Swansea, Wales, United Kingdom, 2014/03/24 - The AdSpruce® Native Ads Server now enables video ad delivery and tracking on over 15,000 mobile devices - AdSpruce.com.
AdSpruce, the mobile video ad network and technology provider, has announced an upgrade to their industry-first Native Ads Server which allows video advertisers to dynamically target, deliver and track mobile video and rich media ad campaigns to any mobile device, from the latest HTML5 smartphone to Nokia, Symbian, Asha, Blackberry and more with compatibility for over 15,000 mobile devices. This unparalleled market reach gives advertisers the opportunity to target an exclusive, hard-to-reach audience that only AdSpruce can target.
An impressive development in its own right, the Native Ads Server is a unique end-to-end mobile video advertising solution for smartphones, multimedia phones and feature phones that allows AdSpruce to inject, track, deliver and click-enable video advertisements. The technology also includes a variety of targeting options along with in-depth reporting, allowing for goal-oriented advertising campaigns to be conversion optimized.
For advertisers this industry-first technology presents an opportunity to pursue mobile video advertising campaigns at scale with the levels of robustness, reliability and transparency that had previously been reserved to desktop computing.
Discussing the new development AdSpruce Marketing Manager, Ryan Davies said,“It was of paramount importance to us to create a solution that delivered reach at scale but without compromising on metrics. We know that campaign data is critical in proving the success of a campaign which is why our Native Ads Server is the only advertising platform that offers transparent and concise reporting for brands and agencies.”
For advertisers, however, this ad server presents the first real route to market for customer and revenue generation through performance-based campaigns on feature phones, a lucrative market which still accounts for a very high percentage of mobile phone users. A study by Gartner recently estimated that worldwide feature phone sales totalled 264.4 million units in the fourth quarter of 2012, outperforming smartphone sales of 207.7 million. According to the IDC (International Data Corporation) worldwide shipments of smartphones and feature phones in 2013 were on almost equal standing, with 49.9% of shipments being accounted to feature phones in Q1.
The majority of these feature phone users are situated in the emerging markets (such as the BRIC countries). Through AdSpruce advertisers can now focus on growing sales in these unsaturated markets with full tracking, reporting and accountability.
AdSpruce CEO Ian Mullins talks about the importance of feature phones,“There is such a high focus on smartphone targeting right now, but for us at AdSpruce being able to reach and track video ads on feature phones was of principal importance due to the sheer volume of the audience size. Using our technology, brands and agencies can now create a campaign and receive smart and insightful reporting from any internet-enabled mobile device included in the campaign target; this is an immense step forward for the mobile advertising industry and we’re proud to have pioneered it.”
AdSpruce (adspruce.com) currently delivers over 100 million video advertising spots every month and has a rapidly growing network of premium video publishers. To find out more about AdSpruce’s Native Ads Server you can visit the AdSpruce website.
