Anyone who stills says “mobile advertising is the future” is wrong. Mobile advertising IS advertising. People now spend more time on their mobile devices than on their laptops or desktop computers. Facebook has 2 Billion active users, WeChat has 768 Million Daily Active users and as of January 2017, Twitter had 317 Million MAUs, with 80% of these users accessing from a mobile. Your customers are on mobile!
Even if you don’t market an online product or even have online sales – your business still needs to incorporate mobile marketing and create mobile advertising designs. Why put the effort into creating a mobile ad campaign, designing mobile specific ad banners and putting time money and effort into social media graphic design? Your customers ARE using their mobile and most often it is to check social media. In 2016 Facebook reported that 90% of their users access facebook from a mobile device. Even if your business doesn’t offer online shopping cart, using mobile advertising design to get in front of your customers to create brand awareness and provide quality information they should know about your business is important and can often lead to offline sales.
The ways in which people (and your consumers) use their mobile in their daily life and the avenues now available to target custom designed advertisements and mobile banners speaking directly to a target market segment is both sophisticated and impressive. Facebook allows you to create look-a-like audiences (using their facebook pixel) allowing you to serve your facebook banners and advertising images to an audience who may have never been exposed to your brand but who matches your existing customers. Digital advertising networks can offer powerful re-targeting abilities so you can re-market to target segments based on specific aactions they did or did not take. A basic example would be to use mobile advertising platforms to show everyone who visited your website at least 1x before in the past 30 days a custom banner design with a message specifically for them, while using that same mobile advertising network to serve a different set of banners with a different advertising design and message to people who on the same network who have never been to your website.
As you can see – regardless of if your business is brix n mortar or online, regardless of if you sell a service or a product – it’s not an option NOT to be creating mobile advertising. If this seems overwhelming…well it is and it can be, but it does not HAVE to be. We’ve combiled a list of articles below
