What mobile downturn? Mobile ad revenue opportunity growing despite Facebook’s increasing share

eMarketer recently released an update to their respected mobile advertising market sizing data and revenue forecast. This has been widely reported with many sources noting the slow-down in overall ad growth and the increasing share going to Facebook. At the same time, some commentators are stating that the mobile market is becoming increasingly tough for new entrants and that mobile is somehow in decline outside of the big platforms. However, what has been less widely noticed is that eMarketer’s numbers imply that the overall addressable mobile advertising market available to “other” platforms i.e. NOT Facebook and Google, is still growing at an extremely healthy clip. This might help to explain why we are still seeing huge growth in the number of mobile advertising and app advertising networks

What are the Best Mobile Affiliate and CPA Mobile Ad Networks?

Main Header

Affiliate marketing – where an advertiser pays based on a completed action (CPA) rather than for page views (CPM) or clicks (CPC) and using a network of partners or affiliates to deliver the advertising – is a well established, even mature market online.  The affiliate model has been successful wherever there’s a specific conversion event such as a sales lead, form fill or purchase that can be tracked.  On mobile and app platforms, the affiliate model has also begun to take-off with the growth of app installs as a new mobile-native conversion event to track, as well as benefiting from offers from mobile content services, mobile dating and a few other categories. Furthermore, with the rapid growth in m-commerce a new generation of CPA events

AppFlood announces China-focused mobile RTB platform

AppFloodLogo

Mobile ad company AppFlood has announced a new mobile-focused Real Time Bidding platform, designed to help Western advertisers and publishers access the burgeoning mobile ad marketplace in China. According to AppFlood, its Demand Side/Supply Side platform is the first to be engineered and launched in China, making it the first company to offer an “effective” use of RTB technology in order to connect Western publishers and advertisers to the Chinese market. AppFlood says previous China-focused RTB solutions have been unsuccesful due to technical barriers, which have prevented platforms from processing bids quickly enough. AppFlood now claims it’s gotten around these technical hurdles by leveraging Amazon Web Services’ DynamoDB technology, to support its infrastructure and “overcome latency issues that have hampered RTB in the past.” Si
