Podaddies, a new startup, strives to be “the premier enabler of quality, highly measurable advertising for video publishers and the sites that host their videos…” According to their website, Podaddies provides technology and services that “empowers marketers and agencies, video publishers, and video consumers to work together successfully and profitably.”
Podaddies’ goal is to “enable new video and advertising networks in which viewers everywhere can watch channels of videos anywhere they want for free, with appropriate, targeted, contextual advertising that they can help to specify.”
GigaOM recently talked about Podaddies, saying that “their name had me reaching for the purple pill…” OM goes on to say that “They seem to be pretty high on the online video advertising market, but like we keep saying â€¦ Google (and Yahoo) are the only big winners when it comes to any form of digital advertising. Given that Google has cornered the market on sales people, we get a feeling that they might be headed for the victory lane when it comes to online video. Like Podaddies, all online video advertising start-ups will have to come to terms with those pesky sales executive issues.”
