Rich Media Ads Fly on Jumptap

“The demand for relevant, dynamic content is growing,” says Paran Johar, CMO at Jumptap. “Advertisers want targeting combined with ad units that engage consumers and promote brand awareness. With ad units that facilitate user interaction including video and audio, rich media offers higher performance levels and greater measurement. These units, paired with Jumptaps superior targeting capabilities, result in higher CTR and create powerful brand impact.”
