The IDG TechNetwork Nanosite brings the full capabilities of a rich media website directly to your target audience. Created at any size, though most often a large 300×600 tower, the Nanosite eliminates the old world model of driving traffic to microsites by turning the audience into the destination. By delivering content directly to users, brands can be sure their message is reaching the right audience at the right time and in the right place. In addition, all behavior and engagement is tracked and reported.

Within multiple content tabs, Nanosites can host white papers and research, social and RSS feeds, video, social sharing, product carousels, image galleries, and more. In addition, Nanosites have an optional Lightbox feature—a larger overlay that highlights even more content without leaving the originating web page.

With IDG TechNetwork audience reach and scale, the Nanosite is an all-inclusive, high impact, high engagement solution for any brand and marketing campaign.
