Native advertising is the way forward when it comes to engaging users with products, and in-game product placements is a highly effective way to engage users in the world of social, mobile and free-to-play video games. With the help of MediaSpike, brands can easily put relevant and targeted product placement into any social or mobile game. The selling point is that the service is aimed at both advertisers and developers, and that it has been built by actual game developers who understand the ins and outs of game advertising, removing many of the hindrances that may normally be associated with this process. The MediaSpike API makes this functionality available to developers.
SiteScout, a Canadian self-serve media buying platform provider, announced the launch of the final, completed version of the SiteScout API which allows developers programmatic access to the SiteScout real-time bidding (RTB) platform. The company has just added the Campaign Management component to the API which allows users to fully control their SiteScout campaigns.
