xAd, the only global mobile-location ad platform, today announced that it has launched Location University, a program aimed at deepening marketers’ understanding of the fast-evolving mobile-location space. The courses, developed by xAd’s seasoned ad industry experts and trusted partners, will be offered online at a variety of levels through the company’s website.
xAd’s Location University courses will empower marketers with a greater understanding of the technology and insights behind accurate mobile-location advertising as well as new topics and innovations in the space. The courses will also arm marketers with essential knowledge, strategies and advanced insights necessary to create impactful mobile-location campaigns.
As the effectiveness of location-based mobile advertising continues to gain awareness, the space is expected to see significant growth in the coming years. BIA/Kelsey predicts that the mobile-location market will surge to $5.8 billion by 2016, accounting for 44% of total mobile ad revenue. As the only global mobile-location platform serving more than 1.5 million advertisers, xAd is committed to arming marketers with the tools they need to remain relevant and successful in the growing space.
