What our advertising partners say

"We partnered with Devex to promote a new Monitoring & Evaluation Leadership in Learning 8-week online course and saw more registrations during the time we advertised with Devex than with other marketing efforts. We haven't had any other single strategy reach as large a segment of potential Leaders like the investment with Devex!"

Kim Castelin, Global Research and Engagement, Washington State University

"As a fairly new organisation, we wanted to make sure we reached our target audience in a cost effective way. Since advertising on and across the many newsletters they send out, we are increasing our audience base, increasing the numbers of people signing up to do our free courses and most importantly reaching those most important to us – humanitarian field workers. Working with Devex has allowed us to elevate our brand and get our courses in front of our core audience."

Vishnee Sauntoo, Former Marketing and Communications Lead, Humanitarian Leadership Academy

"Partnering with Devex on a series of in-depth sponsored content articles enabled us to demonstrate the transformative power of technology to improve the health and well-being of underserved populations. Devex's audience is comprised of exactly the type of organizations we seek to serve with our Vantage solution – from NGOs, governments, donor agencies to private sector companies. Working with their team of experts has proven to be an extremely valuable way to show how our technology improves decision-making and operational effectiveness to solve social problems at scale."

Dr. John Sargent, Co-founder, BroadReach

"As a longtime advertising partner with Devex, we see great value in both the quantity and quality of prospective students we are reaching. Devex provides Duke with the unique capability to connect with the most highly qualified global development professionals. Our most recent targeted e-blast nearly doubled the daily traffic to our site, where visitors spent 5+ minutes learning what our program has to offer."

Stephanie Alt Lamm, Associate Director of the Master of International Development Policy Program, Duke University

"Having worked with Devex over the years in a variety of ways, we turned to them to help us promote the Moving Worlds Institute as we looked to boost applications for our new 6-month immersive program for mid-career, high achieving professionals. We had a limited budget and only a few weeks before the application deadline and Devex worked with us to put together an advertising package that met our needs. We received an amazing response – over 2x the traffic to our website from our first time advertising with Devex – demonstrating the impact of repeat impressions and importance of brand recognition."

Mark Horoszowski, Co-founder & CEO, MovingWorlds

"Advertising our procurement opportunities with Devex through graphical banner ads in their daily procurement alert and targeted e-blasts has helped us expand our supplier database and ensure a competitive procurement process. In addition to the metrics Devex shared after our ad campaign, I am happy to report that we had a lot of new companies requesting the tender documents so the evidence backs up the stats."

Edson Madeira, Procurement Specialist, Research for Community Access Partnership, Cardno Emerging Markets

"Running sponsored social media with Devex was a good investment. Through Facebook posts, the ads resulted in over 250 survey participants which was extremely helpful for my research on mental health and wellbeing in aid workers. I look forward to working with Devex again."

Tarli Young, School of Psychology, University of Queensland

"Through sponsored content and targeted e-blasts we were able to attract top experts to apply to join the Global Fund Technical Review Panel, working to eliminate HIV, TB and malaria as public health threats."

Silvio Martinelli, Head of Access to the Funding Department, The Global Fund

"Our employer branding ad campaign in Devex's Global Development Briefing and Development Insider newsletters paired with sponsored social media led to a huge spike in traffic to our careers page. Timed to coincide the Devex's Career Fair, it was some of the highest traffic we've seen in a long time!
