Network Update: MANTIS® Now Reaches More Than 6 Million Unique Monthly Readers

by Matthew Price on April 28, 2015

As you may or may not know, it has only been 10 months since the launch of MANTIS®. Time has flown by. In this short period of time, the MANTIS ad network has achieved a number of victories (both big and small) that we feel are noteworthy. So without further ado… let’s take a few seconds to dive into some network statistics to see why we think MANTIS is on track for a stellar first birthday!

  • MANTIS has had a consistent 25% month-to-month growth rate since its inception 10 months ago (in regards to reach).

  • MANTIS now reaches 6 million monthly readers that advertisers can segment (by device, keyword, demographics, geolocation, and more).

  • MANTIS ads span across 110+ publishing partners, creating the largest network of cannabis-friendly websites and premium ad inventory in the world.

  • MANTIS serves more than 50 million ad impressions each month through display banner ads and strategic content marketing initiatives. *video coming soon

  • MANTIS now offers high-priority rotation to advertisers on a CPM (cost per 1000 views) basis, ensuring its publishing partners the highest payouts in the industry. *pricing depends on targeting requirements

As one may expect from a cannabis-friendly ad network, MANTIS experienced a large increase in traffic on 4/20 (shown in the chart below). International coverage of the “holiday” helped fuel the growth, pushing additional users to search and share cannabis-related content that they couldn’t help but see in their news/social feeds.

As such, advertisers may find it beneficial to plan ahead in 2016 by creating strategic marketing campaigns that are designed to take advantage of the increased exposure that exists over this 24 hour timeframe.


Inevitably, a lot of our recent success stems from receiving help from everyone in the network. We simply couldn’t have grown as quickly as we have without each and every one of you, so thank you for your continued loyalty. It means the world to us.
