ShareThis to expand international operations with AD2ONE partnership

London, 2nd April 2014: AD2ONE has announced a partnership with ShareThis, the company that uses large-scale social data to deliver breakthrough insights and advertising solutions across mobile and desktop environments, to help support the expansion of ShareThis’ international operations. The partnership will see AD2ONE help ShareThis deliver data-driven insights, audience building and advertising solutions to brands in the UK, Ireland, Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand. ShareThis reaches 75% of the UK online population via more than 26,000 publisher sites, and partnering with AD2ONE will enable the brand to have a UK focused team to help brands safely and effectively reach their audience and drive revenue.
By measuring activity across 2.5 million websites, ShareThis calculates a Social Quality Index (SQI) score that indicates which websites generate the most shared content relevant for individual brands. More than 690 million consumers currently use ShareThis globally to recommend content across multiple devices and more than 120+ social channels from LinkedIn, to Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. A majority of the top 100 US digital advertisers partnered with ShareThis in 2013 and the international expansion is driven by the growth of the global sharing economy. According to eMarketer, the internet advertising market is expected to grow to $56 billion globally by 2015 and the UK alone is set to make up nearly 10% of the total. Kurt Abrahamson, CEO, ShareThis, said, “We’ve partnered with AD2ONE because they’re a great team of likeminded people who have established themselves as a trusted advisor to some of the world’s most prestigious brands. We’re excited to expand our global reach building on the momentum we’ve established in the US and Canada.” Grant Allaway, Group Managing Director, AD2ONE, said, “We’re extremely excited ShareThis chose AD2ONE as its exclusive partner for international expansion. ShareThis is the market leading sharing tool and the media mechanic brands choose in North America. We’re looking forward to opening the ShareThis platform to new territories and to offering brands and agencies the opportunity to own the audiences sharing content on key events such as the World Cup, Easter, London Fashion week and more.” ENDS
