The holidays are right around the corner. Family, friends, time away from work… and ads. The holidays are a time when brands need to find ways of standing out, and capturing every transaction moment possible. That’s where interactive media comes in.
Adding interactivity to content shortens a consumer's path-to-purchase dramatically, and increases the likelihood of a conversion. It enables an opportunity for a brand to tell an emotional story, educate, and convert consumers all in one moment. We've built a list of partners that do an exceptional job of driving user engagement through unique interactive media.
We’ve focused “interactivity” on the unit itself. It’s worth noting that almost all gaming and metaverse media partners offer some form of interactivity. To learn about those partners, check out our Gaming & Metaverse blog post.
Interactivity can also come in the form of shoppability. To read more about partners with that capability, check out our Shoppable Media post.

Aki Technologies allows brands, retailers, and agencies to reach people by targeting pivotal moments in the consumer journey with personalized advertising. Aki is a managed service that dynamically tailors ads by a whole range of data signals from weather patterns, to regions, to buying preferences. In short, much more relevant dynamically served messaging.
What we love: Aki is a unique media partner that has been perfecting moment targeting for a while now. Aki's ability to serve media to consumers that are engaged in a moment that directly relates to a brand’s use case has shown to be extremely effective. One of our favorite benefits is their ability to know what type of media format a consumer would be most receptive to. In real time, it uses data cues to serve an ad that is prime for the moment. That means the ad gets served at the best moment as well as in the ideal format for that moment. As a quick example, someone who ended their jog in the park is going to be more receptive to a short video ad for a bottled water company than someone laying in bed.
