Why Publishers Choose Vessel.

Digital content publishers exist in an 'innovate or die' industry, an industry where the only metric that truly matters is the Engagement Rate: a measurement of reader intent expressed through secondary actions, divided by the content's viewership. These days, if the content isn't 1. Credible, 2. Relevant, 3. Interactive and 4. Measurable, audience engagement and monetization become an uphill battle.

As an enabling media and technology solution, Vessel is positioned to help publishers succeed.  

 

Our focus:

  • Increasing Engagement

  • Measuring Real Actions

  • Driving Revenue.

Engagement Rate Averages 3x Higher than Influencer-Generated Content on Instagram.

Content View Time Increased by an Average of 2min

A Growing Network Reach of 2Million+
