What does this mean in practice for you – the advertiser? Numerous ways to place relevant online messaging in front of your most relevant customers. Please note that Pocketmath PRO is strictly a mobile DSP and doesn’t offer desktop or cross-device functionality. 

Inventory and Reach

Pocketmath PRO offers pretty much everything available on mobile from Static Banners to Rich Media JS and MRAID Ads, Video Ads with VAST, and Native Ads and Rich Media Creative.

As far as campaign creation, Pocketmath PRO lets you select multiple creatives per ad set. When it comes to fraud detection, PocketMath PRO assures in-house solutions monitoring abnormal behavior and viewability feedback.

Their collaboration with Pixelate catches and rejects fraudulent impressions in real-time. On top of that, PocketMath PRO relies on the Integral Ad Science (IAS) to measure ad viewability. 

Targeting, Tracking, and Optimization

Pocketmath PRO enables advertisers to target their audience on both mobile web and mobile applications, letting them use different targeting methods to reach mobile users who may be a competitor’s customers.

Thanks to advanced technology, PocketMath PRO allows its users to reach desired KPI’s both for brand awareness and performance, by providing only highly-relevant customers. It is achieved thanks to the following features: 


The youngest Pocketmath PRO’s feature. Introduced in 2019, AppGraph is PRO’s audience discovery feature. It allows users to narrow down new audiences by providing mobile-app audience insights. This way their clients can target a selected group of certain OS users based on the apps they have on their mobile devices.

On top of that, this feature includes data on competitors’ users, offering advertisers a more direct and adequate way to build audiences and gain market share. Pocketmath Head of Product Nuno Jonet explains:

“Imagine you had access to your competitors’ customers and the extensive data on each customer’s phone? Well, that’s precisely what AppGraph provides for Pocketmath PRO users. By allowing our customers to target audiences based on what apps they have installed, how often they’re opened, and when they were last used, we are enabling our customers with the opportunity to advertise and pitch what makes their app, product or service better to the people most interested.”

Business Wire

Lookalike Targeting

Or building lookalike audiences if you will. Let’s start with explaining what lookalike audiences are. This type of audience includes prospective customers who share a set of similar traits with the customers you already obtained. Similar in terms of age, interests, level of income etc.

Pocketmath PRO lets you use that data to deliver ROI and your campaign’s profitability. 

Granular Data Deep Dive/High Definition Reports

Transparent reporting with CSV reports, returns deep and useful insights on possible bottlenecks that prevent user’s engagement with your ads or the completion of a purchase, thus optimizing the whole campaign flow.

Real-time reporting enables the user to make decisions faster. You can react to a possible ad overspend or take advantage of mobile-focused machine learning technology, allowing you to optimize by making adjustments by app/publisher, time, creative and location based on high-quality insights. 

Multiple Advertiser Support

Allows you to manage multiple advertisers with default event and custom tracking URL endpoints. As far as tracking, Pocketmath PRO accommodates the following:

  • In App: App Install, App Open, Sign Up, Login, Top Up, First Transaction, In-App Purchase.
  • E-Commerce: Subscriptions, Likes, Content View, Sign Up, Login, Add Payment Info, Add to Cart, Checkout, Purchase.
  • Custom: Create events unique to your brand/business to measure your campaigns against it.

Additionally, the platform has partnered with a variety of third-party conversion trackers such as Adjust, AppsFlyer, and Tune to make up for all that may be missing from their own tracking solutions.

Cost and Business Model

Pocketmath PRO offers cost per mille (CPM) bidding plus margin of 20% of the ad spend. The demand-side platform also helps you  avoid runaway spends through budget pacing and pricing optimization through recently developed Bid Price Optimization Algorithm. 

“The algorithm uses machine learning to look at dozens of variables in a user’s historical data for in-app header bidding and first price auctions. From there, it is able to analyze the data to see how each variable has correlated into a user’s ad performance. With the appropriate data in tow, the algorithm finds the perfect combination of variables from previous campaigns in order to best evaluate and submit upcoming bid prices”.
