ironSource to greatly expand their in-app programmatic marketplace to include AR and video ad units.
Reaching 1.5B unique consumers a month, ironSource’s in-app programmatic marketplace already includes premium in-app video inventory at massive scale, with billions of video completions a month. This new development will add interactive ads to the mix, as well as affording brand marketers full transparency on viewability and attention metrics through Moat. Preliminary data from Moat shows ironSource in-app inventory is over 96% viewable, with completion rates above 85% - well above industry benchmarks.
“While brand demand for in-app audiences has increased - especially around video - the lack of programmatic access to direct, viewable in-app inventory at scale has represented a major hurdle for brands looking to run campaigns on mobile app traffic,” said Tal Shoham, COO Mobile at ironSource. “Our programmatic marketplace solves these issues by bringing high volumes of in-app video and interactive inventory into the programmatic ecosystem, and layering viewability verification, audience tracking, and anti-fraud tools on top to create a perfect environment for brands to engage with their target audiences.”
"With a large portion of the top 100 grossing apps using our video monetization platform, we’re able to give brand marketers access to premium in-app supply,” continued Shoham. “But beyond the high-quality audiences that entails, we’re also able to provide brands with a positive in-app ad experience for consumers, with interactive, HD video, and even AR ad units which users actively choose to engage with.”
This development will also help app developers using ironSource’s platform to increase their average revenue per daily active user (ARPDAU), by increasing competition for inventory.
“Our mobile video platform has largely been fueled by performance advertisers, growing to become the largest in class and driving significant revenue for our developer partners. But with over a billion monthly active users reached and 6B monthly video views served through our platform, we’re in a unique position to open up this inventory to brand advertisers and provide them with the necessary tools to buy effectively,” said Shoham. “Opening up programmatic access to our direct inventory represents a significant upgrade to the capabilities of our monetization platform, unlocking programmatic demand and adding more opportunities for our publishers to extract the most value from their in-app inventory and scale their app businesses.”
