Is late night where all the (video) action is? We tackled this question head-on and analyzed more than 12M outstream video impressions from our Hyperplay and Windowplay mobile formats.
With the increase in the number of campaigns utilizing the Pull format, the A|B Testing Lab decided to start experimenting to see if we could improve performance even more.
Mobile outstream video offers a more respectful user experience than pre-roll and demands that success be measured by engagement, not just completed views.
Our research shows two-thirds of consumers prefer better-designed mobile ad experiences and find the current state of mobile ads to be frustrating, disruptive and boring.
As brand marketers continue to shift budgets from desktop to mobile, many of them are also porting over the exact same measurement mentality around “the click.” Brand Marketers should optimize for mobile engagement over clicks (and by doing so they’ll actually get both).
Since our early commitment to Google’s AMP project, Yieldmo has continued to contribute to this meaningful initiative in pursuit of offering consumers an optimal experience across the mobile web. Recently, the Yieldmo Delivery and AMP teams partnered together to develop a solution to the problems caused by multi-size ad requests.
This week, the IAB announced a new ad portfolio at IAB MIXX, an annual conference on digital advertising’s new world order. The imbalance between the prevalence of mobile in today’s media mix and the reign of bad ad formats and the subsequent rise of ad blocking has led to an industry reinventing itself.
Yieldmo and Moat have partnered to measure viewability and to build a broader foundation for mobile-specific user engagement metrics, which help paint a truer picture of how consumers are paying attention to media campaigns beyond clicks and impressions.
Marketers ought to leverage the signals of intent from search and social while also accessing high-quality publisher content with user-friendly mobile ad formats.
Contrary to popular belief, viewability rates in mobile advertising might not be the end-all, be-all metric for advertisers and agencies.
In an era where the revenue and experience of publishers’ owned and operated pages are threatened by ad blocking and walled-garden platforms, better mobile ad products can help keep editorial experience great and raise marketer demand for great publisher pages.
The digital ad industry still propagates formats consumers hate — not just interstitials but ‘sticky’ banners and video ads that pop-up in the content stream — because they perform “well.” And that isn’t good for anybody. Every stakeholder — publishers, marketers, readers — agrees we need to find a better way. At Yieldmo, that’s precisely what we’re doing.
Brands can’t get enough mobile video advertising. Demand is off the charts — eMarketer expects mobile video ad spend to increase 47% to $4.24B this year alone — and as a result the premium pre-roll well is drying up.
We build mobile ads for human beings with the goal of changing the mobile advertising landscape for the better. The first publisher to embrace our philosophy back in 2012 was TheStreet and today we’re thrilled to announce we have expanded that partnership to new heights.
We all know that waiting for slow mobile web pages to load is beyond irritating. Yieldmo has always been focused on improving the user experience of publisher content on mobile.
By learning how to leverage ‘share urls’, you can add enormous value to a Yieldmo campaign. An easy to assemble url can help turn an ad click into a brand related tweet, a facebook like, and much more!
Here at Yieldmo, we have been working with marketers since day one. It may come as no surprise that potential customers who see ads on their mobile devices will switch to desktop to complete a purchase.
Our mobile devices are with us everywhere we go. We expect to access free content in the moment and on the go. Although being a major part of our content experience, mobile ads rarely make a connection with us.
We all know that the content that we consume via our mobile devices are often subsidized by the advertising revenue. But people hate ads…but want their content for free. Yieldmo is working to solve this problem by creating a better ad experience through design and data.
One of the great things about Yieldmo’s ad formats is their level of customization. For instance, many formats allow you to customize text, background or button colors. However, what do you do when you don’t have the code for a particular color you’re trying to match?
Optimizing our mobile ad formats to guarantee the maximum yield.
