Your smartphone usage reveals a great deal about you. According to a 2018 report, A Decade of Digital Dependency, Britons are now so addicted to their phones that they check them every 12 minutes. It also revealed that 40 percent of adults look at their phone within five minutes of waking up, increasing to 65 percent of people under the age of 35.
In the UK, 83% of that mobile time is spent in apps, and engagement is a daily habit — people launch at least nine apps daily and around 30 on a monthly basis. Continue reading
There is a myriad of advertising partners available to buy media and help mobile advertisers to reach their target audiences, and advertisers need to follow clear criteria to find the right ones. In the world of data driven advertising, it is a common (and logical) practice to distribute advertising dollars based on the cost per conversioneach partner is delivering, and those delivering the best price, or in other words, the best ROI, will get the bigger budgets.

“Who turned out the lights?” was the concerned refrain that rang out across the hallowed halls of CES when the electricity decided to pack up in January.
“Where are my long johns?” was the concerned refrain that rang out at Barcelona airport when I arrived from the sun-dappled shores of Australia to the whispers of Storm Emma that stroked MWC this year – I mean seriously…I really did not pack the correct clothing for a Barcelona that saw the first snowflakes since 2010.

Last week was the hotly-anticipated Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, the annual event bringing pioneers and inquisitive minds together to discuss all things mobile.
Unfortunately, this year the seasonal Spanish sun wasn’t on our side. However, we made the most of our Ogury Networking Garden which, despite the rain and even occasional snow, was a great success. The unpredictable weather made for an unforgettable product launch of our latest mobile data solution, Active Insights. People were huddled under branded umbrellas in the middle of a sprinkling of snow, but we were delighted to see that there was still a substantial and buoyant crowd to watch our founders kick off the next chapter in our company history.

Many advertisers are now looking to internalise their media buying processes, and numerous companies are being set up to offer advertisers a media buying service in the programmatic space.

Remember the good old days? When you wanted to boost your organic traffic, so you embarked upon a UA campaign, knowing that you could rely on the organic multiplier to then increase your reach 1.5x or even 2x on a good day? Yeah, those golden days of bliss. Sadly, those days are gone.
Wait, what happened?
First off, organic app discovery is largely broken. The sheer amount of apps in the two major stores (over 2 million in both the App Store and Google Play) makes it nearly impossible for users to find your app in the hay stack, even if they happen to be looking for a similar one. With so many possibilities for every search term and keyword, the chances of a user landing on and installing your app are slim to none. Continue reading

Effective performance marketing is data-driven by design, demanding marketers monitor and measure mountains of disparate data points and performance “signals.” But marketers can no longer compete on their knowledge of “surface” data such as the cost per acquisition grouped by ad networks and partners. To gain and maintain competitive edge performance marketers must strive to distil granular data, including creatives and sub-publisher information, into deeper insights. Continue reading
