AccuWeather Partners with Comprendi to Bring Targeted Contextual Advertising to Social Media Users
Best in class contextual advertising technology combines with the world's leading weather data to customize and trigger ads on Facebook and Twitter.
AccuWeather Global Weather Center - June 28, 2017 - AccuWeather, the global leader in weather information and digital media, has announced the launch of a new partnership with Comprendi, an award-winning leader in contextual social advertising delivering real-time ad personalization based on social chatter, sports news, financial market information, and weather forecasts with Superior Accuracy(tm). AccuWeather will provide access to over 40 proprietary weather data and algorithms including Real Feel(r) Temperature and Allergy, Migraine, Driving, and Lawn & Garden forecasts which can be used by advertisers to reach audiences in the locations and at the times weather conditions and other factors are relevant for possible purchase decisions and interests. These unique algorithms remove the requirement to geo-target to specific locations. This targeting delivers ads only to locations that are being affected by these proprietary weather factors.

Advertisers will work directly with AccuWeather and Comprendi to define the algorithm that fits their overall objectives. Once this is defined, Comprendi will facilitate the activation, delivery, and reporting for the advertiser.
