Addictive Mobility Enters the Middle East

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/13 -- Addictive Mobility's industry-leading social mobile advertising platform is announcing its entry into the Middle East. Addictive Mobility has begun to introduce regional advertisers to social targeting on mobile through a strategic partnership with Red Blue Blur Ideas (rbbi), a leading digital and performance-based agency in Dubai, UAE.

The Middle East region not only has one of the fastest growing smartphone and tablet markets globally, but has also seen explosive growth in the use of social media. Advertisers in the region are among the early adopters of mobile advertising. According the Booz & Co., mobile advertising in the region is expected to more than triple in value to $400 million by 2014.

"We have strategically chosen Dubai to be our first market outside of North America, as part of our global expansion plan," said Dilshan Kathriarachchi, President and CTO of Addictive Mobility. "Addictive Mobility saw great synergy with both our technology and mission given the high-growth trajectory for both Social and Mobile in the Middle East. Working with an innovative partner like rbbi lets us provide a white-glove service to the region's Mobile advertisers and agencies."

Addictive Mobility works with all of the major rich media platforms and publishers to pair relevancy derived from social targeting with award-winning creative executions that is both engaging and measurable for advertisers.

Harvey Bennett, Director at rbbi Performance had this to say of its newly minted partnership with Addictive Mobility: "rbbi's focus on interpreting user behavior for performance-based advertising solutions in MENA has led us to a new and exciting partnership with one of the most forward-thinking mobile advertising technology partners in the world. It is with great pleasure that we bring Addictive Mobility to MENA and unite the power of social and mobile into one offering."

As part of an extended regional strategy, Addictive Mobility has begun working with regional publishers to localize its EngageFront(TM) toolset to meet demand from Middle Eastern advertisers for social targeting. The plug-and-play architecture of the EngageFront(TM) platform enhances a publisher's mobile offerings by leveraging Addictive Mobility's social targeting and generates a higher average revenue per user. In addition, the technology results in higher click through rates and greater user engagement, especially when paired with rich media ads. Unlike other ad delivery solutions, EngageFront(TM) responds to a user's behavior and interaction with social content and increases its relevance towards the user's social graph.

Addictive Mobility specializes in social advertising on mobile. The company has leveraged its social targeting capabilities to redefine how advertisers and agencies buy and measure ROI of mobile advertising campaigns. Its proprietary technology offers industry leading conversion rates and improved relevancy of advertisements for publishers. The result is added understanding of the mobile audience, which represents a wealth of data and buying power for advertisers. Addictive Mobility uses a social lens to understand social media activity with real-time accuracy. For more information, please visit addictivemobility.com or follow us on Twitter @addictivelabs.
