Stay Safe. Stay Home.

by Amobee, April 14, 2020

We are pleased to share a campaign update on our global reach and impact. As of today, we have delivered 500 million impressions and reached 268 million users across all seven continents. 

In addition, we have updated our creative to more directly urge people to stay home during this crisis, as advised by state and local health officials. 

See our new creative above, and please join us in thanking Marc Guldimann, Founder & CEO, Adelaide

In addition to targeting people at home and encouraging them to stay put, we will be working with our third-party data partners to target those who are out and about (but not in areas such as medical offices, hospitals, or grocery stores) to return home and stay safe. 

The Shift to All Things Online

Among last week’s insights delivered by our Brand Intelligence tool, we have seen a significant increase in the consumption of content related to online services and solutions. This pattern is consistent across web content, social media, and google search, reflecting how people are now looking for alternative online solutions to meet their needs. Working with our clients and prospects, Amobee is helping brands and agencies break down this consumption to understand the different types of new services consumers are seeking during this global shift. Opportunities for businesses to be of greater service during the pandemic are revealing themselves, from online learning to telemedicine, and almost everything between. 

Speaking of Being of Service…

We are pleased to announce several more companies have joined the COVID-19 PSA Campaign. See their names below and please join us in thanking them today.
