Punch Sulzberger Award - The New York Times

Date: - April 2010  
Issuer: - Excellence in Print, Digital or Visual Journalism
Description: - The Punch Award, which recognizes employees who achieve superior performance. In this last category, members across the technology, ad operations, sales development and pricing teams worked together behind the scenes to create a new capability to allow for flexible but high-impact home page executions. 

Through this group effort, they succeeded in creating a platform through which dozens of salespeople have been able to sell some of the most remarkable executions seen anywhere on the Web. This approach has provided a platform for sales teams to sell dozens of high-impact units (Apple, Cisco, Fage, Gucci, HBO, Shell and TD Ameritrade, to name a few). 

It has also garnered our home page its deserved reputation as the place for launching creative, engaging and effective ads that reach an audience of influential readers.

Overview: For publishers aiming to capture this reader attention, as well as drive habit, there is something to be learned from behavior on social media.

Pairing this behavioral habit with rich in-depth content on a daily basis, will be a recipe for future success.
