Introducing Mobile Truths

MobileTruth_insightMobile Truths is a series of spontaneous interviews from with different people from Locala to share their insights on the mobile programmatic ecosystem.

In the first of the series, Stanislas Coignard, Chief Strategy Officer at Locala, takes a few minutes to talk about some of the biggest challenges faced by advertisers in the fast growing mobile advertising industry.

Two of the most pressing challenges that we must address today is user experience and measurement discrepancies. Based on a recent Locala study conducted last year on over 80 mobile campaigns worldwide,

One out of two mobile user, actually do not arrive on a landing page that is in app or in a mobile site.

To address these challenges, advertisers should choose technology that is open and transparent. Advertisers should work with vendors that have been accredited by a third-party organisations, like the MRC, and should always have complete access into their campaign data. At Locala we are committed to these two key principles. For the industry to grow up and clean up, everyone should look towards these standards to really eliminate measurement discrepancies and gain user acceptance in mobile campaigns.
