Business Challenges

Audience Unlock Project Team had to face a lot of challenges during their initial phases of Native Smart development due to the type of feature-set they wanted to include such as customizable and flexible user interface, seamless user experience. Some of the major challenges that were faced are listed below:

Eliminating Ad Blockers

One of the biggest threats that Audience Unlock wanted to avoid was Ad Blocker. The reason behind it was that Ad blockers could mess with their analytics and contribute to the declining user experience.

Reviewing Analytics

It was difficult to gather data that gives insights about website visitors’ behavior as earlier, we used iFrames to incorporate video ads into the publishers’ website. And, due to which the traffic sources were visible only on the publishers’ website.

Ad Themes that get along with the Publisher’s Website

It was a daunting task to customize the Ad themes including, layout- logo, font, and background in a way that they look similar to publishers’ websites in order to maintain uniformity.

An Easy Ad-Integration Model

Audience Unlock had a critical requirement to integrate ads into website content. To make it easy, the client asked for an easy-to-use integration process and the user should be able to accomplish it within a few clicks.


The Solution

Although, a lot of work was accomplished using technologies such as Javascript, and iFrames, the biggest challenge was to deal with the typical properties that come along with these technologies. After extensive research and all the hard work, we gained success and were able to provide solutions that were a perfect fit for our client’s requirements.

Circumventing Abolish Ad-Blockers by being creative

We dropped the idea of using iFrames. Native Smart was custom-built with an architecture based was based on using an advanced tech-stack (Java, AWS, HTML5, REST, Swift 3, Android), hence, we resorted to an exclusively written unique Javascript code that was placed within the ad-integration module. Voila! We avoided the ad-blockers.

No Iframes

We didn’t use iframes for incorporating videos on the publisher’s website – instead, we wrote and embedded used an exclusively-developed JavaScript code within the ad-integrations module to integrate video unit and base code as part of the publishers HTML. Due to this, Ad-blockers were unable to identify the changes that we did.

Javascript used distinctively

Our proficient developers harnessed the power of Javascript to get resolutions to multiple problems. One one hand, it helped us get access to usage and behavior analytics. As we were able to get the Publisher URL.

Custom Plugin

Our business analysts researched and found that the most popular publishing platforms were based on WordPress. Hence, we created a lightweight and easy-to-integrate Plugin for WordPress to fulfill our client’s requirement.

Furthermore, we even integrated Native Smart with Mopub, a monetization solution for mobile app publishers mobile app.
