Freespee Enters Mobile Advertising Business With Sponsormob

Another day, another ad network relies on the Freespee call monetization platform to Make Phone Calls Count.
The Berlin, Germany based global CPA ad network Sponsormob is our first pure-mobile ad network partner. Mobile affiliate marketing is one of the fastest growing digital advertising spaces. Not all online affiliate programs fit perfectly on the mobile browser, but calls work better than ever on mobile – with Click-to-Call consumers get instant, one-click access to merchant’s call center, whenever and wherever they wish.
Using the Freespee API, mobile ad networks can now add Cost-Per-Action phone calls to their business model – calls have 10-20x higher value compared to CPC, and advertisers enjoy high sales conversion rates, on average 20-50% depending on the vertical and offer, as well as increased average order values.
