Ensure you have happy holidays with Fyber Marketplace by following our holiday tips


Not all months are equal – Monitor your pricing


When it comes to budgeting for ad spend, not all months are equal. At the beginning of the quarter, there is usually a sharp ramp-up period, which makes it a prime opportunity to seize. Mobile apps are an efficient channel to activate top-of-the-funnel and down-the-funnel KPI strategies. 


Always be on the ball and monitor pricing


eCPM bid ranges should be optimized towards the creative type. You can benchmark against global mobile app rates. 


To further maximize on inventory pockets that are performing well, Fyber can help cultivate custom deals to support optimized pricing and access incremental inventory. More on that below. 


Revenue in motion – make video ads work for your campaigns

Video ads are rapidly growing in popularity and are known to be a great way to monetize an app and introduce users to premium game content. Did you know 40% of Fyber’s mobile apps support full-screen video? Their success and completion rates are exactly why brands love them:

There’s more to video than just a creative 


  • Device type and orientation matters 
    • The orientation of an ad that does not seamlessly fit to the device can end up hampering the users’ app experience. To avoid losing the deeply engaged users during their session, we recommend you to optimize your ads to fit into the holistic mobile app experience.  For example, based on global monthly ad requests, we know that 80% of video is viewed in vertical orientation 320×480. 


Open Measurement SDK – ensure your ads were seen by consumers


  • We know how important it is for you to know that consumers are viewing the ads that you paid for. That’s why we now support Open Measurement SDK, guaranteeing that traffic is measured in line with the IAB and MRC standards of viewability. 
  • Ensure that your viewability-dependent campaigns are opted into the Open Measurement signals to scale mobile app campaigns targeting and measuring viewability requirements across Fyber’s holistic display & video inventory. 


Effectively scale, where it works for you


Mobile apps are the place to be. With 550M unique individuals engaging on their mobile devices monthly, it’s clear that apps are the top channels of media consumption – especially during this time of year. Recent data from App Annie shows time spent in shopping apps growing 49% YoY in Q1 2021 and an average consumer spend of $78, saw an uptick of 22% YoY.


Here are some best practices to consider to access scale:
