  • Tiny Screen, Huge Results. Maximizing Mobile Advertising Performance HTML5 iPad ads at your fingertips Tablets are an opportunity to take engagement to a new level, by adding touch to the visual stimuli. In the case of the iPad, advertisers need to leverage the power of HTML5 instead of Flash to create powerful visual ads. However, as shown by the Avatar DVD Release campaign, HTML5 ads on the iPad can be as sophisticated as Flash ads. In this innovative ad, Fox Home Entertainment allowed users to preview exclusive movie scenes and behind-the-scenes footage in a way that corresponds to the film’s augmented-reality-based plot. Using fingertips, users can drag and resize clips on top of the web page’s content, taking advantage of the full screen of the iPad to convey the advertising message. The “immersive trailer” ads were produced in dual HTML5 formats for the iPad and Flash ads were created for Flash-enabled sites. To view the full ad, click here: 6

  • Tiny Screen, Huge Results. Maximizing Mobile Advertising Performance You can beat the CTR, but can you beat the ROI? While the evidence shown here clearly demonstrates the higher effectiveness of mobile in CTR and branding performance, mobile advertising still carries higher costs, specifically when compared to Standard. Nevertheless, even when considering the incremental cost, mobile still delivers a higher return on investment (ROI). An analysis of a recent campaign served by MediaMind of a large global financial services firm that used a combination of Standard Banners, Rich Media and Mobile Banners shows that Mobile Banners achieved the lowest cost per click. Mobile ads commanded a higher CTR, as compared to their Rich Media and Standard counterparts, which was large enough to offset the higher cost of mobile media. In this campaign, mobile proved to be the most financially rewarding format in the media mix. 9

  • Tiny Screen, Huge Results. Maximizing Mobile Advertising PerformanceThe Evening BrowseMobile browsing habits are a whole different ball game when compared to traditional browsing. A large proportion of the browser basedbanners are viewed between 9am and 5pm, when people are at the office. An analysis of impressions served by hour shows that themost popular hours for mobile browsing tend to be early evening, between 7pm to 9pm, with elevated activity throughout the evening.

  • Conclusion Mobile is moving from the fringe to the mainstream, helped by the tailwind of higher performance and better ROI. Today, mobile ads reach one of every three consumers, and mobile spending is expected to double by 2014. As in the early days of browser based display, the innovation of mobile advertising elicits higher response from users. Mobile achieves the highest performance out of display ad formats for CTR, leaving Standard Banners in the dust. Mobile also outperforms browser based banners in branding performance. Evidence shows that browsing experience does affect users’ response to online mobile advertising. Apple’s iPhone achieves the highest CTR performance, while BlackBerry the lowest. The CTR performance of Apple’s iOS is nearly double that of Android based phones. Evenings tend to be most active, when it comes to online browsing and ad exposures. This is also the time when users tend to be most responsive to mobile display ads, commanding the highest CTR. With ever-expanding reach, higher performance, and evidence of better ROI than traditional display, mobile advertising can complement any display campaign. Don’t let the tiny size fool you; mobile can yield huge results. retweet this 15
