Here’s what our partners think of our monetization platform

We focus on sustainable advertising practices to ensure you see results now and in the future

Through monetization of two of our leading web properties, Futbin and HLTV, Venatus has proven to be a key commercial partner year over year. Venatus has delivered highly effective advertising revenue streams while balancing the needs of our users.

The Venatus team were incredible to work with from start to post campaign. They had ensured that the brief was met and helped set up the campaign with ease. Overall, our results exceeded planned KPIs and we are looking forward to continuing to work with Venatus for future campaigns.

The guys at Venatus helped us with a fantastic campaign promoting our Pokémon DLC across key gaming environments for our ever-important younger audience. Great to see such strong engagement.

Venatus were a great partner to work with. They brought specialists along to our client meetings from the outset which allowed us to refine the concept of the game quickly and then work through the technical build in good time ahead of release.

Venatus was a great alignment with our film DC League Of Super-Pets, allowing us to find a hard to reach younger audience in an engaging way.  The bespoke creative build over-delivered in all metrics, and we’re very impressed with the results which helped contribute towards delivering a strong box-office result in our market.

Venatus is one of the few gems out there for publishers who want a real bump to their earnings. Venatus helped me make as much from my website traffic, which has seen my revenue grow 4x compared to revenue with my previous ad platform.

It was a seamless experience working with Venatus from start to finish. From creative to ad-ops, they helped us deliver a brilliant rich media display campaign that performed well over the industries benchmark.

Venatus has completely changed my life, allowing me to make my passion my main job. I've been working with Venatus for more than 1 year now, the results are really good, the team is always available for any question/help, I've no choice than recommending to join them.

Venatus was a perfect alignment for the Venom: Let there be Carnage Home Entertainment release. Their bespoke creative turned our media into a battlefield encouraging users to take part in a comic combat and decide on their favourite anti-hero Venom vs Carnage!

We are delighted to announce the expansion of our relationship with Venatus to drive engagement across some of our fast-growing websites.

I’m happy to extend our partnership with Venatus as we have developed a great relationship over the years. Both of us are on a growth journey and we work hard together to deliver a great advertising experience for the many brands that are looking to reach the growing gaming communities across the world.

This Venatus sponsorship has allowed Coco Pops to engage with kids of today in the digital space, a first for this brand that traditionally only advertised through kids TV.

We really enjoyed working with Venatus throughout this great campaign. We were able to connect to the target audience at scale through Venatus's diverse mobile gaming portfolio and deliver a video campaign that far exceeded the benchmarks and expectations set out. We would love to work with them again.
