KissMyAds is a Cologne-based Mobile Performance Marketing Network offering customized technical solutions to start and fine-tune all high performance campaigns on the mobile web. Based on state-of-the-art web technology, KissMyAds offers Advertisers, Publishers and App developers an easy, risk-free platform to monetize their mobile web traffic and / or to get in touch with their desired audience.
Back in 2011 Florian Lehwald, based on years of experience in digital business, had the idea to create a Performance Marketing Network solely focusing on the next big thing – mobile. Together with Venista Ventures, he founded a startup, initially in London. The provocatively innovative name came up during a brainstorming session with the investors – and it has been a symbol of the company’s fresh approach to successful business ever since.
Within the first year, KissMyAds already turned profitable and grew internationally, leading to a re-establishment of the company in Cologne, Germany, closer to its investor. Since 2011 KissMyAds continuously has doubled its Publisher base, increased the total number of profitable Publishers by more than 400 per cent annually and has grown from a small operation to a profitable startup with aggressive expansion and staffing plans. Besides of that, 2013 and 2014 will be characterized by the launch of several new technologies such as the KissMyAds Traffic Switch or the Smart App Layer. Out of its current large loft office in Cologne, KissMyAds is always focusing on improving its services and products in order to keep pace with the dynamic mobile industry.
