MUMBAI: India’s over the top (OTT) platform Eros Now, part of Eros International, has tied up with InMobi to enable advertisers to directly monetise on Eros Now’s video platform, which boasts an audience of over a 100 million registered users. This exclusive partnership will give brands and advertisers in India a unique opportunity to experience an end-to-end playbook that spans innovative video and ad formats, dynamic in-content placement of high-quality movies, and music videos and originals across devices.

In addition, Eros Now will also adopt InMobi’s disruptive mobile-first advertising platform to market content through the in-app video universe across India.  

Commenting on this association, Eros Digital CEO Rishika Lulla Singh said, “With the advertising landscape transforming into immersive engagement, brands can now leverage deep story-telling to collaborate with the audience. The digital penetration is seeing an incremental growth across cities in India and the consumer is increasingly spending much more time on their mobile devices than they did a few years ago, making it one of the most sought-after platforms for advertising. We are happy to join hands with one of the leading advertising platforms in India and aim to continue providing a seamless experience to all our subscribers.”

InMobi founder and CEO Naveen Tewari said, “Our association with Eros Now marks an industry first partnership in the OTT space which is the next big thing after the app economy. It will be a trendsetter in many ways. Our distinction lies in our core business which centres around the primary screen - mobile; making this an organic progression for us, and that’s where our decade-long expertise also comes at play. Our full-stack mobile OTT solutions hinged on in-app and our video-first platform will not only allow for deep brand integrations but will improve the overall efficacy of content monetisation, driven through Eros Now’s original video content.”

Eros Now hopes to open up avenues for both traditional and non-traditional brands to engage with their target audience. Mobile in-app advertising is a highly personalised segment, and by using InMobi’s technology and innovation, Eros Now will give advertisers access to creative optimisation, re-targeting and data-driven decision-making capability to run ads and to be the market leader.
