With the addition of several major new publishers, advances to our Hydra(TM) publisher toolset and continued success of our proprietary mobile, video and desktop ad units, we are seeing major gains across our entire company. We can't thank our employees enough for this continuing success."
With the creation of the vSlider(TM) video unit as well as Mobile, Tablet and Desktop impact units that are always viewable to users, publishers like Examiner.com, Answers.com and several others have been able to make more ad revenue on their sites. The design of these units enables more programmatic inventory to run in addition to standard display units. Glenn Highcove from Examiner.com said, "Q1Media is a great partner that delivers quality ad products that have allowed Examiner.com to maximize and reach record revenues across all platforms."
A lot of this success can also be attributed to Q1Media's growth in the video sector. Over the last several months Q1Media has moved from 9th to 4th on the comScore Video Metrix report for unique audience reach.
