Pangle Placement

Why Pangle?

Pangle enables advertisers to effectively reach broad audiences by running ads in placements on 3rd party apps while benefiting from app monetization solutions for publishers (i.e. app developers). In a nutshell, Pangle provides immersive ad formats that make for a better ad experience for users, with the purpose of driving impactful results for businesses. 


Ad Formats

Pangle supports a variety of engaging ad formats that can help ads better blend in with native content of the media on which ads are shown. Each ad format has its own unique benefits when leveraged across different scenarios. The available ad formats include: 

  • Rewarded Video Ads: full-screen video ads with in-app rewards for users who watch the video for the entire duration.

  • Interstitial Ads: ads displayed during certain transitions within the flow of the app, such as post-level clearance or during pauses between game levels.

  • Native Ads: a type of ad that matches the style of the original content that's found on the app, blending in to provide a consistent and seamless viewing experience to end users.

  • Banner Ads: ads displayed in the form of rectangular banners across the app.

  • App Open Ads: a type of ad that's displayed when the app is opened and the user begins a session.

  • Icon Ads: a type of ad that only displays the app icon and app name.

Pangle also provides interactive customization services such as Endcard and Playable Ads, designed to help you boost your advertising performance. For details, please see below. 


Ad Formats Setup

Content Source

Advertisements on Pangle are mainly created from your existing campaign assets. You can upload image files or video footage, and use these materials together with text and other features. An asset provided in a campaign can be combined with the public info about your app from the app store, such as the logo or ratings, and will be based on the provided link. In order for your creative assets to be adaptable across various ad formats, Pangle may need to fill in any empty space within the placement with a colored background or a Gaussian blur effect.


When you upload a video asset, you will be invited to select the video thumbnail that will serve as the "cover" of your video. If you do not select a thumbnail, Pangle will use the first frame of your video as the thumbnail by default. The video thumbnail will then be used as your main static image asset for ad formats that only support image ads.

Ad interactive Customizations

Pangle offers interactive customization solutions to enhance the ad experience for end users through deeper immersion - ultimately increasing their engagement with the ads. These customized solutions are tried and tested and have been proven to help maximize ad effectiveness for Pangle's advertisers. 


Pangle will automatically leverage Endcard and Animation Effects and apply them to your ads, based on the end user's preference.  Playable ads will be applied if you select this as part of your campaign setup. When you choose Pangle to distribute your ads, interactive customization is included for free as part of the Pangle services. The service provided includes, but is not limited to, attaching a personalized endcard or playable ads to original ad materials, displaying animation effects, displaying SKOverlay, and more. 

  • Endcard: An automatically generated card with key info from your assets. This is an automated ad extension that is attached to the end of your video/image ad. 

  • Animation Effects: Special visual effects that are added onto text, images, slides, and other formats.

  • Playable Ads: An immersive experience

    for end users that equips them with a preview demo of what it's like to interact with the app before actually downloading it. 


Endcard

Endcard is an automatically-generated graphic that is attached to the end of your video/image ads with specific information about your products or services, which encourages end users to take action and make the next move. Endcard serves as an additional opportunity to convey key information to your audiences at the right time - when they finish watching your video/image - which proves to be highly effective. Endcard solidifies the end users' impression of the product, pique their interest, and can stimulate their motivation to take action.


Endcard is currently available for Rewarded Video Ads and Interstitial Ads. The elements displayed in an Endcard include images and text, including screenshots from the app store, video thumbnails, creative images, app icons, app names, app categories, app ratings, app descriptions, CTA buttons, etc. Different Endcard templates may contain different elements. Dynamic effects are also a possibility, such as sliding images, guiding gestures, and button animations to guide interested users to the next step. For more details, please see below for reference.
