“Giant Realm is no longer synonymous with just videogaming,” said Keith Kane, co-founder and SVP, Sales&Marketing, Giant Realm, Inc.“We now reach millions of movie and television fans, by taking the same approach we first took with videogame audiences…by tapping into highly focused communities where they spend much of their time online.”
“It’s about authenticity for these guys when it comes to their entertainment passion points, and for that reason, they’re spending more of their time on sites like ours, sites with trusted content and a community of their peers,” Kane remarked.“What this means for marketers is that they can now reach these fragmented audiences, with scale, through Giant Realm.”
The new sites coming on board fit the Giant Realm criteria of being“best-in-class” in regards to delivering authentic content, a trusted community of like-minded young men, and the ability to provide engaging“beyond the banner” experiences for marketers. They include:
• Geeks of Doom ( www.geeksofdoom.com), appealing to the inner-geek in everyone. It covers all things entertainment, from movies, video games and television to music and comic books. It features news, reviews, interviews, contests, and articles written by a team of writers who are entertainment-obsessed;
