The newly branded Marketplace has activated with major advertisers and content owners this year, sparking surge of virtual product placement in diverse media
NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, December 22, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Mirriad today announced that its Diverse Supplier Marketplace (previously called Multicultural Marketplace) has seen exponential growth in 2023 and is working with several partners to craft custom upfront packages. The Marketplace is the first-ever aggregate of Black, Hispanic, Asian and Pacific Islander (AAPI), LGBTQIA+, Women-owned and/or -targeted media suppliers, providing advertisers with a unique combination of diverse inventory, audiences at scale, and in-content advertising opportunities. Mirriad aims to play a crucial role as an industry enabler, aligning with the broader mission of redirecting media spend to diverse content owners and providing advertisers with opportunities to reach diverse audiences in contextual content environments.
Mirriad has built a fast-growing community of independent and diverse content owners, expanding its Diverse Supplier Marketplace by nearly 50% in 2023. Recently, Mirriad has welcomed powerhouse NEON16 and NTERTAIN STUDIOS, NGL/MiTu, and Loud And Live- Global Entertainment Company. Mirriad now works with 60+ media companies, half of which are diverse owned and/or diverse targeted.
Mirriad-run campaigns in 2023 with diverse suppliers spanned global music artists, leading social media platforms, original TV and streaming series, and premier sporting events. Mirriad experienced exponential growth in activations within the Diverse Supplier Marketplace such as those run with The Shade Room, Neon16, Culture Creative, Universal Music Latin, and Treehouse (the #1 South Asian record label). Major advertisers such as L’Oreal, P&G, Lexus, and PepsiCo worked closely with Mirriad to virtually place products, signage, and messaging that are thoughtfully inserted to create an authentic and contextually relevant experience through these campaigns. Several of these brands ran scaled multi-integration campaigns with diverse supply owners and creators to drive maximum exposure and reach.
