Greystripe Logo

Greystripe is an ad network specializing in mobile advertisements and is one of over a hundred such programs we review on experienced-people.co.uk. Greystripe is a division of online marketing giant ValueClick, Inc.

Greystripe serves ads aimed exclusively for mobile traffic. The available creatives include 300×250 smartphone-friendly units, full-screen video ads, applications, banners and more. Generally, the network supports most mobile-friendly ad formats.

All of Greystripe's ads work with CPM commissions. The network's inventory is enormous, being powered by ValueClick, and includes offers from big names such as Axe, Burger King, Buick Paramount and many more. The CPM rates are decent and the fill rate is almost always 100%. Additionally, Greystripe allows app developers to seamlessly place ads inside their applications.

The network's support is rock-solid and their reporting and control tools are high-tech; absolutely no complaints there. Their staff is competent enough to be able to assist app developers in implementing the network's ads in their own applications.

Since Greystripe's founding, publishers from around the web seem to have had mostly positive experiences with the network's mobile ads and we understand why. The network does one thing and does it well. If you are looking to monetize your web traffic with decent CPM ads then Greystripe will offer you a virtually limitless array of mobile-friendly advertisements that are suitable for your website.
