Finding a large group of customers or leads to onboard to app and encourage use. Can be a struggle to find the best fit leads for your product as there can be greater levels of analytical information to filter potential leads by. Does the job when running a campaign to onboard

SmartyAds DSP

SmartyAds DSP works mainly for campaigns that are not very concerned about brand safety. The main issue we have had with them has been related to fraud since they are resellers of a lot of inventory. If you need to run on traffic, that is 100% clean, and then you should try other DSPs.

Alternatives Considered

AdGear Advertiser

AdGear was the easiest tech to start on and it was my manager's choice. He enjoyed it though would get frustrated by the UI. I found it easy to use and set up; through lacking meaningful more insights into leads and lead generation to acquire important information when converting to users on the platform.

SmartyAds DSP

MoPub is more focused and tries to reach a more typical inventory. SmartyAds DSP covers the different consumer touchpoints across various formats and works on providing different inventory sources to differentiate from traditional DSPs. They copy the look and feel of traditional platforms, but they need to develop more their reporting tools.
