With such an offering, it was only appropriate that inneractive and the MMA would join forces. Offer Yehudai, inneractive’s President and Co-Founder, as well as Itay Gadot, inneractive’s VP Marketing will be joining the following MMA committees:
Global Mobile Advertising
Identify issues and areas of the global mobile advertising market where concerted efforts can help reduce friction and increase market liquidity, making it easier for buyers and sellers to conduct business. This will be done primarily by establishing standards for mobile ad unit sizes, as well as offering guidance on emerging platforms such as tablets. Members will also come to us to address issues that are confounding market development, such as the lack of uniform definitions in reporting (e.g., mobile rich media metrics) or the unique complexities of certain mobile platforms (e.g., mobile video).
Co-Chairs – Mobile Video Task Force – Will Kassoy, AdColony and Anne Schelle, Acta Wireless
Leo Scullin and Paul Berney (MMA) are driving the Rich Media team; Leo Scullin is driving the North American efforts. Leo Scullin, John Bianchi and Noreen McCaffrey (MMA) lead the compliance effort.
Initiatives: two working groups are formed and two more are in development.
- Mobile Video Task Force – this group is currently surveying the mobile video ecosystem to confirm a definition of mobile video, and to see what ad formats are supported within this definition. Also, two working groups will be formed to address 1) operational efficiencies and 2) technical gasp that remain outside of other industry efforts (i.e., ORMMA, MRAID, etc.,).
- Mobile Rich Media Metrics Reporting Task Force – this group has developed a set of definitions that cover the standard metrics that deserve to be reported exactly the same way by each and every player. The current work effort is complete and the group may reconvene again around other issues.
- UMAP / Emerging Platform Task Force – this effort is a continuation of the group’s assessment of ad unit sizes, and will periodically report on effective and popular ad units being adopted in new platforms, particularly tablets.
- MMA UMAP Compliance Program – MMA is rolling out and tracking the adoption of UMAP v.2.0 and is setting up a compliance page on the MMA web site for MMA members to attest to their compliance with the UMAP program.
The MMA is viewing mobile apps through the eyes of a brand marketer. What does a brand or their agency or media partners need to know about apps. This group is examining Mobile Apps as a media channel that needs to be optimized in the following areas: development, user design, distribution and monetization. The Committee has agreed to focus on the latter two, at first and have formed Task Forces supporting them. In the near future we will also give more attention to development and design, but for now we are instead looking at the broader issue of Relevancy, and how this is essential in the consideration of any mobile app. We will be presenting the initial findings in these three areas at the MMA Forum in NYC at a post conference session on June 14th. Later, we will try to apply our learnings to select market verticals, starting with Healthcare and Media & Entertainment.
Co-Chairs – Distribution Task Force: Jai Jaisihma, Open Mobile Solutions
Monetization Task Force: Patricia Clark, Zumobi
Initiatives: Once the Task Forces present at the MMA Forum, the committee will reconvene to determine how add to this body of work, including insights on development, design and marketing for mobile apps. A white paper is envisioned.
Well, we look forward to a long-lasting, mutually beneficial partnership with the MMA, we have been watching closely and are big fans. Great to be a part of this fantastic organization.
