Ghana’s leading digital news and online advertising portal, GhanaWeb, has entered into a partnership with the Advertising Association of Ghana (AAG) to help improve Ghana’s advertising industry with thought leadership and knowledge exchange about marketing and advertising.
Through its representatives, Advertiser and Publisher Solutions Ghana Ltd. (ADPU), GhanaWeb will provide advertising and marketing solutions like the GhanaWeb Reporter, GhanaWeb Business Pages and GhanaWeb TV to AAG to enhance knowledge exchange and education on marketing and advertising among others to its members and any marketing and advertising professional.
Mr. Ekow Blankson, Commercial Manager of ADPU and GhanaWeb’s representative expressed the need for Ghana’s advertising and marketing industries to embrace digital transformation and catch up with all the opportunities that technology provides to marketing and advertising.
“As an intermediary in-house agency for the AfricaWeb Group, ADPU will offer tailor-made advertising solutions to other agencies and their clients and work together with the AAG. As a thought leader in digital innovations, ADPU, representing GhanaWeb, can be reached to provide solutions to bugging problems in digitalisation and to drive the speed and ease of product offering to customers,” he said.

“Technology and digital developments have a big impact on the marketing industry worldwide. Advertising has become more data-driven and shows real-time results. We want to support the need for education and knowledge by making some of our digital assets available to AAG, which is the authority and advocate for developing the advertising and marketing practice in Ghana. We will be helped as well by doing this since more knowledge and understanding will also increase the appreciation of the innovation that GhanaWeb brings to the advertising community in Ghana,” he said.
