Mobile Advertising Mar 10

  2. 2. BIG MOVEMENTS OVER THE LAST FEW MONTHS… $750 Million – AdMob $265 Million – Quattro -AdMob Estimated Revenues in 09 - $70M -Quattro Estimated Revenues in 09 - $30M • Both Google and Apple showed strong interest in “in-Application” advertising where ads are running within a connected application using the standard MMA size banner format. Google’s Android team needed to find a way to attract developers to their ecosystem and Apple’s iSlate tablet team are rumored to have really pressed for the Quattro acquisition also because of the need to get developers on board • Other OEMs like Nokia, BlackBerry, Sony Ericsson are contemplating a move in mobile advertising as it has become a recognized and viable business model for distributing content and applications over the mobile medium. • Some operators jumped into the game early. Vodafone and Telefonica invested in Amobee and are deploying its platform in 38 countries, Orange bought mobile ad-network and agency Unanimis. The GSMA has made mobile advertising one of its key areas for development starting with measurement but moving towards aggregation.
  3. 3. FROM REACH & FREQUENCY TO MAKING EACH “LOCAL” IMPRESSION COUNT The advertising ecosystem has been focused on getting big brands with big budgets to spend on expensive media: for instance Television The focus has been on getting the highest reach and frequency New Media – Yahoo!, AOL, Google, Facebook and now Mobile is shifting the focus from counting the people you can reach to reaching the people that count… These are people who can act on an impression. Google has also broken the “time dimension” of advertising by placing an ad at the moment in time a user expresses an interest in something. They have also figured out a way to monetize a users “intention” as opposed to monetize a users “attention”. It is time that a new player figures out how to monetize and maximize the “space” dimension of advertising
  4. 4. MARKET SIZING – AS MANY FORECASTS AS THERE ARE METHODS OF MEASURING AND DEFINING MOBILE ADVERTISING 1. Berg Insight estimates that the total value of global mobile advertising market was $1.014 B in 2008. 2. Ovum USA: $1.3bn in 2010 Accounts for text delivery advertising only 3. Yankee Group USA: $2B in 2010 Mobile advertisement only 4. Jupiter Research USA: $2.1bn in 2011 5. eMarketer USA: $4.7bn by 2011 WW: $11.3bn by 2011Mobile advertisement only 6. Shosteck Group WW: grow to $9.6bn by 2010 Mobile advertisement only 7. Informa Telecoms and Media WW: $11.5bn by 2011 Mobile advertisement only 8. Strategy Analytics USA: 17% of total online ad spending by 2010 9. ABI Research WW: $19bn by 2011 Mobile marketing and advertising combined Mobile Advertising is a very different market to market with countries like Indonesia and South Africa showing strong growth in WAP banners and places like India and Eastern Europe still focused on text messaging. The US and now UK are more and more focused on in-App and rich media advertising due to the exploding Smartphone market.
  5. 5. GLOBAL MOBILE ADVERTISING SPENDING The average size of campaigns is rising from $30,000-50,000 two years ago to $100,000-$150,000 in mid-2009 with many exceeding $1 million solely focused on mobile. Source: Chetan Sharma Consulting
  6. 6. BLIND AD NETWORKS Usually the largest in terms of publishers, advertisers and impressions. Serve a high volume of advertising to an extensive base of mostly independent mobile publishers (mobile sites and applications) Usually, advertisers can not choose specific mobile sites Performance advertising, CPC in particular, is the norm. The CPC varies with supply and demand, determined through a self-service auction system. The cheapest option is run of network (RON) adverts (i.e. no targeting), which in some countries may start at US$0.01 CPC. Some blind networks also offer brand advertising, on the CPM model - for marketers that want exposure, maybe to create awareness of a new product. Advertisers should expect a range of self-service tools that help them track and optimize their campaign in real time. Publishers receive a revenue share, perhaps 55-65 percent of what the advertiser pays. Key players in the market: Admoda, AdMob, BuzzCity, InMobi Source: mobiThinking
  7. 7. PREMIUM BLIND AD NETWORKS Higher proportion of premium publishers (i.e. mobile sites of well-known brands, like newspapers, broadcasters or operator portals), than blind networks, some on exclusive relationships. Attract more brand advertising, paid for on CPM model Costs vary considerably – campaigns targeted at top-tier inventory can be as high as US$20 CPM. A lot of advertising will still be blind or semi-blind (i.e. targeted at a channel), but for a premium price you may be able to buy a specific spot on a site of your choice. Performance advertising is also available – and sometimes search advertising (based on key words) – paid for by CPC, for marketers who want an active response to ads. The cheapest option is run of network (RON) adverts (i.e. no targeting), which in some countries may start at US$0.05 - US$0.10 CPC. Advertisers should expect a mix of self-service and direct sales and support and a wealth of targeting options. Publishers should expect to receive a majority share of advertising revenue – percentages are often negotiated on a case-by-case basis. Key players: Millennial Media, Jumptap, Madhouse, Quattro Wireless Source: mobiThinking
  8. 8. PREMIUM AD NETWORKS Premium networks focus on a limited number of prestige publishers – mobile operators and big-brand, big-traffic sites, perhaps newspapers or broadcasters. The vast majority of campaigns are brand advertising, so the predominant (maybe only) pricing model is CPM model. Under CPM, costs vary considerably, ranging from US$5-US$75. Some may also offer performance advertising for marketers who want an active response to their ads paid for by CPC; but expect to pay considerably more than on a blind network as CPC can range from US$0.05-US$0.50. Premium networks attract big brand advertisers who are prepared to pay premium prices to secure the prime locations on top-tier mobile destinations Advertisers should expect more direct sales and support, than self-service and a wealth of targeting options. Publishers should expect to receive a majority share of advertising revenue, perhaps 50–70 percent. Deals are usually negotiated on a case-by-case basis.

  14. 14. WHY ARE OPERATORS GETTING IN THE ADVERTISING GAME • Some have very large “media” audiences in their own right. Many of the largest operators in Europe and in the UK are also media companies or are tightly coupled to media companies. • Several have already been generating advertising revenues from their on-line ISP, portal and IPTV businesses: Orange (Wanadoo), Vodafone Germany (ARCOR), Telefonica (Terra and Imagenio) • Since they own the customer they are the only ones who can provide truly “ad-funded” business models. They can zero rate traffic associated to an ad being delivered on a phone. • Operators have visibility across all mobile media consumption: video, games, music, messaging, browsing, searching, etc. Ultimately, advertisers will be able to build a relationship with mobile consumers and take them on “customer journeys”. • Operators are the only ones who can “frequency cap” across multiple inventory types which is of importance to brands and advertisers. • Operators have more information about their subscribers (age, gender, location, type of billing plan, etc), and can also use this to create relevancy. • Operators (in the short term) have access to new inventory formats that Google, Microsoft and Yahoo! won't. One example of this is peer to peer SMS ad insertion. Here are some exampled of operator driven mobile advertising initiatives:
