PubMatic and xAd Launches Location-Enabled Private Marketplace for Premium Mobile ad Inventory
Oct 20 14
PubMatic and xAd announced the launch of the first ever location-enabled private marketplace for premium mobile ad inventory. Expanding on the companies' shared location-verified mobile marketplace announced in May, this latest offering will provide publishers, media buyers, and brands a new, high-quality channel to buy and sell premium location-aware mobile inventory. While mobile is often used to browse for products and services, most retail transactions are still happening in-store, a fact that has limited overall media spend due to the complexities of measuring the offline impact of mobile advertising. However this announcement represents a breakthrough in the effort to link mobile advertising directly to sales. PubMatic and xAd are doing so through the use of rich location data to pre-define categories of inventory originating from high foot traffic locations such as grocery stores, shopping centers and auto lots. The ability to geo-target potential consumers at key decision making moments that can influence visitation into physical store locations is widely regarded as one of the most direct ways to spur consumer engagement. Underscoring this point, a recent report from eMarketer forecasts that local-mobile advertising spend will rise to $10.81 billion by 2017, surpassing spending on national campaigns for the first time. The new mobile, location-enabled Private Marketplaces launched this month, serving tens of billions of monthly impressions in a variety of categories, including 2.4 billion monthly impressions in the Automotive category, 2.3 billion in Shopping, and 1.2 billion per month in the Grocery category. This inventory will meet PubMatic's high standard for providing premium mobile inventory, the majority of which is application-based, location-verified and aware, transparent, rich media-enabled, and will pass IDs whenever possible. The new Private Marketplaces will enable the targeting of a range of mobile specific parameters, including IDFA, MRAID, and lat/long.
