Frameplay, the global leader in enabling intrinsic in-game advertising, and Kochava, the leading real-time data solutions company for omni-channel attribution and measurement, today announced the launch of a first-to-market impression to conversion attribution campaign in a mobile video game environment for a leading powersports company.

The results of the first-ever impression to conversion campaign proved to be extremely successful, with a 2% view-through attribution rate. For context, Google Ads Industry Benchmark reports an average conversion rate for display networks at 0.57%. Gamers that were new to the powersports brand were averaging 2.5 brand site conversions from Frameplay’s intrinsic in-game ads, with an audience consisting of 80% new users and 20% returning users.

We are constantly pushing the boundaries of what Frameplay’s industry-leading technology can do, especially when it comes to the valuable metrics performance marketers know and have come to expect with their digital campaigns. One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is how to measure conversion of intrinsic in-game ads. Our innovative partnership with Kochava allows us to provide advertisers with the same type of conversion metrics they would expect from other digital advertising performance options yet within a video game environment.”

Jonathon Troughton, CEO of Frameplay.

The Frameplay and Kochava partnership gives brands and performance marketers trusted measurement while supporting a non-clickable intrinsic in-game advertising experience that keeps players playing the game.

“Online gaming is one of the fastest growing sectors,” said Charles Manning, Founder and CEO, Kochava. “Our partnership with Frameplay takes it to the next level for growth marketers to capitalize on the opportunities to continue to fuel this growth and drive brand awareness.”

Marketron Pitch Introduces a Robust New Social Media Feature for Pitch, One of the Company’s Digital Advertising Platform

Marketron | October 13, 2020

Marketron, the leading provider of enterprise revenue management and digital software solutions, today introduced a robust new social media feature for Pitch, one of the company’s digital advertising platforms. Pitch offers a powerful set of tools and resources for broadcast sales teams to create, execute and manage digital campaigns that maximize their clients’ online advertising reach. Now, Pitch makes it easy and seamless to build proposals integrating Facebook, Instagram and Facebook Messenger ads into the overall blend of third-party digital tactics based on advertisers’ campaign objectives. By 2023, social media users in the U.S. are expected to top 250 million. Roughly two-thirds of U.S. adults report that they are Facebook users, and a large majority of Instagram users say they have made purchases as a result of social media advertising. “Clearly, social media offers tremendous opportunities for our radio customers and their advertisers to reach engaged and highly targeted audiences — but working directly with social platforms to purchase ads can be complicated, time-consuming and counterproductive,” said Jimshade Chaudhari, Senior Vice President of Product at Marketron. “Adding social to the third-party digital tactics in Pitch is the latest example of how we are constantly evolving our products based on customers’ needs. By removing these complexities, it is easier than ever for radio stations to create, deliver and manage highly integrated and customized digital ad campaigns.” With the new Pitch social tactic, sales teams are able to include Facebook, Instagram and Facebook Messenger ads in a fully integrated campaign alongside other digital elements such as display and video ads, geofencing, connected TV/OTT and search engine marketing.

The TAG Certified Against Fraud Seal is awarded to companies that maintain rigorous standards to combat fraudulent and invalid traffic in the advertising supply chain.

These certifications will give media buyers, and advertisers increased confidence in the steps taken to protect brand safety and reduce fraud through Anzu’s in-game platform. “As digital gaming continues to grow rapidly, we are pleased that forward-looking companies like Anzu are adopting best practices to combat fraudulent, invalid traffic and protect the brand safety of their ad partners,” said Mike Zaneis, CEO of TAG. “These supply chain challenges extend across all parts of the digital advertising ecosystem, so TAG is committed to ensuring its program covers gaming and other emerging digital advertising channels, and we look forward to continuing to work with Anzu on these important efforts.” To receive the IAB Gold Standard Certification 2.0 in the Full-Service Support category, Anzu took the necessary steps. These included implementing IAB Tech Lab’s ads.txt to tackle ad fraud and its Transparency & Consent Framework v2.0 to ensure GDPR and e-privacy laws are adhered to, undergoing a TAG Brand Safety audit, and endorsing the guiding principles from Coalition for Better Ads. “As the industry evolves, with areas such as gaming seeing rapid growth, it’s essential that businesses are upholding standards and best practices across the board. The Gold Standard is key to this, helping to create a digital ecosystem that is both responsible and sustainable. We’re delighted to have Anzu’s support in this mission, and many congratulations to them on becoming Gold Standard 2.0 certified,” said Tina Lakhani, head of ad tech, IAB UK.
