The performance industry has changed significantly this year, creating unique challenges for all. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, our priority has been to help our partners adjust to the changing eCommerce landscape and consumer behaviors. We launched a dedicated resource center providing a transparent view of network performance and actionable strategies. We also adapted our events to allow networking opportunities between advertisers and publishers to continue virtually.

The Rakuten Advertising team has not only risen to these challenges, but they have also driven exceptional success for their clients. We continue to evolve our product offering, developing tools that drive success and encourage innovation for both advertisers and publishers.

If you’re a client, publisher or partner of Rakuten Advertising and have enjoyed working with us, then you can vote for us at the below links:

A big congratulations once again to all our partners who have been shortlisted. The winners will be announced at the virtual award ceremony on November 24th.
