Sahil here from AdStage. Today, I am excited to announce that AdStage has been acquired by TapClicks!
First, to our customers, AdStage will continue to operate normally but now with more resources than we’ve ever had to take our products and technology to the next level. We’ll have some exciting new offers specifically for AdStage customers to follow in the coming days.
Second, to our partners, we would not have made it to where we are without standing on the shoulders of giants that we built incredibly strong partnerships and relationships with. We were fortunate to partner with some of the world’s largest technology companies in meaningful ways that accelerated our business dramatically. We look forward to reaching out to all of you in the next few days to show you what AdStage + TapClicks means for our businesses, product roadmaps, and most importantly, our joint customers.
Third, the AdStage team has joined TapClicks to lead its efforts around Marketing Intelligence, which includes extending the AdStage product suite by building even more technology around insights, recommendations, forecasting, and the ability to take action on one’s data. With access to over 200 data sources through TapClicks, AdStage products will deliver tremendous value to marketers at both brands and agencies who crunch critical marketing data from a few to hundreds of sources and systems.
Jason and I founded AdStage back in 2012 with a mission to help marketers understand every $1 spent and enable them to spend the next $1 effectively on channels that truly perform well. This is a mission that has not changed and is one that TapClicks shares, which made the joining of forces obvious and powerful.
Over the course of nearly 8 years, we employed over 70 amazing teammates in San Francisco, had thousands of customers relying on our products daily, had over $1B annually of marketing spend flowing through our platform, spoke at over 100 events globally, and raised over $15MM from top-tier supporters like Verizon Ventures, Freestyle Capital, Forte Ventures, and more. We are incredibly thankful to everyone who has joined us on this journey.
We are thankful to the TapClicks team for believing in our shared vision. This acquisition allows us to deliver more incredible experiences and a dramatically expanded tool set for our shared customers.
We’re already hard at work on what’s next for our products, technology, and business. Stay tuned here on the AdStage blog for more in the coming months!
Sahil, Jason, and the AdStage Team
