What are your main tips for successful mobile traffic monetization?
Stick to your core business, while being open for improvement and innovation. Be compliant and test and test and test some more.
What do you think the big themes for mobile performance marketing are going to be in 2016?
I think that cross device targeting, location and time relevancy will be part of the big themes in 2016.
Manual vs. programmatic, what limitations do you see for a programmatic ad approach?
Programmatic will always have the upperhand with the right approach. It’s less time consuming and thus scalable. I think that the limitations for programmatic ads are just for niches.
Do you see mobile web or in-app advertising as the leader of mobile advertising?
Mobile web is currently the leader at least for us, in-app is a big and interesting market in which we want to expand further.

What are your favourite apps?
Notes, funny enough as it’s so basic but definitely my most used app then Uber and Spotify
What do you think about IoT? Do you have any smart appliances at home?
I don’t have any smart appliances at home, but I think that the Internet of things is perhaps the most underrated development to affect our lives and our behaviour. Our mobile devices will slowly turn into remote controls for our surroundings. Now imagine the possibilitIes this brings for the mobile advertising industry.
