We are very excited to release the latest update to Chartboost Network publishing campaigns!?With the new publishing campaign, we?ve restructured campaigns to serve the top performing ad units for specific publisher placements.

Starting today, publishing campaigns are now simplified into two 'Placement Type' categories:?interstitial?and?rewarded.?Campaigns now reflect publisher placements instead of ad creative types.

We?re already seeing positive results from our initial tests:?? ??59.7% eCPM increase?? ??71.6% install rateNote: interstitial campaigns will only run if you include showInterstitial in your code, and rewarded campaigns will only run if you include showRewarded in your code.

What?s Changed?

Unified Placement: Interstitial vs. Rewarded Campaigns

Previously your publishing campaigns were separated into static, interstitial video, and rewarded video. Now when you create a new publishing campaign, you?ll notice ?Ad Type? has been replaced with ?Placement Type?. ?Within ?Placement Type??choose whether you want to run an interstitial campaign or a rewarded campaign.

  • Interstitial campaigns can deliver a mix of static images, GIF, video, or playable ads.
  • Rewarded campaigns serve video or playable creative types.

Instead of trying to decide which creative type to show in your game, you simply choose the location. Chartboost will then serve the most optimized ad unit for that placement.
