LiveIntent is proud to announce it has beenranked number 71 among the 2013 Inc. 500, America’s most prestigious ranking of fast-growing private companies, joining illustrious alumni like Microsoft, Oracle, Intuit, Zappos, Clif Bar, Chobani, Zipcar, and Vizio, as well as many other well-known companies that gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
This announcement comes on the heels of a year in which the Tribeca-based start-up saw 600% growth in both revenue and billions of impressions driven by the rapid adoption of its technology by leading publishers using LiveIntent’s real-time optimization platform for advertising in email. LiveIntent’s premium publisher base includes traditional newspaper and magazine holding companies including Meredith Corporation and McClatchy as well as web-only publishers such as Interactive One.
LiveIntent’s technology has ‘fixed email’, solving one of the oldest problems facing publishers: how to monetize valuable email subscriber base, their most loyal and attentive readers. They currently power the email ad inventory management for over 300 premium publishers across all sectors, with unique reach of more than 40 million a month. Using this vast exchange, LiveIntent unlocks an opportunity for advertisers to reach their audience with proven, real-time targeting and optimization strategies that leverage artificial intelligence, machine learning, location and device identification, and first and third party data to serve relevant messaging, direct to the inbox, on open.
But this is only the beginning for the fast-growing start-up. Their latest feature, LiveIntent Custom Audience, will allow advertisers to target their best customers using an email hash across their exclusive network of premium newsletters, then out into web based display and across Facebook, with an opportunity in the future to expand that reach across Twitter, Amazon, and others as this technology continues to be adopted.
“We are honored to be among the top 100 fastest growing companies by Inc. Magazine,” says Matt Keiser, CEO of LiveIntent. “Its further proof that the world is realizing email marketing is no longer about sending email.”
