🚨Banner Ads are currently a paid private beta feature. If you're interested, please get in touch! 🚨
How Banner Ads work in a Yapp App
We are currently exploring support for adding banner advertising to our mobile experience. This will allow you to present mobile banner ads at the bottom of whatever pages you choose.
You can attach an arbitrary number of ads to any arbitrary number of top-level pages (Top-level pages are pages like your schedule list, but not an individual schedule item)
Ads will be randomly displayed on those pages
Ads will slide away when the user scrolls down and reappear when they reach the top of the page
Ads can be hidden by the user on a page. The ads will reappear when they navigate to another page
How can I set up banner ads for my app?
Once your app is finished being built, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following deliverables:
Your Ad Creatives (see specs below)
The URL that each Ad Creative should direct users to
Which top-level app pages you would like each Ad Creative to appear on. The top-level pages are the ones that appear in the left bar in the app editor. Refer to them by their page name.
File: ad-creative1.png (and send the image with this name)
Pages: Schedule, Attendees, Welcome
Please note: Without all three, we cannot set up your ads! Once we have everything, please give us at least half a day to get your ads set up.
Ad Creative Specs
Ads will follow the IAB spec for mobile banner ads
Ads must be 640px x 100px or 960px x 150px (for retina displays)
Max files size: 50KB
File types: GIF, JPG, PNG
No background transparency
Ads will have an X on the top right of the ad that can hide the ad for the current page view
The x is 14px square
The x has a touch target of 24px
The x is semitransparent (#000000 at 40%)
This is a new beta feature and doesn't yet include a few features that we anticipate may be must-haves for some customers:
There are not yet Editor capabilities for self-service updates to banners and where they appear. For now, banner images and links conforming to spec would be provided via support channels to an integration engineer, who would configure the app for you.
There is also no analytics of any kind yet.
