Michaël Bourguignon, Revenue and Digital Director of the La Dépêche du Midi group, said: “We are delighted to collaborate with Taboola and to benefit from their unique tools on the market. By developing a test and learn approach, we were the first French publisher to test the new Taboola Newsroom tools and adapt our systems in this period of crisis. This allowed us to adapt our content by segmenting the reading experiences on our sites by type of user while offering the most engaging content possible. One way to improve the user experience of our subscribed or engaged readers, while promoting native advertising. We are thus continuing our work of targeting and finer-tuning readers for a more relevant, value-added experience.”
“We are proud of the confidence of the La Dépêche du Midi Group and their ability to innovate. The renewal of our exclusive partnership testifies to the trust of our technology to allow for increased personalization, which benefits the user experience and opens up new sources of revenue. As another long term example of a publisher partner, we are grateful to expand their ability to boost subscribers through insights,” said Adam Singolda, Founder and CEO of Taboola.
