Adapex Onboards Digital Trends Media Group to Grow Their Programmatic Revenue

November 1, 2021

For Immediate Release

October 28, 2021, NY, NY Adapex, Inc. (Adapex) is excited to announce that it will be partnering with Digital Trends Media Group (DTMG) to help grow its programmatic revenue across media brands and flagship site, Adapex will work closely with the existing Digital Trends Media Group operations team to implement the Adapex m4 Tech Suite™.

“We are excited to be working with Digital Trends Media Group to grow revenue across their portfolio of sites,” said Andrew Moskowitz, Chief Revenue Officer of Adapex. “The opportunity to bring our award-winning technology suite to DTMG media brands is significant, given the scale and reach their network represents,” Moskowitz adds.

Adapex began working with Digital Trends Media Group on a test basis by implementing Merlin™, a custom header bidding solution and a component of their full-service m4 Tech Suite. Merlin™ immediately delivered significantly higher results than the header bidding solution DTMG was previously using. Adapex was also able to offer DTMG access to Matrix™, a unified dashboard that gives the DTMG team and partner sites near real-time analytics and reporting across all of their affiliate accounts by network, and metrics down to the ad unit level.   

“While the vast majority of our inventory is sold direct, like every other publisher we need to monetize our unsold inventory,” says Jonathon Shaevitz, SVP of Strategy, Data & Partnerships for Digital Trends. “We were thrilled with the revenue uplift straight out of the gate.  And with the Adapex team making ongoing optimizations, we are seeing improvements on every KPI, with a significant increase in fill rates and RPM. Additionally, we are receiving demand from premium advertisers we have not worked with before, which is opening up new direct relationships. We couldn’t be more pleased.”

Adapex services include full ad stack management, monetization strategy, yield optimizations, quality control, and compliance. In the past year, they have added numerous new features to their industry-leading Adapex m4 Tech Suite™ which is composed of:

  • Merlin™: custom header bidder wrapper
  • Magma™: on page console
  • Matrix™: real-time analytics
  • Magnify™: automatically and seamlessly connects to multiple ID solutions
