Digital Remedy is proud to be the home of many Australians over the years. With Australia currently in the grips of a catastrophic nationwide bushfire emergency, our Harmony Team, with the help of our resident-Aussies, hosted a series of events to raise funds to help support the bushfire recovery efforts that their families and friends are confronting back home. 

Over the past few weeks, Remediers far and wide rallied together to benefit a few amazing organizations who are working tirelessly to protect the people, wildlife, and firefighters of Australia during this devastating time. Take a look back at the events below:

Brews for the ‘Roos

With dual events hosted in both NYC and New Orleans, our “Brews For the ‘Roos” Happy Hours invited Remediers, friends, families, and everyone in between to come and enjoy a few drinks for a good cause. Hosted by Home Base Bistro in New York, and Miel Brewery and Taphouse in NOLA, a portion of each night’s proceeds went directly to the WWF Australian Bushfire Relief Fund. Both events ended up being a huge success, with roughly 100 participants, and endless amounts of fun. 

Australia Day Trivia Night

To continue the momentum, we celebrated Australia Day by hosting a series of internal events and activities to fully immerse ourselves in the Australian culture. Participants were asked to make a donation towards Australian relief efforts to join in on the festivities which included a full buffet of traditional Australian treats, a Vegemite eating contest, Australian slang quizzes, and much more. Classic Australian eats like sausage rolls, Tim Tams, Anzac cookies, and even Fosters beer, were provided to keep everyone’s minds sharp through a round of Australian-themed trivia to close out the evening.

Super Bowl Boxes

Finally, to leverage everyone’s love of the annual excitement surrounding the Super Bowl, we harnessed that and used it for a good cause through a classic grid where people could purchase boxes to enter a pool for a chance to win throughout the game. Instead of the winners taking home all of the prize money, half of the proceeds from this year’s pool were donated towards our Australian relief efforts.

In total, Digital Remedy and the Harmony Team were able to raise an astonishing $3,000 for Australian Bushfire relief. This marks our largest fundraising initiative to date, and we were extremely proud to not only help those directly affected in Australia but to also support the Aussies who call Digital Remedy “home.”

With the money raised, we were able to benefit a number of different causes:

  • World Wildlife Foundation – The WWF is an international organization working to save wildlife and protect and restore the native bushlands of Australia. 
  • Wires Wildlife Rescue – Wires Wildlife Rescue is the largest wildlife rescue organization in Australia that has been rescuing and caring for wildlife for over 30 years. 
  • NSW Fire Fighters – The New South Wales Rural Fire Service is the lead combat agency for bushfires in NSW and is the largest firefighter service in the world. 
  • Salvation Army Australia – Salvation Army Australia provides those affected by the devastation with shelter, food, clothing, and financial and emotional support.

Buying Power and Quality

Let’s be honest. Your ad ops are limited by your access to only a handful of channels and DSPs. You want more reach and better prices, but don’t want to sacrifice quality in order to achieve those goals. Digital Remedy has access to a vast multitude of channels based on relationships we’ve cultivated over nearly 20 years in business. That means we get the best prices, have personal relationships, and don’t get sent to voicemail when we call.

It also means that we can execute omni-channel ad ops for better prices than an internal team, while ensuring the quality is up to industry standards. On top of access to all sorts of specific audiences we’re able to to leverage first- and third-party data across all your campaigns and pivot across platforms based on results. Any campaign, any budget, any platform, any audience. Digital Remedy backed by AdReady is restriction free ad ops….and what could be better than that?

Resources, Time, and Overhead

When was the last time you enjoyed balancing budgets, reading resumes, dealing with aggressive sales teams, or wasting years of time for small gains in performance. By partnering with Digital Remedy you get the full support of $30m in OPEX including marketing teams, sales teams, and a dedicated 24/7 ad operations team. No hiring new employees for media optimization, business development, or account management. No months of training and on-boarding. No long meetings crafting sales materials. Just your team focused on making deals, and our teams and tech focused on supporting and executing those deals in a tech-enabled, digital ecosystem designed to get the most out of any KPI.

Reporting and Support

How nice would it be to have all of your data and insights in one location. We don’t mean an excel sheet sent out once a week with complicated charts, or an XML file with pages and pages and pages of tables (what is this, 2003?). We mean a fully customizable dashboard reporting in real time, or as real time as possible. You get to decide the how, what, and when of the reporting you’re seeing. And that’s ALL of the how, what, and when’s. If you want to see breakouts of all of the individual campaigns in your system, done. If you want broad scope comparisons of all of the campaigns in the last year, done. If you want to see CTR’s for specific audiences and compare them to CPM for your best performing advertiser but limit the scope to campaigns greater than 30k, done. All of this is at your fingertips with the AdReady Dashboard, all in one place.
