Mobile marketing is performing better than traditional advertising

Fiksu research data has indicated that smartphone ads are outperforming those that are more familiar.

Fiksu has now released the findings of its most recent research which have indicated that the cost per engagement of mobile marketing is ten times less expensive than paid search marketing.

This study is only the most recent evidence of how advertising over this channel is succeeding.

In fact, it shows that mobile marketing has pulled ahead of traditional advertising techniques both in affordability and effectiveness. The report, “Brand building on mobile devices: measuring the value of consumer engagement,” involved an analysis of over 2.4 billion app marketing data points from global application brand campaigns that have been implementing promotions through the Fiksu Platform. What it revealed was that compared to traditional channels of advertising, these are considerably more cost effective.

Fiksu also released a new metric for measuring the ROI of mobile marketing of brands.

Mobile Marketing researchAs an element of its study, Fiksu brought in a brand new type of metric that was created to allow companies and brands to better understand the return on investment (ROI) of mobile marketing (the cost per mobile engagement). According to Fiksu, the central findings from this research were the following:

• The mobile marketing CPM (cost per thousand impressions) rates are the second smallest among all of the various forms of advertising – including print, broadcast and digital. The only lower rate is through social media.

• When it comes to major brands, mobile display advertising CPCs (cost per clicks) are up to 90 percent less expensive than desktop pay per click (PPC) campaigns.

• In mobile app advertising, the CPEm (cost per engagement in mobile) for mobile marketing is a tenth of the cost of a keyword click over desktop.

According to the Fisku vice president, Craig Palli, “Brands are waking up to the fact that mobile apps provide an incredible and very cost-effective canvas for marketing. But using CPM and CPC as sole measures of ROI eclipses the powerful engagement that mobile apps bring and which brand marketers seek.” When discussing this mobile marketing study, he went on to say that “Fiksu’s new CPEm metric is a far more meaningful tool for brands to use for planning and decision-making.”

Mobile marketing study shows American consumers enjoy video ads

Recent research is indicating that consumers in the U.S. have greater tolerance for this method than others.

According to a mobile marketing study that was just published, consumers in the United States are considerably more “tolerant” to smartphone video ads than their counterparts in Canada and Europe.

The study indicated that that more than a third of consumers in all three regions don’t pay much attention to the ads.

The research was performed by QuickPlay Media in the form of a survey. It determined that 40 percent or more of consumers in all three of the participating regions don’t pay all that much attention to the mobile marketing videos when these ads are displayed while they watch content on their devices. They also stated, however, that they are not irritated by the ads.

American viewers have the least likelihood of becoming irritated with video mobile marketing.

Mobile Marketing ReportThe study indicated that 62 percent of American smartphone content viewers are unlikely to become irritated with mobile marketing in the form of video ads when they are looking at content on their devices. This was compared to 40 percent of Canadians and 49 percent of British respondents.

Among all three of those countries, 20 percent or more of consumers were willing to pay between $5 and $7 per month in order to be able to gain access to television shows, movies, events, and other content without advertising.

At the same time, when it came to the relevant messaging form of mobile marketing, consumers in all three areas felt that the majority of ads were primarily irrelevant and did not appeal to their own unique interests. In the United States, consumers expressed that less than a third (29 percent) said that they felt that the ads that they saw were at least somewhat relevant to them. In the United Kingdom, that figure dropped slightly to 25 percent. However, among Canadians, only 12 percent felt that the ads that they saw were relevant to them.

According to the QuickPlay Media CEO and president, Wayne Purboo, who discussed the mobile marketing survey, “As more options for watching premium video content emerge for consumers, their particular preferences when it comes to viewing are also coming into focus.”
