Our Story

Publift was founded in 2015, by a couple of brainy ex-Googlers who had a big idea (as they do). Their vision was to become the first platform to give digital publishers (website/ blog owners) and app publishers (or developers) access to hard-to-reach premium advertising partners.

Publift CEO Colm Dolan knew how important ad revenue was for small to mid-sized businesses and could see that publishers needed help understanding the ad tech landscape to get the most out of the ads on their websites.

Paired with simplified, cutting-edge programmatic advertising technology and impartial, ethical guidance, Publift has grown to serve over 350 clients across 60 countries.

This focus has helped Publift to become the proud winners of The Drum APAC Best Sell-Side Technology for Programmatic Trading in October 2019, make the top ten in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50, pick up the Google Certified Publishing Partner Transformer Award and gain recognition by The Australian Financial Review & Statista as one of Australia's Fast Starters 2020.

Publift is a Google Certified Publishing Partner with a humble but mighty team loaded with expertise, passion and a cracking sense of humour.
