The 2021 Digiday Technology Awards recognize companies advancing the digital media industry by fostering tech-focused innovation — specifically, the kind that powers relevant and personalized advertising.
Among this year’s entries, advertising technology platform Yieldmo is helping brands drive performance and acquire new audiences.
Nominated for Best Mobile Marketing Platform, Best Native Advertising Platform and Best Cookieless Identification Platform, Yieldmo worked with education-tech platform Encantos to engage with Spanish- and English-speaking parents interested in its language immersion for children’s products. The partnership leaned into tactics that included testing non-addressable ways to drive traffic and subscriptions with high-quality media. Yieldmo also worked with Ford on a Bronco campaign that prioritized machine learning and contextual targeting to boost KPIs and optimize campaign performance.
Digital media-tech company Quotient is nominated for Best Influencer Marketing Platform and Best Attribution Tool. The company’s influencer network and data-driven content strategy boosted sales for its health and beauty brand partner during back-to-college season. Quotient also partnered with Oreo to lift sales by using consumer-spending data, location intelligence and purchase-intent data to create personalized digital ads and promotions. The campaign connected with millions of shoppers.
Mobile ad-tech company InMobi is nominated for Best Sell-Side Programmatic Platform and Best Mobile Marketing Platform. InMobi Exchange highlights the company’s work, a two-sided marketplace that enables brands and agencies to understand, identify, engage and acquire their target customers in mobile environments. This is especially important as companies look for ways to reach high-value users on mobile devices in the wake of Apple’s Limited Ad Tracking feature, which requires all apps to acquire user consent before tracking them.
