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.

Mary Meeker recently invited us to ‘re-imagine’ virtually everything. The growth of mobile, an ever-more-sophisticated array of smartphone devices and tablets in addition to faster connection speeds is ushering in a whole new world.

Smartphones are of course another stage in the revolution that started in 1995. The real outcomes of this revolution are all around us with almost every industry being reshaped by new competitors and the global realities of the digital age.  photo credit: Ed Yourdon via photo pin cc
