The Brand Objective

With an exclusive range of sports apps and a newly launched Sportsmate Podcast Network (SPN), the publisher intended to scale their programmatic revenues consistently across Australia and needed a partner that could deliver the required scale by monetizing their wide range of banner, and video ad placements. Additionally, the app developer was looking to add value to the revenue stream by optimizing the ad quality and improving the overall eCPMs.
The Brand Objective

The Solution

Sportsmate chose InMobi as a partner to drive their monetization goals. The app developer leveraged InMobi Exchange, the leading mobile exchange platform with access to over 120 top DSPs to monetize their ad inventory. By integrating with the single light-weight SDK, Sportsmate had greater transparency to the programmatic ecosystem, saw better ad quality, and increased yield consistently year on year while substantially maximizing revenues at scale. By optimizing placements with dynamic pricing on the InMobi Exchange platform, Sportsmate could define best-suited placements while having complete control over the share of inventory, thereby delivering unintrusive, seamless user experiences.
The Solution

The Results

With a right mix of intelligent ad placements and programmatic, Sportsmate clocked in record revenues consistently, and increased the overall value of the ad inventory.
