Rise and Appzio join forces to offer mobile Audience Development solution for media owners

For bloggers, in-house blogs and digital news channels developing an audience for their mobile app is much easier as they can now embed a Rise Power 100 leaderboard directly within the app.

A power 100 leaderboard shows the most influential people in a target community and updates every week with the risers and fallers. It’s super engaging content.

The digital division of newspaper brand “CityAM” have been using Rise leaderboards effectively to develop new digital audiences, one of their boards, the fintech power 100, has been shared over 5000 times.

Carly Wilkie Steven, Audience Development manager at CityAM said “Rise has been integral to our efforts to engage with specific communities. Every week the leaderboards reach more people, generate fresh interest and spark conversations on social media. Rise has helped us build relationships with an audience we might otherwise never have had access to.”

The new integration with Appzio will allow Appzio customers to embed Rise leaderboards directly within their apps, so taking advantage of this very effective audience development approach.

Timo Railo, CTO of Appzio, said “we really love the Rise leaderboards as they create personalised, engaging content that mobile app users like to see on their phones on the go. By partnering with the Rise social network we are bringing our customers a new way to create a really engaging mobile experience.”

Toby Beresford, CEO of Rise.global said “we want Rise customers to be able to share their scores in any medium – whether that’s print, a big screen, social media – Rise helps everyone share the score. Now with this Appzio integration we’re looking forward to seeing Rise scores go mobile.”
