Deal Settings

The mobile programmatic landscape is evolving at a fast pace and so are the ways in which publishers and app developers are looking to monetize their inventory. One of the solutions that are gaining popularity is Programmatic Guaranteed (PG), allowing publishers to reserve part of their inventory and directly set up private deals at a pre-fixed eCPM price with selected buyers.

Publishers can enable Programmatic Guaranteed deals for their inventory through the InMobi Publisher Dashboard. The deals can be activated for different mobile ad formats such as banner, interstitial, and rewarded video, either via SDK integration or VAST tags for in-stream video ads.

Requirements

  1. The publisher must use Google Ad Manager (GAM) or MoPub as their ad server.
  2. Publishers must be willing to integrate via VAST tags or InMobi SDK.

Depending on the ad server being used, the following ad formats are supported:

Platform  

Banner  

Interstitial  

Full-Screen Video  

Rewarded Video  

In-Stream Video  

Native  

MoPub (via   
InMobi SDK)

To get a PG deal live, publishers need to create line item on their ad server (GAM or MoPub) and as a second step creates the PG deal entries on the InMobi Publisher Dashboard.

  1. Create a new line item of type Sponsorship.
  2. Add all targeting parameters against the line item.
