Mobile World Congress 2019 Highlights:

TAB & PIA Group

TAB has had a very exciting 2018 with joining PIA Group and becoming part of the leading data-driven marketing service provider in Germany. With 11 companies and over 1100 employees, PIA provides expertise and service in 4 fields: consulting, insights and strategy; brand, creativity and co-creation; CRM, data and analytics; media, technology and platforms. With that being said, it was important to meet with our partners and clients to discuss all of the opportunities and significant added value that was brought to help us and them grow in mobile performance marketing. Not only TAB’s plans are to expand into new businesses, but our team is continuously growing to provide the best service we can. Moreover, with the ever-growing industry and companies branching out, it was good to hear about the focuses of other companies.

Mobile Advertising Fraud

Global advertising demand is growing strong with almost $560 billion spent by companies on digital advertising (WARC) with mobile internet proving to be the fastest growing ad medium in 2018. Due to this, ad fraud cost advertisers $3.9 billion in 2018 which is predicted to continue rising (Juniper Research). A growing fraud awareness has started shifting the industry as many affiliates have disappeared and only tech-driven, reputable and transparent companies that invest heavily to fight fraud are staying strong.

The cooperation between partners is essential to fight fraud and provide transparency and quality to our clients. Taking fast and clear actions will help to eliminate the problem in the future.Name of Author

The harder the blacklisting of fraud flagged sources, IPs and publishers is done, the safer and of better quality your users are. Creating a detailed verification process which is done as granular as possible will also help to clean the ecosystem in the industry. Making sure agencies are protecting their own systems and taking this seriously will allow for the future success in the saturated market and good relationships with clients, traffic partners and fraud tools.
