ValueClick Europe’s Mediaplex subsidiary, a leading provider of adserving and email marketing technology has joined forces with The Search Works’ BidBuddy search management products and solutions.

BidBuddy will act as Mediaplex‘s search-management technology partner, with the ultimate aim of enabling advertisers to manage paid search campaigns, supported by Mediaplex’s MOJO AdServer tracking technology.

The BidBuddy Suite is a technology system which manages paid search marketing across all the main search engines at once, where advertisers can develop, implement, optimize and report on online campaigns.

A number of current Mediaplex clients have been working with BidBuddy to optimize their search terms in a testing capacity, with a view to rolling out their campaigns live in 2006.

Mediaplex offers truly bespoke solutions and services in the adserving market. In addition, the company works with Commission Junction, part of the ValueClick Group, to offer its advanced adserving functionality to improve affiliate programmes and reporting information for advertisers.

Alison Guise, UK Country Manager for Mediaplex said, “The agreement between Mediaplex and The Search Works is fantastic news for us and our clients. We can now offer advertisers tracking for every area in online advertising, including banners, email, search (paid and non-paid) and affiliate campaigns.”

Daniel Mohacek, Sales Director, Customised Services at The Search Works said, “We are delighted to have worked so closely with Mediaplex over the last few months and developed a solution that will enable advertisers to effectively manage their search campaigns alongside their other online marketing efforts.”
