’s dedication to social impact. The business is dedicated to fostering a more inclusive and diverse tech sector. It contributes to the community’s and society’s positive effects. By utilizing their In-Video connected TV ad unit, GumGum promotes awareness of and advocates for advocacy organizations through this project.
The newest and most cutting-edge advertising format offered by GumGum, In-Video, enables brands to interact with viewers in real time without interfering with their viewing experience. Publishers who permit In-Video advertising have additional options to profit by providing extra material for advertisers to use. For both free, ad-supported TV (FAST) and video on demand (VOD), all CTV publishers utilize overlay advertising.
Premier Partnering Organizations
Until the end of the year, campaigns for The Trevor Project, WildAid, and digitalundivided are all running across GumGum’s inventory. Additionally, they have had great success. For a period of the campaign’s flight duration, one of the organizations in particular received over 20%-point life in organizational awareness and ad recall.
Here’s what they said
GumGum’s Chief Technology Officer, Ken Weiner said,
The CTV audience is huge and continues to grow, and we are excited to work with advocacy organizations like The Trevor Project, WildAid, and digitalundivided to leverage our In-Video ad unit to help them amplify attention and grow awareness. The biggest benefit of In-Video is that it’s an extremely cost-effective and low-lift way to help these organizations meet audiences in the right moment as they watch streaming TV.
Abie Peacock (she/her), Senior Director of Integrated Marketing for The Trevor Project commented,
We are grateful for the partnership of GumGum in helping us reach new audiences to raise awareness of The Trevor Project’s critical life-saving work. At a moment where anti-LGBTQ legislation and rhetoric is at an all-time high, and LGBTQ young people need our support more than ever, it is inspiring that through the power of this partnership, so many target audience members have been moved to take action in support of Trevor’s life-saving mission.
Brittany S. Hale, Interim CEO & COO of digitalundivided stated,
As the number of women of color entrepreneurs continues to grow, we understand the value of meeting them where they are and cultivating a supportive ecosystem of partners that share an aligned vision to advance equity in the innovation space. We’re grateful to be a part of this initiative and to have resources like GumGum to help further build awareness around the work we do to champion equity and opportunity for women of color founders at all stages of their entrepreneurial journey.
