Mobvious Expands Operations to the U.S. with a Strong Focus in the Bicultural Hispanic Market

MIAMI, July 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mobvious, the European firm specializing in mobile marketing solutions, today announced its U.S. launch with the support of HiMedia Group and Latam Digital Ventures. Mobvious will provide innovative formats, as well as an exclusive network of high-quality publishers, to develop and implement mobile campaigns for the bicultural millennial Hispanic market. With the most advanced technology and based on rich data, Mobvious is able to identify with high precision second and third generation U.S. Hispanics.

Located in Miami, Mobvious’ new office will be co-founded and led by Isabel Rafferty, who has a solid career in the mobile marketing industry and formerly worked with a number of Fortune 500 companies. Isabel previously headed a mobile advertising company and was responsible for the launch of offices in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.

“The experience, vision and relationships Isabel has built during her career are fundamental to lead Mobvious and make it a competitive player in the United States market,” stated Cyril Zimmermann, CEO of HiMedia.

The Hispanic bicultural millennial population in the United States is an attractive market for brands, because of its size and increasing purchase power, estimated at about $1.5 trillion (US), in addition to their interest in receiving mobile advertising.

Hispanics are noted as heavy mobile users. According to Nielsen Mobile Insights, bilingual Hispanics invest more than 762 minutes per month using their mobile devices and Hispanics 658, in contrast to the average population, who spends 510 minutes per month.

Mobvious provides an integral solution that maximizes the possibilities offered by mobile devices:

  • Innovative mobile formats consisting of video, audio, and display; social, geolocalization and rich media functions; as well as native and contextual advertising.
  • Rich data that helps to identify subsegments in both English and Spanish.
  • Reach that covers 80% of the Hispanic population that owns a mobile device.
  • A platform to analyze data from each interaction to optimize the campaign’s effectiveness in real time.
  • An exclusive base to connect with celebrities and influencers who are willing to promote brands on social media.

“Mobvious is an international company that has outperformed in other international markets because of its innovative mobile products as well as their relationships with important publishers. Together, this will ensure excellent results for our clients,” said Rafferty.

“We are delighted to add Mobvious to the Latam Digital Ventures family,” said Giuliano Stiglitz, co-founder and CEO of Latam Digital Ventures. “With Isabel’s depth of experience and our powerful mobile solutions, we are confident that Mobvious will be successful as it enters the U.S. market.”

Mobvious is the third company that has received financial support from Latam Digital Ventures, a holding company that is celebrating its first anniversary of working with two previously funded companies – Primia.Digital and Fullscreen.
