    About Us

    Founded in January 2014, is the world’s largest community of growth marketing professionals and brands, comprised of more than 20,000 acquisition and retention-oriented professionals.

    Our online communities and in-person events include founders, CEOs, marketing executives, developers and product managers representing a broad range of companies — from early-stage startups to global brands.

    The communities are free to join, and are a great way to learn from and network with innovators and leaders working for the top mobile brands today. Our communities are a safe space for you to share tips, strategies and more, and as such, people we consider vendors (marketing platforms, marketing agencies, tool providers and other solutions pitched toward the marketing community) are not allowed.

      Long Read: IDFA0, the Time Is Now

      Superb research/writing from @thomasbcn.

Only a few clients that I work on were impacted and they are already in the coupon/refund process.ADEXCHANGER.COM

      YouTube Audio Ads Are Now Available in Open Beta

      "And although audio ads are clickable – the creative will show a still display ad while the audio plays – YouTube is primarily focused on awareness and consideration as the main advertiser KPIs, at least for now." So mostly ignorable for performance for now.ADEXCHANGER.COM
