YouAppi Launches Rewarded Video Solution Delivered through Lightweight SDK Offering New Revenue Opportunities for Publishers and App Marketers
Rewarded videos and video interstitials, delivered programmatically and via premium demand partners utilizing YouAppi’s event-driven targeting will create new revenue streams for publishers while delivering profitable app users
San Francisco, CA – February 23, 2017 – YouAppi, a leading mobile growth marketing platform for premium mobile brands, today announced the company’s lightweight Software Development Kit (SDK), an extension of the OneRun™ Platform, enabling rewarded videos and video interstitials for publishers and app developers.
The SDK, which equips publishers with the ability to offer rewarded videos and video interstitials, leverages YouAppi’s Post-Install Event-driven targeting, which considers over 60 segmentation parameters, including device and geographic location. The SDK also integrates with premium mediation partners, AdMob (Google) and MoPub (Twitter), to ensure that the ads are viewed by the right users.
What sets YouAppi’s lightweight SDK apart from others is the unique technology that powers the company’s rewarded video offering. Based on the values of gamification, YouAppi’s rewarded video encourages user engagement by providing a value exchange between users and app developers. Engagement is further maximized with customizable and interactive video end cards. By making Rewarded Video ads opt-in, the company is providing users with complete control over their user experience.
Additional functionality which serves to differentiate YouAppi’s lightweight SDK includes sophisticated precaching which reduces latency, thereby creating a seamless user experience. The SDK also utilizes contextual optimization and behavioral targeting based on the ad’s placement within the app, which creates a better and more relevant experience for the user. For example, in a news app like The New York Times, an ad for a travel app will appear in the travel section OR will be presented to a user with a behavioral interest in travel.
Publishers benefit from a lightweight SDK which enables a fast and easy integration across multiple platforms. By giving their developer/advertiser partners the option of running distribution campaigns, publishers can use the SDK to acquire new users.
Brand marketers seeking to acquire new users for their apps (or re-engage inactive users) will profit from direct supply with global reach supporting a wide range of ad units, such as rewarded videos and video interstitials. To ensure marketers acquire the right users at the optimal price, the SDK facilitates campaign optimization based on Post-Install Events – the actions deemed valuable by the marketer that are taken after the install by users. This proprietary matching and predictive technology, powered by matching, has been the cornerstone of YouAppi’s OneRun platform since the company’s founding.
“The roll out of YouAppi’s lightweight SDK provides publishers with new revenue streams from ad units which will make their app marketers happy while rewarding users,” said Moshe Vaknin, CEO & co-founder, YouAppi. “Everyone wins with YouAppi’s lightweight SDK.”
