BrandVerge 5 for 5 - DoStuff Spotlight
BrandVerge 5 for 5: Curiosity, Partnership, & Learning to Say 'No'
For this edition of the BrandVerge 5 for 5, we caught up with Ross Bennett (Director of Business Development) from DoStuff.
DoStuff is an experience platform network comprised of 21 cities, powering locally-curated event guides to help answer the question: “What am I going to do tonight?"
Similar to BrandVerge, Ross (and DoStuff) like to shake things up by operating "against the grain". Users rely on them to provide the best stuff to DO in their city and Ross and team take a unique and authentic approach in providing advertisers the opportunity to get involved with that mission.

Digiday Profiles How BrandVerge Help’s Marketers and Publishers Connect
Yes, BrandVerge is the only platform that expedites premium media partnerships between publishers and advertisers. Our story is that we seek to upturn the tedious RFP process to introduce creativity and efficiency into partnerships, but what about the stories of our users? Our users are the foundation of our platform. Thus, today we are introducing “BrandVerge 5 for 5” where we ask five questions to our customers to highlight the mission of their brands as well as their endeavors to innovate their respective verticals of media to change the media industry and the world at large.
Industry Leaders from Twitter, Refinery29, and WaveMaker Join BrandVerge's Advisory Board
Marketers and publishers continue to try to bid goodbye to the RFP. But moving away from the traditional request-for-proposal process in favor of more direct outreach can favor better-known brands and media companies, leaving newer brands and niche publications on the outs. BrandVerge is trying to provide a way in through its matchmaking platform. But to make good on its mission, BrandVerge will need to strike a balance of attracting enough buyers and sellers to make the platform worth their time and money without becoming so overrun — especially by bigger brands and publishers — that it ends up replicating the problems that begat the platform.
BrandVerge appears to be unique in trying to establish an online marketplace for direct deals. None of the executives interviewed for this article were aware of similar platforms. The closest example appears to be Numerator, which was formerly called Brandtale and allows publishers to post past examples of branded content campaigns.”
AdExchanger Touts BrandVerge as a Tool for Faster & Easier Sponsored Content Deals
"Building and sustaining a brand’s awareness and image to drive purchase consideration remains a key component of growth for marketers. One way to accomplish this is through an association with content in a collaborative partnership with premium publishers. There is a strong need for a utility to assist media planners and buyers with obtaining up-to-date access to premium publisher content. That is what BrandVerge is: a single point of contact to access premium content, saving time and money from a mostly manual process," said Carl Fremont, President of Wavemaker. “BrandVerge is uniquely positioned to deliver the premium advertising marketplace with transparency and efficiency. I am honored to be on board and look forward to providing guidance on their continued innovation and contribution to the marketplace.”
Ad Fraud Still Plagues Digital Media's Supply Chain
“We are a nimble company, and we don’t have a media buyer on staff,” said Earthbound Brands marketing director Ryane Montanez. The small brand management agency doesn’t have a media team. “Before, it felt like reaching out to a black hole. Instead of going to 100 people on my own, BrandVerge helps me get connected directly with media companies.” Thanks for the amazing writeup @AdExchanger, and thanks to our amazing clients who continue to support the BV mission as we continue to make it faster and easier to create sponsored content deals!
