New Advertising Platform Helps Digital Companies & Diverse Creators Generate Revenue
January 4, 2023 – New York, NY – EBONY Media Group, the most influential Black-owned media
company in the world, announces the launch of EBONY Alliance, a new advertising platform
designed to help BIPOC creators and aligned companies monetize their sites and digital assets
easily and without the overhead cost of hiring sales, operational and tech teams. EBONY has
enlisted Infinity Partnerships, the most inclusive expert network for advertising technology, to
lead the charge in creating EBONY Alliance, and to actively seek new publisher partnerships and
members to join the exclusive group.
“At EBONY Media Group, we want to hear more diverse voices in our industry and we want to
see more diverse brands thrive. Financial success has a direct impact on a brand’s longevity. We
have launched EBONY Alliance to help BIPOC and aligned creators and companies monetize
their sites. By driving revenue to their bottom line, we hope to give members of EBONY Alliance
the means to amplify their message and bring even more insightful, inspiring, and diverse
content to the industry,” says EBONY Media Group’s owner and CEO Eden Bridgeman Sklenar.
Infinity Partnerships co-founders Amanda Binns and George Mani add, “We are thrilled to
partner with Eden and team on the important initiative to empower BIPOC and LGBTQ content
creators. EBONY’s mission aligns perfectly with our core values of integrity, equity and inclusion
and we are eager to use our combined 34 years of advertising technology expertise and expert
network to launch and scale this business.”
As part of the launch, in September, EBONY Media Group and Infinity Partnerships hosted a VIP
dinner to kick off New York Fashion week with industry insiders and diverse media owners, such
as Bernard Rook of Rainbow Media Corporation and Anthony Dominguez of Colossus SSP.
The goal of EBONY Alliance is to be inclusive of all diverse groups and build a network of BIPOC
and allied brands.
Under new leadership EBONY Media Group is celebrating a renaissance as a digital first,
tech-driven multimedia company that honors the brand’s original mission with a new tagline of
Moving Black Forward through online and social content, virtual and IRL experiences, the
recently launched EBONY Studios, and now EBONY Alliance.
