AdJoin Publisher Value Proposition
AdJoin protects your premium sales offerings with the help of URL masking.
Most publishers have a premium direct sales strategy typically selling inventory internally at top end rates. More
often than not this accounts for a small percentage of revenue and doesn’t fill much available traffic.
Inventory not sold directly is then filled via a back-fill solution often yielding low eCPMs. This accounts for the
vast majority of advertising revenue.
AdJoin positions itself as a 2nd tier monetization solution. Using market leading data technology,
we repackage your unsold inventory into unique audience segments, increasing the value of your
Advertisers are happy to pay a higher CPM knowing they reach their desired audiences.
Users are happier because they see ads that offer relevance and context.
AdJoin offers a variety of solutions to optimize & increase revenue.
We support Standard Display, Video, Rich Media & Native ad formats.
