Set your audience in motion with Video Ads

Enriching its monetization capabilities, Minimob now supports serving video ads directly to mobile devices. A whole new section has been introduced under Minimob’s Monetization dashboard, which enables app owners and developers to display video ads through their apps. At the Video Ads section, app developers and publishers can add their apps and specify how to fill the advertising space that they have allocated within each app. Integration of an app with the Minimob platform is practically just embedding a few lines of code along with a JavaScript ad tag to the app. READ MORE

More visibility and transparency? Done!

Minimob now supports GAID for Android devices and IDFA/IFA for iOS devices, which enable accurate control over tracking and targeting while circumventing privacy concerns for mobile device users (GAID and IDFA/IFM are the unique, user-specific, anonymous and resettable identifiers for advertising purposes that have been established by Android and Apple, respectively). In addition, as it has become a rather common practice for affiliates to assign unique ids to each of their traffic sources, Minimob has recently been equipped with the ability to collect such information from our supply side affiliates, and utilize it.
