As we continue to expand our Amazon Mobile Ads service we are excited to announce a new promotion for developers to earn a guaranteed $1.50 CPM on banner ads during March and April 2014 for serving mobile ads through the Amazon Mobile Ad Network.
In order to qualify for this offer, you will need to integrate the Amazon Mobile Ads API in your qualified apps* and send the first ad request between February 3rd and April 30th, 2014. Here are the steps:
- Download the latest version of the SDK here.
- Integrate the Amazon Mobile Ads API in your qualified app and send the first ad request between February 3rd and April 30th, 2014. If you don’t have an app on Amazon yet, it’s easy to get started. Test your app using our updated testing service and submit it to us for free.
- Earn $1.50 for every 1,000 qualifying impressions displayed on the app during March and April 2014 (up to 2 million impressions per app per month).
* Existing apps already sending ad requests do not qualify. Existing developers who integrate the Amazon Mobile Ads API into another app for the first time will qualify. Qualifying apps may be distributed through other Android stores as long as they are distributed through Amazon.
Since we first launched the Mobile Ads API in 2013, we’ve already seen developers successfully monetize their apps, earn high CPM and achieve high fill rates with quality ads from Amazon and brands like Philips and Duracell. Here are some results from developers who used Amazon Mobile Ads (of course, your results may vary):
“The biggest contribution Amazon provided us in monetizing our apps was through superior eCPM in their Mobile Ads SDK, which performed 215% more than other Ad Networks, and a 77% fill rate in our Word Breaker app. Amazon Mobile Ads allowed us to quit our day jobs.”
“For our apps, the Amazon Mobile Ads network generated 2x eCPM compared to AdMob and Millennial Media.”
“After Padgram gained 3M users on iOS, we decided to launch our Android app exclusively on the Amazon Appstore for one month before launching on Google Play. While Amazon IAP monetization was similar to other platforms, the Mobile Ads eCPM was 1.5x higher than iAD.”
In addition to this promotion, using the Amazon Mobile Ads API in your app brings you a step closer to meeting the Appstore Developer Select program requirements, which gives you enhanced merchandising on the Amazon Appstore, Coins benefits and more.
