Most trusted VPN
service in the world!
With a monthly active user base of over 25 million and 350 million installs to date, AnchorFree’s Hotspot Shield VPN is the largest free VPN service in the world. It has an unparalleled ability to protect users’ IP from spammers, snoopers, and hackers, provide Wi-Fi security, and detect and protect against malware. 

CHALLENGE

Increase revenue from video longform placements

In order to keep Hotspot Shield free, AnchorFree is constantly looking for ways to increase their customers’ engagement levels and average revenue per user (ARPU). Regardless of premium placement on the AnchorFree launch page, the video ads were producing less than desired click-to-start and completion rates. Before KRAKEN, AnchorFree tested with various forms of static default thumbnails attached to the video promos. 

SOLUTION

Responsive visuals at programmatic scale
KRAKEN uses machine learning technology to optimize “Lead Visuals” in a programmatic structure, enabling the highest video engagement possible. KRAKEN became the preferred platform to maximize video revenue yield from their current advertiser base.

RESULT

40% revenue gain for the Birdman campaignVideo Machine Learning Kraken Birdman Graph
KRAKEN boosted click to play rates for the Birman trailer video campaign by a staggering 3,000%. This increase in click to play rates directly resulted in a 40% gain in revenue. After realizing such profound revenue gains, AnchorFree does not run high value video campaigns without KRAKEN.
