Celtra Debuts Ad Format in Exclusive Partnership with Hearst

By Tim Maytom


Display advertising optimisation platform Celtra has debuted a new high-impact ad format as part of its three-month exclusive partnership with Hearst Magazines UK, which will see the format appear across the publishers 19 magazine brands and seven pure play digital brands.

The ad format, Reactive Pull, invites the user to pull the screen down to reveal the ad content with a reactive scale and cross-fade effect, and can be dismissed after viewing with a simply swipe gesture.

It was piloted in Cosmopolitan and Red with a campaign for Pandora jewellery, and demonstrated a pull expansion rate of 1.8 per cent (150 per cent higher than Celtra’s existing expandable banner format) and a 69 per cent video consumption rate.

“The goal of our brand advertising campaign was to showcase our product in the best way in the run-up to Mother’s Day,” said Caitlin Steele, online marketing manager for Pandora. “Hearst Magazines UK presented us with a new and innovative ad format that suited the needs of our campaign perfectly.
