Interscroller ads despite being quite new allow publishers to insert interactive ads without degrading the user experience & helping with search engine rankings.
In this article, we discuss what interscroller ads are and if it is the best replacement for interstitial ads.
Interscroller ads are native-style, mobile-friendly ads and appear only as the reader scrolls through the content, so they stay out of the way – but allow you to communicate with users at a time when they’re most likely to be receptive to your message. These interstitial ad alternatives align well with IAB Ads requirements.
Interscroller ads can be more effective than other types of online advertising formats due to their interactivity. As you scroll down the page, you’ll see this ad gradually revealed below the content. Once 3/4th of the ad has been revealed, the rest snaps out into a full-screen view.
Interscroller ads offer a better user experience than interstitial ads because they don’t require users to take an action to dismiss the ad. Instead, they are simply scrolled through as part of the main body of content. In short, it’s a way to deliver an ad in a way that doesn’t get in the way of the user consuming content.
Just like interstitial ads, you can place interscroller ads through ad networks or contact us to set it up for you.
Various types of interscroller ads are available, including GIF, PNG, JPG, and HTML5. Also, they can run on multi-format videos like MOV, FLY, MPEG4, AVI, and MP4. By uploading your ad in the form of a template to your campaign’s settings (new or existing) you can easily activate the interscroller format.
As with desktop and mobile ads, interscroller ads excel here as their easy-to-use templates eliminate the need for HTML or coding expertise.
Publishers and advertisers benefit greatly from interscroller advertising in the following ways:
Interscroller ads aren’t obtrusive but are instead blended in to look like they’re an extension of the content. Videos or graphics often appear first and then scroll into view, so that they look like part of the page rather than an ad. This makes them a popular choice for those who don’t want ads to dominate their site—even the most ardent users of ad blockers won’t block interscrollers because they blend seamlessly with the rest of their content. And unlike pop-up ads, there is no need to annoy readers with a pop-over message to get them to click on it—interscroller ads do all the work for you.
This seamless transition from the publisher’s content to the ads is not only more visually appealing; it also makes your site easier to navigate for your users.
Inter-scroller ads offer publishers a larger opportunity to engage their users and create a more pleasant-looking experience, all while potentially increasing click-through rates and reducing bounce rates. They are designed to capture and hold the attention of users by presenting them with multiple elements, often incorporating sound or video. They have the visual appeal of interstitial ads with less obtrusion.
One reason why Interscroller ads are so effective is that they generate up to 200% increased user engagement over your usual ads. The unit is unique because it is not displayed as an ad until the user has scrolled 85% of the way to the bottom of any web page on which it is placed. The overall experience feels less intrusive and more like a natural part of reading than your standard ad.
The following steps mentioned works well for most mobile ad networks with small tweaks:
To ensure your interscroller format provides a divine ad experience on mobile devices, consider the following:
For publishers looking for another revenue stream, interscroller ads are a great way to make money without sacrificing your users’ experience. They can bring in more money than traditional banner ads because they have higher engagement rates: people like that they don’t feel like intrusions on their time or place, so they tend to spend more time interacting with them and clicking on them than they do other types of ads.
