Sublime Skinz expands mobile offering with the addition of two new premium ad formats, with highly engaging and interactive features  

London, UK, 26th February 2018: Sublime Skinz, the leading solution for high-impact, non-intrusive digital advertising, today announced it will launch two new interactive mobile ad formats – The Capsule and The Video – at this year’s Mobile World Congress. These innovative, premium formats provide a variety of features to enhance the user experience.

Created for mobile web campaigns, the new formats – which can be sold both direct and programmatically – are designed to elevate engagement and create opportunities for more effective branding. Both consist of two banners positioned at the top and bottom of the webpage, along with a side panel that displays content when swiped open by the user.

Both of these new formats, while enhancing the user experience, also boast an impressive engagement rate of 4-5%. The Capsule’s responsive panel has been developed with HTML5 and is optimised to offer a host of interactive elements, including vertical and horizontal slideshows, video, configurators, 360° product views, and store locators. The Video format has been designed to deliver enhanced video ads seamlessly to users, and can be optimised for a single vertical or traditional asset.

The Capsule and The Video mobile formats provide advertisers with comprehensive KPI feedback, including impressions, page and product views, panel engagement rates, global click-through rates, and average video completion rates.

Andrew Buckman, Managing Director EMEA at Sublime Skinz said: “These new formats further demonstrate Sublime Skinz’s commitment to providing non-invasive but powerful solutions to advertisers and agencies. With 73% of people in the UK using their smartphones to access the internet on a daily basis, it’s more important than ever to remember that the user is king. These two new formats provide a streamlined and engaging experience that continues to put the user first with interactive and non-intrusive ads. For advertisers, the high engagement rate of the panel and the extensive KPI measurements are attractive prospects that ensure they reach their target audience, while also allowing them to effectively manage campaigns.

As more digital out-of-home inventory becomes buyable programmatically, new use cases are appearing. Mindshare Turkey ran a month-long campaign for MAC Cosmetics on the digital out-of-home inventory integrated to the Awarion programmatic OOH exchange in two busy malls where the brand has stores.

As research shows, proximity of out-of-home positively correlates to store visits for advertisers. With data coming from the brand's store analytics platform on how many visits and purchases were occurring on an hourly basis, optimisation on when and how frequently to buy DOOH became possible. Using Platform 161 DSP, real-time changes to the campaign was possible without the need for manual communication.

In addition to the targeting strategy, a creative strategy was deployed in order to show the right creatives at quiet and busy moments of stores. The results of this programmatic OOH campaign optimised to first-party data was staggering; week-on-week sales increased 28% compared to 13% at malls where non-programmatic DOOH buys were carried out through traditional insertion order buys.

Watch the case study here.

HP's Sprocket printer product has a niche set of target audiences: travel enthusiasts and students. By running programmatic digital out-of-home campaigns through Platform 161 DSP and data on these audiences coming in from a proximity marketing company, Blesh, OMD Turkey left the campaign on auto-pilot to run in two malls when the target audiences were highly concentrated.

The real-time targeting was possible through Blesh's integration with Awarion's out-of-home exchange, enabling immediate activation of a campaign based on such criteria. By executing a campaign this way, OMD was able to create significant media efficiency for their client and show different creatives for each target group, whenever one was higher than the other. Since the campaign was run from a DSP, lat-long targeted line items for the digital realm ran in-sync to the programmatic OOH campaign, targeting these audiences through multiple channels and creating a unified point of media buying and reporting.
