MOBILE ADVERTISING, AD NETWORKS
PR Newswire | May 10, 2023
Studio71, a global media company, has launched a Vertical Video sales offering that streamlines advertising for brands and agencies, targeting growing mobile audiences watching short-form vertical videos. This product uses consumption data across platforms to enable one-stop targeting and buying against audiences watching short-form vertical videos. It offers insights into user behavior on TikTok, Snapchat, YouTube, and Instagram Reels, helping advertisers reach key audiences despite different platform algorithms.
Studio71 optimizes vertical video ads through its proprietary tool, ARROW, which uses data on audience behavior, interests, and platform algorithms to target unique users across major social platforms within one campaign view. The tool allows the company to serve ads between content, optimizing for the platform and categories most relevant to the target audience. Additionally, Studio71 collaborates with creators to develop custom-branded content tailored to each platform's audience and categories, ensuring optimal performance for brands.
"Brands and agencies are purchasing each of these platforms individually, which can be time-consuming, inefficient, and biased," says Matt Crowley, Co-CEO of Studio71. "That's why we developed our Vertical Video sales product, which provides a mobile-first video solution that enables brands to reach consumers efficiently in targeting the right audiences wherever they are, regardless of the platform, while also optimizing for the most effective delivery based on that brand's KPIs."
Through its partnership with Oracle Moat, Studio71 provides a unified video view of ad performance, enabling brands to track their campaigns and make informed decisions about their marketing strategies. This new product allows brands and agency partners to target desired audiences through Studio71's premium talent network more efficiently and effectively, providing them with a streamlined advertising process that yields measurable results.
"Our platform-agnostic premium talent relationships make Studio71 uniquely positioned to solve the challenge of targeting across multiple platforms in one integrated social campaign. Our partnership with MOAT provides a unified video view of ad engagement and enhances social efficiency for brands and agencies," says Kristin Mason, CRO at Studio71.
With over 15 years of experience fueling the creator economy, Studio71 is an expert at helping brands reach their target audiences through its premium talent creator network. Studio71's new Vertical Video sales product arrives at a time when short-form video content is on the rise and data-driven advertising is increasingly essential. The product provides a comprehensive solution to the challenges of multi-platform advertising and is tailored to meet the needs of today's mobile-first audiences.

Adludio, the global AI-powered platform delivering attention-led and data-driven mobile advertising, has secured a further £2 million investment from Mercia, following an initial investment of £4 million in 2021.
This new funding round will enable Adludio to capitalize on its rapid growth in the US and launch a new fully-automated version of its platform. Powered by AI and data science, this will offer marketers a one-stop-shop for the automated design and delivery of ad campaigns that guarantee engagement.
Having produced advanced mobile creative for major brands including Ford, Land Rover Jaguar, Estée Lauder, Nike, Adidas and Microsoft, the announcement will see Adludio help even more marketers win the battle for brand attention. Currently sharing its expertise and technology with the IAB to develop this field, Adludio is redefining attention as a metric for success.
Paul Coggins, Adludio’s CEO, said: “At a time when privacy regulation is increasingly limiting the use of personal data, our sophisticated and unique combination of creative, media and AI is leading brand performance on mobile. With this additional investment from Mercia, the next stage of our AI-led platform, offering fully-automated capabilities, will provide brands and agencies the chance to translate user attention into profit.”
Founded in 2015, the company now has a presence across five US cities – New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta and Detroit - and also delivers services via resellers in Hong Kong and Singapore.
In 2022, Adludio achieved 50% growth in the US and, across the globe, has continued to increase its revenues. It has also boosted its management team with a number of leading industry figures, including Ian Liddicoat as Chief Technology Officer and Dave Ramsay as Chief Product Officer. The new version of Adludio’s platform, due to be launched in 2024, will fully automate many of its processes and offer customers a software-as-a-service (SaaS) product to manage their own campaigns.
Mercia was investing from its Northern Venture Capital Trust (VCT) Funds. Martijn Kleibergen of Mercia said: “With stricter privacy rules, relying on ‘cookies’ to deliver targeted advertising is no longer a viable option. Adludio combines strong creative campaigns with algorithms that optimize campaigns in real time to engage consumers without using personal data. This investment will enable it to continue its growth in the US and expand its client base with the launch of its new self-service platform.”
Adludio is an AI-driven technology company that delivers premium mobile advertising. As the primary means of consuming content, mobile needs to deliver interactive experiences to engage audiences, but the majority of mobile advertising remains static. Combining data-driven creativity, proprietary technology and automation with pioneering engagement metrics, Adludio delivers privacy-compliant mobile campaigns with engagement at its heart. With offices in London, Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Detroit and Chicago, Adludio is defining the next generation of mobile brand solutions in North America and EMEA.

AppLovin | February 03, 2023
One of the most popular mobile marketing and monetization platforms, AppLovin, has recently released its Creative Trends Report 2023, which lists the best performance-driven mobile ad trends for the year. This report will help mobile app developers and vertical marketers come up with creative ideas for their mobile ad campaigns.
To prepare this report, AppLovin’s in-house creative agency, SparkLabs, collected data from more than 200 applications, 267 installations, 22.4 billion clicks, 52.3 billion impressions, and tens of thousands of creatives in 2022 and researched the variables and influencing ideas that generated the highest return on investment (ROI), click-through rate (CTR), investor relations (IR), and return on ad spend (ROAS). The analysis shows that customization of an environment, character, or item, dramatic story narratives, real-time feedback, and voiceover messaging encourage more engagement.
CMO of AppLovin, Katie Jansen, said, "Our goal with this report is to provide marketers and developers insights and inspiration for achieving increased success for mobile ad campaigns. The report is packed with proven performance-driven ad concepts that have generated significant lift for their campaigns by capturing the majority of ad spend." She added, "Putting the best creative pieces together doesn’t always guarantee a win. To ensure that your ads are consistently high-performing, you need a combination of performance-driven analysis and continuous iteration and testing to find an optimal creative strategy for your app."
