As part of its new digital direction, Summit Media, the Philippines’ leading digital lifestyle network, has entered into a partnership with Bent Pixels Asia (BPA), the leading revenue accelerator for premium YouTube creators in Asia.
The recently announced tie-up will help Summit Media monetize the pre-roll ad inventory of its digital magazines’ YouTube channels.
The strategic partnership allows Summit Media and BPA to offer advertisers reserved media, an advertising solution that lets brands exclusively run their pre-roll video ads on Summit Media’s YouTube Channels, guaranteeing a 100% SOV (share of voice) for a given period of time. Through reserved media, advertisers can effectively “own” Summit Media’s sought-after, quality audience and ad inventory on the platform.
Commenting on the partnership, Lisa Gokongwei-Cheng, Summit Media President, said, “Summit Media is very excited to be a partner of Bent Pixels Asia to sell our YouTube inventory directly to advertisers. Both groups have always stood for innovation in a rapidly changing industry, and we look forward to helping our clients reach their goals together."
"We are excited to offer brands the opportunity to reach the quality and premium audiences of Summit Media on YouTube through our reserved media solutions. With the content expertise of both BPA and Summit combined, we will continue to grow the network's reach on the platform to cater to larger audiences that will be valuable for brands to target with premium media-buying opportunities," said Erwin Razon, General Manager of BPA Philippines.
Summit Media's YouTube channels, including Cosmo.ph, Esquire Philippines, PEP.ph, Preview, SPIN.ph, Spot.ph, Top Gear Philippines, and Yummy.ph, among others, will be onboarded onto BPA's network of premium YouTube creators. BPA is part of Hepmil Media Group, a leading technology-driven media network that owns PGAG, the country's leading comedy content platform.
BPA will also provide YouTube channel development programs to Summit Media, including workshops, best practices, and tools to help the company sustainably grow the reach and subscriber base of its brands' channels and produce quality content to engage their audiences.
