These updates have cemented Adludio as the one-stop shop for mobile advertising, delivering everything from creative production, to unique campaign insights, as well as media buying and targeting.

From Adludio’s humble beginnings, the capabilities of its platform today are a testament to how far the business has come. Its growth and success so far has been down to its keen focus on pushing the technology forward, particularly growing its AI presence at each step of the way. Rather than just adding personnel toward business expansion, Adludio instead empowered its design team with data-based recommendation and technological solutions.
The versatility of which has made achieving scale and guaranteed brand engagement much easier, as well as adjusting its proposition in alignment with market changes and challenges. Moving forward, Adludio wants to make mobile advertising more engaging and results-oriented while being less intrusive, supporting marketers with performance guaranteed, data-backed creatives.
Adludio has maintained its start-up culture as it has grown, and every employee is onboard with the vision and has the opportunity to pitch in with their ideas. Although it has a large remote workforce, the senior team has worked hard to fully integrate everyone, and create an ethos of greater communication and collaboration, so the business does not feel siloed into different teams, rather all employees are working towards the same goals.
