Mobile Display Ads Up 128% in Past Two Years

June 9, 2011

The number of US advertisers* using mobile display ad campaigns reached 689 in April 2011, up 128% from two years earlier, according to a study by comScore. Campaigns related to mobile content and publishing comprised the plurality of mobile ads, amounting to 50% as of March 2011, followed by ads for consumer discretionary goods (26%), information technology (7%), and financial services (6%).

Looking for great digital marketing data? MarketingProfs reviewed hundreds of research sources to create our most recent Digital Marketing Factbook (May 2010), a 296-page compilation of data and 254 charts, covering email marketing, social media, search engine marketing, e-commerce, and mobile marketing. Also check out The State of Social Media Marketing, a 240-page original research report from MarketingProfs.

Smartphone users are driving most of the growth in the mobile ad space. Some 82.3% of smartphone users accessed their mobile Web browsers as of March and 85.0% used apps, whereas 19.1% of feature phone owners used their handset's browsers and 15.9% used apps.

Due to their heavier use of mobile browsers and apps, smartphone users are also more likely than feature-phone users to view Web or in-app ads (27.5% vs. 5.0%) and respond to SMS ads (7.7% vs. 3.5%).

The opportunity to reach consumers via mobile channels continues to improve: 31% of mobile users now own a smartphone, up from just 20% one year earlier.
