365 Digital started providing trafficking solutions as a support service to the online ad sales on Primedia Online’s own websites about 6 years ago. Over the next few years trafficking at 365 started to show real potential as several European publishers approached us to handle the trafficking and campaign management for their sites also. At this stage online ad serving and trafficking solutions were not part of the online media requirements in South Africa. As the agencies started putting pressure on local publishers for accurate and results driven online ad campaigns, 365 entered the local market.

Adtech, the leading online ad solutions technology provider in Europe then chose 365 as their exclusive representative in Southern Africa to on sell their technology in the local market. is South Africa’s most established portal and one of the biggest web brands with one of the largest, loyalist user bases in the country.
