[article title="Partner Spotlight: 6 Questions for CrossInstall CEO Jeff Marshall" image="https://www.mopub.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/cross-install-headshot.jpg" anchor="crossinstall"] 1. What do you love about Mobile Programmatic? Basically everything. First off, the scale and transparency of the programmatic market. We also love the precision with which our algorithms are able to act on each individual impression. And finally, the growth! It’s exciting to watch how much of the mobile market continues to shift towards programmatic. 2. What’s your favorite MoPub product? I have to pick two: 1) MRAID. We’re focused solely on building interactive, playable ad units for our advertisers that are tailored to the individual user. MoPub enables us to run these ad units at a significant scale in a way you can’t do anywhere else. 2) The DSP demand partner portal. MoPub built an interface for DSPs to adjust their QPS and traffic filtering options, and to view graphs showing latency, timeouts, and more that let us stay on top of performance. 3. What’s the biggest misconception in the market right now? That video is the best performing ad unit available. We’re building interactive ad units that can be customized to the individual providing higher retention and monetization rates than video. 4. Crystal ball: what will we be talking about in the next 6-12 months? I think we’ll be talking more about the ad creatives and the experiences the mobile ad industry is putting in front of viewers. We are going to continue seeing those experiences improve at a rapid pace. 5. What’s one thing you wish you could tell mobile app publishers? We would like to tell them to make sure they enable playable inventory. These are high quality ad units that can pay very high eCPMs. 6. What stuffed animal do you have in the office? We have an elephant, but no one likes to bring it up. CrossInstall is a mobile-only DSP focused on algorithmic buying combined with interactive, playable ad creatives. [/article]
