Outbrain has signed an exclusive two-year partnership with India.com. The partnership with Outbrain will see India.com deploy the Outbrain Engage solution to enhance its digital strategy and surface high quality recommendations across both organic and sponsored content.
This partnership will enable India.com to draw on Outbrain’s proprietary technologies, allowing it to marry editorial curation with personalisation which in turn is expected to drive audience growth and engagement and also increase revenue opportunities.
India.com, an early adopter of Outbrain’s content recommendation and editorial decision-making solutions, will now use Outbrain exclusively across desktop, mobile, smartphone and tablet apps to scale the distribution of its content.
“Outbrain’s unwavering focus on quality recommendations that engage our varied audiences is the key reason that we decided to seal our partnership. We are confident that Outbrain will power the best quality recommendations through native experiences, and support our unique editorial needs to better engage our core digital users. We are excited to work with Outbrain to raise the bar in content and our focus on user experience,” said Nitin Kemse, Head of Programmatic and Ad Operations at India.com.[caption id="attachment_72844" align="alignleft" width="150"] Sandeep Balani[/caption]
