Who We Are

MoPub, is a mobile app monetization and promotion platform. MoPub is Twitter’s mobile publishing platform for promoting and monetizing downloadable iOS and Android applications. Described as “a hosted ad serving solution specifically for mobile”, it allows businesses to manage and optimize campaigns, analyze performance reports and metrics, and achieve higher eCPMs through the largest mobile RTB (real-time bidding) exchange.

MoPub’s SDK (software development kit) is specifically designed with the needs of mobile app publishers in mind. Its first-party features support major campaign management, budgeting and targeting capabilities, as well as the creation of formatted banner, full screen, video and native ads.

As a mobile marketing tool, MoPub can be a lucrative solution for individuals and agencies looking to generate serious revenue from their iOS and Android applications. 

For eCommerce companies and mobile-game developers in particular, MoPub’s install ad formats mean huge gains for a lower average CPAC (cost-per-app-click).

When mobile application developers download MoPub's SDK and are on-boarded to the platform, they get access to a variety of tools that allow them to mediate ad sales across various types of ad buyers, both directly and programmatically, and serve ads in their mobile apps. Programmatic ad sales flow through MoPub's proprietary mobile in-app ad exchange called MoPub Marketplace (aka MPX), where DSPs bid for apps' ad impressions in real-time (i.e. RTB; real-time bidding). The platform also includes robust Analytics for app developers to manage their ad revenue and user experience.

MoPub is a very large scale system serving about 6B requests a day to 50K apps running on 1B+ devices.
