Mobile Monetization Benchmarks Q3 2019 is out!

Finally, after a long wait, we have it: The Mobile Monetization Benchmarks report is ready!

Seeing that our previous Mobile Monetization Benchmarks reports emphasized the importance of focusing the monetization strategy on first impressions, we felt that this report should drill down and put a spotlight on additional metrics (which it does).

That is why this report also focuses, for the first time, its attention on price floors as well as some of the previous benchmarks we have analyzed in previous reports.

Data resources

The data presented in this report which was collected over the span of 3 months (July – September of 2019) was gathered by SOOMLA and made possible by it’s unique ability to trace-back ad revenue to a single impression alongside it’s ability to identify the advertiser on each impression. Together, these users viewed over 3.5 billion ad impressions displayed in over 470 apps to over 137 million users.

The app sample consists a higher ratio of games compared to the ratio of non-games in the app stores. However, we’ve seen the same patterns regardless of app category. The ad-formats analyzed through the study are: Interstitials, video interstitials and rewarded videos.
