SECTION 2: PREMIUM BLIND NETWORKS

Premium blind networks in a nutshell:

• Higher proportion of premium publishers (i.e. mobile sites of well-known brands, like newspapers, broadcasters or operator portals), than blind networks, some on exclusive relationships.
• Attract more brand advertising, paid for on a cost per thousand impressions (CPM) model – i.e. you pay X for every 1,000 devices that visit/download the page. This is for marketers who want exposure, perhaps to create awareness of a new product. Costs vary considerably – campaigns targeted at top-tier inventory can be as high as US$20 CPM.
• Plenty of advertising will still be blind or semi-blind (i.e. targeted at a channel), but for a premium price you may be able to buy a specific spot on a site of your choice.
• Performance advertising is also available – and sometimes search advertising (based on key words) – paid for by cost per click (CPC). This is for marketers who want an active response to ads e.g. clicking through a banner to the advertiser’s site, click to download/call etc. The price of CPC varies with supply and demand, determined usually in a self-service auction. The cheapest option is run of network (RON) adverts (i.e. no targeting), which in some countries may start at US$0.05 - US$0.10 CPC.
• Some networks offer cost per action/acquisition (CPA) – where the advertiser only pays if the customer clicks through and then buys, signs up etc – or cost per download (CPD) for companies advertising mobile content/apps.
• Advertisers should expect a mix of self-service and direct sales and support and a wealth of targeting options.
• Publishers should expect to receive a majority share of advertising revenue – percentages are often negotiated on a case-by-case basis.

Mobile advertising network: Quattro Wireless

Established: 2006

Note: The Quattro cross-platform advertising network no longer exists. In January 2010, Quattro was acquired by Apple.

We used to have profiles for AdMob and Quattro Wireless, but since they were purchased by Google and Apple, neither were interested in updating their profiles. Since both networks were radically reduced in scope after the acquisition, the profiles became obsolete, so were deleted. Both Google and Apple have an open invitation to submit a profile when they are ready to share the information.

Why there is no information on AdMob or iAd networks?
