The Challenge

PocketFM was experiencing low fill rates and eCPMs, followed by very little revenue.
After multiple attempts to scale their ad revenue further, PocketFM consulted our team to create an efficient monetization plan for the company and help them scale their revenues further.

The Solution

Our optimization and ad operations experts devised a detailed plan for the company to set an effective strategy for Ad Monetization to help the team scale their revenue and operational efficiency for daily data tracking.
Our team considered Ad Request eCPM a benchmark metric to track the success of our optimization strategy. Any small increment in the Ad Request eCPM is an achievement in itself.
The Formula for Ad Request eCPM is:
Ad Request eCPM = (Total Ad Revenue / Total Ad Requests) * 1000
It essentially discounts any daily variation in traffic and focuses on the revenue per ad request being generated daily.
