“PubMatic has been instrumental in developing unified specifications for native ads that allows us to deliver a great user experience,” said Greg Woock, Co-Founder and CEO of Pinger. “We’re excited to be working with them to scale our own native solution across a wide range of high quality media buyers.”

Benefits of PubMatic’s native solution include:

  • One Platform. PubMatic unites native advertising with programmatic and direct sales channels, across all screens, through a single platform.
  • High level of control and flexibility. Leverage architecture that provides seamless support for configurable ad units that can be targeted at scale, including content wall, app wall, news feed, chat lists, carousel and content streams.
  • Better monetization and standardization. Access top native demand sources, including Facebook and Twitter, and increase demand for native ads by choosing either a standard native ad unit or creating a customized unit.
  • Increased consumer engagement. Take advantage of the engaging nature of native ads at scale with personalized native advertising campaigns consistent with surrounding content and consumer interests.

“Native advertising is increasingly more important to the digital ad ecosystem, as native ads see much greater engagement,” said Kirk McDonald, President of PubMatic. “Our One Platform approach allows publishers to centralize and simplify their consumer and advertiser relationships across ad formats and screens, while scaling their native advertising revenue.”

This announcement comes at a time of rapid growth and product innovation for PubMatic, which recently announced a 500 percent revenue increase from mobile in 2014, not inclusive of the revenues from its mobile ad server business, one of the key components of the company’s end-to-end mobile solution for publishers.
