OpenX Pushes Programmatic Into Mobile Native Inventory With New Ad Exchange

OpenX_Logo_highresOpenX Technologies announced launched a private real-time bidding exchange that caters specifically to native ad inventory on mobile devices.


The exchange, called Native O|X, is meant to help app develpers and mobile publishers buy and sell native ad inventory at scale — and couples the two hot trends of programmatic and native for the first time. The ad units, injected in-stream among content, link to app stores available on users’ devices. The inventory will be available to a pre-approved group of advertisers.


openx native moblie ad exchange“In speaking with OpenX buyers and sellers, it’s becoming clear that a fundamental shift is underway in mobile advertising: more than half of the effective mobile campaigns are now being delivered in a native format,” explained Rob Kramer, general manager, mobile, OpenX. “With the launch of Native OX, we’re bringing programmatic to native and mobile. Specifically, we’re helping bridge mobile-first companies and partners who want a seamless multiscreen experience at scale, which is what they need. And we’re taking it a step further from an ad unit perspective, in that our programmatic ad units will support a diverse set of creative attributes that will help publishers deliver a customized, differentiated ad experience within their apps.”


Tagged and IconApps are among the publishers who have signed on. Launch partners also include demand partner RunDSP, mobile ad network SponsorPay, and ad creative platform provider Celtra.


“As a top featured lifestyle app in the App Store, it’s critical to us to integrate advertising in a seamless way into the user experience of our app,” said Al Eisaian, founder and chief executive officer of IconApps in a statement. “OpenX worked with us closely to iterate and design an ad experience that works as both a premium user experience as well as a high yield ad unit.”


Targeting options on O|X Native include by GPS location data, demographic and contextual criteria.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
