"We are fusing together two popular advertising formats to drive better tracking of both ROI and branded advertising spend. We want consumers to know exactly what they're getting before they even click on an ad," said John Galatea, vice president of sales and marketing at SearchMe. "The combination of search marketing with the power of branded display ads creates more valuable clicks leading to increased conversions and that's what advertisers want. The added qualification of seeing before clicking makes a huge difference for end users and advertisers and provides an exciting glimpse into the future of visual search advertising."
