Quixey Launches Deep View Cards™ for Ads, Providing Better Access and Engagement with Mobile Apps

Quixey announced Deep View Cards for ads a new way for advertisers to deliver mobile app content and functionalities. Quixey is transforming how advertisers engage with consumers on mobile, with Deep View Cards outperforming other formats in conversion rates by up to 3x in direct comparison tests. Deep View Cards for ads can be used in a variety of ways. For example, Quixey has partnerships with U.S. and global companies including Adelphic, Alibaba, AskMe, Opera Mediaworks, and PocketMath; publishers such as Times Internet; and with advertisers on social networks through Flightly. To date, Quixey has served over 300 million Deep View Card ads to its advertising partners. Since Deep View Cards are programmatic, they help advertisers get their content discovered and surface the most relevant app functions to users at scale. In an A/B testing campaign on ad platforms, Deep View Cards delivered 130% to 150% higher engagement in click-through rates compared to other campaigns. Quixey uses a combination of content acquisition techniques and patent-pending native app mining technology, allowing Deep View Cards to be dynamic and rendered in real-time. Each Deep View Card represents the content and actions embodied by a specific function of an app, such as making a purchase or finding flight deals.
