Mobile MarketingAdvertisers see more engagement through mobile games

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.
