Announced on Tuesday, MoPub, a mobile ad exchange owned by Twitter, is making impression-level revenue data available to publishers. The company is partnering with seven third-party attribution platforms to deliver the data. These platforms include:
This data will be delivered in real-time once an ad impression is triggered and will include several data fields, including the demand source, ad placement, currency and country information.
With this granular data, mobile app publishers will have access to deeper insight into user acquisition campaign performance. According to MoPub, publishers will have the flexibility to process the data themselves. They can even send the data through one of the seven third-party platform partners that has access to the data via an integration with MoPub (versus having to create a new API).
“We are extremely excited about the level of granularity and precision the impression-level revenue data from MoPub provides,” said Scott Koenigsberg, SVP of product for the social game development company Zynga, “With a more accurate and precise view of the ad revenue across each user and campaigns, we are able to spend more effectively and efficiently across different marketing channels and double down on what works.”
The impression-level revenue data that MoPub supplies will benefit any app developer aiming to monetize their app with ads in-app purchases. The value added provided by the third-party integrations will make it easier for publishers who are already using those platforms to analyze the data. They are given granular details on the campaigns that generate the highest return on in app ads and purchases.
“Publishers could use the data to identify users who are valued higher by advertisers, and could potentially generate higher earnings by more strategically offering ad opportunities,” writes MoPub, “The publisher might also decide not to funnel these users into an IAP model unless the potential for revenue is higher.”
