a New Mobile Advertising Performance Platform
Unique proprietary technology harnesses verified first-party data to serve highly relevant mobile advertising that drives significantly increased conversions and value for marketers
Company also enhances portfolio of Chrysalis-powered mobile sites, offering more opportunities for users to engage and win with PCH on their mobile devices
Port Washington, N.Y. – November 4, 2013 – Publishers Clearing House Digital (PCH Digital), the web destination for the widely known leader in multi-channel direct marketing, today announced the launch of Chrysalis, a new mobile advertising optimization engine that offers fresh opportunities for more precise targeting and delivers a more compelling value to direct advertisers. Chrysalis evolves the performance of mobile advertising by processing vast amounts of PCH verified first-party data to deliver highly relevant mobile advertising to users across all PCH mobile web and app environments. The technology, developed in conjunction with Liquid Wireless, a Publishers Clearing House company, serves many types of mobile ads including app installs, high quality lead generation offers, display and video ads, and integrated offer walls.
“With Chrysalis, PCH Digital is able to harness a successful combination of exclusive user-verified data, advanced mobile ad products, and a highly engaged audience, which creates a strong basis for unique multi-platform targeting,” said Josh Glantz, Vice President and General Manager of PCH Online. “The introduction of Chrysalis has tripled the performance of our mobile advertising units and is delivering strong early results for PCH clients and partners.”
Using proprietary algorithms to obtain and analyze user data, Chrysalis determines the highest value advertising unit to present to a consumer based upon that individual’s digital experiences and actions as well as the known user data already acquired through PCH.com. Chrysalis has the ability to securely identify users through data shared across the PCH Digital platform and can gather additional user information via interactive surveys, enhancing its core ability to understand consumers across all PCH mobile properties and serve more targeted ads.
Chrysalis technology will be integrated into existing and new PCH mobile properties and applications planned for release over the next few months. These include:
PCH.com Mobile—PCH.com will be launching a more robust mobile site with additional winning opportunities including sweepstakes, instant win games, and scratchcards. Customers will be able to enter and play multiple times per day and unlock PCH.com’s exclusive daily $10,000 Instant Win Game. The mobile site will offer users the opportunity to collect PCH tokens and will include a new mobile redemption center where users can redeem their tokens for even more winning opportunities. More than 32 billion tokens have been earned in the PCH Digital token economy. The 2.5 million users with token balances redeem approximately 2 billion tokens on a monthly basis.
PCHLotto—The PCHLotto flagship digital experience offers players chances to win daily cash prizes as large as $25,000, and now there are even more ways to win. With the new PCH Mobile Lotto, PCHLotto aficionados can now play their favorite lotto card games on any device, whenever and wherever they connect to the Internet. And the new Twilight Lotto game is an exciting new experience, presenting the opportunity for additional chances to win every day after 5 p.m. Eastern time.
