Handmade Mobile Entertainment is looking to explore new ways to enhance the mobile advertising experience and to increase ad revenues and eCPMs on a global scale. The challenge is to find new ad placements without compromising the users app experience and to better monetize their inventory on a global scale.
Starting February 2013, Handmade Mobile Entertainment has partnered with Smaato to add the new unique Postitial® ad unit (provided by IQzone) to its Android application Flirtomatic. This new ad unit displays Medium Rectangle (300×250) or full page ads when ending an app session. It is creating additional inventory and a new revenue stream to its inventory without compromising the user experience or competing with existing mobile advertising campaigns.
Adding the Postitial® ad unit to the Flirtomatic Android application is driving significant ad revenue uplifts without loosing users. Handmade Mobile Entertainment is achieving 5x higher eCPMs and 3-5x higher CTRs.
Using the new Postitial® ad placement was like getting ‘free money‘ without compromising the user experience. Integration was a breeze as the ad unit is already integrated into Smaato‘s SDK. This new inventory had no impact to the user experience and our eCPMs went up by over 5x.
