Kevel, Everli | July 08, 2022
Kevel (https://kevel.com), a leading API infrastructure platform used to build custom ad platforms, announces a new partnership with Everli, Europe's leading marketplace for online grocery shopping. Kevel’s ad-serving APIs will enable Everli to launch sponsored product offerings before rolling out additional ad placements in the future.
After securing €85.2 million in Series C investment last year, Everli committed to building out their retail media strategy. By integrating with Kevel, Everli launched this ad platform quickly, and Everli’s partners can now promote their products in search results using keyword targeting.
The sponsored ad units can be found across Everli’s four regional websites, as well as its app. Through Kevel’s UI, Everli has full control over its ad management, targeting, and reporting. Everli partners and the end consumer all benefit from this ad product, as it opens up a new revenue stream for Everli, while giving vendors more visibility and helping customers discover new products.
“In the past, advertising hasn’t been a focus within the grocery sector, but after seeing the success of retail ad platforms from Amazon, Walmart, Instacart, and others, we knew this was an important step for our growth,” says Francesco Carnielli, Head of Engineering at Everli. “Kevel helped minimize the time it took to integrate ads and allowed us to start earning revenue almost immediately. The sponsored ad units have already shown great success for merchants, and we plan on adding more ad units in the near future with Kevel.”
“A retail media ad platform offers huge benefits, especially when the retailer already has relationships with its merchants. Everli is already a leading online grocery marketplace, and an ad platform gives them the revenue to grow even faster,” says James Avery, Founder and CEO of Kevel.

Kevel is committed to the vision that every online retailer and publisher should be able to add privacy-focused ad revenue streams and take back the Internet from Google, Amazon, Facebook, and other digital monopolies. Customers like Bed Bath and Beyond, Ticketmaster, Yelp, Strava, Klarna, and many more have already launched successful ad platforms on Kevel. The company has received many accolades, most recently winning the 2021 Digiday Technology Award for Best Monetization Platform for Publishers and recognized by Insider as one of the hottest adtech companies of 2021.

Appsumer, InMobi | September 21, 2022
Appsumer by InMobi, a leading performance insights platform for mobile app advertisers, has launched Appsumer Starter, a complimentary automated cross-channel dashboard and reporting solution. The globally-available solution automates performance insights for app advertisers who are scaling across the channels they most commonly use—including Meta, Google, Apple Search Ads, TikTok and Snap as well as InMobi—delivering actionable high-level dashboards and granular reports through a centralized platform.
A recent Appsumer benchmark report found that scaling advertisers have struggled to diversify across channels compared to the largest advertisers since Apple’s App Tracking Transparency (ATT) was released. Scaling app advertisers' lack of internal data science and engineering resources puts them at a disadvantage when it comes to cross-channel insights, impacting their ability to exponentially scale.
“When you look at the massive changes app marketers have had to address—the impact of ATT, SKAdNetwork attribution and looking ahead towards Android Privacy Sandbox, ad measurement became much more complex, especially for smaller apps who bore the brunt,” says Shumel Lais, General Manager for Appsumer by InMobi.

Appsumer Starter leverages the core reporting infrastructure, designed for the scale of the biggest mobile app advertisers, combined with InMobi’s knowledge of diversifying the channel mix to deliver a solution enables app advertisers to reach for scale.
