Goodway Group Selects FreeWheel As First Video-Only Ad Partner

Goodway Group

Today, Goodway Group, a leading, data-driven and technology-enabled digital media and marketing services firm, announced its first, video-only partnership for premium video ad inventory with FreeWheel, a global technology platform for the television advertising industry. The two companies are teaming up to help further scale and open up access to premium, connected television ad inventory for marketers. They are doing so to help tackle some of today’s most pressing industry challenges: access to premium, brand-safe ad inventory, a need for greater transparency into the ad buying process, as well as greater media efficiencies. This partnership aims to address several of those challenges by offering publishers working with Goodway Group many key benefits: First, they can tap into FreeWheel’s direct connection – and access – to a large array of premium video ad inventory. Secondly, publishers will now have greater transparency into the ad buying process, as FreeWheel has one of the industry’s most direct, efficient and simplest paths to premium video ad inventory. Lastly, per the partnership, Goodway Group has first access to test out new betas and innovations, so that its clients can stay differentiated and nimble in today’s complex ad marketplace. “As the TV advertising ecosystem continues to fragment and evolve, we sought a partner with a steady commitment to infusing simplicity, transparency and innovation and FreeWheel clearly stood out,” said Andrea Kwiatek, Director, Partnerships, Goodway Group. “FreeWheel has consistently driven greater innovation and better business results for their clients, and this is fueled by a deep understanding of the challenges that the industry faces today. We look forward to working together with them to help raise the bar for TV advertising for our clients and across the ecosystem.” The partnership comes at a time when, as more video investments shift toward programmatic activation, marketers want even greater transparency on advertising ROI. This partnership aims to address that demand by providing a more enhanced way to streamline marketers’ workflow, thereby allowing greater insight into where and how media dollars are being spent. The savings that are derived from that improved workflow, in turn, are invested back into the TV ad marketplace, allowing marketers to drive even more ad results. “At FreeWheel, we are challenging ourselves, our clients, and the broader marketplace to treat professionally produced commercial break ad inventory different from standard banner ads. This means we need to find innovative ways to make the TV ad buying process simpler and more direct, predictable and effective to buy programmatically,” said Jon Mansell, VP, Head of U.S. Programmatic Demand, FreeWheel. “These are the same guiding principles that are powering our partnership with Goodway and our goal is to help better improve the industry, on all of these pillars, by teaming up with them.” About Goodway Group Goodway Group is a leading data-driven and technology-enabled digital media and marketing services firm with teams in the U.S. and the U.K. Our diverse team of digital strategists, media practitioners, technologists and data scientists have won the most prestigious awards for innovative marketing technology, impactful work and inclusive remote-first places to work including being honored as a multiyear Ad Age Best Places to Work, AdExchanger’s Best Use of Technology by an Agency Award and three MarTech Breakthrough Awards.

LIVE WORLD-WIDE TELETHON TO HELP FIGHT HOMELESSNESS AND BENEFIT THE LAS VEGAS RECUE MISSION DEBUTS LEADING UP TO THE BIG GAME

YourUpdateTV

Las Vegas Rescue Mission announced today that they will play host to the 1st Annual Alvin James, Approaching Life Under the Bridge Telethon on Wednesday, February 7th, 2024, from The Chapel, at their Las Vegas Rescue Mission location. This groundbreaking special event will be hosted by actor, musician, and former NFL player Julian Horton, and is sponsored by Door2Door Anywhere.com. All proceeds from the on-line telethon will go directly to the Las Vegas Rescue Mission as they have been recognized for the impactful work they are doing in the Las Vegas area. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://vimeo.com/910236902/36f170d396?share=copy The Alvin James, Approaching Life Under the Bridge Telethon is the brainchild of musician / songwriter and Executive Producer McKinley Horton who wanted to take his passion for fighting homelessness in the US to the next level and at the same time, honor one of his mentors, the late Alvin James. “Alvin James inspired me to look deeply into myself and my desire to help those in need it in any way I could, and with his recent passing last fall, I decided that the time was right “says Horton. The concept Mr. Horton came up with was to create a meaningful live event that not only includes an array of entertainers, but to also focus on the great work local non-profits are doing and try to shed light on their great work, the staff and volunteers that they have, and help them raise funds to benefit their programs and increase the impact they have on those who rely on them and the services they provide. “We all know how hard it is for local non-profits that deal with the homeless and other members of the underserved communities nation-wide face when it comes to financial support, so we decided to make sure 100 percent of all proceeds go directly to the local non-profit so that they can do what they do best which is help the people who need it.” Horton added. The result of that thinking was to honor the non-profit that is selected by The Alvin James, Approaching Life Under the Bridge selection committee, to coincide with a time of year where everyone is focused on an annual event and there is no event bigger than the annual big game. “As a sports fan and the father of a former NFL player, the committee and I came up with the idea of doing our telethon during the week before the big game in the city that the big game takes place” said Horton whose son, actor, musician and former NFLer, Julian Horton, will be one of the telethons host “so its so great to be partnering with the Las Vegas Rescue Mission, who the committee felt deserved the spotlight, for the amazing work we got to see first hand when we visited them “ Las Vegas Rescue Mission CEO, Heather Engle is super supportive of the goals of the Alvin James, Approaching Life Under the Bridge Telethon and with the Las Vegas Rescue Mission (LVRM ) as its partner, in what will now be an annual event with the 2nd Annual Telethon taking place in New Orleans site of the next Big Game, Engle and the staff at LVRM have also played a big role in getting the event off the ground. “Anytime we can get to share our mission statement with a wide audience we are always thankful and willing to help. This event will not only help people here in Las Vegas, but we hope to shed a brighter light on what we all know is as a major problem world-wide.We serve over 1,000 meals a day and have programs that not only deal with homelessness, but other important issues like addiction and mental health so we are very happy to be a part of this amazing event “ Engle noted Door2Door Anywhere.com, one of the world’s leading transportation companies, led by CEO Rattan Joea, is the sole sponsor of this years event and as Joea explains, the brand couldn’t be happier to be involved with the Alvin James, Approaching Life Under the Bridge Telethon for more than just brand exposure “For me and Door2Door Anywhere.com this isn’t about brand exposure, it’s about helping people, which has always been a part of my personal brand as well as our DOOR2Door Anywhere identity. We transport people all over the world and have a real worldview of the issues humanity is facing so to be able to play a role in helping the homeless and other underserved members of communities everywhere is vital to me..Our sponsorship of this 1st annual event is just the beginning of what we think will be a huge event going forward that will help people so we are all in and will be with the Telethon in Vegas this year, and then on to New Orleans next year, “ said Joea Host Julian Horton, (whose acting credits include a featured role in the hit film, National Champions, along with TV credits on Tyler Perry’s “Bruh”, Tough Love Atlanta, and others) didn’t need to be recruited by his father, his desire and passion to help change the lives of those less fortunate started at an early age. “ My passion has always been about helping those less fortunate than me …I was lucky, I’ve he had support throughout my life and I know how important it is to have that and when I see all the hurt, harm and pain going down on the streets these days as well as the struggle those without homes, support, and love face every minute of their lives…I just cant sit back and act like it isn’t there so I’m asking EVERYONE out there to tune in” For more information about the live stream and to donate go to www.vegasrescue.org and click on the events tab for THE ALVIN JAMES, APPROACHING LIFE UNDER THE BRIDGE TELETHON About the Las Vegas Rescue Mission: The Las Vegas Rescue Mission (LVRM) was founded in 1970 by a pastor and six businessmen who had calling to help those who were homeless and hungry.
