“The options for advertisers are endless. We are seeing campaigns that combine location-based ads with loyalty programs, offering recurring customers targeted vouchers. That’s a great example of leveraging mobile advertising effectiveness from the online world to the offline world.”

Avazu has over 21 ad exchanges and supply side platforms integrated thus far (including Mopub, Rubicon, Smaato, OpenX, Nexage, PubMatic, DoubleClick, etc.). It features almost 30bn daily ad impressions and features released weekly. Its global expansion strategy is aggressive with offices in Amsterdam, Berlin and LA. Recently, the company was named one of the top 5 DSPs in revenue share on mobile exchange Smaato for the second quarter in a row. Shi adds:

“For years we’ve been serving Asian advertisers very closely with local operation teams to gain deep insights into their campaign strategies – this I think will indeed help us penetrate new markets.”
