ad2one, the UK’s leading digital sales house, has announced that Allrecipes.co.uk, the world’s largest and most active online food community, has launched on its new Premium Marketplace, taking the total number of publishers on the platform to 42.
Over forty brands already signed up include Jamie Oliver, LastMinute.com and Transport for London.
Powered by AppNexus, ad2one’s Premium Marketplace entered into the market last month, offering buyers programmatic access to trusted premium inventory with engaging and highly relevant audiences. Allrecipes.co.uk will join over forty household brands already featuring digital inventory via the platform, including Currys, PC World, Jamie Oliver, Square Meal, Delia Online, LastMinute.com and Transport for London.
The ad2one Premium Marketplace offers benefits to publishers and agencies including:
• Simple, easy integration for programmatic trading partners
• Sophisticated floor rates across all levels (publisher, trading desk, advertisers, ad format)
• Full support for all digital ad formats
• A central Deals Centre where ad2one will package and communicate deals in real-time to media agency trading desks
The Premium Marketplace works alongside ad2one’s other core sales service areas - ad2one Direct, the traditional sales team offering of working directly with agencies and publishers, and ad2one Audience, which allows agencies to engage with highly relevant audiences across the premium portfolio of brands, allowing buyers to reach consumers via audience demographics.
Allrecipes is a leading site in the UK and Ireland and the world’s largest and most active online food community serving more than one billion visits annually. It aims to energise home cooks to confidently accomplish all their cooking goals by discovering and sharing food ideas and experiences. Ad2one has looked after the company’s digital advertising since 2007.
