LoopMe Media / The launch of a new social media data powered, personalised ‘ad inbox’

by on October 25, 2012

LoopMe Media has launched a new mobile ad format – a dedicated ad 'inbox' that consumers can click to reveal a choice of offers, apps, promotions and branded experiences in one place.

The solution has been developed to address familiar problems for app developers and publishers, who need to raise revenue from advertising but find that most ad formats are intrusive, not optimised for phones or tablets, or take users away from their apps.

Adding a LoopMe button solves all these problems. Users can click on the icon to open up an 'inbox' comprising a range of offers. They can interact with several advertisers in one session, as for web browsing they are not migrated away from the app itself. Instead, they can click on a 'back' button at any time.
