Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, Spain – February 24, 2014 - Smaato, the leading global mobile real-time bidding ad exchange (SMX) and Supply Side Platform, and IQzone, a technology company specializing in post app mobile advertising solutions will showcase their latest global mobile advertising solutions at Mobile World Congress (MCW) 2014. Partnering last year, IQzone and Smaato will be combining forces yet again to demonstrate their plug-and-play Postitial® mobile advertising offering for Android, which aims to enhance the user experience and improve monetization and eCPMs for publishers.
Mobile Real Time Bidding (RTB) and new ad formats are on the rise:
Smaato’s recently published H2 2013 Mobile RTB Report demonstrates the continued growth of mobile RTB. Throughout last year, SMX saw an aggregate RTB performance increase of 466%. This rapid growth encourages the development of more innovative technology and advanced ad formats. With the shift from standard banners towards more engaging ad formats, IQzone’s Postitial® is helping publishers adapt by providing them with full-page interstitials, rich media and video.
“Partnering with IQzone allows us to offer our Android publishers and developers an advanced, successful technology that enables them to more effectively monetize apps,” said Georg Fiegen, Smaato’s COO. “We recognize a clear market demand for innovative technology solutions and are excited to be among the first to offer our publishers this inventive solution.”
“In order to increase revenue app, developers need higher eCPMs, and to achieve higher eCPMs, they need increased CTRs. However, with higher CTRs comes a higher level of users leaving their app session when they may have naturally continued to use it,” said John Kuolt, co-founder of IQzone Inc. “We launched Postitial to solve this problem for publishers without impacting user experience. In fact, the adoption rate of Postitial has been phenomenal, with a 760% growth in Q4 alone.”
Located in the App Planet, Hall 8.1, #8.1E61 at MWC, Smaato and IQzone will exhibit their latest global mobile advertising solutions.
