Leadbolt, a global discovery and monetization platform for mobile app developers and marketers, today officially unveiled its Next Generation Mobile Ad platform. Re-engineered from the ground up, this Next-gen platform streamlines the enhanced tools and features offered within the Leadbolt product set. By leveraging an extensive revamp of the developer-focused app monetization portal and including re-designed and extended ‘Leadbolt+’ capabilities, the Next generation platform will provide a strong basis for growth and profitability to Leadbolt’s network of app developer partners.
“Better design delivers better outcomes to our mobile app developer clients,” said Dale Carr, founder and CEO of Leadbolt. “With this in mind, we re-considered every aspect of the mobile advertising process looking for ways to deliver a future-proof platform whilst making it even easier for our app developers to achieve ROI quickly and efficiently. By making the platform more intuitive, easier to use, and introducing even more benefits, our developer clients are truly set up for success in the free mobile app economy.”
The platform changes have been through a comprehensive beta program this year prior to today’s launch. To start utilizing the improved technologies, app developers can sign up at www.leadbolt.com/developers-signup/.
