The only Google Certified Publishing Partner based in Australia & New Zealand
It all started when Colm Dolan and Tobin Page, a couple of brainy blokes from Google, got the idea to jump in and actually help publishers execute all of the techy recommendations they’d been giving out for years. They saw firsthand how publishers struggle to keep up with the complex advertising landscape (fair enough - it changes more often than the PM).
They knew there was no shortage of ad platforms out there for publishers, but nobody seemed to be helping publishers to combine all of these platforms effectively. It became very clear there was a massive opportunity to find a way to do this so publishers could focus on what they do best: create content.
Headquartered in the trendy Sydney suburb of Surry Hills, Publift is now a team of 20 loaded with expertise, passion and a cheeky sense of humour. We fill the resource and knowledge gap often faced by digital publishers like you with the ultimate goal of lifting your ad revenue (while having a bit of fun).
Words we live by
We are ethical
We are honest
We learn from failure
We celebrate success
We have fun
A FLARE FOR CARE
We do what we can for our community
We live in a special place and it’s up to us to make sure future generations get to enjoy it too. It’s not just about a day here and there to volunteer, it’s about changing the way we live and work on a daily basis to really make an impact.
We spend a huge chunk of our time at the office so it only makes sense to bring those sustainability habits to work too. At Publift, we encourage eco-friendly transport, use an intricate office recycling system, sip out of our Publift "keep cups" and have big plans for our dream office. We’re talking self-sufficient solar-powered office space, complete with Tesla Power Walls and a fleet of electric vehicles. (*sigh* - one day…)
Our work with Sydney Dog and Cat Home, Clean Up Australia, Oz Harvest, Can Too and various charities are some of the other things we do outside of the ordinary to do our part.
