The SocialMedia Mission
SocialMedia Networks is the first company solely focused on advertising in social media. We deliver compelling ways advertisers engage users across social media while providing developers with turn-key solutions to make money from their applications. Developers entrust us to monetize their traffic for over 5,000 applications, with a mix of brand and performance based marketers advertising on our network.
We are a team of people who believe we can create better advertising for social networks. Most of what passes for "social network advertising" today are annoying banners and text links that don't connect to the social graph in any meaningful way. Our vision is to make advertising on social networks as engaging and socially relevant as the applications themselves. This requires a tight working relationship with leading developers of social applications, courageous marketers willing to advertise in a new medium, and a killer technology platform to bring it all together. Our team includes a healthy mix of experienced online advertising veterans and idealistic social app hackers. Our offices are located in downtown Palo Alto and Pier 38 in San Francisco and we're always looking for interesting people to hire, partner with and learn from so feel free to drop us an email and visit.
Life at SocialMedia
Our values provide a framework for us to make decisions when faced with imperfect information.
Perfect is the enemy of the good: The world of social media is being shaped and reshaped every day. There is no perfect solution to advertising within social media. And so the key is to try things, make mistakes, learn and try something new. The "right answer" will most likely emerge from lots of little wrong answers relentlessly iterated.
Treasure The Climb: Between the moment you begin a business and the moment you exit the business lies the long grind. This is where we spend the vast majority of our time, so enjoy it. Sure, it's nice to descend with the wind at your back, but it's the hard work of learning to collaborate around a common goal and driving relentlessly towards that vision that we will all be left with.
Finish it yourself: Don't wait for somebody else to finish what you can do yourself. When in doubt, get something out there.
