Advertising is evolving and at Essence we’re a part of that. We’re passionate about making our advertising personal. Not personal as in creepy, but personal as in useful.
We want our ads to resonate with people by showing them something of interest. We sit at the intersection of creativity and technology - across all channels from Banners and Social to DooH and video.
Take Pegasus, our proprietary ad-tech. ML is employed to analyse the exact webpage where our ad will appear and then we use all that information to inform what we show in our creative.
The end result is an ad that is contextual to the page. A personalised ad that uses no personal data.
