Watchfire Signs today announced a partnership with Blip that will allow users of Watchfire’s Ignite software to enable Blip with a single click. Blip is the highest performing self-serve marketplace for small business advertisers in the USA to buy airtime on digital billboards with any budget. The integration enables Watchfire customers to use Ignite OA as usual, but now maximize revenue by seamlessly enabling sales through the Blip marketplace.
