Becoming the industry choice of publisher does not come easy. Through extremely hard work and commitment from our team, we managed to exceed targets quarter after quarter since we started in the UK market four years ago. With an industry that was quite stagnant when it comes to growth rates, GSG disrupted the industry in a way that was never seen before. Our approach to partner closely with news publishers was innovative, as it created a win-win for the entire industry. More and different types of consumers got access to great content (online and offline), we established a new and alternative revenue stream for news publishers and created high ROI for our advertising partners. This approach was instantly recognised by both clients and advertisers, and with an account management level that was second to none, we paved our way to success.
Being recognised as the publisher of choice by our peers in the industry is an enormous achievement and we are very proud of this award. It paid off all the hard work the team put in, especially during these difficult times. We would like to thank every single member of our team for being so amazing and resilient and above all for keeping our clients and partners happy and motivated. We are very unique on the way we do things and we plan to keep it this way for as long as we possibly can. Maintaining a healthy and joyful relationship with our clients is key for the success of the company. Combined with strong performance across the board, we are certain that this is only the beginning of a great journey. We are thankful for the partnerships we created in news publishing and for the dedication of their entire editorial and marketing team, that helps consumers on a daily basis to make better purchasing decisions.
