Our story

Early on at Gecko, we recognized a significant difference between the neuroscience of native ads as opposed to traditional display ads. We found that the reader’s brain responds starkly better to native ads. The insight behind this was that reading the headline of a native ad is a profoundly mental process. It creates an affinity to the content consumed, and that is where we got our head start.

As a high-tech company, we hone an innovative culture committed to exploring new ideas that give our clients the competitive edge they deserve. We are committed to suitable delivery in the way users consume content; we aim to keep quality native advertising alive to benefit both advertisers and publishers through our world- class technology continuously evolving to uphold the highest in advertising standards.

We optimize the user experience such that relevance translates to brand penetration and tremendous respect for publishers and their editorial content. We hope to work in a way that adds value to products, brands, and publications.
