Simpli.fi, the Advertising Success Platform that provides programmatic advertising and workflow solutions to agencies, brands, and media companies, today announced ZTV, an addition to its comprehensive suite of CTV advertising solutions. ZTV is an advanced offering that delivers targeted CTV advertising at CPMs in the low teens, which is approximately half the $23 average CPM for CTV advertising, according to Guideline, owner of Standard Media Index. ZTV provides competitive pricing while delivering CTV advertising on high-quality inventory with precise audience targeting, granular reach, and frequency measurement at the household level.
With ZTV, advertisers are able to target campaigns using Simpli.fi's proprietary weighted ZIP code ranking system, based on U.S. Census demographic information and Automatic Content Recognition (ACR) TV viewing data, to identify and target the most relevant ZIP codes out of 41,000+ throughout the U.S. Campaign performance is improved by optimizing campaigns to the ZIP codes that index most highly to their desired audiences, based on demographic, viewing habits, conversion activity, and other factors.
With granular digital reporting and attribution capabilities, ZTV adds toSimpli.fi's robust CTV advertising solutions suite, including:
Household Addressable Targeting using both first-party data and custom audiences based on 3,000+ data variables.
Geo-fencing of locations visited by targeted audiences.
Behavioral Targeting leveragingSimpli.fi's unique unstructured search and contextual data, as well as third-party data segments.
Inventory targeting with Private Marketplaces (PMP) deals and allow lists.
Retargeting of audiences who have visited an advertiser's website or physical store.
ZTV brings significant benefits to multiple advertising use cases, including:
Local advertisers wanting to focus delivery of TV ads on the ZIP codes in their service areas at a lower CPM than typically required for cable zone targeting.
Performance advertisers looking to minimize CPA and/or maximizeROAS measures.
Multi-location businesses such as retail,QSR, franchises, and dealerships that operate in specific trade zones and/or zips. ZTV provides more granular targeting than DMA and Cable Zone buys, while also providing enhanced attribution and reporting insights.
National advertisers wanting to compensate for under-delivery of linear TV by targeting specific ZIP codes that have a relatively higher usage ofCTV streaming compared to linear TV viewing.
Media companies offering audience extension services that bundleSimpli.fi's CTV solutions with their owned and operated linear and CTV solutions.
"As the industry prepares for a cookieless future and more consumers continue to cut the cord, this capability will help advertisers reach their target audience while adding CTV into their media mix with a future-proof solution," saidPaul Harrison, co-founder and CTO of Simpli.fi.

InMobi, a leading provider of content, monetization and marketing technologies that help businesses fuel growth, today announced its strategic partnership with Ad Net Zero, the climate action program with the mission to accelerate the decarbonization of the advertising industry. This collaboration underscores InMobi's resolute commitment to sustainability, aligning with Ad Net Zero's mission to revolutionize the advertising landscape through decarbonization initiatives spanning ad production, distribution, and publication.
The global advertising industry is at a critical juncture, as it grapples with the environmental impact of its operations. Recent statistics underscore the urgency of the issue, with the internet’s greenhouse gas emissions comprising approximately 4% of the global total – surpassing even the aviation sector. Notably, the energy required to serve one million ad impressions is equivalent to the carbon produced by manufacturing 2.4 million plastic straws.
Recognizing the growing importance of sustainability in business decisions, InMobi has taken a proactive step by aligning itself with Ad Net Zero. As a leader in the ad tech industry, InMobi recognizes the significance of demonstrating sustainability efforts to both its existing clients and potential partners. A recent Deloitte survey highlights that 98% of consumers believe brands are responsible for contributing to a better world, and a considerable portion of consumers prefer to be patrons of sustainable brands.
By joining forces with Ad Net Zero, InMobi embarks on a journey to align with the organization's five-step plan, designed to minimize the carbon footprint of advertising:
Reduce emissions from advertising business operations
Decrease emissions stemming from advertising production
Diminish emissions from media planning and buying
Lessen advertising emissions from awards and events
Harness advertising's potential to drive behavioral change
InMobi's dedication to sustainability extends beyond rhetoric to measurable action. InMobi Exchange, powered by Microsoft Azure which boasts of complete carbon neutrality, stands as a testament to its commitment. Furthermore, data gleaned from the Microsoft Azure Impact Emissions Dashboard showcases InMobi's impressive emission reduction metrics:
InMobi's emission factor ranks within the top fifth percentile compared to average server emission factors
Server usage demonstrates a remarkable 80-90% higher green efficiency compared to alternative on-premise solutions, even high-efficiency ones
Direct SDK integrations, paired with machine learning, have driven emission reductions of up to 30%
"InMobi's partnership with Ad Net Zero symbolizes our dedication to ushering in a more sustainable era for the advertising industry," states Kunal Nagpal, Chief Business Officer at InMobi. "We are proud to stand alongside fellow tech companies and agencies, united in the pursuit of a greener, more responsible future. By fully embracing Ad Net Zero's comprehensive plan, we are steadfast in our commitment to minimizing our environmental impact while advancing the power of advertising."
"Ad Net Zero is thrilled to work with InMobi as they support more sustainable advertising solutions, contributing to our collective global impact. InMobi’s commitment is another significant step toward an eco-friendly future for the industry,” says John Osborn, Director of Ad Net Zero in the U.S.
InMobi’s partnership with Ad Net Zero follows its global sustainability commitment to Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), where InMobi is undergoing a 24-month goal validation process, at the end of which InMobi will commit to ambitious Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions reduction targets in line with SBTi sector guidelines and the GHG Protocol standards.
InMobi also continues its partnership for the second year with Givsly, the leading purpose driven B2B marketing solution, and shared the stage with Givsly, Dentsu, and IPG Brands at Cannes Lions 2023 to discuss the challenges, opportunities, and the path that can be taken for a sustainable ad tech stack.
Recently, InMobi served as the primary audience partner in AdTechCares’ campaign with Project Drawdown, a nonprofit organization working to reduce greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere. AdTechCares is a 501 (c)(3) organization that leverages ad tech to combat misinformation and keep humanity well, and InMobi is a founding member.
InMobi is a leading provider of marketing and monetization technologies. With deep expertise and unique reach in mobile, it is a trusted and transparent technology partner for marketers, content creators and businesses of all kinds. InMobi’s mission is to power its customers’ growth by helping them engage their audiences and build meaningful connections. Its affiliated businesses – Glance, an unconsolidated subsidiary that offers a lock screen-based content discovery platform, and video platform Roposo – help InMobi create new content and commerce experiences in a world of connected devices. InMobi is headquartered in Singapore, maintains a large presence in San Francisco and Bangalore and has operations in New York, Chicago, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Delhi, Mumbai, Beijing, Shanghai, Jakarta, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, Sydney, Melbourne, Seoul, Tokyo, London and Dubai.
