Uplifting Diversity in Media
Mediavine and TripleLift help amplify overshadowed and overlooked voices by providing access to opportunities to build successful, sustainable businesses.
In the September 2023 Industry Benchmark Report, Jounce Media determined that 77% of DE&I inventory evaluated for the study was exclusively represented by Mediavine.
Prior to the Jounce study, Mediavine had already dedicated substantial resources to fostering equitable ad spend among diverse site owners, and formally announced their program last fall.
Uplift by Mediavine is a community of talented, passionate independent business owners exclusively represented by Mediavine. The marketplace empowers advertisers to keep their commitments to diversity and equity by making it easy to identify and spend with underrepresented voices at scale.
AAPI-owned, Black-owned, Disability-owned, Hispanic-owned, LGBTQIA+-owned, and Woman-owned; these self-identified publishers create the invaluable lifestyle content that everyone wants to read.
Working with TripleLift means access to all of Mediavine’s Uplift inventory—plus our own network of diverse-owned inventory, UNREP. Learn more about the UNREP curated deal. And because TripleLift is NMSDC certified as a minority-owned business, you can count all spend towards your diversity commitments.
Our Conversation with Mediavine
What’s something unique about Mediavine that you want readers to know?
We’re exclusive with our publisher domains. If a site is on Mediavine, you cannot access it or the inventory anywhere else.
How are your SSP partners differentiating themselves?
We enjoy having in-depth conversations like the Publisher Speaker Series here at TripleLift. It’s important for us to keep in touch with our SSP partners outside of scheduled meetings so we stay in the loop with what our partners are working on or struggling with. We’re here to offer support and create opportunities for our valued partners.
Any advice on how SSPs can find success with DSP marketplaces?
Don’t focus only on the top 3 DSPs in the market. There are plenty of DSPs and specialized niche companies built on top of DSPs to work with that provide value to advertisers.
What are your favorite Mediavine sites?
- Vince’s favorite: “One of our owned and operated Mediavine sites, The Hollywood Gossip”
- Erin’s favorite: “I don’t cook, but my husband does, so I send him a lot of our food sites.”
- Michelle’s favorite: “I’ve actually met the owner of Ask Chef Dennis. He’s the sweetest and made his blog to share recipes with his students. He’s the best.”
