In-store visits see 80 percent increase from mobile ads

Within the first day of viewing, these smartphone advertisements generate considerable consumer response.

As mobile ads move from being in their early infancy toward the next phase in their maturity, many companies and marketers are still scrambling to try to find the right metrics to be able to measure their effectiveness.

A new report has now revealed that these smartphone and tablet ads can have a large affect on consumers.

The report was issued by NinthDecimal, a mobile intelligence firm based in San Francisco. What it revealed was that mobile ads that were having an impact on the behaviors of the consumers who saw them, and that this affect was on the rise. The study used data from 2014 in the second and fourth quarters . It measured advertisements displayed through Android and Apple apps, though not those that were displayed by way of web browsers. What was shown in The Mobile Audience Insights Report was that within the first day following the viewing of a mobile advertisement, there was an increase of 80 percent of in-store visits.

The report states that this helps to reveal more about the impact of mobile ads, which had previously gone unmeasured.

Mobile Ads increase in-store visitsIn order to come to this conclusion, NinthDecimal both developed and used a Location Conversion Index, which it calls the first ever measurement of the real world behaviors that are the result of engagement over mobile advertisements. According to the company, it based its data on the results and actions of 1535 mobile users who were selected at random, on top of billions of different data points from campaigns that its clients ran on its platform.

What the outcome of the data analysis found, said the report, was that while the impact of mobile advertising can be a considerable one, it is not consistent from one industry to the next nor is it the same from one store to the next. Distance to the nearest store location also plays a role in the outcomes that were measured.

Interestingly, retail mobile ads, for example, were able to generate the greatest results for driving consumers into brick and mortar shops when those shoppers were already between 2 and 5 miles away from the store when they saw the ad. That represents a success rate that was 24 percent better than the average.

Mobile social media marketing move by Twitter to include ad product for apps

The micro blogging site has announced that it is close to the release of this option.

It has now been revealed that Twitter’s latest initiative in the area of mobile social media marketing will be the release of a new product that will make it possible for app developers to be able to install ads that will help to encourage application downloads.

This format is called an app install ad and its goal is to help to attract more marketers to Twitter.

Specifically, Twitter is seeking to use the mobile social media marketing opportunity to draw marketers from the game and e-commerce industries. Once the ads within mobile Twitter feeds are clicked, the user is redirected to the page of the advertiser within an app store where the application from the ad can be downloaded.

The social network is likely using this mobile social media marketing move to help keep its IPO promises.

At its initial public offering, Twitter had stated that it would be boosting its mobile ad offerings and that is exactly what this step appears to be. Since November, the stock for the company has skyrocketed by 78 percent and analysts are currently predicting that its annual revenue will increase to nearly double, reaching $1.2 billion by the close of this year. This, despite the fact that user growth has been slowing down.Mobiel Social Media Marketing

The mobile channel is a central element to the business at Twitter, as it is over mobile devices that the user base is growing at its fastest rate. Furthermore 75 percent of the company’s ad revenue comes from that channel, alone.

Other social networking companies have been highly successful in the use of app install ads. They were introduced in October 2012 by Facebook and by last year they had brought in 245 million downloads. Candy Crush was advertised by King Digital Entertainment over Facebook and that app has now become one of the most popular games for those devices. King has just experienced its own IPO.

Now, Twitter will be using this mobile social media marketing opportunity for its own purposes and it has been testing its app install ads for a number of weeks to ensure that they are functioning as expected.
