Leading social technology company joins elite group of Strategic Preferred Marketing Developers recognized for positive impact on Facebook’s marketing developer ecosystem

SAN FRANCISCO – July 10, 2013 – Ampush, a leading social technology company, today announced that it is now a Facebook Strategic Preferred Marketing Developer (sPMD). Facebook’s sPMD designation is awarded to partners that show commitment to excellence and continued innovation with the platform’s advertising products. With the sPMD designation, the company gains priority product and business support, access to alpha and beta trials, co-development of product go-to market strategy, and improved turn-around-time for ads review and technical issues.

Ampush was one of the first ad solution companies to work within Facebook’s paid media ecosystem and has been a Preferred Marketing Developer (PMD) since 2011. Ampush’s continued focus on product innovation with Facebook has enabled the company to evolve its proprietary technology in conjunction with the evolution of Facebook’s ad offerings, resulting in industry-leading ROI for its customers. Using its trademarked AMP Social Marketing Platform, Ampush is able to unlock Referred Intent – or the powerful force that drives people to try things their friends like – to strategically meet the most advanced marketing objectives for clients such as MasterCard, Living Social, and Kellogg’s.

“Ampush is dedicated to developing products and solutions that help brands achieve the best possible return on Facebook advertising spend,” said Jesse Pujji, CEO at Ampush. “Our rigorous, data-driven approach has enabled us to continue to evolve our product suite, ensuring we’re consistently delivering best-in-class solutions for our customers. As an sPMD, we’ll continue to work in close partnership with Facebook, further improving the buying experience and developing new ways for brands to harness the power of Facebook’s ad platform.”

“We’re pleased to welcome Ampush into the sPMD program,” said Blake Chandlee, Vice President of Partnerships at Facebook. “As demonstrated through their win of Facebook’s ‘The Era of News Feed’ PMD innovation competition earlier this year, Ampush continues to build and deliver innovative technology that enhances the performance of their brand partners on Facebook.”

“Working with Ampush has enabled us to stay on top of the innovation curve and achieve success in an ever-changing Facebook environment,” said Laurie Dewan, Vice President of Monetization at Rdio. “By leveraging their AMP 2.0 Social Marketing Platform alongside expert insights and a focus on mobile, Ampush helped us optimize our campaigns to keep CPIs attractive over time, while scaling our paid media on Facebook internationally. We’re now consistently ranked one of the top free music applications in the App Store.”
