Jupitermedia Buys Two Web Sites
Jupitermedia has purchased AdsofTheWorld.com and CreativeBits.org. Both Web sites offer user-generated content for design communities and have one million unique monthly visitors combined.
The sites will be part of Jupitermedia’s Graphics.com network. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
AdsOfTheWorld.com is an advertising archive and community site. Community features include a forum section and a blog.
Creativebits.org is a professional blog and community site focused on graphic designers working on Mac OS X.
"We’re very excited to be adding these two rapidly growing creative community-driven sites to our Graphics.com network. A key driver to commercial success of any online business is having direct access to the related professional communities," stated Alan M Meckler, Chairman and CEO of Jupitermedia Corporation.
"In addition to strengthening Graphics.com’s advertising offerings, this acquisition provides us with the opportunity to cross-promote our Jupiterimages offerings, which include digital images, music, footage, flash, fonts, animations and illustrations, to a community of over 1.0 million creative professionals," added Meckler.
