Putting Peer Recommendations to Work

Discover the power of branded paid media thoughtfully orchestrated together with social and promotional initiatives.

Oracle, Flite (formerly Widgetbox) & IDG
Nano Nano

Discover how to continually engage your audience with optimized interactive content.

Looking to go beyond a traditional display campaign, IDG partnered with Flite to produce a new ad format – the Nano Site unit – which delivers an interactive micro-site like experience for Oracle. Audiences were able to read white papers, watch video tutorials, and access other interactive content within a single ad unit. Using their nano site, Oracle was able to get their content closer to the consumer and capture engagement from the “non click through” audience that usually bypass ads.
