Introducing In-text Ads For Mobile: Advertising With Better User Experience

Blogs and mobile websites that have a lot of textual content often face the problem of traffic monetization. Placing images, text, and ads on a small screen is a challenge. Site owners need to find a way to benefit from the content while not disrupting user interaction with content, or driving them away with irrelevant information. The audience reacts better to ads that blend naturally into the environment, fit the context of the website and provide additional value to users. This type of advertisement helps to avoid user frustration and abandonment — common reactions to overly intrusive ads. There is a solution for text monetization which has been successfully functioning on desktop for about 15 years — in-text ads. And yet, this format is quite

WhatsApp rolls out Status bar for more creative user updates


Source WhatsApp Messaging app WhatsApp has just launched WhatsApp Status – a special tab that lets users share embellished photos and videos. Similar to Snapchat, they disappear within 24 hours. It’s not the first time, Facebook subsidiaries have copied Snapchat products. Indeed, Instagram just recently unveiled a feature that blatantly copies Snapchat Stories. So what’s the big difference with Status? For one, the WhatsApp feature is encrypted. Available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone, users share their creative images with friends and contacts. In addition, the tool could potentially be a boon for advertisers by allowing ads between statuses. WhatsApp currently has 1.2 billion month users with 60 billion messages sent daily. The success of Status may potentially hinder some of Snapchat’s growth. However, it’s too early to tell

Top Affiliate Networks 2017

An affiliate network helps publishers to monetize their inventory by providing a variety of options, as well as all necessary tools for running campaigns (tracking links, creatives etc.). For advertisers, affiliate network services and benefits include payment processing, ad tracking technology, ad campaign reporting tools, as well as access to a vast database of publishers.  Affiliate networks work on a CPA (Cost per Action) based model which means that they can effectively deliver a 100% fill rate for publishers.  Some publishers, known as ‘affiliates’ or ‘media buyers’ will create or buy traffic using advertising specifically to promote campaigns from a network (rather than just to monetise existing inventory). According to Wikipedia the definition of an affiliate network is: “an intermediary between publishers (affiliates) and merchant affiliate programs” Since the late

Fresh Off Its $100M Round, Yeahmobi’s CEO Talks About China’s Role in the Global App Economy

Yeahmobi team

This post originally featured on the Yeahmobi blog here.  The content and mobile insights lead of AppsFlyer, Shani Rosenfelder, recently spoke with Yeahmobi’s CEO Peter Zou, and discussed market trends and China’s role in the global app economy. China is playing an increasingly major role in the global app economy. It is now the largest revenue generator in Apple’s App Store. It is projected to generate over $20 billion in mobile ad spend in 2016 and more than double that in 2018. It is therefore no surprise that more and more apps are taking their business to China, despite the challenges (localization, government bureaucracy, Android app store fragmentation, to name a few).
