Monetizing Retail and Branded Content Websites

Mediative maximizes your site’s potential and expands margins beyond a simple product sales model.

The emerging paradigm is for retailers to market their sites as media properties to advertisers. Retail sites now have mass traffic and hyper-targeted audiences with intent to purchase – a proven formula for all advertisers.

Mediative’s ad network creates a unique combination of media sales and retail marketing to align products and services with a retailer’s brand and online customer experience. This creates value and provides a distinct advantage compared to traditional online ad networks.

Our extensive experience enables us to produce the right ad program to suit each individual retailer’s needs. The Mediative team is trained to understand the creative requirements for banners and align advertising with targeted advertisers and promotional cycles. We develop campaigns to increase brand loyalty and help uninitiated audiences learn more about your products and services.
