FoundLocally.com Media Inc, has announced that it has agreed to have Casale Media represent its online advertising, changing from 24/7 RealMedia after a ten year long relationship. FoundLocally.com Media publishes the 30 FoundLocally.com community information portals, the popular TransCanada Highway.com travel site, and the MovingInCanada.com real estate & relocation website. These sites attract a million visitors a month,
“Casale Media is doing an excellent job in representing Canadian websites to Canadian advertisers,” says FoundLocally.com Media’s General Manager. While several formerly Canadian ad networks (including FoundLocally’s former ad network 24/7 RealMedia) and most foreign-owned networks have focused on selling high-volume ads on US websites, Casale has shown strong success in connecting Canadian publishers, Canadian audiences and Canadian advertisers. “Foundlocally.com greatly complements our current Canadian media offerings by providing a regionally targeted audience base through its collection of premium local online communities,” says Casale Media’s Director of Publisher Relationships, Alex Gardner.
The FoundLocally.com community information web sites [http://FoundLocally.com] integrate a business directory, with free listings for local businesses and community groups, and also provides free categories, job postings, news releases, events postings, and sales & coupons. Consumers can also post their reviews & ratings for all kinds of businesses, not just restaurants.
The MovingInCanada.com site [http://MovingInCanada.com] covers the real estate and relocation sector, and the TransCanadaHighway.com website [http://TransCanada Highway.com] provides itineraries detailing over 10,000 natural & man-made features along Canada’s national highway. FoundLocally.com Media also publishes a SEO and web marketing blog [http://blog.FoundLocally.com].
The sites are designed not to be “sticky” in the standard Social Media sense, but to provide important information with as few mouse-clicks as possible, filtered to the user’s specific needs. Says Mark Ruthenberg,“that’s why we say, it’s the web site for people who have a life, and want to get on with it. It’s the perfect tool for those with busy lives. “
POSTSCRIPT: Jan 1, 2016 FoundLocally terminated its agreements with Toronto-based Casale Media (now New York City-based Index Exchange) after they changed their ad serving technology to “programmatic” which dramatically reduced publisher earnings.
