“Making into the Inc. 5000 two years in a row is a massive achievement for the Wrapify team.  Adding new products and taking the OOH industry further into the digital age with advancements in attribution and opening up the platform to transit media providers helps extend this recognition to the entire industry,” said James Heller, CEO of Wrapify. “2020 has undoubtedly been a rough year for the entire world and continuing to thrive in this environment is no small feat. We are honored to receive this valuable recognition two years in a row and we look forward to supporting our loyal brands, agencies, and OOH industry at large!”

Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.” The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held virtually from October 23 to 27, 2020. As always, speakers will include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.”

They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2019.

Boost brings attribution reporting, data visualization and multi-channel retargeting capabilities to transit outdoor advertising

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wrapify, the performance-driven ad tech platform for brands powered by OOH and the gig-economy, today announced a first-of-its-kind product for the transit media space with the launch of its Boost Platform, turning a moving out-of-home (OOH) ad placement into digital and physical retargeting with full attribution and measurement.

Historically, transit OOH and attribution has been difficult to measure. Boost encompasses all of the features that turn a moving OOH ad placement into digital and physical retargeting with full attribution and measurement. For the first time, offline-to-online advertising for transit OOH operators and fleet operators are able to access attribution and retargeting data in a dashboard online.

Preview of Wrapify’s Boost Platform

By leveraging Boost, brands can connect their fleet’s location data, create targeted audiences, extend the reach of their OOH ad placement and measure performance against custom conversion goals. Brands can also access attribution reporting from OOH exposure as well as retargeting reporting, OOH media measurement and data visualization.

“We are excited to enable our mobile billboard fleet with the powerful attribution and retargeting capabilities that Wrapify Boost provides,” said Jeff Griffing, CEO AllOver Media. “AllOver Media has been fortunate that over the last 18 years our mobile billboard customers have been very loyal based on their ROI. We’re now happy to pilot a program with Wrapify and their new tools that can help our customers enhance their media investments even further.”

Enabling branded vehicles with Wrapify’s Boost Platform can turbocharge existing branded fleet inventory of trucks, vans and corporate vehicles with multi-channel ‘Physical Retargeting’ and attribution.

“This powerful gravitas is unique to OOH, yet it’s no longer enough on its own. The industry must endeavor to prove itself with science,” says James Heller, CEO and Co-founder of Wrapify. “Luckily, the work we’ve done over the past five years on our own OOH platform created the opportunity to inform smarter attribution, retargeting and tracking for ROI for the rest of the industry. This is a game-changer for Wrapify and the transit OOH segment at large.”

“It is really exciting to see attribution technology persist across the OOH ecosystem,” said Udi Ledergor, CMO at Gong. “It helps demonstrate the value and ROI of OOH, which has always been a big challenge for marketers. It also helps bridge the gap between offline and online marketing, which we’ve all been trying to do for the better part of a decade.”

With the recent pandemic and recession in 2020, brands are looking for unique ways to hyper-target their ideal markets, not just out on the streets, but in targeted neighborhoods and homes as well. As brands have increasingly been returning to advertising outside of the home more than ever, Wrapify’s latest advertiser dashboard allows them to measure this medium digitally for effective monitoring and scaling. 

“Helping media strategists visualize campaign performance data in real-time is fundamental to informed decision making,” explains Kasper Koczab, OOH industry veteran. “With these new dashboard features, Wrapify is leading the way among OOH providers by giving brands the insights they need to make the most of their media investments.” 

Wrapify continues to innovate its digital OOH offering for brands and agencies with improved data visualization, retargeting, and OOH attribution metrics that are accessible online — a first-of-its-kind for a moving OOH placement. In addition to the updated and streamlined performance, Wrapify’s brand partners now have access to a multitude of new capabilities including Attribution Reporting from OOH Exposure, Retargeted Reporting, OOH Media Measurement and Data Visualization, and SWARM — Wrapify’s day-of-event route mapping and proof of performance photo access.

“The key to selling ads to brands is proof it works,” said Wrapify co-founder and CEO James Heller.  “Measuring and attributing OOH exposure should be as easy as measuring display or search. Our platform enables brands and agencies to measure campaigns by setting goals for online conversions, driving foot-traffic, or in-app activity. With our newest Dashboard updates to the platform, customizing your brand’s ROI for OOH is now possible.”

Deploys PSA on OOH Static+ Rideshare Topper, Wrapify to Match Donations 

San Diego, CA — June 22, 2020 — Wrapify, the performance-driven ad tech platform for brands powered by OOH and the gig economy, today announced a new campaign in support of equal civil rights and the San Diego NAACP chapter. With current events highlighting systemic racism around the country and calling for change, Wrapify hopes to use the OOH Static+ Rideshare Topper product as a means to promote the humanitarian message that black lives matter, with the first fleet of cars taking to San Diego’s streets on 18, June 2020. 

As such, Wrapify will use its extensive network of gig economy drivers to feature the message “Silence Is Not An Option” in an effort to promote positive change. They will donate all campaign profits to the local San Diego NAACP chapter as well as send users from the physical retargeting ads to their site. Additionally, should brands join the campaign, Wrapify will also donate the profits from these additional Static+ Rideshare Toppers to spread wider awareness.  

“In a season where the NAACP is asking everyone to be bolder than they’ve ever been to bring about change, Wrapify is showing leadership and getting the message out that change has to come and it starts with you,” said NAACP San Diego branch President Ms. Francine Maxwell.

Wrapify hopes to raise awareness of the current humanitarian crisis and recent deaths of black lives from police through the “Silence Is Not An Option” campaign, while supporting the local San Diego community. Wrapify’s Static+ Rideshare Topper is poised to hyper-target any region a brand or agency would choose, reaching nearly every neighborhood or desired city. 

“Silence is compliance, and given recent and past events, it’s more important than ever to band together as people — and companies — to spread the right messages,” said co-founder and CEO James Heller. “Being socially responsible and socially active is imperative to our company values, and we hope it is for others as well during this time.” 

Wrapify has already signed on its initial fleet of cars. To join the campaign and support racial equality , please visit wrapify.com or email equality@wrapify.com.

In an effort to further support the gig-economy during these unprecedented times, Wrapify is working with its brand partners to put even more cash into the pockets of Americans in need by launching the Delivery Drives Relief” Campaign.  

Rideshare use has dropped 70% since the onset of the social distancing measures related to COVID-19*. But many of these drivers have since transitioned to delivery.  Leveraging delivery services like DoorDash, Grubhub and Uber Eats not only allows for social distancing, it keeps local restaurants, grocers and other local businesses open and able to pay their employees who depend on the income. 

Wrapify is teaming up with its brand partners to launch an 8-week campaign on 1,900 gig-work/delivery vehicles nationwide, including some of the hardest-hit markets** such as Las Vegas, Savannah, GA, and Atlantic City, NJ, to name a few. 

To ensure each brand partner will have an equal share of voice by participating in this campaign, Wrapify will rotate the brands through each of the 10 logo areas on these “Wrapified” vehicles. 

All profits from the Delivery Drives Relief Campaign will go directly into the pockets of participating delivery drivers, in addition to the driver’s earnings that they would normally receive by driving with Wrapify –an estimated $2 million

Brands have the opportunity to put their dollars to work in an effort to stimulate the American economy and more specifically, the working class, all while using social distancing measures to help “flatten the curve”. 

Brands not only benefit from the Out-of-home (OOH) measurement and exposure, they also benefit from Wrapify’s retargeting capabilities to other digital channels including Connected TV (CTV), Mobile and Display retargeting.

As 2020 is now well underway, we notice that increasingly more everyday people are signing up to work in the gig economy. Everything from food delivery with Postmates, alcohol delivery from Saucy, groceries from Amazon Fresh, and of course, rideshare driving from Lyft and Uber. 

At the same time in our ad-spend landscape, OOH (out-of-home) advertising is finding itself in a large resurgence – just ask Nielsen about how wrapped vehicles are the most noticeable moving OOH ads and look at the allocation of marketing spend of brands and their agencies in the recent months. 

Some drivers are finding ways to make this or a combination of these options their full-time jobs, and others whenever they decide to make time for it. Even with those part-time “gigsters”, they may even still have a regular workday commute as well. This means these people are amongst the most frequent drivers of anybody on the road.

Starting with professional vehicle wraps back in 2015, Wrapify has also launched its brand new product, The Static+ Rideshare Topper.  Wrapify’s rideshare offering has the largest geographic footprint, able to serve brands nationwide. 

Wrapify, providing OOH advertising for some of the world’s biggest brands like Pepsi, The MLB, AT&T, and General Mills, has been growing its robust network of certified drivers throughout the entire US since 2015. This network contains about 280,000 and counting heading into 2020. With up to 40% of them being rideshare drivers, brands are jumping at the opportunity to advertise on these cars and all cars through Wrapify to maximize their reach and spend for OOH advertising. 

What’s more, is that with Wrapify you get a precise measurement of impressions, digital attribution and multi-channel retargeting ads after devices nearby are exposed. Dead are the days of “estimated impressions” based on trends or historical data. This attribution allows brands to see where the actions or results of user activity another step past simply measuring an impression. 

Wrapify just took an OOH ad and made it digital, the ad that keeps on advertising and retargeting.

The “ridetop” or “rideshare topper” industry is exploding more than ever after continuous growth, with a reputation of billions of dollars in spending on taxi tops for instance. The spending on advertisements on these is even more in densely populated areas like New York City and San Francisco. Now, any brand can select any US market, and deploy their ads on top of cars easily through Wrapify.
