  • Generally speaking, mobile advertising works best for inexpensive, low-consideration products as people are looking to consume information fairly quicklyDownloading music, finding places to dine, Ordering a Quick Meal, Purchasing Movie Tickets, etc.Choose specific mobile devices like the Android phone, iPhone/iPod touch and palm webOS or a specific carrier like At&T, Sprint, etc.Searchers will not be typing up a storm. Target shorter queries that people can easily type on their phones. Voice SearchPeople may share desktops or computers. Mobiles are more personal and hence gives a better reflection of persons individuality. Users tend to click on targeted ads more on mobile phones since metrics like ad awareness, message association and purchase intent is better conveyed here
  • These networks attract a higher proportion of brand advertising, paid for on CPM basisThey tend to be medium-sized, with a higher proportion of premium publishers (i.e. big-traffic mobile sites of well-known brands, perhaps newspapers, broadcasters or operator portals), some on exclusive relationshipsA lot of advertising will still be blind, but for a premium price you may be able to buy a specific spot on a site of your choice. Costs vary considerably – quotes can be as high as US $20 CPMPerformance advertising is also available – and in some cases, search advertising (based on key words) – paid for by CPCSome networks offer cost per action/acquisition (CPA) – where the advertiser only pays if the customer clicks through and then buys, signs up etc.

  • http://www.trafficspaces.com/blog/2009/03/17/when-it-comes-to-text-ads-a-picture-says-a-thousand-words/What’s the difference between a  Facebook text ad and a Google text ad? Well it is simple really. Google ads are plain old text ads whilst Facebook ads have little pictures attached that help to illustrate the text.Personally, I love picture text ads. I think they are a great way for advertisers to grab people’s attention and convey a message to their target audience in a way that a plain old text ad just can’t do anymore.In our ad management system – Trafficspaces, we made a conscious decision to support Picture in Text Ads by default. It was a no-brainer. Here are the two main reasons why:1. Ad BlindnessPlain Old Text Ads are ubiquitous and have lost their novelty. There are way too many of them across the web and after a while, they all tend to look the same.  This is bad news for advertisers. Pay Per Click or no Pay Per Click, advertisers are interested in results.  If people are just going to “not see” the ads, then they are a waste of time for both publisher and advertiser.2. The Craigslist EffectI’m not sure if you experience this as well. Whenever I search for something on Craigslist, or any other classified listings site, I always tend to seek out the ads that have pictures first. It is just instinctive. Sometimes, I even amend the search tool to only show ads with pictures.It isn’t surprising. Our perceptive senses are highly tuned towards pictures over text. Why spend time reading a whole load of text when you can get the same message with a picture.
  • An easy way to look at it is to understand that in Google you’re targeting people that are further down the sales funnel while Facebook targets the entire conversion funnel that includes demand harvesting demand generation.
