– Highly visible ad placements and the ability to execute roadblocks

– Rich media, video and native ad formats

– Guaranteed inventory volume

“These types of premium ad formats complement our existing mobile programmatic offer,” said Kaoutar Benazzi, Sales Director of Groupe Cerise. “We can now offer ad hoc integrations to our advertisers on Gentside and Ohmymag Media.”
