Case study Advertise

Background are a Cost Per Action (CPA) affiliate media network who produce favorable conditions for both publishers and advertisers. Using their experience in online marketing, they have developed a unique platform that provides publishers access to exclusive offers, and advertisers an optimal place to buy digital advertising services.

As anyone in the ad tech industry knows, targeted ads are a necessary key to unlocking success. But success isn’t always possible when your data is lacking accuracy or is returned with inadequate speed. Thankfully, 51Degrees provided the perfect solution.

The Challenge

At the core of online advertising and ultimately, the web experience, you want your adverts to provide value to your users, thus encouraging them to click the ad.

One method of encouraging those all-important clicks is by ensuring that you serve adverts optimized for the device, including the wide range of smartphones and tablets available. For Advertise, they needed to detect crucial device properties from users who clicked the ads, including the make and model of the mobile device alongside the operating system.

With this device information, Advertise could be confident that the content they serve is displayed correctly regardless of the mobile device. But they couldn’t collect this information on their own.

The Solution

Harnessing the power of Device Detection, Advertise were able to enhance their ad platform with additional device information to really zero-in on what devices are used by their audience.

There are over 270 different properties available within our real-time data service, including over 120 properties specific to the device. Our device database contains all you’d ever need to know about a device, including its price at launch, screen size, and its age and date of release. Advertise used this information to create targeted ads for a specific set of smartphone or tablet users.
