ADI's State Of Digital Advertising: Asia-Pacific

Digital advertising costs continue to rise, according to a new study by Adobe Digital Insights. The report focuses on data from 250 billion visits to over 3,000 websites in the Asia-Pacific region, 3 billion video ad impressions in India, Japan, Australia, and South Korea, and 100 billion responses to paid searches from January 2014 to March 2017. In several countries, consumers spend less time on websites, making first seconds of engagement crucial for advertising effectiveness.

Data from different Adobe solutions: Based on analysis of aggregated and anonymous data Adobe Analytics Adobe Media Optimizer Adobe Analytics Cloud Adobe Advertising Cloud Adobe Marketing Cloud
  2. 2. © 2017 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. Key Insights 1 Digital advertising costs continue to rise, and search costs have increased 2x faster than inflation in the past two years. 2 Competition for consumer attention and new site visitors will increase as topline growth starts to slow and time on site decreases. 3 The digital disconnect persists. Marketers rate themselves better than consumers do for delivering relevant and interesting ads. Consumers desire personalization, but delivery and privacy issues exist. 4 Advertisers are still not organized to deliver on consumer’s advertising expectations and lag behind US counterparts in terms of automatic/programmatic spend. 5 Without growing markets, pressure mounts on brands to protect their loyal consumer base and to steal from the competition.
  3. 3. © 2017 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. EMBRACING THE OPTIONS Slowing Growth Means Competition Will Heat Up on the Smartphone Battlefield As the internet saturates abroad, competition for traffic will become necessary  Total visits to APAC websites increased 36% over the past 36 months, but the trend is slowing down – quickly Smartphone is the primary device for connecting to brands  Smartphone visits increased +145% since 2014, while visits from desktops and tablets eroded (-9% and -5%, respectively)  This trend pushed total mobile share of traffic to 54% in Q1 2017 4
  4. 4. © 2017 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. EXPENSE OF ADVERTISING Search Costs Outpace Inflation by 2x Cost per click continues to exceed inflation  Inflation in APAC: 6.3% since 2013  Search CPCs rose sharply in 2014 and then retreated to current rates: desktop 11%, mobile 16% (relative to Q4 2013) Advertising costs began to outpace inflation with the advent of the digital era  The cost of reaching consumers on traditional TV began outpacing inflation in the late 1990’s when technology started changing our lives 5
  5. 5. © 2017 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. A SHIFT FROM THE TRADITIONAL Search Remains a Tried-and-True Channel for Acquiring Site Traffic 6 Search traffic continues to grow faster than spend in Asia-Pacific, unlike the trends in the US  Advertisers have increased spend on search by +6% over the past two years  Site visits driven by search have increased by +30% indicating more bang for the buck  The US may be a harbinger of things to come - it costs more money to get less traffic in the US’s saturated market As traffic moves to smartphones, consumers spend less time on web sites  Indian consumers changed their patterns the most, spending 47 (-12%) fewer seconds on site  Hong Kong and Japan saw decreases in time spent similar to those in the US  HK: -19 seconds (– 5% YoY)  Japan: -17 seconds (-4% YoY)  US: -18% seconds (-6% YoY)
  6. 6. © 2017 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. DIGITAL VIDEO AD OPPORTUNITY Marketers Continue to Deploy Mobile Video Ads As Costs Increase 7 Mobile video ad campaigns cost 36% more than last year; desktop CPMs are down 13%  Q4 2016 showed equal growth in the delivery of mobile and desktop-formatted ads (+7% YoY) There’s the risk of losing attention as mobile video ad completion is 24% lower than on a desktop (55% vs. 68%, respectively)  Asia-Pacific consumers are pickier than their US counterparts, completing 4% fewer videos on mobile, and 9% fewer on desktop  Some factors are involved that advertisers need to consider:  Skippable and auto-play preferences  Better targeting and fewer impressions delivered relative to the audience
  7. 7. © 2017 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. FIRST IMPRESSIONS Advertisements Must Pique Interest During Critical First Few Seconds 8 Opening seconds are critical for capturing attention • 22% of viewers move on after a mobile video ad has played for five seconds • The US figure (19%) is slightly lower Consumers might be missing the point of the advertisement • Just over half (55%) of 30 second mobile ads are viewed to the end • The “call to action” is completely missed if placed at the end of an ad – this raises the effective cost of mobile video ads
  8. 8. © 2017 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. CONSUMERS CONTROL THE DRIVER’S SEAT New Customer Traffic Coming From Emerging Channels More and More 9 Generations recognize interesting and relevant ads in different environments  Younger generations equate social media to the source of new information (41%)  Older generations are most likely to notice relevant ads when browsing for information (47%) Social continues to grow, up 33% in Travel and 31% in Retail  Traffic generated from social networks is only the tip of the iceberg given its strength in branding
  9. 9. © 2017 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. THE DIGITAL DISCONNECT Advertisers Often Think They Are Doing Better But Consumers Don’t Agree 10 Consumers’ opinion: there’s room for improvement  Less than half of the consumers think advertisers are doing better than 2 years ago at delivering relevant ads In Australia and India, advertisers disagree with consumers on advertising performance  Marketers believe they are doing a better job than consumers do  Australia: 51% to 38%  India: 63% to 48%  South Korea: 48% to 50% Similar gap in the US  Over half (58%) of advertisers believe they’re doing better at serving valuable ads; only 38% of consumers agree
  10. 10. © 2017 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. THE DIGITAL DISCONNECT Personalization Gap: Desire – Delivery = Opportunity 11  Over half of consumers prefer personalization  Nearly 2 out of 3 (65%) of the 18-34 prefer ads based on their interests/preferences  Even the oldest segment favors personalization over not doing it  The gap between “not good enough” and “want it” suggests room for improvement  The gap is large enough among both age groups to warrant experimentation, particularly among 18-34 Desire is there. Delivery is mixed.  A third of the younger group doesn’t believe personalization is done well enough  Older consumers are more likely to be against any personalization, though 1 in 5 (22%) think advertisers can improve Opportunity exists.
  11. 11. © 2017 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. Less than half of consumers are comfortable with exchanging personal data for customized experiences  1.2x higher among younger consumers (47%) than older consumers (38%) Belief that marketers respect privacy is even lower – just 1 in 3 (33%) agree with the statement  1.1x higher among younger consumers (35%) than older consumers (31%) 12 DATA SHARING Privacy Issues Present a Road Block to Personalization
  12. 12. © 2017 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. 13 I see your product…so what?  Consumers are most likely attracted by ads that focus on product benefits  Consumers say that personalized, funnier ads would also improve their experience PERSONALIZATION Consumers Seek Practical, Personal Ads Leverage where consumers expect good advertising  57% say Facebook is the social media site doing the best job of showing them interesting and relevant ads

  14. 14. © 2017 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. 15 Advertising still a manual process in APAC  Fewer than 1 in 5 APAC advertisers (19%) spends more then 51% of their budget programmatically. In the US it is 1 in 3.  There’s an opportunity to learn from early adopters and effectively grow their programmatic ad presence across channels Put money where there is growth  Smartphone investments need to improve; 75% of APAC marketers think they underinvested in smartphone advertising AUTOMATED MARKETING APAC Lags Behind US In Programmatic Ad Spend
  15. 15. © 2017 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. 16 Return on ad spend (ROAS) tops list of marketer concerns  ROAS is the most cited concern when it comes to media buying in APAC, with over 50% saying it’s an area in which they face the biggest challenge Brand marketers are more concerned than their supply-side counterparts  Regarding ROAS, brand marketers across all surveyed APAC countries are the most concerned GETTING YOUR MONEY’S WORTH Marketers Need To Know The Value of Their Investments
  16. 16. © 2017 Adobe Systems Incorporated. All Rights Reserved. Adobe Confidential. THE LONG TERM DECISION Make Sure to Protect the Base and Get to Conversion 17 Customers tend to stick with their favorite sites, and they return often  8 out of 10 customers are likely return  In the US, only 7 out of 10 are likely to return Visitor drop off is harder to tackle  Only 1 out of 4 visitors (non-customers) will come back if they didn’t buy/order an item  US non-customers are more likely to return, with 3 out of 10 choosing to do so  Marketers should ensure targeting attracts the right customer and that the experience creates the desire to return
