GAN Develops New Revenue Sources for Mobile Game Developers with Premium Video Advertising Print E-mail
Written by GAN Game Ad Net   
Thursday, 15 August 2013

GAN Game Ad Net, specialist for games-related advertising and media services, enables smartphone and tablet game developers to integrate advertising videos in mobile games using the company’s own Mobile SDK.

Hamburg, 15 August 2013:  The video campaigns are sourced directly from leading international agency networks and contain carefully selected premium-quality material, e.g. well-known brands or current movie trailers. This makes GAN the first provider to offer a sustainable solution for app and game monetization which lets companies avoid the risk of feeding their own valuable users video ads from competitors. Video ad campaign integration is now available to mobile game providers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Services will be extended to mobile developers in the UK, France, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands in the fourth quarter of 2013.

At present, GAN Game Ad Net already delivers more than 50 million online advertising and promotional videos per month in casual, browser and social games being played by millions. Demand from advertisers to place video ads on mobile devices is reaching similar proportions. GAN is the first company to enable mobile game developers to integrate premium-quality videos with an average length of 10 to 30 seconds into their games at any given point. From pre-roll in-game videos at the start of the game or between levels, to the activation of paid content by watching commercials directly in the game, the integration of the videos is unobtrusive and does not interrupt the gaming experience. The SDK is based on cutting-edge technology and at the same time, so straightforward that it can be integrated into mobile games easily.

Marlon Werkhausen, co-founder and Managing Director of GAN Game Ad Net, on integrating video advertising into mobile games: “The Mobile SDK is our response to the overwhelming demand from both game developers and advertisers. Games are the driving force behind the growth of the mobile market. Our advantage is that through our long-term experience we are thoroughly familiar with gamer behavior and know very well what works and what doesn’t. At no time will ads for other games or ‘subscription traps’ be delivered via the GAN Ad-Server. In fact, the GAN video rotation only contains premium-quality advertising videos for well-known brands. This is the first time that publishers are given a reliable and sustainable solution to monetize their own inventory in a secure and lucrative way.”

The market for mobile games continues to grow rapidly. Due to this fact, the competitive pressure has risen to unprecedented levels. Publishers are having an increasingly hard time presenting their mobile games prominently in the vast array of app stores. GAN Game Ad Net delivers solutions for an effective integration of advertising in mobile games to unlock new and stable sources of revenue. GAN provides comprehensive consultancy and support to mobile game developers for optimal ad integration in their games.

Meet the GAN Game Ad Net representatives at gamescom in Cologne from August 21 to 22, 2013 (Hall 4.2 / B-031 - D-030). You are welcome to schedule an appointment and learn more about the premium monetization solutions.
