Jun Group Creates SightSoundEmotion to Generate Awareness for Social Causes

New Distribution Model to Drive Millions of Video Views for Important Causes

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 28, 2014) - Jun Group (www.jungroup.com) today announced SightSoundEmotion (SSE) (www.sightsoundemotion.com), a Web and mobile site designed to raise awareness for important causes such as Autism Awareness, Bullying Prevention, Emergency Preparedness, and Recycling.

SSE will provide free video exposure for the Ad Council's 50 causes, while giving brands a safe, premium environment in which to run pre-roll video ads. The site creates a common platform that can be leveraged by causes and charities to expand their audience reach.

"We challenged our team to create a sustainable model that would promote social causes and deliver tangible value for our clients," said Mitchell Reichgut, CEO of Jun Group. "That concept became a first-of-its kind concept called SightSoundEmotion. It's a project that everyone can feel good about -- including the people who click and watch."

Jun Group's Overdrive technology will promote SSE across the company's premium publisher partners on tablets, mobile devices, and the Web. Audiences will be able to watch videos from causes of interest to them, and brands have the opportunity to align their messages with the videos through pre-roll advertising. Videos are accompanied by information about the causes, and links to learn more or donate. At launch, the site is expected to drive 4-5 million monthly videos views, and will scale upward over time.

"The new SightSoundEmotion platform will provide significant exposure for our causes across issue areas including health, safety, education and community involvement," said Peggy Conlon, president and CEO of the Ad Council. "Having the ability to include information and links to resources, along with the video content, will help drive visitors to take action. We are grateful to be involved in such an innovative project."
