Firefly Expands to Miami to Supercharge Super Bowl Advertising

Already the fastest-growing street-level media platform in the country, the expansion extends the companyís presence to six of the nationís top media markets


SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – WEBWIRE

Firefly, the company leveraging taxi and rideshare vehicles to build a street-level digital media network, today announced the expansion of its operations to Miami, Florida, a quickly-growing top media market. With screens rolling out this month, the company enables brands to supercharge advertising around the locally-hosted Super Bowl, the nationís most-watched sports event of the year.†

Of equal import to the athleticism celebrated at the annual event, the Big Game has also become synonymous with marketing, as companies invest major money to showcase their best brand messaging. In 2019, a 30-second advertisement slot televised during the game cost companies an average of $5 million, with spaces quickly reserved by household brand names. Still, these advertisementsí effectiveness continues to decrease due to both brand overcrowding and an increase in viewers opting for commercial-less streaming services over traditional television.

Firefly drives the next generation of advertising technology, delivering highly effective media campaigns using geo-targeted technology, concurrently boosting income for taxis and rideshare drivers. To-date, the company has paid out more than $3 million to its driver partners. Already trusted by household names like Puma, HotelTonight, Brex, DoorDash and more, the company provides its wide customer base with dependable hyper-relevant marketing content thatís proven to drive full-funnel measurement capabilities directly to target audiences.

With its timely debut on Miami streets, Firefly empowers brands to cut past their television advertisements to make a real messaging impact during the yearís biggest media event. The startup works directly with taxis and rideshare drivers, installing its proprietary displays atop their vehicles and serving geo-targeted, programmable out-of-home (OOH) advertising on the screens.†

ďAt Firefly, weíre always looking to iterate and innovate on traditional out-of-home practices to drive the most value for our brand partners,Ē said Firefly CEO and cofounder Kaan Gunay. ďOur unique screens offer companies a multichannel solution to help their messaging stay at the forefront of customer minds meaningfully. Weíre excited to continue growing our presence in Miami and offer a fresh media channel for brands around this yearís Super Bowl.Ē

Recently selected as one of TIMEís Best Inventions of 2019, Firefly is already active in the nationís top media markets, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, Dallas, and Chicago. This expansion in Miami extends the companyís position as the nationís fastest-growing street-level media network, with drivers achieving a combined total of more than 24,000 hours on the road.†
