The Economist has a large, loyal readership. That doesn’t mean they only read The Economist.
So The Economist Group last year launched a business unit called Ideas People Media, which manages the Ideas People Channel, a vertical network of more than 50 sites listed by readers of The Economist as their favorite destinations for topics ranging from business to globalization. The network, which runs display and mobile ads, reaches more than 25 million Web users in the U.S. and 37 million globally every month. It runs ads on sites like Kiplinger’s, International Business Times and The Technology Review.

When we sourced these favorite destinations, we realized we had the opportunity to build an ultra premium offer in the ad network space.”
