Content discovery platform Dable establishes branch office in Indonesia

Books and Publishing, Telecom & Internet

The content discovery platform Dable is picking up the pace in its entry into the Indonesian market by forging partnerships with major Indonesian media corporations.

Dable, a member company of the K-ICT Born2Global Centre, signed service partnerships with half of Indonesia’s top 20 media corporations (Tempo, Republika, Kontan, JPNN, etc.), securing local inventory. Dable stated that it is currently attracting local Indonesian and global advertisers also seeking to enter the Indonesian market.

Based in South Korea, Dable utilizes real-time big data processing and personalization technologies to provide two major services: “Dable Content Recommendation” and “Dable Native Ad,” which recommends individually-tailored content and advertisements (e.g. “Content You May Like”).

Dable Content Recommendation provides visitors to the websites of media companies with individually-tailored news and other content. The service aims to increase content usage as well as traffic flow. Through analysis of the consumed website content, Dable Native Ad ascertains user interests and shows them related advertisements. Dable’s high advertisement performance is the result of decreased animosity towards ads that are in formats similar to regular content.

Since its founding in 2015, Dable has grown rapidly through partnerships with major Korean media corporations. It enjoys an 80-percent market share in Korea, but with its outstanding personalization technology and high performance, Dable is currently expanding into the greater Asian market. The company’s entry into Indonesia was spearheaded by its Global Business Manager Amalia Rasyida (a seasoned digital marketing expert), and the recruitment of personnel with extensive experience.

Rasyida expressed her expectations for the company by stating, “Right now, Programmatic advertisements, which provide digital ads and tools, are in the spotlight. But the native ad platform applied with Dable’s personalization technology is in its infancy. Dable is now sophisticated enough to defeat top global companies in the technological competition arena. Dable is using its technology to expand its Indonesian partnered inventory at the astonishing speed of over 50 percent growth each month. Dable seeks to serve as a leading content discovery platform in Indonesia.”

On September 12, Dable will host media and digital marketing representatives at the Indonesia Native Ad Conference (INAC) at Plaza Kuningan’s COCOWORK.

STACK and VICE Media partner to launch FREE, the next evolution of the successful VICE Money platform

STACK will also become title sponsor of Daily VICE, VICE Canada’s most watched Mobile News And Culture Show

 

Today, VICE Media, Canada’s leading youth media company and digital studio, announced a partnership with STACK, a smarter way to manage your money, to deliver multi-platform content that bridges the gap between lifestyle and finances. The partnership marks the launch of a new platform, FREE, and will see STACK take on the title sponsorship of Daily VICE.

“VICE and STACK are both dedicated to disruption in their respective fields” says Dominique Delport, VICE Media’s President of International and Chief Revenue Officer. “Our mutual goal is to reinvent the relationship that youth have with money and we are excited to be providing content dedicated to that.”

Built on the idea that money is about much more than dollars and cents, FREE—MONEY BY VICE is a new platform that presents stories about spending, saving, young entrepreneurship and more to a youth audience who are ready to have life-changing conversations about money.

FREE is the evolution of VICE’s award-winning MONEY section, which was launched in 2016 to make the financial landscape more approachable for Canadian millennials. It has since grown to be a leading, youth-focused destination for trusted news and analysis of the world of money, both online and mobile.

STACK will also be the title sponsor for Daily VICE, one of Canada’s most watched digital media franchises. Daily VICE will now expand its editorial mandate to include a weekly money show and deliver content on a wider range of topics that focus on the passion points that money allows you to buy: music experiences, fashion, food, art and travel.

“We’re excited to find such an amazing partner for two of our most successful sponsored editorial programs,” says Shawn Phelan, VP Business Development, VICE Media. “Daily VICE launched in 2015 and has grown organically from a few hundred thousand video views a month, to achieving as high as 12 million views a month. Meanwhile, the overwhelming success of our VICE Money section on VICE News, which included 3 MIA Awards capped by a gold for Best in Finance, led us to create FREE, a standalone site for all things money.”

STACK is a smarter way to spend, save or share your money, fee-free and straight from your mobile or with your STACK Prepaid Mastercard®. Young Canadians have been underserved by their banks for too long and STACK is here to change that. Designed to reimagine the way Canadians feel about their finances, STACK delivers consumer-centric rewards through an intuitive experience, empowering the user and helping them to reach their goals, no matter what they are.

We know that young people have huge goals that they want to achieve, but right now there’s a gap between their financial know-how and their potential. We need to have conversations that demystify money to tackle stigma head on, and that’s exactly what STACK is here to do,” says Miro Pavletic, co-founder and CEO of STACK. “STACK is the future of money and we’re going to help people create their own futures with honest, hard facts about finance and stories told by people who care about the same things they do.”
