Revisiting Programmatic Strategies
Over the course of the last month, Internet browsing has surged, yet publishers are finding quite difficult to monetize this traffic. Unfortunately, programmatic strategies that worked before the COVOID19 era may be failing now. To help mitigate the risk, publishers should address the health of their programmatic setup.
Effective steps include; revisiting your floor strategy, synergizing floors across integrations, and checking ad server prioritization.
Global App Market Update: Usage & CPM
The global in-app ad market has been changing in unprecedented ways over the last few weeks. Two significant trends have been noted.
1.Usage: Game traffic is up. Way up.
2. CPM: Overall, rates are down
Despite rates being down, game developers still see an uptick in revenue because of the increased usage – their overall earnings. Unfortunately, non-game apps are facing a harsh reality- flat usage following down rates are killing revenue.
Fake Ads Still Standing
Since the outbreak started, misinformation regarding COVOD-19 has run rampant across the web.
