Playwire Media to serve as exclusive ad rep for Gameinformer.com
DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. – Playwire Media, the largest online representation firm for reaching gaming and entertainment enthusiasts online, today announced a new partnership with Gameinformer.com, the largest digital publication in the world and owned by GameStop Corp., a family of specialty retail brands that makes the most popular technologies affordable and simple.
Playwire Media has been selected to exclusively represent all advertising inventory for Gameinformer.com, the largest digital publication in the world and companion website to the fourth largest consumer publication in the U.S.
“The Game Informer brand compliments Playwire’s extensive line-up of game sites within their network,” said Rob Borm, Associate Publisher, Game Informer. “In balance, Playwire’s seasoned sales group, proprietary technologies and market reach opens unique opportunities for brands to engage with Game Informer’s loyal audience.”
This partnership follows last month’s news announcing Playwire Media as the exclusive provider for non-endemic media for GameStop TV, GameStop’s in-store video network that provides entertainment programming in the form of GameStop exclusives within the context of games while consumers wait in line to checkout, increasing dwell time and reducing perceived wait time.
“The growing partnership between Playwire and GameStop is a natural fit, further uniting the largest online ad representation firm for reaching gaming and entertainment enthusiasts and the largest digital publication devoted to gaming,” said Jayson Dubin, CEO, Playwire Media. “We’re consistently seeking to provide our brand partners with new audiences, while driving incremental demand for publishing partners like Gameinformer.com.”
