Precision Health Media & Spongecell Inc. Partner to Provide Powerful Online Video Ad Solution for Pharma Brands

Precision Health Media and Spongecell Inc. have partnered to give pharma brands unparalleled targeting and engagement in brand-safe environments. With Precision Health's new video channel, pharma marketers can pair the massive reach of PHM and its laser-targeted ConditionMatch(R) technology with engaging, easy-to-build Spongecell ad units. ConditionMatch(R) finds the top-performing content pages for a pharma brand's video, while Spongecell's technology presents the video in a highly engaging creative unit. The interactivity of Spongecell's ads boosts consumer engagement by 154% over standard, static ads. Moreover, PHM's Video Channel needs no special player to take advantage of any and all standard banner inventory. Spongecell's technology enables this across-the-web scalability by embedding video in a banner ad without going over the 40K file size restriction. And unlike other video solutions, which can be an interruption in the user experience, Spongecell's in-banner video technology requires users to scroll over the banner to initiate the video ad.
