Growmobile Debuts Instagram Advertising, Expanding Opportunity for Marketers to Reach Engaged Mobile Consumers

TEL AVIV, Israel & PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Growmobile, Perion's social and mobile marketing division, announced today the support of Instagram advertising through its mobile user acquisition platform.

Growmobile was one of the first Facebook Marketing Partners to receive early access to the new Instagram Ads API, enabling advertisers to run ad campaigns on one of the fastest-growing mobile traffic sources in the industry.

"The introduction of Instagram advertising enhances our social media advertising capabilities and our overall mobile advertising capabilities, extending our ability to provide unrivaled mobile advertising solutions for our clients," said Shai Gottesdiener, General Manager of Growmobile. "As one of the first Facebook Marketing Partners to receive access to the Instagram Ads API, we have a unique opportunity to strengthen our position as a mobile advertising industry leader."

Growmobile's integration with the Instagram Ads API offers marketers the opportunity to extend their advertising reach to Instagram's community of more than 300 million users. According to a recent eMarketer report, Instagram mobile ad revenues are expected to reach $2.81 billion in 2017, highlighting the business potential for Growmobile from this new extended offering.

The new Instagram advertising capability strengthens Growmobile's user acquisition platform by enlarging its traffic source inventory for customers.
