OneSpot Transforms Your Content Into Ads People Want to Click On
AUSTIN, Texas --(Business Wire)--
If you created content, and it didn't benefit your business, did it even
a content advertising company, today opens its platform giving marketers
more power and control over distributing and more efficiently monetizing
corporate and external content. The company has also secured $1.5
million in funding from RSL Venture Partners, 500 Startups, Ralph Mack,
Mike Maples, Sr., and Josh Baer, among others.

goals such as customer engagement, lead generation, downloads, and
sales. Ads are generated from content, and then OneSpot utilizes

OneSpot can use company-generated content, as well as positive external
content like social media, reviews, and news articles to create ads.
After ads are generated, OneSpot's proprietary algorithm uses big data

traffic sources. OneSpot continuously optimizes to ensure maximum

"Over $16 billion will be spent on digital content in 2012 - blogs,
reviews, videos, how-to tips, whitepaper, webinars, and more. For every
piece of content your business wants people to see, you should have an
associated distribution strategy to drive desired business outcomes:
lead generation and nurturing, promoting reviews, or brand awareness,"
Cohen, CEO and Founder of OneSpot. "No distribution channel is as
ubiquitous as online advertising. We see a tremendous opportunity to
help businesses monetize all their content using the power, data
intelligence, and infrastructure of online advertising to deliver it."

"A content strategy is something we always thought we had prior to
working with OneSpot. Previously we put out a piece of content through
social media, our blog, or on our site and hoped we received some
traction, now with OneSpot we can get a piece of content in front of a
ton of eyeballs on day one and then use the data to start building
audience and re-target with relevant follow-up content," said Koechel.
"OneSpot has been able to give us a ROI on display ads that we would
have never thought possible and we found OneSpot really enabled us to
come full circle with our strategy. They are definitely the missing link
in our 360 degree approach to digital marketing and are just as valuable
as PPC and complementary to every other marketing channel we use."
