In the future, we will offer our customers new products which reach their target audiences precisely. nugg.ad targeting combined with the strong brands of Axel Springer Media Impact offers a unqiue value proposition and additional possibilities for advertisers”, says Robert Bosch, Managing Director Crossmedia & Sales at Axel-Springer Media Impact.
