About Us

Our Mission

At Rakuten Marketing, our mission is to make the Internet a better place. A place that brings relevance, value and enjoyment to everyone involved – advertisers, publishers and consumers alike.

How do we do it? By never slowing down. By constantly innovating. By combining our pioneering artificial intelligence with rich Data insights. By connecting global brands to our industry-leading publisher network. By using game-changing strategy, shaped by decades of learning, to disrupt the industry as we know it.

For Marketers

We bring them their next customer, and keep that customer coming back time and again.

And for Consumers

We make going online an experience they love – one where they’re known and respected, and every message is relevant.

In the end, everyone wins. Marketing performance increases. Publishers grow – both users and profit. And consumers tune back in – because they get the best from every interaction they have.
