Continued Export Growth

This year’s ceremony at The Culture Center in the State Capitol Complex marked Direct Online Marketing’s second participating year. The company picked up an award for entering into South Africa, primarily through offering promoted Twitter products to South African advertising agencies and businesses.
“Clients both domestically and internationally began expressing interest in Twitter advertising
in 2012. We began offering promoted Twitter products to South Africa that year as local companies are not able to open contracts with Twitter on their own,” according to Direct Online Marketing President, Justin Seibert. “With the major changes to targeting and access Twitter has rolled out this year, we’re receiving even more interest from advertisers in the U.S. and abroad,” he added.
