  • Starcom and Yahoo

The media agency and search engine will use audience data from both companies to create video content about topics that resonate with Yahoo users. Starcom clients Allstate, Kraft, Kellogg’s, Hallmark and Beam Inc. will be among the launch partners on the project and will sponsor the videos that target specific audience segments.
