The Partnership Goals.


Deliver alternative revenue stream to Next's sport sites

We deployed WINR’s AdGate™ formats across both desktop and mobile audiences across 3x sites to generate maximum coverage.



Generate ongoing engagement & support

We used AdGate’s unique Info Modal tool to educate readers on how to support publishers like nextmedia through brief engagements with sponsoring advertisers (improving the CPM yields and campaign fill rates).

Every AdGate™ explains to users:

  1. What it is
  2. What it does
  3. How often it will display - and
  4. Why the reader is seeing it

In their words.

WINR has been a great partner in helping bring consistent, incremental revenue to Next’s sports titles over the last 9 months.

We’ve found sustained interaction rates with AdGate™ over the period and are keen to introduce new advertisers to our audiences as WINR expands.
