Triton Digital today announced that it is the exclusive ad sales representative for XAPP ad inventory in JAX, a mobile audience premium ad service that enables over 300 radio stations and podcast publishers using the jacapps mobile platform to monetize their mobile apps with XAPP ads.
We’ve come a long way in just one year. At 12:04 pm on April 8, 2014, the first XAPP Ad was served on the NPR News mobile app. The advertiser was Lumber Liquidators and the call to action was to download the company’s Floor Finder app.
We first introduced XAPPmedia a year ago this month and our first product, XAPP Ads, was designed to help Internet radio and audio streaming services increase the value of their advertising inventory. Over the past year, we have been busy. We worked with our customers, partners, advertisers and ad agencies. Many saw the bigger picture behind interactive audio, including opportunities beyond advertising.
Interactive Audio Ads were introduced to the world on April 8, 2014. Since then, advertisers as diverse as Amazon, Ford, Cleveland Clinic, Fox Searchlight Pictures, StubHub, SmartCar, Columbia University and others have adopted the solution. What were the results? Conversion rates far higher than other mobile advertising formats.
In October, I commented on voice recognition in Connected Cars and an AAA Foundation study concerned with distracted driving. Last week, the Wall Street Journal had a different take on the situation. It wasn’t about safety issues with voice commands in the Connected Car -- it was about consumer complaints.
M&C Saatchi's Tech Blog yesterday focused on the future of Ad Tech. The examples highlighted how advertisers are leveraging technology to reinvent consumer engagement through video, with 3-D banner ads, digital out of home (DOOH) and audio. Blog author Tim Spencer says the following about XAPP.
Many people have asked us whether they could get a demo app to better understand the user experience and show colleagues what the XAPP Ad format enables. Previously, we only made this available to integration partners, but now anyone can download the XAPP Ad demo app for their iPhone.
