Posted on December 06, 2017

With our own technology we offer our customers the management of social media campaigns on all social platforms. In the future our technology should be used for KPI-based campaign optimization on display, video and within addressable TV.

esome unites proprietary technology and holistic customer service under one roof. We optimize KPI-based social media campaigns to realize our clients’ advertising activities most efficiently and successfully. Over 200 national and international companies – half of them DAX-listed – already count on our expertise.

Christof Wahl, digital managing director and COO ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE: “Holding the majority share in esome, we strengthen our line-up within the ad-tech field and extend our expertise with KPI-based products in the very appealing social advertising market. The esome technology will enable performance-driven and therefore more effective addressable-TV campaigns.”
