🪄 Using our highly converting Ad Formats – is the best way to bewitch your audience this Halloween. We suggest…
- Pop-Under: Pop-under ads offer huge potential to increase awareness. These ads are less intrusive to your target audience and a great way to optimize engagement on desktop and mobile.
- Interstitial: Interstitial ads cure banner blindness and deliver high conversion rates. They are an extremely versatile and cost-effective ad format that provides maximum exposure in exchange for minimal investment.
🧛♂️ Get the right eyes on your campaign and find the audience that matters most. Try out User Interest Targeting. It’s important to know that targeted ads are almost twice as effective as non-targeted ones.
🎃 Automate your Ads! Eliminate the guesswork and track your returns at the click of a button. Optimize with CPA Target Bidding for main actions like registrations & installations, and CPM for high-value conversions!
🧙♀️ Geo-target like a pro and aim for the locales that will yield the best possible results. Here’s where the Adcash team suggests shooting your bolts:
🪔 It’s not geo-targeting that’s important! In order to maximize your budget, you also need to ensure that your ads are being served to the interest-based audiences that are most likely to convert:

🪦 Last but certainly not least is something that can make your campaign make or break — your creatives! Regular ad creative and landers won’t quite cut it, so be sure to keep things spooky.
