Airpush guarantees $5 CPM to U.S. developers using its Abstract Banners platform


Mobile advertising company Airpush is guaranteeing developers using its Abstract Banner ad platform in the U.S. a CPM of $5 between January and March 2015. It’s not giving quite the same assurance to international developers, but it’s still guaranteeing a $2 CPM. The promotion actually started on January 18, and will continue to March 18, and according to reports it has proven popular already. However, despite a $5 CPM being very attractive, there are a few rules which apply. Airpush’s Abstract Banners – transparent, animated banner ads that the company introduced last year – must be activated.

Security software company Avira has rolled out its own security-focused mobile ad network and has criticised other mobile ad networks of failing to protect user privacy.
