    Go2mobi is a Demand Side Platform (DSP), providing you traffic from 12 different ad exchanges – the biggest being MoPub, Smaato and Nexage.

    The majority of traffic coming from those 3 ad exchanges is in-app. Moreover, Smaato and Nexage also have some considerable mobile web traffic.

    The ad formats you can find on Go2mobi include mobile display banners, video, rich media and native ad traffic. This already suggests that the ‘classical’ promotion of sweepstakes and antivirus offers (which tend to work best with pop traffic and aggressive landers) won’t be the main focus on this platform. In fact, it’s really more about games, apps and other mobile content offers.

    Go2mobi is a self-serve mobile programmatic DSP. However, if you’re among the big spenders with a daily ad spend of $1,000 and you have your campaigns live for at least two weeks in a row, you might be upgraded to a managed account.

    This basically means you’ll have a dedicated account manager who’ll manage, monitor and optimize your campaigns for you based on their performance. A managed account also provides you some useful exclusive features like demographic targeting, which can help you step up your game to a whole new master level!

    In order to get a good feel for the volumes available on the various ad exchanges before launching your campaign, you can check Go2mobi’s detailed “Inventory” section.

    There, you’ll find info about the volumes of each ad exchange, becoming able to drill it down to device-related info such as OS or device brand (‘Make’), carrier, placements, location, and size of creatives.

    If you plan to launch a campaign for an offer in Nigeria, for example, you simply click on “Exchange Name” and “Location Name”, put “Location Country” in the filter and then write “Nigeria” in the blank space. You’ll see how much traffic each exchange has in this GEO.

    Then, of course you can go deeper – if your offer is only available for Android, you might want to add another filter for “Device OS LIKE Android” and check the volumes per ad exchange.

    From there, you can choose to “Drill” into a specific exchange (e.g. Smaato in the screenshot below) and select “Creative Size” in the Drilling Options in order to see the volumes of each ad size in Smaato for Android in Nigeria.

    You’ll see all your chosen “Drilldowns” in the space between the filters and your results and can easily navigate between the several levels of your ‘drilling’.

    In total, the most popular and highest volume ad sizes on Go2mobi are 320×50, 300×250 and 320×480. However, this will obviously vary among the several exchanges and also per geo. In their biggest volume exchange, MoPub, you can also add native ads to this list, as it’s their second largest volume format (on Go2mobi, native ads show up as “0x0”).

    In addition to the “Inventory” section, you should also check the Go2Mobi Knowledge Center before launching your first campaign. It contains a lot of useful info about the average CPMs for the top ad formats on three top ad exchanges, their campaign and creatives policy, other useful guidelines (with videos), tips about campaign creation, and your account details.

    Campaign Creation
    Moving on to the campaign creation process, we start with the Destination URL. Here, you can insert the offer link (with a special mention for the conversion tracking tokens available) or your tracking platform’s campaign URL.

    Among many options, you’ve got your standard parameters available, such as Frequency Capping, Daily Budget per Placement, plus other budget options. Session Depth will define when a user will see your ad: the first ad that’s ever displayed to a user is Session 1 and the 10th ad displayed to that user is, for example, Session 10. To finish, “Date selection” and “Save” to activate the campaign.

    What about bidding? You’ve got two options: Standard CPM or Auto bidding. On the Standard bidding model, you’ll bid based on the CPM you’re willing to pay. However, the CPM you select isn’t fixed. Meaning that – when you win an impression – you’ll pay based on a “second auction” system. This means you won’t pay your bid. You’ll pay the bid of the bidder right below you on the rankings, instead.

    The “second auction” system also applies when you select “Auto Bid Type”. In this case, Go2mobi’s bid system dynamically distributes bids and fights for traffic on all the campaign’s parameters and combinations, without overpaying for lower value impressions.

    It’s targeting a Win Rate of approximately 40%, which is considered to be a good level to get a feel for the quality of a certain parameter.

    While using this tool, it’s normal for you to see a bid of 1.5 in a placement and – on the next one – a bid of 21. This CPM value varies and depends on the bid required to get a Win Rate of at least close to 40% and on the bid floor (minimum bid) to buy traffic from that specific placement.

    Auto-bidding can be a good way for you to understand the quality of traffic. Once you get a feel for the quality of the individual parameters and combinations, though, you should definitely make use of the bid-overrides and switch to manual bidding.

    After selecting your daily budget, you can also set your budget as “standard” or “paced.” The paced budget is an interesting feature that allows you to target a certain number of Wins or Conversions per day.


    After finishing this first setup, you’ll see a “save” button, that appears multiple times on the “edit campaign” page, meaning you must save each section to save the whole campaign.

    The next step would be selecting the Exchange to buy the traffic. There are 12 options available but – before recommending any of those – we advise you to check the “Inventory” menu to understand what’s the available traffic for the specific GEO you wanna launch.

    After checking the traffic, you can select as many GEOs as you want by adding them to a Whitelist.
    While selecting multiple exchanges, it might happen that your campaign is accepted and rejected on some of those traffic sources. This happens because of the different rules when it comes to the type of offer you’re promoting.

    Plus: by simply leaving the Safety Fallback option switched ON in Mobidea, you can get rejected on some of the exchanges (mostly MoPub and Smaato). They like to know what you’ll be promoting and whether or not there’s another kind of redirection involved in your campaign.

    Make sure you get your campaigns approved by those exchanges. Indeed, we advise you to turn off your Safety Fallback.

    BEWARE! In this case, you must always check the availability status of your promoted offer, as you don’t have any fallback option in case the offer is paused!
    Note that the approval stage can take a while, as you’ll be processed according to your submission time. Approvals only take place between 09:00 and 17:00 PST.


    Carriers – Go2mobi allows you to target everything specifically: Wi-Fi, 3G and 3G + Wi-Fi. When it comes to Carrier targeting, you won’t have a worry in the world!
    Placement Type – option to filter traffic by App & Site, Site or in-App only.
    Placement – where you can whitelist or blacklist a given website.
    Auto Rules – allows you to create conditions and rules that’ll make the campaign self-optimized, based on certain parameters.
    Device Type – easily allows you to target Phone or Tablet traffic.
    Devices – where you can whitelist/blacklist OS, OS version, Device Make and Model.
    Creatives – the place to upload banners and finally select the traffic dimensions you’ll target.

    Hint: be aware that you can also adjust the weight for each uploaded banner, according to your requirements. By default, it’s gonna be 100% per banner.

    Besides these main options, Go2mobi has other features such as Dayparting, GEO location (allows you to target specific areas such as cities and ZIP codes), IP addresses, note box (where you can take notes) and a Rules tab to manage the optimization rules that you set up on the campaign. To finish, the Bid Overrides option allows you to select a different CPM bid for a specific parameter of a campaign..

    Other features:
    Ad Types:
    Mobile display banners, video, rich media, and native
    Cost model: CPM
    Verticals: Mainstream
    Minimum deposit: $100 for credit card payments; $1,000 for bank transfers
    Payment methods: Credit card and wire transfers
    Personal Account manager: none

    Generally speaking, Go2Mobi will definitely require a lot of research and testing but, with the right strategy, you’ll be able to make brass with super smooth class!
