Display is driving mobile ad revenue over smartphones

New data is showing that there has been a growth of 114 percent in that specific area of earnings.

A new report from the Association of Online Publishers (AOP) and business advisory firm, Deloitte, has shown that mobile ad revenues have driven a growth of 114 percent in smartphone display over the span of the previous 12 months.

The data revealed that there was also a great deal of overall growth in earnings from mobile advertising.

Among UK publishers, there was a growth of 80 percent in mobile ad revenue during this year’s first quarter, when compared to the figure from Q1, last year. According to the report, the main driver of this growth was the rapid rise in smartphone display earnings (114 percent), with tablet display ad revenues rising at a healthy but notably lower rate of 47 percent.

The rate of growth that was seen through mobile ad revenue was considerably greater than that of digital overall.

Mobile Ad Revenue - DataIn the AOP & Deloitte Digital Publishers Revenue Index Report (DPRI), it was stated that the overall increase in advertising revenues was 5.6 percent. That rate is slower than it has been over the quarters previous to Q1 2015. Another area in which there has been a steady and promising source of ad revenue has been in online video, where there was a 17 percent higher growth rate recorded by digital publishers than had been seen during the first quarter of 2014.

The desktop display ad revenues, on the other hand, saw a drop of 6 percent in the first quarter of this year when compared to the same quarter last year. This indicates that some of the market that had once belonged to desktop could be moving its way over to the mobile marketing sector, instead. As media consumption occurs over smartphones and tablets at a steadily growing rate, online publishers are starting to realize how important it is not to miss out on targeting those device owners with their advertising, as well.

This marketing trend does not appear to show any indications of slowing and so it is being predicted by a growing number of firms that the path of mobile ad revenue will only continue in its current direction.

Mobile marketing revenues in the U.S. break new records

Local ads are now bringing in more money than they ever have before, and are continuing their rapid increase.

According to a new report that has been released by BIA/Kelsey, the mobile marketing sector’s local advertising revenues in the United States will be reaching $4.5 billion by the end of this year.

This will represent a massive increase over the $2.9 billion that was brought in during 2013.

These details have been published in the mobile marketing local ad revenues report from the firm, which also predicted that these figures will more than triple by the year 2018. At that point, the report predicts that the revenues will have risen to $15.7 billion. This helps to illustrate the importance of local when it comes to advertising online.

The report also showed that mobile marketing spending in the U.S. will rise to $11.4 billion, this year.

That will then continue to grow over the next five years until it reaches $30.3 billion. By the end of the forecast period of this report, mobile ads that are locally targeted will come to represent more than half (52 percent) of all of the mobile ad spending in the United States.Mobile Marketing Revenue

Propelling this localized share of the revenues forward over this channel is the rapid adoption of various tactics to appeal to smartphone users when they are within specific locations or seeking local businesses. These include such options as click to call, click to map, and geo-fencing. These are rapidly becoming more commonplace among national advertisers, who currently make up the majority of ad spending over this channel in the U.S. They are also those that are making the greatest effort to take advantage of the growing availability and yet currently greatly undervalued local advertising category.

Many smaller advertisers have yet to understand that the demand in searches is increasingly headed in a mobile direction as individuals bring their smartphones wherever they go and use them for a growing number of purposes. Therefore, this ad inventory is undervalued, providing an ideal opportunity to step into that mobile marketing space while it is the least expensive and most rewarding to do so.
