Mobile games serve as powerful marketing platforms

Firm highlights potential of mobile gaming

Mediabrix, a mobile and social gaming advertising firm, has been heralding the potential of mobile games for some time. These games have become resoundingly popular among consumers around the world and, as such, have also become very attractive advertising platforms. The marketing potential of mobile gaming has yet to be fully actualized, but Medibrix has been showing the revenue generation capability of gaming advertisements and how effective in-game ads can actually be.

In-game ads reach $200 CPM

Mediabrix has reported that its in-game advertisements are generating $200 CPM across multiple platforms, 180 times greater than that produced by traditional advertisements. CPM denotes the rate that marketers will pay to have their ads hosted on a particular platform. The higher the CPM, the more valuable the platform is to marketers. According to data provided by Mediabrix, mobile games may be one of the most valuable marketing platforms there is.

Popularity of mobile games proves successful for advertisersmobile games marketing

The value of mobile games is linked to their popularity among consumers. These games are both easy to obtain, as most of them are free, and easy to play. Because of their mobility, these games can be played anywhere and at any time. Moreover, consumers tend to jump from game to game relatively quickly, exposing themselves to a wide variety of games as well as the advertisements that these games host.

Fickleness of consumers may be bad for developers

Despite the apparent potential of mobile games, monetization of these games has been a difficult issue for many startups. New and independent development firms often fail in their monetization efforts because their mobile games are not able to find traction with consumers. Notably, the way consumers move from one game to another in quick succession has created a turbulent environment wherein developers have a difficult time holding the attention of a particular gamer long enough to generate any significant revenue.

Social and mobile games have a major impact on mobile marketing

Mediabrix, a leading social and mobile advertising firm, has released new data concerning mobile marketing. The data highlights the advertisements that are seen through social mobile games and their performance in terms of consumer engagement. Social games have become very popular with consumers, which has made them equally popular with advertisers. Advertising in mobile games has also been extremely successful in recent years, suggesting that engaging mobile consumers, especially those that play games on their smartphones and tablets, is the best way to reach people through marketing campaigns.

In-game ads have higher click-through rate than normal ads

According to the data from Mediabrix, advertisements in social and mobile games have a higher click-through than other advertisements. These ads see an average click-through rate of 11%, 100 times higher than the rate seen through normal advertisements. Engagement in these advertisements is also significantly higher, beating out the engagement seen through web-based advertisements coming from companies like Facebook and Google.

Mobile games entice consumers to engage in marketing

Exactly why consumers are more prone to engage in advertisements in social and mobile games is something of a mystery. Mediabrix suggests that mobile games themselves are highly interactive, making consumers more prone to engage with elements they see on the screens of their smartphones and tablets. Mobile advertisements also have an appeal to those looking to stave off boredom, thus consumers with nothing better to do will engage in these ads for some entertainment.

More than 158 consumers expected to be mobile gamers by 2015

Mediarbix predicts that there will be more than 158 million consumers playing mobile games by 2015, creating major opportunities for advertisers looking to engage the mobile space. Social and mobile games are expected to have a major impact on the world of mobile marketing, especially due to the fact that consumers continue to show that they are more willing to engage in in-game advertisements than any other traditional form of marketing.
