Mobile marketing ad spending on its way up in 2013

Digital ads will represent 22 percent of all American ad spending this year, with mobile at 3.7 percent.

According to the latest report on spending in digital and mobile marketing, online ads will make up 22 percent of all of the U.S. ad spending this year, which represents a considerable growth.

Ads geared toward consumers on smartphones and tablets will also be growing steadily.

This will bring the global ad spending up to a healthy 3.5 percent growth to reach $503 billion by the time this year comes to a close. The amount being directed toward the internet and mobile marketing specifically will only continue to rise. This, according to the latest figures that have been released by ZenithOptimedia, an ad agency owned by Publicis.

Mobile marketing ads will account for 3.7 percent of all ad spending in the U.S. ($6.2 billion).

2013 Mobile Marketing SpendingThe United States is disproportionately the single largest advertising marketplace. The digital spending in that country throughout all of 2013 was predicted by the report to be 21.8 percent of all of the ad spending, which will total $109.7 billion). This is an increase of a very healthy 19 percent over the figure from 2012.

At the same time, mobile marketing does still remain a small fraction of the overall activity, despite its rapid growth, at its 3.7 percent of total ad spending. Equally, it is the most rapidly growing channel in advertising spending, leading the way with a massive 81 percent growth in the American market this year. That rate is expected to slow somewhat, but remain very high at 61 percent growth throughout 2014, and slow a little bit more in 2015, to 53 percent. At that time, it is expected to make up 8.4 percent of all ad spending.

When compared to standard internet advertising, mobile marketing is positively exploding. The report showed that online advertising is growing by about 16 percent this year and will make up 27.8 percent of all American ad spending by the end of 2015. Those figures are just as impressive outside of the U.S. market, where smartphones and tablets are also growing in popularity.

Mobile marketing remains small but booming in Canada

Spending on ads targeting smartphone and tablet users almost doubled last year but still represents a sliver of the total.

Last year in Canada, mobile marketing spending on ads increased at an explosive rate, nearly doubling what it had been the year before, and yet it is still considered to be only a tiny fraction of the overall digital ad marketplace.

That said, if the growth continues at this rate, it won’t take long for this channel to carve a much larger slice.

This mobile marketing data is according to a report that was released by the Interactive Advertising Bureau of Canada. The report indicated that the smartphone ad revenue in 2012 came to $160 million. This was an increase of 97 percent over what it was in 2011. At the same time, revenues from online ads increased by 13 percent, bringing them to $2.9 billion. That still managed to beat the forecasts that had been established by IAB Canada.

This year, both online and mobile marketing ad revenues are expected to rise, but more moderately.

Canada Mobile Marketing ad revenue The digital ad revenues for 2013 are predicted to increase by 9 percent by the close of the year, reaching a total of $3.36 billion. This includes the 50 percent rise that is expected for ads over mobile marketing, which will come to an anticipated $240 million. These forecasts were created based on the advertising budgets that survey respondents provided to IAB Canada. These respondents included ad networks and exchanges, on top of online publishers. Those budgets reflected the first half of the year’s data.

The dollar figures have revealed that while mobile marketing does still have a great deal of potential as a channel over which to advertise, marketers are still only in the earliest stages of figuring out how they will be using the channel to reach their customers over these widespread and yet still quite new devices.

This also reflects a challenge that publishers face in being able to sell adequate advertising over smartphones and tablets in order to be able to recoup sizeable investments into the creation and establishment of their mobile marketing campaigns and smartphone based presence.
