Seattle, Wash. (PRWEB) July 29, 2016
TUNE, the leader in mobile marketing technology, today announced the addition of seven companies to its Certified Partner Program, having met a set of TUNE best practices and standards for the mobile advertising industry. GET IT Mobile, LifeStreet, Manage, myTarget, Mobupps, StartApp, and Unity Ads join a growing collective of advertising partners that adhere to certification standards spanning technical integration, engagement, and compliance in mobile advertising.
The Certified Partner Program was the first program in the mobile industry to formally establish, communicate, and report on best practices for the mobile advertising industry when it launched in July 2015. Designed primarily to give marketers more visibility into advertising partners that best meet their marketing campaign goals, participation in the program now includes 25 industry-leading advertising partners.
"We're proud to be recognized as a TUNE certified partner," said Mike Ng, CEO of Manage. "As a mobile performance DSP, our mission is to help marketers reach customers programmatically across consumer and social media apps. A program like TUNE's Certified Partner Program helps marketers easily identify and vet trusted partners who can deliver the quality and seamlessness they're looking for."
The program encourages advertising partners to support mobile marketing best practices - such as passing cost data to help marketers calculate their return on ad spend immediately.
“Our goal as always has been to unite the mobile ecosystem, bringing advertising partners and marketers together. When we built this program, we worked hard to make sure that the advertising partners and marketers were involved from the beginning to develop the standards,” said Cameron Stewart, General Manager of HasOffers by TUNE. “Every certified partner has invested time and resources to meet the requirements that are in the best interested of a marketer.”
In addition to expanding industry participation in the program, TUNE has also seen an increase in best-practice adoption. More than fifty percent of applicants have improved their best-practices scorecard by at least 20 percent in the last year.
Although there have been more than 100 applicants to the Certified Partner Program, only 25 have met the TUNE’s stringent standards for certification. Previously certified companies include AdColony, Amazon, Aol, AppLift, AppLovin, Fiksu, InMobi, Motive, Supersonic, Adperio, Vungle, Chartboost, Fyber, IconPeak, Opera Mediaworks, Phunware, Pocket Media, and Surikate. Companies interested in joining the program can apply to learn more.
