Data is like oil. It needs to be cleaned, refined, and enriched.


When brands advertise within apps, they work with very specific audience data. By advertising across a network of trusted apps that earn the trust of the user, brands can pull direct demographic and geo-location data that feed back to the advertiser.


For marketers, this means having the ability to stay on target when it comes to delivering your ad to audiences that matter, ultimately helping brands get the most value out of their campaigns dollars.

With hyper-accurate location and demographic data, driven by trusted premium apps that exchange value for this data, marketers can prevent wasting impressions and audiences; and start gaining valid insights and improved ad performance.  

The majority of ad requests in mobile exchanges don’t even include age data, and of those that do, 60% are off the mark
The result:
Bad data delivers irrelevant ads to audiences, costing you wasted dollars
