Romney Ad Firm Partners for Big Data on Hispanics
The battle for the Hispanic vote in 2012 will be fought with community events, TV spots, door knocking, phone calls - and highly targeted online ads. Just two weeks after President Barack Obama's reelection campaign launched its Latinos for Obama effort, Mitt Romney's online ad firm is partnering exclusively with an Hispanic data firm in the hopes of reaching the coveted voting bloc with messages that speak directly to them.
Targeted Victory, the company handling online ad buys for the likely GOP presidential nominee, has partnered with Pulpo Media, a four-year-old Hispanic online ad targeting outfit. Pulpo has agreed to work with Targeted Victory - which also handled online ads for possible VP nominee Marco Rubio's Senate campaign - exclusively, meaning no other political ad firm can work with Pulpo this election cycle.

Pulpo Media becomes Hispanic Internet Leader, as Hispanic Population Soars
Berkeley, CA - According to the 2010 U.S. Census, the Hispanic population rose to 50.5 million over the last decade. Hispanics now account for 16% of the total domestic population, and 11% of the total online population. Several online media companies serve this vital market. Among them, Pulpo Media has become a clear leader in terms of ranking, technology innovation, and market growth.
"Pulpo Media had the strategic vision to create new technology and offer online media to a remarkably under-served yet booming segment. Advertisers interested in driving greater ROI by communicating efficiently and with hyper-relevance to online Hispanics now have a clear choice." said CEO and Founder Justin Kuykendall. "We can communicate to individual Hispanics via: language preference, demographics, geography, and online behavioral knowledge. Waste is minimized and return is maximized."
Online media entrepreneur Kuykendall saw the potential for advertisers to communicate with what he believed was an under-represented internet audience segment. In 2008, he convinced top Silicon Valley Internet investors of the need for a media and technology services company to serve the fast-growing Hispanic internet user audience.
Today, according to comScore Media Metrix Hispanic Ad-Focus, Pulpo Media is ranked No. 1 as the Spanish language dominant media services provider, and No. 2 as the English language dominant media services provider, online.
