Interactive Add-on: Gesture

Gesture is an interactive add-on product that helps you display your ads in a new way and create a deeper connection with your customers by asking them to physically interact with your ads. When you create a campaign for Reach & Frequency, or Auction Reach, or the Video View sub-objective "6 seconds video view" you can add a Gesture to your ads.

About Gesture

Gesture invites users to tap or swipe on an ad in order to unveil rewards or more information. Strong invitation for users to interact, since they get a payoff by physically engaging with the ad. Gesture is another native addition to an ecosystem of products designed to keep users engaged.

If they do not perform the gesture, the ad will continue to play, and the reward card will not appear. The Gesture reward card supports both static images and .gif animations.
