Mobile advertising is growing rapidly, but the jury is still out on its effectiveness for brands. And targeting consumers with mobile ads is inherently tough, since there aren’t cookies to follow users around the Web on smartphones and tablets like there are on the desktop Web.

The company, which delivers both loyalty programs and mobile ads for companies like The Weather Channel and AOL’s Moviefone, is introducing mCAST (an acronym for “Mobile Custom Audience Segmentation Tool”), which takes SessionM’s first-party registration data and marries it with in-app surveys to create custom audience groups that can be re-targeted with ads, explained Bill Clifford, chief revenue officer at SessionM.
