About Us

History

2006

Shaun Rosen and Laurence Seberini from Luckymobile (Pty) Ltd decided to incubate a new business called Mobiclicks. Back then the opportunity was to sell mobile display adverts on a CPM and click basis. Shaun kicked this off on a deal with Omar Hamoui the founder of Admob. Little did we know that we were buying traffic from the future of Google mobile advertising which would be sold to Google for $750M in 2010.

2007

With a few million clicks under its belt Mobiclicks was incorporated and its focus was to service the mobile advertising sector.

2016

Mobiclicks secured the exclusive rights to represent Blis, a world leader in location solutions. 

It was from this point onwards that Mobiclicks focus was on brands and working with agencies and worked on a multi-screen and not a mobile only approach. 

2017

Mobiclicks secured the exclusive rights to represent Silverpush, a world leader in  context detection marketing.

She is the 'First Of Her Name'... in her family, it is a good name, and also can be nicknamed into multiple things.
