Membrana Media's Strategic Approach and Value Offer

Before partnering with Membrana Media, Riovagas faced challenges typical of platforms not primarily focused on news content. Finding suitable partners for video advertising proved a challenging task. Membrana Media recognized the potential in Riovagas' unique niche and quickly established itself as a key player in monetizing video ads.

Riovagas always tests new media partners, but Membrana Media's initial proposal, seeking to guarantee a minimum profitability to make the tests viable, was fundamental for them to understand how the company was committed to seeking new partners in Brazil.

Membrana Media offers two essential assets - a strong commercial sense and impressive technical expertise. While Riovagas primarily focuses on job vacancies, Membrana Media's contribution to content quality lies in the creation of high-quality videos. These videos serve as a powerful brand reinforcement tool, boosting Riovagas' presence in their niche and brings reliability to the site's users.

First-Month Triumph

In a remarkably short span of one month, Membrana Media secured its position as Riovagas' principal monetization partner, exclusively responsible for video ads in the instream video ad format. 

Augusto Schaffer, CEO of Riovagas, stated:

"In a direct way: everything is excellent. The service is unbelievable: fast and efficient. The relationship is transparent and focused on the best technical principles. Payments are regular and on time. It is difficult to imagine a more productive partnership."

"The videos produced by Membrana Media have excellent quality. They are an important reinforcement for the presence of our brand in the segment in which we operate”, added Augusto.

Tech Support and Communication with Membrana Media

To ensure effective communication and coordination, Riovagas and Membrana Media maintain a direct line of contact. This seamless communication channel ensures that both parties remain aligned and informed. Membrana Media provides constant support, with positioning recommendations and display frequency tests to seek the best delivery rate and highest RPM.

Riovagas has ambitious plans for the future, including the operation of new websites aimed at testing monetization strategies in the news segment. Plans include the launch of a nationwide website, and Riovagas intends to have Membrana Media as a crucial partner in this project.
