LeadBolt Revolutionizes App Monetization with Multivariate Testing

Did you know that LeadBolt is the first ad network in the world to release a multivariate feature for our advanced ad formats? It’s true! LeadBolt, the first ad network to pioneer the content unlocker on mobile devices, does it again with multivariate testing!

Multivariate Goes Mobile
Multivariate testing (or ‘multi testing’) is an advanced form of A/B split testing. This is a killer strategy to ad effectiveness, used by online marketing gurus across the internet. Multivariate testing involves setting up alternate versions of text, colours and other visual assets and then testing all combinations simultaneously to determine the highest performing ad settings for your users. The results are often surprising and unexpected.

How to maximize your eCPMs using LeadBolt’s Advanced Overlays

You’ve heard the buzz about LeadBolt’s Advanced Overlays. It’s true – our app developers are generating extremely high eCPMs with this signature ad format. The good news is your app can do that too!

Beat the banner blindness – multiply your eCPMs!
Advanced Overlays enable users to “unlock” another level of your game, view quiz results or gain access to exclusive areas in your app, by completing one of the offers on your advanced overlay.

Unlike banners, advanced overlays are more noticeable and hence generate higher eCPMs. The advanced overlay appears when the users are at the peak of their engagement– right before they reach to the content they desire. All these attributes make advanced overlays a very effective ad format which will maximize your eCPMs!

Why use LeadBolt’s Advanced Overlays?
You can fully customize the colors, text and design to fit the theme of your app and retain your branding. LeadBolt’s advanced algorithms ensure that the offers shown are relevant to your app users. Users have an option to close/skip the ad if needed, making this ad type very user friendly.

Let’s see how Advanced Overlays work:

Integrate LeadBolt’s unified SDK
Remember our latest unified SDK gives you access to all premium ad formats which generate much higher revenues than just banners. One SDK also enables you to test several ad formats to see which works best within your app.

Earn More With Notifications

Notifications are LeadBolt’s latest proven and engaging method of app monetization.

This new ad format is so effective, that the average eCPM’s for notification ads on Android & Apple iOS are currently $15+ on US traffic and great results internationally. Some publishers are achieving $100+ eCPMs for US traffic! We have both recurring and our unique on-demand notification type that puts the publisher in full control.

Create Buzz

Notifications allow you to display ads on the homepage of an app users’ mobile device, even when the app is not being used. If you are not convinced yet, check out our LeadBolt notification ad promotional video here.

Earn higher eCPM’s

Notifications generate significantly higher CTR’s, since users view them when it is convenient in their own time rather than during a game play or app usage. As a result, revenues are significantly higher compared to standard in-app banner ads. However, notifications can be effectively used in conjunction with banner ads as an additional revenue stream in your app monetization strategy.

Monetize Inactive Users

Have you ever wondered how long are the users going to stick with you app before downloading a new one? Depending on the popularity of your app, its active life span might only be few days long. With traditional ad formats, this is the only time you can monetize the users. With notification ads, you can reach and monetize inactive and intermittent users very effectively.

Transparency for Users

Developers can control exactly who gets notifications and how often. Once you log in to your LeadBolt account to create your ad, you will be able to easily customize the ad to suit your app, including frequency and targeting of user types. Users also have the option to opt out.

So what are you waiting for? Start creating your notification ads today!
