Expandable BenchmarksWhat consumers are interacting with on Mobile currently NB. Big Mobile Expandable banner averages i.e. All engagements are post the first click to expand.
Facilitating ads “Can ads create sufficient revenue?” - Yes, but it’s complicated. Platform, genre and reasons to return play significant roles in an overall success story. Also, bear in mind that a revenue driven by advertising means a delay on the return. Ads take time to generate significant income.
Facilitating ads “How much $$$ ?” - Shrouded in intense mystery :) Compare your product to similar ones that have public post-mortems or success based case studies. Most ad networks pay per impression, with a bonus for clicks. Type of ads play a part as well.
Facilitating ads “How should I set it up?” - Familiarize yourself with the networks AdMob mediation is a very powerful tool to get the best possible ad serving platform. Subject to post-launch analysis and optimization for best possible outcome.
Creating ads “Do mobile ads work?” - Yes, and very well too. Localized advertising brings back focus on context, an area that’s greatly underestimated. The unique link between ‘click’ and download mean mobile ads have a greater measure of cost- per-action.
Creating ads “Business as usual?” - Not quite. Localization, ads disguised as games, coupons and information relevant to context work well. The same old banner ethos forced on a mobile screen doesn’t.
Creating ads “Am I getting a good ROI?” - One of the best in the game. Currently, the average cost for a smartphone ad is significantly lower than its web counterpart (by a factor of almost 4!) (wall street journal) Several significant studies have noted that smartphone users tend to notice ads a lot more than in other media.
